Well I decided to make one of these threads to document my ranked journey from here on in. The main purpose of it I suppose is to improve my personal play by forcing myself to take a deep breath after every loss and analyze what really happened as opposed to just blaming teammates and brushing it off. Again, this is less about how much I can climb and more just about making myself a better teammate/player since I really do get mad and blame teammates far too easily.

My current elo is Silver V, which is about as good as I could hope for given my 13 game losing streak waaay back in preseason that dropped me from ~1350 to ~995 elo. I spent way too much time feeling sorry for myself in Bronze and have only recently pulled myself out by Spamming Talon finally realizing I only had myself to blame. ANYWAYS I just thought this could be a fun way to stay active in the community and possibly learn a thing or two. First games coming soon!

A wonderful start to a very promising ranked journey. Had my red stolen by Jax at the beginning of the game, which put me slightly behind but I caught up pretty quickly so it wasn't a huge deal in the end. Our Annie was one of the most toxic people I've ever played with, idk what her problem was but she just had it in for me from the start. We were doing quite well in the early-mid game but we failed to take enough objectives and so they turned it around quick. In the end we lost because the AoE from Rumble and Kennen was just too much and we melted in teamfights. That's now my sixth loss in a row and I'm right back at 0 LP. How nice.

Personally I needed to be ganking more early on, Jax was definitely beating me there. It was good that I didn't fight back when Annie started flaming me (mostly because it was for completely no reason lol), the fact that I just ignored her led to the rest of my team being on my side and politely telling her to shove it. Anyways, needed to take more objectives and be slightly more active early on; our team fighting was also quite sloppy and I really should've focused more on protecting our carries as opposed to diving onto their team.

Played Two Talon games late last night, forgot to screenshot both; won the first and lost the second despite the second being a potentially even easier win than the first. The enemy team was just awful. However our last pick had other ideas, he was duo with our third pick and they were both begging our second last pick to let him go top because he was "really OP at top" but our second last pick wouldn't hear of it and went Singed top anyway. So our last pick then announces he's never played support (the last open role) in his life and doesn't know how, so he decided on doing a kill lane as Wukong with a Vayne as our adc. However when the game started he just went top and refused to listen to our pinging and begging of him to go bottom (haven't seen **** like this since Bronze III, and rarely even then) so we had a duo top for a while which cost Singed xp and caused him to die twice to their Lee Sin after Wukong finally did go bottom. And when he did go bottom, he began stealing cs from Vayne and was taking as many kills as possible when they came. Despite my continually urging him to buy a Locket of the Iron Solari or Shurelyas or SOMETHING he just ignored me and built pure damage along with his duo who was our Yi jungle.

All that aside, we STILL would've won had our 12 year old duo queue not decided on repeatedly doing ******ed turret dives after we had won fights and just dying over and over in increasingly stupid ways; they really just did not care about the game at all. They both had a fair amount of kills but had even more deaths and meanwhile our Vayne was horribly behind due to Wukong taking all her cs/kills. Completely stupid game that should've been an easy win, but sometimes you just get people who are absolutely determined to throw the game and will stop at nothing to make your team lose.

As for what I could've done better? I should have just dodged. Honestly this game was one of those cases where I did everything I could but it just wasn't enough, stomped their Swain in lane and quickly went 4-0 by roaming everywhere I could, however as dumb as the enemy team was they knew their only chance of winning was their mega-fed Sivir, and so if I went anywhere near her I would get hit with 5 different CC's and either die or have to quickly flash.

Wow. That was probably the most ridiculous win of Season 3 so far. Volibear was afk for the first 80% of the game...and yet somehow we were still winning. Their Sivir was possibly the worst adc I've ever seen, brought no armor runes to lane and pretty much just fed the whole time. Leona wasn't much better, missing about 99% of her E's and nonstop flaming Sivir in all chat. So we were taking turrets, had triple thier kills, I was getting fed and we were acing them 4v5 while maybe losing one person in return. We did lose one fight due to getting split up but we took two of them with us and soon after Volibear came back and as soon as he got a few levels it was over for them.

Sigh. I just cannot get a winning streak going, as soon as I win one I lose the next game or even two. Played reasonably well in all three games, way too many deaths in the last one though; but their Rengar was insanely strong and could 1-shot me from his ult before I could do anything, most of my deaths were that way. Last game we lost because their Rengar and Tristana would just rip our team apart while the other three would basically just sit and watch. Our Draven was ******ed and my team would melt too fast for me to assassinate anyone. GG.

Edit: There was one other Talon loss in between the first two that I forgot to screenshot.

I don't want to sound like a douche but your Talon build is kinda mediocre.

Psttt, that's Vapora Dark's build, roughly. It works and fairly well, I might add.

the only thing "mediocre" in the build is the CDR boots, id get different boots personally other than that thats probably the better talon builds if youre good at using the item actives

but yeah your build has 0 survivability other than the hp regen from tiamet and the hp you would get if you finished TBC, so i highly suggest getting the tenacity boots for some MR and tenacity to escape some CC
