Last couple games, there was a Xerath game in between them that I forgot to screenshot, 11-4-14 but we lost because of a series of idiotic throws courtesy mainly of our Warwick who went hardcore Brasil mode the whole game and finished around 2-13. Sitting at 8 LP now.

AP Tristana is broken as hell, thank goodness its a (relatively) hidden OP that not many people can do well. Honestly that was the dumbest laning experience of my life, brought 5 health potions to lane at the start and was still instantly shoved out by her ridiculous harass, and if I got anywhere close to her she would 100-0 me with one combo, this was before she was even fed at all. Gave her one kill in laning but she picked up a couple more in an early dragon fight and just snowballed to absolute **** from there; we couldn't get near her at all since Rammus and Shen both had 300+ armor and a boatload of cc between them. Even if we did get to her she had her jump, flash, and zhonyas so killing her was out of the question. Classic example of four undeserving idiots being carried HARD to a free win; must be nice. 0 LP now, can't be more than two losses from demotion, more likely only one since I lost a couple at 0 LP a couple days ago.

Idk why I thought that would work...



It was pretty much over when I accidentaly counterpicked myself by picking Nasus into a Riven. I saw them pick a Fiora who at the last second switched to Volibear and figured he was top, wasn't paying a whole lot of attention and didn't notice the Riven until after I had locked in. Udyr came for a level 3 gank that looked about perfect since Riven was overextended, we chased her into her bush and ran straight into Volibear who had apparently been sitthing there waiting to gank me. Riven killed us both with help from Voli since they had a health advantage and although Riven did die to Udyr under our tower she still snowballed into oblivion off of those kills. Meanwhile my brother dies three times in lane and feeds their Lux out of control as well, not much we could do really.


The worst part about this though was that somehow the ******ed Riot matchmaking decides to make my unranked brother first pick and put me last pick because screw logic. Also despite the fact he has the skill level/knowledge of a Bronze IV or V he somehow went 9-1 or something in placements and is now Silver IV...aka ahead of me. Its not a huge deal since he'll undoubtedly fall down to Silver V 0 LP very quickly if he plays consistently, but its still irritating that he's "higher elo" than me.

thanks, I'll need it at this point. I won a game last night with Talon and didn't screenshot, but somehow my MMR has gotten so ****py that it only gave me 17 LP for the win and so I didn't jump straight into a series like everyone does when they get demoted. I know I can win games almost on demand if I can get Talon mid but the problem at this elo is everyone thinks they're Alex Ich and minimum three people call mid in every champ select a lot of the time; so if I'm anything less than second pick I have no chance of getting mid whatsoever and I have to do something I'm not that good at like Jungle.


Thinking of playing Talon in jungle and maybe even top sometimes if I can't get mid, I'm good enough with him that at this elo its a guaranteed win almost so why not just play him as much as possible? I was spectating a friend of mine's game (this was at a Platinum level) and his first pick played jungle Talon and ended up HARD carrying and forcing the enemy team to surrender not long after 20 so it could be worth a shot. The only way I won't be able to one shot the enemy adc is if I get extreeeeemely far behind but if I just play it safe and farm like crazy I won't even need kills to get scary amounts of damage, plus my ganks would be pretty devastating once I get The Brutalizer or Tiamat.

Talon jungle is viable if you can't get mid, but I dunno if I'd EVER recommend playing him top lane. Top lane tends to be insta-loss for Talon, or at least he has to miss out on tons of CS to be able to survive the lane, as he can't afford to give his enemy many chances to engage on him until the enemy is low and Talon's full burst is up.

Obviously I recommend mid over jungle, but jungle's fine. You have the downside of being a weaker jungler than most junglers, but the upside of... well... being Talon. :P

Edit: Congrats on raising your Talon win ratio by the way. :P You were 10 wins negative when I searched you up after you made this thread, now you're 2 wins positive. :P

Top lane would be sketchy at best, but you have to remember I'm now Silver V again with an MMR that puts me with a 50/50 mix of Silver V/Bronze I or II so as long as it wasn't something totally brutal like Riven or Lee Sin I'm sure I could do alright since there's a 99% chance he'll be ******ed. But jungle actually sounds promising, I would think an E. Lizard rush followed by Tiamat and mobility boots would allow for extreme ganking and some pretty fast clear times as well, I'd probably grab a Warmog's or GA as a last item instead of MOAR damage since I'm not the mid laner but other than that it'd be all damage probably and I could just do my usual routine of one shotting their adc and whoever else is unfortunate enough to be standing nearby. Only potential problem would be the fact that if I had my blue stolen by an invade at level one I'd be utterly screwed, so its kind of easy to shut down.

Well that was...interesting. We won but it had nothing to do with me, or anyone but Miss Fortune for that matter. Basically their entire team was flaming Ez for giving up first blood and then he played badly after that and MF snowballed so hard they had completely given up ten minutes in. All of my deaths were me diving people randomly out of boredom since we had absolutely no chance of losing. Jungle Talon is pretty fun though actually, and although this game their top and bottom couldn't be ganked since they were always dead the ganks I did do were quite effective. Very weak level 1-3 though, so an invade would be catastrophic.
