Ranked game results so far!


So, started up ranked again after the nice little ELO reset and ending about 13XX last season. All games are after my placements and I'm aiming for like, low gold as a worst case scenario and low plat at a best case. Probably not going to have a lot of time to play though because of school and trying to get a job and other...****ty... life things, but I will play to the best of my ability otherwise!

Current Division: Platinum 4


Game 1, January 12th


Bans Blitzcrank, Amumu, Evelynn/ Malphite, Kha'Zix, Shen

Jungle Maokai game that started off sour when their Olaf stole my wraiths/red early on. Seeing double cleanse on the ADCs was a bit weird, until I remembered that both teams had good, deadly CC ( Twisted Advance, Dazzle/ Aegis of Zeonia) Olaf ganked bot at level 2 and got nothing. Seeing as I couldn't turn it around from where I was, I just continued farming the jungle. Another gank went sour for him and I started camping bot. It worked out giving me first blood right before our Garen got a kill. All in all, we snowballed hard and made very few mistakes. They didn't have a coherent team who could make use of their buffs.

Maokai's stats in ranked, 3/1


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Don't take this the wrong way, but what makes you think you can reach platinum if your rating at the end of last season was 13XX? Is it a case of you improving a lot since playing those games, not having played a lot of ranked last season or........?

Good luck ^^

I literally stopped playing at about 13XX. Now that I think about it, I think I was just barely 1400.

Early plat is...1800 or something, right?

But, yea. I've improved a lot since last season. Better mechanics overall, larger varieties of champs to play as well as roles.

I think you should have bought mobility boots or mercury treads this game, because olaf and pantheon do not rely on autoattacks, rather their abilities. If you felt u were lacking armor, randuins would give you enough.

Mobility boots especially on a gank jungler is the best choice in my opinion. Just my thoughts.

Normally I would have, but everyone had boots 2 by that point and, I needed another source of armor. This was not my standard Maokai game by a long shot.

I didn't really have enough money until late game, after "securing" a double kill, to build any big items as my team didn't really need my help with lanes so, I couldn't gank. I did however win bot lane with the first blood.

you should have bought boots of mobility before finishing other items then, as it allows you to have more presence. I watch stonewall, who always gets boots of mobility before upgrading his machete.
yolo, teemo to strong in low elo

I too find Maokai very slow and i prefer buying Boots of Mobility for him. His ganks become a bit scarier.

For anyone asking...

http://gyazo.com/a35804972676fa9d8beba77ebfde335b

That's what I have for runes

And that's what I have for masteries.

It serves me well in terms of speed.
