Game 2, January 22nd



Bans Malphite, Kha'Zix, Shen/ Amumu, Blitzcrank, some**** that doesn't matter



Still more jungle Maokai as he is simply my best champion. Slight misstep when I didn't insta-kill the little lizards at blue with sapling stacking. Every thing else went smooth though. Lots of kills back and forth along with a stupid Fiora solo top. Lost lane hard to Elise and had me camp top a lot to help her get back in the game. It was worth it since their Noct was camping bot almost 24/7. The final fight was perfect as Cait wandered just a bit to close to me and I Twisted Advanced into her. She flashed into her team and Ori followed up on me with a Command: Shockwave for the ace at their tower and the push to win.

yeah, i had compleetely forgotten about Orianna's support capabilities to iniciate, in my guide, and this game clearly shows what an important complement she is. GJ.

Game 3, January 22nd




Bans: Amumu, Shen, Talon/ Blitzcrank, Malphite, Katarina

Well...This went sour fast. Our Wukong had never laned against Kennen and our support Sona was just terrible. A couple of bad calls by Sona got her killed a lot and she pretty much gave up after a while. Bad teamfights and bad calls by me dropped it further into the hole.

Basically, things went bad and we couldn't pull it back up.

you should camp lanes where people know what they're doing/are doing well already. Mind you with the rest of your team I'm not even sure who you would've wanted to camp.

I /think/ I ended up camping top that game, although that term's being used real loosely.

Every time I got a kill, or someone else did, in another lane, someone else died.

Best kill that match, which I for w/e reason remembered now, was when I ganked Kennen right after his ward disappeared.

Spirit of the Ancient Golem is pretty expensive. I've been skipping it and just buying mercs against teams that have too much CC for me to ignore. Instead of blowing gold on the upgrade, you can just keep Spirit Stone and rush Glacial Shroud, Shurelya's Battlesong, Aegis of the Legion or Sunfire Aegis.

Game 4, January 23rd



Bans: Blitzcrank, Malphite, Darius/ Amumu, Shen, Kha'Zix


Don't want to talk about this one. Team argued in the champ select and we had AP Yi in the jungle who rarely ganked whereas their jungle Lee Sin had presence in every lane, all the time. We made a bad call at dragon to 4 man it while Yi was defending top turret which gave their Lee a chance to smite steal it and their Kass to get a triple kill. Everything snowballed down from that as well as other flaming and we ended with a S@20.

EDIT: I recall I was like, the only one warding my lane too. Lee had free reign because of so little wards.

Well, a little bit of a back and forth this game. Nunu solotop vs Lee Sin where I was killing him if I just went all in. He won trades because I didn't have a lot of AP most of the game. By the time I got AP, we were starting teamfights. Nobody had any real focus and I wasn't tanky enough to survive a full ult. If I did, it didn't do enough damage to make up for my team not focusing the right targets.

In hindsight, they had too much CC for me to pick Nunu, yet I did anyway. If I had played him support, things might've gone better since I could've spent time shutting down Vayne who got decently fed at the end of laning phase.

Other reasons we lost is that our Jax decided to go off alone a lot so, we were fighting constant 4v5s.

I don't think Mao jungle is as strong as he was in s2. He's still good but he just gets beat by other jungles now with the changes like Amumu, Cho, etc. gl in yoloq though bro
