Game 16, February 17th



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

Slightly different screenshot 'cause the client crashed so I couldn't get the endscreen.

Everyone in champ select was cooperating. I picked Swain early on, somewhat stupidly as I knew Lux kinda countered Swain, but it ended up being Leblanc mid. Hec got a lot of ganks off and was beginning to carry their team. Once bot lane's tower fell early though, mid fell shortly after and we became a roaming force.

LB was shut down early on and Voli had a lot of issues top against Rumble. Bot lane did really well, although I wasn't watching them. 0/7 Vayne kinda says everything.

Game 17, February 20th



Bans: Darius, Cho'Gath, Singed / Malphite, Blitzcrank, Amumu

Interesting champ select where our last pick wanted to support, which was nice honestly. Everyone got the roles they wanted and it went smoothly. Once the game started, things went slightly sour with a couple small mistakes in lane where I missed kills by about an auto-attack. Once real fights and other ganks started though, I started racking up kills. I got an early Avarice Blade to accelerate my build since I wasn't getting a lot of kills. It ended up working out as I was miles ahead of Ez at every point of the game. The 2 deaths I had were from me getting caught by Fizz. We almost lost the game on account of Vi who was making us fight 3v5 fights almost all the time. When they got baron, we just stalled it out because they never made any real use of it, then pushed to win after a good teamfight.

Moved to Silver II with that game. Next stop, Gold V.

Ali is actually a pretty decent counter to Graves.

He uses Quickdraw to get in, you Headbutt him out. Or, just pulv him so he can't do anything like that.

Ez was kinda bad though as he was terrible at CS-ing. Early game, I remember having about 30 or so CS on him. We were barely zoning.

Anaginst short range and melee supports I guess. But I consintently see people pick him against Sona and get poked out of lane over and over.

Idk, I recently played with an Ali supporting me as Tristana and he was amazing, he got me so fed. I remember thinking "What the ****, why isn't he played more". But maybe Tristana has better synergy with Alistar than most ADC's, dunno.

I laugh at enemy Alistar supports with Thresh. He can't do anything about ranged supports, despite what people may believe.
"Lol Alistar counters Thresh/ Blitzcrank because if he grabs him-" stop that. It's a lie, and no self-righteous Thresh or Blitzcrank player would ever attempt to hook an Alistar. They simply have better kits and more utility at their disposal.

But that's just how I look at it. XD

I've haven't seen an Alistar support since early Season Two. And I haven't seen a jungle Alistar since mid-way Season Two. For me, Alistar, once permabanned in ranked, has dropped off the face of the world.

Congrats on Tier II, Lugi! ^^
