Hey guys! Now that I've finally reached Diamond 5, I will be detailing my climb to Diamond 1/Challenger until the end of season 4! (It's a necessity in order to detail what I'm doing wrong and need to fix!)

"I'm NateDog13! I started playing league during season 1, but I didn't really play it for too long and I didn't really take it seriously, the same thing can be said from the very start of season 2 until 3 months before the end of season 3. I got stuck in silver 1 and I was frustrated by being there for a good 3 month period and from there I wanted to strive as far as challenger. I was watching the LCS and I was just stricken by how awesome people played at that level and I figured I could do it too. So I started my climb from Bronze 1/Silver 5 and in a 4 month period, I'm now Diamond 5!"

"My Roles (In Order of Strength): ADC (Main), Mid, Support, Jungle, Top"

Season 1: Solo Bronze 1
Season 2: 3v3 Gold 1, Solo Silver 5
Season 3: 3v3 Diamond 5, Solo Gold 1, 5v5 Gold 3
Season 4: Solo Diamond 5 (Currently)

Match 1



Role: Top
Champion: Shyvana
Win/Lose Lane?: Won Lane in CS, Two Top Turrets, 0/2 End In Lane Vs Shen

Problems: Holy smokes lane phase was rough, this Shen was doing heaps of damage. In hindsight I should have just gone straight for a spirit visage after negatron + cutlass, idk what I was thinking but I ended up picking chain vest and negatron together instead of beefing my health up so that left me behind him by like 600 hp. My global presence was really terrible as well. I ran teleport with the intention of ganking bot lane/keeping up with Shen. But Janna never had any wards up due to the pressure Khaz/Ezreal/Leona had bot so I couldn't really do much but keep pushing and wait for my moment during teamfight phase.

Good Things: I don't know why, but I always have trouble during laning phase no matter what, I usually counteract this with really good teamfighting and this really came into play. Every teamfight I set up a 5 man dragon push back leaving my team with no problems from Leona, keeping Ezreal back and taking damage from me via BOTRK and keeping Khazix Grag and Shen doing nothing with Randuins. Granted I went negative, but my assists show just how large an impact I made (considering Janna and Lee had 11 and I had 0 by the time teamfighting came around *thumbs up*. We also had extreme objective control and beat them to everything but 1 dragon.

All in all I would say that it was extremely well played on both teams parts, I did instigate when the enemy Leona was killed by me by saying I was going to report Khaz for leaving her behind, she agreed and then proceeded to go on tilt, causing Ezreal to join in, and eventually Gragas did as well and by the end they were all raging in all chat and basically dysfunctional as a team. Mind games too stronk :3

Match 2


Role: ADC
Champion: Lucian
Win/Lose Lane?: Lost Lane in CS, Lost First Bot Turret, 0/4 End In Lane Vs Cait and Thresh

Problems: This match was god awful. I ended 1/5/2. It's come to my attention that chances are I'm never gonna win lane bot unless I end up duoing with supports that I know. Its too hard to get people who even play support, let alone know the role at the level that I'm playing at. My Leona was basically raging at me and saying that I'd never played ADC in my life and after I had said that I did main it, he's like "God I hate playing bot lane, I don't even play support and my adc's always lose lane." ... This is why I'm starting to get irritated with my role (-.-). The worst part is knowing that he lost us lane. His logic at level 2 was "We were level 2 why didn't you follow up my all in?" Take note he all in'd a Cait who was a little past the end of their second bush and in a spot where I had no cover from minions to dodge thresh hooks, nor her to dodge them. The outcome was first blood as you can guess and it only got worse from there. Adding on to this horrible match, Our Nasus was a racist toxic player spewing out slurs and putting everybody on the team. Mid lane did alright and top lane lost as Garen vs Riven. Nobody on the team wanted to listen to stall out the game and everyone just wanted to keep jumping into outnumbered fights to lose. Terrible Match.

Good Things: N/A.

(Didn't save the match picture because the awful conversation that happened afterwards with Nasus in lobby chat was not worth showing.)

Match 3


Role: ADC
Champion: Sivir
Win/Lose Lane?: Win Lane in CS, Two Bot Turrets, 4/1/ End In Lane w/Sona Vs Vayne and Thresh

Problems: Gragas was a huge pain in the butt. I could deal with thresh hooks no problem. Most of my spell shields were on point with only one being off (and of course that got my team nearly destroyed. woops.) But all around there weren't any real problems.

Good Things: We got every objective no problem. We beat them to every drag, every baron, and every turret. We only lost the first top turret and basically dominated the game due to superior mechanics, good calls from our hecarim and wicked team synergy. It was a great match, and a lane that I hadn't actually lost because my support could actually play as well as I did <3. Sona felt the same way, struggling with ADC's she had to deal with as well. Obviously this shows that bot lane is only ever the roughest lane because of how much synergy you need between two people who have never met or talked. It also doesn't help that some people who get stuck supporting don't even know the mechanics of the lane @.@ ggggggggggg. Great match overall though ^-^!

(Forgot to save the end of match image gg)

Match 4



Role: ADC
Champion: Lucian
Win/Lose Lane?: Won Lane in CS, Three Bot Turrets, 6/3/2 End In Lane with Thresh Vs Kog'maw Annie

Problems: N/A

Good Things: In lobby Thresh called support right after I called ADC and he said he's been playing a ton of thresh so I figured that I'd ban out Leona to set up an annie support on the enemy team for an easier lane if we get catches on her. And of course, we literally just shat on their souls. There was no mercy. We outplayed them so hard and the only times we ever died were to their 3/4 man bot ganks where we still came out even 2 for 2. It was a silly match.

Match 5


Role: ADC
Champion: Lucian
Win/Lose Lane?: Won Lane in CS, Two Bot Turrets, 4/1/1 End In Lane with Thresh Vs Jinx Annie

Problems: Their Jinx was horrible, but our Yasuo was worse, he went 0/10/10 vs Jinx's 0/6/10, Regardless though I was glad that he played it all the way through and not just abandoning us. It was bad though because we had no magic damage on top of having no real mid laner leaving us 4v5, on top of this they had a fed Vi and a fed Nasus so it was over for us unfortunately. Gragas did good in lane and that was all he needed to be fine and their whole team just overswept us rip.

Good Things: Rekt Annie and Jinx in lane. I don't really feel like we could have won the game regardless with our Yasuo. He wasn't very good with the champ and it was a bit sad. He was one of those players I'll remember for their determination and will to keep playing. No worries my friend, as poorly as you played, you really did make my day trying. A rare instance of a good player :)

Match 6



Role: ADC
Champion: Draven
Win/Lose Lane?: Lost Lane in CS, One Bot Turret, 1/4/2 End In Lane with Thresh Vs Jinx Blitz

Problems: This was a lost from the start in team pick. The olaf pick coupled with my sheer stupidity by just saying YOLO instead of actually going back to my super safe comfort pick of Ezreal who I mained last season. (Them 200 games of experience *eyeroll*) This match was just a mess because we dominated bot until wukong started camping and dear lawd did he camp. It also didn't help that in teamfights EVERYBODY on their team gunned for me. And though our Shen was a beast, he was more concerned with getting kills than peeling for me, so I just got wrecked. The match overall was just poor for me >.<

Good Things: Not really :< , I was really late on my thresh lantern grabs and their blitz was out for blood, I was playing pretty poorly.

Match 7



Role: ADC
Champion: Ezreal
Win/Lose Lane?: Lost Lane in CS, One Bot Turret, 2/1/1 End In Lane with Taric Vs Jinx Thresh

Problems: Everything. Panth started off feeding bot. Elise was just running in and dying, and Renekton lost lane. Taric was an alright laning partner, but we both got baited so hard by our teammates. Terrible game overall.

Good Things: N/A
