Ah - my apologies. Truthfully, I was underperforming the past couple of games, and I thought you really were getting frustrated with me, that's all. Roger and you kept reinforcing that I needed to think about the things I was doing more. I tried, and when I still got flak for trying to save Xin in our Xin/Ali game, I lashed back because I was honestly thinking really ****ing hard about what I was doing, and upon review of the game, it became clear that you and I had two different plans.
I did tell thalia that you were frustrated with me. I also told him that I was frustrated with you because I felt like you weren't listening to me. And lastly, I told him that I was frustrated with my inability to satisfy you with quality play. You and I may have different approaches about fixing problems, but when I can't fix a problem by myself, I talk about them with people that calm me down and listen and that's what I was doing. But unless you call that back-talking, the only people I back-talk are BBG and Joe - this guy in my chemistry class that often forcibly invites himself to some of the things that my friends and I are hosting. I'm sorry that I made it appear that I was talking behind your back.

I also spoke with my duo partner about you. Although even then, I wasn't talking behind your back. The message you took from my linking lolskill was vastly different than what I intended. Frankly, I wouldn't even give a **** if he was the #10 nidalee in the world and you were #1000 or vice versa. You'd still be on that list, and being on that list really validates your knowledge of nidalee - almost moreso than rank does. To put this in perspective, Bive, a challenger tier player, only felt like he had the authority to write a guide on this site once he hit the top 1000 lists with a character.

When I compared your nidalee to my friend's nidalee, I really wanted to highlight the VASTLY differing playstyle that you two have. If you looked at his match history, you two itemize Nidalee totally differently.
He NEVER builds: Rod of Ages, Zhonya's Hourglass
He DOES build: Void Staff, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, Iceborn Gauntlet
You NEVER build: Rylai's Crystal Scepter, and rarely build Iceborn Gauntlet
You DO build: Rod of Ages, Zhonya's Hourglass

Most champions have a well established, well theorized itemization path, and I just find it funny (yes, actually) that two well established Nidalee players can disagree with eachother so vehemently on something simple like itemization.

I'm sorry that things got so ****ed up between us, Brian. They say that time heals most wounds, and I hope that we can resolve this amicably

Game 26


Replay gg link

Thalia and I stomped bot pretty hard. unfortunately, Annie top stomped top even harder. Corki's fed-ness was a nonfactor as annie could just flash tibbers and instakill him without any repercussion, because everyone else on our team lacked damage. I was pretty disappointed in this game.

Game 27


This was a good game. Thalia and I got annoyed about how much time Xin Zhao spent top lane, especially since Master Yi spent a great deal of time camping bot and basically only us. Even so, the only threat on the opponent team was Kassadin which doesn't turn out to be much of a threat if the opponent team doesn't have a lot of shred. I was annoyed with how easily Vayne could burst me down through Unbreakable Will, but i provided enough tankiness so that the rest of my team ( Xin Zhao, Jinx) could really pull through.

Game 28


replay gg link

This was an incredible game to play, and an even better one to watch over. I won bot lane with several good Flash Pulverizes (i'm still not confident enough to do Pulverize Flash), and some more 2 man Headbutt + Pulverizes. Also, my timing on Unbreakable will was on point. In general, you want to keep track of the rate of damage you're taking, and use Unbreakable Will the moment you start taking ~10-20% of your max health per half second. I would often die, but I would zone Corki and Jinx from the fight for so long, and I would make sure that the rest of my team could clean up while i kept the carries busy. the Jarvan IV and the rest of my team had enough tankiness to catch the two carries out, burst them, and take objectives.

Game 29


replay gg link

I played pretty terribly this game. Thankfully my team carried me :)
Elise support is pretty ****ing cheesey. We gave a doublekill to her early, but thankfully, she recalled and bought... Boots of Swiftness????
Jinx bought an early Boots of Speed, making it pretty difficult to land 2x Time Bombs on her, and their lane was well coordinated enough to stop focusing Kog'Maw when he was at 10% hp, waiting until Chronoshift faded off, and then kill him.

Game 30


replay gg link

Corki and I absolutely dominated bot lane. Unfortunately, Kha'Zix had a really good gank right when we were pushed up and got fed. he would literally delete me, jump away, and then pick off the rest of our carries. Nautilus was a really strong pick; He would frequently catch Corki, and burst him down before I could heal Corki more than once. I was surprised at the amount of burst he had, actually.

Game 31


replay gg link

This was an annoying game! I told Master Yi to start red buff vs Evelynn, lest he get cheesed by her while he was at his red buff. Wait 1', and he got cheesed by her at his red buff. I roamed mid and got the kill thankfully, but bot lane had lost so much pressure that we were perpetually set behind for the rest of the lane. Master Yi got really fed, but kept on doing dumb splitpushing things and end up trading a 1-for-1, or just flat out dying.

Game 32


Replay gg link

This should have probably been a dodge. Soraka got first picked away from us, and she really counters low damage teams. Master Yi was icing on the cake.

Game 33

replay gg link[/url]

I see why Nidalee counters Gragas now. I didn't die a whole lot during the early game, but Nidalee could just totally walk all over my jungle. Her deep vision control, made me have a very low impact in a game where I needed to gank my lanes a lot, since both of my solo lanes were getting dumpstered. I should re-review this game and see what I could've done differently, because I felt like I was always arriving to ganks late. This must be what it feels like to be santorin LOL


Game 34


replay gg link

So Nautilus top got dumpstered by Gangplank. I should've seen that coming, since the guy's name was ggangplank lol. I got really fed, along with Ahri, but we were unable to carry from Gangplank's oppressive zone control. Ezreal wasn't even a big factor. the guy just kept on taking kills from Gangplank lol.

Game 35


replay gg link

This game was unwinnable. Caitlyn picked into Soraka, which is known to be a very unfavorable matchup for her. Riven was also fed, and to her merit she played very well, but the fact was that Draven got super fed off Caitlyn, and he would have carried the game even with a lackluster Riven performance. This loss demoted me to d5. GG

Game 36

replay gg link

This was an incredible performance by me. Poppy played out of her mind too. A good trade bot allowed up to burn our opponents summoner spells early on. while it was difficult for us to capitalize on that, it made it so that the level 6 fight that would happen later would go heavily in our favor. Volibear invaded Amumu's jungle on the second clear and a 2-for-1 occurred in favor of our opponent team. Lulu did the diamond 5 thing and died trying to save Amumu. Thankfully, I was able to get a kill on the bot lane using that red buff. I had some really strong peeling and fight resetting with Howling Gale and Monsoon. Definitely a replay to watch.

Game 37

replay gg link

Another really great game. Despite the fact that their team ( LeBlanc, Rumble, Trundle) could all very easily get to me, I positioned pretty well for the most part and was able to heal my team through most of LeBlanc's damage, as well as Caitlyn's sustained DPS.

Game 38

ANOTHER ONE

replay gg link

Aside from one poor Monsoon that I used to try to save Lucian, this game was a strong performance by me. A trade from Kalista and Alistar seemed to be going in their advantage, but thankfully, Lucian was able to get away, and I was able to get so many free autoattacks on Kalista that she had to respect Flash Heal away lest she get bursted by the Lucian.

Some good roams really stifled Orianna's presence on the map by forcing her to burn flash, and it also crippled Zed's map pressure, since I was able to frequently get deep wards in his jungle. Lucian outplayed Kalista a couple times, and then did stupid splitpushing. he finally started listening to us though and the game went in our favor. Alistar set up some good Pulverizes for Yasuo later, but strong resets really pulled the game in our favor. Upon reviewing the analysis, I found that Malphite, despite playing lane like garbage, really set the team up for success by zoning 3 people from a team fight near our wraiths.

Game 39

replay gg link

Despite my ****ty score, I actually really did well this game. I set up some good ganks for Poppy, and really got her ahead. Not much to comment about this game though, especially when Poppy got as fed as she did
