- INTRODUCTION


. Hello everyone, I am the Manager/Owner of the ranked 5v5s team Paradox eSports. I recently founded Paradox eSports on June 19th and we are slowly growing into the team that we want to be everyday. Our true dream is to get to the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS), but as a Bronze IV team it seems unlikely. I will be posting some screenshots of some of our practice games, tournament games, and scrimmage games once Paradox eSports begins playing again which should be this upcoming Friday, June 5th. Also feel free to visit our website! http://www.PaxeS.webs.com/

- FIRST FIVE PLACEMENT GAMES


. Record: 3 - 2
. Result: Bronze IV

. In my opinion despite losing two games in Paradox eSports' first five placement games we still performed very well. We started off strong with three wins and we felt unstoppable until our fourth game when we ran into a team that had a Gold V Karthus who completely outplayed us and carried his team. Then, in our fifth game we had to face a team with a Gold IV Nautilius who performed at a level we weren't capable of playing with. Your first thought may be they are just low Gold players how hard could it be? Well with a team made up of four bronze players and one silver player it is a little tough to keep up with Gold players. All in all despite finishing off with two losses I believe we are headed somewhere and that we are a good team. As of now our next goals are to get to Silver V and place in the Top Four of the MOBAFire Community Cup (July-NA).

- ROSTER


. AD Carry: Tom "NinjaSlack" Rennar (Silver V)
. Jungler: Jeremy "TheDevilzAngel" Bate (Bronze II)
. Mid Laner: Julius "Jules18" Ayala (Bronze III)
. Support: William "Williaf" Ferdinando (Bronze I)
. Top Laner: Xavier "Xmas54" Mas (Bronze I)

. Thank you all for reading this post and I will being showing some match results in the near future!

Yo *** might wanna leave up dat LCS part..
As a matter of fact yo *** is gettin beaten by crews wit 1 gold playa.

+ dat objectizzle "top four up in tha hood cup" also seems highly unlikely since tha top crews is probably plat - diamond as well.

Not here ta bash on you, you might just wanna scout a lil' bit before freestylin that:P


+ Yo *** could add tha main championz of each playa.
Well anyway phat luck wit yo' crew n' have fun

EDIT: btw you might wanna git dat logo of yours vectorized so tha resolution aint gonna matter

Seems like the Wall of Pain stopped the unstoppable force and crushed their dreams to join LCS.

But in all seriousness.
As koskei said, if you guys can't win against a Gold V player it's pretty sure you guys wont' get even top 4 of the cup since most of them consist of Gold - Diamond players.

But I wish you guys best of luck.

Thank you guys for the feedback. And yes I know our dream to make it to the LCS seems ridiculous but, a dream is a dream and eventually if we all work for it we will make it there. As for the cup I didn't even actually think that there would be Platinum and Diamond players! O_o However, you never know we could possibly keep on working and possibly begin making it the Quarterfinals or Semifinals and make it to the Top Four. NOTICE: I do like the criticism and I feel as if it will be motivation to become better players and a better team. If you guys have any tips I would be more than happy to hear them! And koksei... could you help me "vectorize" the logo? I really don't know what you mean by that.

Also, here is a screenshot of our first five matches in our team's Match History. I thought some people would like to see it.

they're probably just players who are starting off from the ground trying to improve? nothing wrong with aiming high, it just drives you to get better

good luck with the team, ignore the kids trying to look cool

. Today on July 6th, Paradox eSports finally got together again for a weekly practice and we managed to go 2-1 this week. We still remain in Bronze IV but, we do have 60 LP at the moment and at our next practice it seems like we will be able to hit Bronze III. Below is a screenshot of what I thought our best game was this practice. I am open to hear any feedback whether it is compliments, complaints, or criticism!

Well my advice is pretty much you considering what it is you need to improve personally as a player and also keeping an eye at what your team's failing/requires. Good luck with future games!

IDK wy you guys are being so mean because tey're aiming high. You think teams should be formed with the mindset of "we are aiming to be last place/bronze"?
