Using Q will still delay how fast you die though (because it takes longer for the raptors to attack again after being knocked up). The turret shot option also sounds very risky, might lead to one of the enemies following you into your jungle and ruining the strategy. It's probably best to use auto attacks only, I haven't tested how fast that is.


Yah, I've learned to either time Soul Furnace or watch the counter and pop it before the shield goes down. Watching the counter was just darn hard to do against the raptors before 5.5 as they just tore right through it.

In my two efforts at testing tonight, running 21-0-9 and Hyb Pen Marks, 9 Scaling HP Seals, and 1 Hyb Pen Quint I was not able to finish off Blue Buff completely simply by auto attacking it before dying. 1 mini-sentinal was left and I was a sadz level 1 Sion when I respawned.

Retried by popping Soul Furnace once and that worked dandy.

It just seems so dangerous to shoot for one of their buffs in solo queue unless you can get your team to ward their buffs so you have some idea of where the opposing champions. And eventually Sion cheese will come to be expected at higher ranks especially.

I already often have my Top laner ward the buff I am not starting at at 1:45 just to avoid some of the early cheese certain junglers like to pull. Looking at you Lee Sin and Shaco!

Game 67



Haven't played much ranked recently since I've been focusing on improving my Rumble and possibly learning Annie top, but went for a quick game this morning.

There's not much to talk about here (all lanes were winning and the game started snowballing in our favor pretty hard once we grouped and forced objectives), but I just want to mention that it's important to pick something you're comfortable on over trying to counter your opponent. I've already faced a few people who picked something they barely play to try and counter my Irelia pick ( Darius, Olaf, Jax), but it simply doesn't work if you don't know the champion well.

You can thank me for that tip once you reach challenger.

Don't have (all) the screenshots, don't have a goal for that account (beyond performing well on a game to game basis) and I'm not sure how often I'll play on it. So yeah, I'd rather keep it separate. Feel free to create your own ranked thread though :3

I didn't really think anyone would be interested, I didn't make one last year either despite playing the most ranked games of any season then. It'd mostly just be me saying tem suks and nothing else and I don't have a goal anyway.

More like the silvering, placements aren't going great.
