When you 1st pick a champion, get carried and still enjoyed that champ xD

I picked Aatrox cause #yolo and Darius got banned (what a suprise ay xD)
I'm lucky that rest of my team got fed and played well cause otherwise this would be fun ride :)
I did good job of dragging attention top lane (that's why so many deaths) cause that resolted 3 mans non stop ( Nasus had amazing time xD)
I will play Aatrox in normals since i like how he plays the lane and mby will add him into the pool (already not sticking into my champ pool)
Overall thank you team for carrying my a** and prevent me from demoting xD

That's it for day 1 of my ranked march.

I really need to solidify my champion pool (will update on that) and stop #yolo with champion picks (got lucky with Aatrox one XD)
#FlameWars cost me some games and looking back i should play more smartly so i can minimize deaths and throws.
Thanks to everyone who visited my journey today, see ya tommorow and if you have any tips/questions etc. that would me a lot to me :)

Or dodge. I've totally gotten caught up in the "well this champion counters this champion so I will pick them." And yeah, if you don't know why Kled has a 53% winrate vs Darius. Do not think that you will be one of the talented 53%.

If they ban one of my Top laners and my back-up Top laner is ***** in the match-up, I've started to learn to dodge.

Your team-comp looks garbo...dodge

Top and Mid have a 33% winrate on their respective champions....dodge.

It sucks to have to wait the ?6? minutes for the first dodge and and take the -3LP hit, but it is better than a -20LP hit.

>#FlameWars cost me some games

Be liberal with the mute button. As soon as someone goes negative in chat or starts pinging me incesstantly in stupid situations (pinging for my help when I'm obviously on the opposite side of the map doing something like taking dragon) they get muted.

>i should play more smartly so i can minimize deaths and throws

minimizing deaths was the key for me for getting out of Silver for the first time and of course the fewer the better as I try to climb further. I find mine come in a number of varieties (in no particular order):

1) Miss something on the mini-map
2) Not respecting how quickly some champions can move to a fight
3) Overextending in enemy territory without enough knowledge (sometimes I am taking what I know is a chance).
4) Not respecting level or item spikes (trying to gank a lone squishy Varus that has just gotten his Guinsoo's Rageblade and has it fully stacked).
5) Mechanical misplay

Just a note for what concerns dodges: you not only avoid a potential 20-25 lp lose, but what is really important is that you don't lower your MMR. So your next game you can gain more / lose less lp. I think dodging is one of the greatest skill if you want to climb

You have an (almost) free dodge a day, but I believe that even the other dodges, that cost you more in lp and time, are still worth because of your MMR.

I'm totally aware of dodging and i'm implementing when peole play troll ****, sub 50% champs banned or #flamewars in the champ select, but sometimes i don't check or forgot to do it (or do it too late). I need to update my blitz tho.
I will put those bullet points about minimizing my deaths to my notepad so i can look at them when i'm playing my warmups.

Thanks to both of you for tips tho. Appreciate it (post soon) :)

EDIT: Yeah MMR > LP, totally agree with that (just noticed the mmr part)

This game is just unlucky slaughter fest that what could go wrong just went wrong. Coudnt dodge ( already dodged 2)

Wrong runes... Check
#FlameWars... Check
Feeding lanes... 2/3 lanes (bot didnt feed until they got doved)
Miss Fortune ulting when Yasuo haves his Wind Wall up... Check
"Wukong reported" ... check

Unlucky game, all that i could say. Will switch to Top for next game
PS. I was alot tankier then i thought.. Enchantment: Warrior and Electrocute would be better instead of well.... Enchantment: Cinderhulk and Aftershock

Terrify is so funny and OP at the same time xD
Lane was rocky to say the least since if i didn't Terrify Nautilus Ezreal is 100% dead.
Ahri was destroying Lux and as for Kayn... actually he hold ground VS our Pantheon.
And Master Yi just flat out tried to fight a Rammus xD
But i had two goals:
1) Land good ults
2) Terrify either Rammus in his Powerball or Nautilus when he hooks.
Did both job right and managed to win 2 teamfights alone.
Good game. Didn't got demoted. xD

And day 2 has come to a close.

Slow day since i dodged 2 games, got robbed for 1 win (i still have headaches, didn't post it cause leaver status) and found out that jungle doesn't work for me (when i'm solo that is)
NOTE: I play alot of jungle in 5v5s/Team environment so mby that's why.
Will update on my champion pool to reflect on this decision,
Piece out, will prob post more tomorrow (want to keep this daily)

OK today is the promised update thread (games will come as soon as i am able to play) so let's adress those points, shall we?
Moving away from jungle (in terms of soloq)
For me this is the elephant in the room. I decided that, after almost 5yrs of playing jungle on and off, i will look to transition to my secondary role, top lane (and adding mid lane as my new secondary).
Meta shifts + #FlameWars + Nostalgia for season 5 + Champs that i enjoy playing are falling off due to the say'd meta changes = Lost in interest with the role.
I simply can't deal with jungle changes anymore and my mental is getting weaker the more i play the role. That's all
I decided on Top lane since that's the lane i'm always going secondary since i can flex most of the jungle picks into the top lane and as for mid... well bot lane isn't my cup of tea (also the fact i can roam gets the similar feel when i gank as a jungler, good enough for me).
Champion pool post changes

I'm going to shift my focus from 5 to 2 roles. Buff the number of champions into my primary and secondary (3 => 4 for top and 2 => 3 in the mid) while removing the rest of the roles out of calculations. (sounds like patch notes :D)
So for top lane i present to you, DRUM ROLL PLEASE.......
Darius , Aatrox, Dr. Mundo and Graves
Darius - My boy will always get on this list no matter how bad he gets. The damage, tankyness and salt he brings its just too good to pass on :)
Aatrox - The one everyone hates post rework, Aatrox will serve me as alt to Darius. That's it.
Dr. Mundo - The tank of the group, will be picked in games where i need tank.
Graves - This champion is the one i have best memories with and i simply can't go w/o him anymore, but since i don't jungle anymore, let's bring him top :) (If we need AD ranged and awesome vs melees).
AND AS FOR MID LANE..... DRUM ROLE PLEASE!!!!....
Twisted Fate, Talon, Galio
All 3 of these bad boys offers roaming potential and can carry games (i refer to AP Galio).
Overall balanced picks.
And that's all for champion pool. Now to the final point.
Format of posts

Ok the format is as follows:
Picture
Why i choose the champ?, Laning phases of each roll, Teamfights (if there are), What i did good What i did wrong , Opinion of the game, Questions (if i have to ask any)
Phew sorry for this wall of text but i wanted to do this. Thanks for reading AND almost 300 (haven't checked as of writing this wall of text) views. Never thought i would gain any steam at all tbh xD.
Thank you soo much and as always GO BEYOND ! (New catch phrase xD)
