Lost promo's.
Played the last game on another PC, a laptop. And it just doesn't fell right.

Trying to get back into promo's, but it seems the server is trying to die again. Only managed to play 2 games before they disabled ranked.

Update:

After losing promo's I went into a losing streak. Fell back to Bronze II, but got right back into series and won promo's.
Lag kinda blew, causing me to lose 2 games without loss prevented. At 0 LP. Won another, then lost agian.
Raged quite a bit.
Now calmed down.
And this is where I'm at at the moment:








Off those 41 games lost, 3 were with Loss Prevented due to lag. Should be 6 actually. Got one in promo's without and got 2 yesterday. Silly lag.

Time for an update.
Been leveling the smurf, so haven't played ranked in a long while.
Just a game every 2 weeks to prevent dropping due to inactivity.

Old results I haven't posted yet:







The new and improved (ROFL) me:

Just keeping my ranked active so it doesn't decay:











Jinx told me to try out a new build.
While it's strong, I'm not convinced it's stronger than the one I was testing previously.
My initiations felt weak, but sustained dmg was superb.
Gonna try it some more though.

About the game:

Vi wasn't good.
She ganked a lot, but she suffered greatly from my counter jungles.
Caught her mid in a warded bush and gave Lux first blood double kill. I did die, but it was ok.
Did a few ganks bot cause they were losing, we got carried away and Katarina roamed bot for a triple kill.
We were winning but they sneaked a Baron, which cost us an inhib.
Got 4 down after that and pushed their mid inhib, then got one nexus tower, at which point they aced us cause some peeps went for that 5th kill, wasting time, while they should've just focused the tower.
Enemy team wasn't focused, we managed to catch em at a bad time or rather, we were better prepared for the baron bait, so we aced em 3 for 5 and me and Jinx finished the game.

Wits end isn't that good because you don't deal any magic damage, part of the passive goes to waste. You should try items like ghostblade because it offers all you want: armor pen, attack damage, CDR and a great active giving movement speed and attack speed :)

It has some synergy with Feral Flare and Sunfire Cape.
Its sustained dmg is nice.
Damage against monsters is just insane. I was running Hybrid pen marks this game and the added magic damage against monsters was just all kinds of wrong.

I'll try Youmuu's Ghostblade soon though, always felt lacking against armor, even with Xin's passive. And now that I've finally started using item actives consistently (now that took me very long to learn) I'll see what other options I have, like Ghostblade.

I do miss Spellblade though. Jumping in, dunking the squishy, instantly removing +500 hp.
It's fun when they panic and start to run, it's usually a free kill. :D

Didn't screenshot the loss before this one.
Was in a terrible mood.
All 3 lanes losing, despite me wasting time ganking the lanes.
And ofc they blamed the jungler.


This game was different:







Gave FB to Volibear.
He threw me into his tower while I had me W on. lol
I then outfarmed him, all the while his jungler was camping top.
I counted 8 ganks within the first 15 mins.
This didn't include the few times the jungler just ran around through the tribush, trying to catch me from behind after his initial failure.
He killed me 3 times in lane, then he started to roam, since I was already even with him in farm, it allowed me to get a lead.
Jax got a penta. Which broke their spirits.
While his presence was non existing up top, he did manage to do a while lot once laning phase stopped.









I miss my Mobo boots.
Being stuck at 400 MS is slow. I prefer 473.
Lack of cohesion in the team almost led to us losing.
A few choice splitpushes, a few lost teamfights and I was starting to scale nicely.
Since they had massive CC and super nice escapes, ganks just didn't work.
Got a nice ace at the end and we just pushed inhib tower, inhib, nexus towers and they started to respawn while we were on their nexus.
I was tanking all the towers. At 30 something stacks it took a few hits before the heal from Feral Flare couldn't heal up the tower damage.
And I still managed to 100%->0% Corki before 3 of them killed me.


When the jungler has most cs in the game.....rofl.



EDIT:





On a roll here. :D

Really need to learn how to play other champs. :D








Yasuo ragequit after Morde killed him a few times.
Jax went roaming by then.
If he hadn't I would've totally lost the lane.
Can't cs for **** with Shyvana.
Had almost empty lane once they figured I wasn't a threat, ended up split pushing and drawing away attention. Only gave up one kill, managed to escape the other times.
One of the crucial enemy pushes was turned from a 1 for 2 close call for them into a 2 for 4 for us cause freefarm Shyvana can block ur escape routes.....muhahahahahaha.

So lets climb some more.
