OK latest update for you all

I managed to finish the 10 promo ranked matches and despite my best efforts I went down with a record of 2 wins 8 losses, Now I can beat myself up for not being as good as other players or I can moan that certain summoners on my team were playing poorly, AFK etc but I will not do that because what is done is done and all I can do now is working on getting promoted from Bronze to Silver where I had set my goal.

Now right now my goal seems simple (but probably isn't) and that is to score 100 league points then win 2 out of 3 promotion matches and then repeat :/

Anyways the big news is I have once again edited by champion roster so here it is

Top Lane remains Riven and Irelia
Mid Lane is now Ziggs and AP Teemo
ADC is now just Caitlyn and Miss Fortune
Support is now just Leona, Sona and Nami
Jungle is now just Vi and Amumu

Now the reason behind all the changes are simple
The addition of Teemo comes from the fact in my Ranked game I took a gamble and played Teemo in the mid, now I hadn't played Teemo really before but I managed a reasonable score 8-13-9 (yes we lost) and I really enjoyed playing with him so I have decided to use him as my secondary Mid Laner.

I took Jinx out of ADC because I felt that despite being alot of fun, I just couldn't produce a successful play with her in a game...I do love playing as her but in ranked I can't play with someone who I can't win with despite my best efforts.

I also took Soraka out for similar reasons, I love her to bits as a champion however in ranked I feel she will never be good enough in those type of matches.

I have to apologize to Soraka, I was wrong...
OH so very, very wrong indeed :(
Soraka is now back on my main list because of this

Hello everyone, its me again

Sorry that this thread has been quiet I have had alot of things going on in my life and playing Ranked just wasn't in my agenda really.

Anyway to keep you up to date - I have dropped a Rank from Bronze III to Bronze IV

But in the time I have been away I have been practicing as a Leona Support, trying my best to learn how and when to go in for attacks and most importantly...Trying not to Kill Steal so much XD

Well I decided last night that I would return to playing ranked a bit more and well...
I actually won a match again ^^ Practice makes perfect as they say

If you want to play support there's something you need to learn; kill steals are ALWAYS kill secures or accidents; whoopsies I didn't think you'd flash for it! :3

A lot of people who play Leona make the mistake of like... having the mentality where they're like "well I'm the tank and the initiator so it's all right to die a lot" and this is, in my opinion, totally wrong. You're tanky and you need to get into some risky situations to hit your Qs and do other cool stuff but this by no means -means- that it's ok to play extremely casually with no regards to your own safety. Play smart even when you're playing a dumb champion.

Well I haven't spoken in a while but here is a update on this blog of mine
First of all I have secured a few good wins in Ranked since the last time I was here including a nice 0/6/12 with Lulu and a much better 2/3/17 performance with Leona.


Sadly the elo hell has consumed me and I have fallen all the way down to Bronze V despite my efforts and thus once again have had to re-evaluate my plans as I try to figure out the best way to get out to this rutt I have found myself.

Firstly I have started to retrain myself and listening to some friends I have shortened my main roster picks to 10 (2 per roll) and using the remaining pages to have standard builds for when I need to play anyone else or just for ARAM.

I decided on the following

Top Lane is Jax and Fiora
Mid Lane is Ziggs and Kayle
Jungle is Vi and Amumu (Probably the only part that hasn't changed really)
ADCs are Jinx and Miss Fortune
Support is Leona and Braum

Hopefully focusing on just a few will help me to get some much needed (and if honest much deserved) wins in ranked ^^

6/24 is a record i didnt think id ever see

not to sound mean but "elo hell" didnt consume you if you manage to have 4 times the losses than wins

your champion choices are ok (except fiora) and most of those champions are actually some pretty popular picks which is a good and bad thing because you might get banned out of using kayle, jax, braum, leona, and possibly amumu in low elos still but if you manage to get them and use them decently you should hopefully rise

btw you get a lot more help from people if you post screenshots of losses rather than just wins

I know however I feel that if I post the losses that they will not be true reflections on how I have been doing.
I am not going to say I am anywhere close to being faultless because I know my own mistakes during the games however as I have mentioned before I seem to fall victim to alot of AFKs, Troll pickers and those who just not prepared to play in ranked.
but if it helps I will post some of my defeats as well.

no one is going to give you points and tips on how to be better at the game if you only post pictures of your wins and blame your losses on "people just rage and afk blah blah id win all 24 of those games if they didnt"

also good choice picking irelia instead of fiora shes a much better pick
