Probably should have gone pure tank Udyr. Ganked well in the early game, but also spent too much time trying to set up other ganks, which put me hehind in farm.

In the Mid-Late game my team couldn't seem to manage to go anywhere without getting themselves pick off.

Shyvana manage to clean up a bunch of my laners after they got low taking out their opposite numbers. Right place, right time sort of dynamic.

I think their warding was also better than ours because every time I tried to do Rift Herald or Dragon someone would show up to drop a ward or collapse on us and my laners weren't as responsive around such objectives.

Xayah you guys have to wait for me. Last fight of the game. Full health, ults to dodge some stuff, and then flahshes into three of them trying to pick up a a low health target and dies.

Killed Kog'Maw early, that let Kassadin roam some, which netted us some kills. Late game we couldn't deal with the Kog'maw. He vaporized anyone that was low health as Xayah found out.

Should have bought Adaptive Helm before I completed Randuin's Omen since there was more magic damage flying around than attack damage. My decision on that was clouded by get popped by Jhin relatively early in the game.

We got three infernal drakes and a mountain drake and Baron and still couldn't manage to close this one out.

Whew. I was worried about this one when we had all three outer towers go down before taking down one of theirs and our first came at the cost of one of our inner towers. Fortunately, late game they had no answer for Vayne and Kassadin was causing plenty of havoc as well.

I burned Lux's Flash in Mid. Nasus and I should have killed Garen but I didn't get the fourth stack on him and I should have.

Missed at least one ult, though we still ended up getting that kill as it did steer them in a useful direction.

One of the turning points was IIRC a 4 v 4 in Bot with Kassadin Teleporting in like a wrecking ball. We had to reset after that rather than getting anything else on the map, but it allowed our team to go back with a bunch of gold in our pockets.

Laning phase went well. Everything after that was a fiasco. I think my mistake in this game was trying to support Bot lane. Varus was kind of tilted due to having an Ashe support. That also perhaps should have been my cue to dodge the the game.

Had one definitely stupid play where i went after Warwick not noticing that Vel'Koz had moved to support him. That ended up getting me killed.

It was weird in my Top roamed and my Mid roamed in support of the other lanes, which is why laning phase went so well, and then our coordination fell completely apart after that.

I'm not sure what is up with these games. Zed was useless. Azir roamed wherever he liked and my team was not respecting that and paid for it, despite being pinged that he was on his way.

I managed to kill Kayn on an invade and that was about all I managed to accomplish.

I still hate Azir as a champion. You can't even stand near your turrets to defend them if he is in any way itemized.

And I am not sure what I need to do to pull out a win.

It doesn't really look like you could have done a lot there or in the game before, I don't think every single game can be won.

It may be. I've had some games not be competitive because one of the enemy laners gets fed or flat out counters one of my teams picks and knows how to take advantage of it. Also towers are like paper at the moment so if you slip up once bye bye two towers in a lane. And I think that has set me in a confidence deficit.

Last year, I just picked Hecarim who was definitely overpowered and crushed my promos. But there are also 10 bans now so doing that sort of thing is a little harder. I've been trying to find what I click with and so far nothing has stuck.

I'll get it figured out or seek more detailed help.

Appreciate the drop in MissMaw!

I share my thoughts about 2 things which could maybe be improved imo :

IF lucky during bans, picking champion you know the best and you enjoy the most shall benefits you IF you don't get a counter to face by unluck.
IF lucky your team as a whole shall be decent and good enough allowing you to effectively do things, secure objectives and win the game.

In both cases I see lots of luck / unluck playing a part which are unfortunately true from bronze to master ... don't be too hard on yourself and hopefully things shall goes better within the up and down cycle of luck.

The games do feel highly variable. I'm doing what I know I should be doing in the early game, which is typically three camp clear > scuttle and get vision down and look for ganks and I've been able to have an impact on most games in that way, but it isn't adding up to enough, which is when I tend to start to do ill advised things like taking on their jungler in the river and not noticing that their Mid is MIA.

All I can do is all I can do and sometimes that isn't enough and I need to be okay with that.
