No reliable way to get to the Kog'Maw come late game. Literally too much CC flying at us. Blitzcrank got impatient and kept throwing out hooks willy nilly which ended up getting him caught out repeatedly. Given no good hooks or a dead Blitzcrank we were playing a waiting game against a better scaling comp. The End.

I would dearly have liked a jungler with a gap closer to snowball the early game harder, but they picked Xin and I wanted something decent into him. Probably should have gone Pantheon.

We might have had a chance to win, but I told the team to back and heal up. I don't think it was a mistake, but it was a potential window. I also think I made an error in pinging the 2nd Ocean Drake after we took a tower and inhibitor. I think we should have got Rift Herald instead while it remained up. By the time I had changed my mind, my team was already running to the Drake and Xin end up taking the Rift Herald in the few seconds it was still up.

One of those games were you are winning until you aren't, but we were mostly winning off Blitzcrank hooks so when those stopped hitting we weren't able to create a sufficient advantage to win the game.

Akali stomped her lane and Garen kept Vladimir in check. I laned in the middle of their team, CCd a key target, and got CCd in turn and died for the cause, which turned out to be enough.

Wait... you are at 21LP after a +24 win?

Did you dodge at 0? I didn't know it worked like that

You get -3 LP the first time you dodge! Then -10 and so on, with larger wait penalties as well.

Yes I knew this, but I think you should stay at -3 lp if you dodge... not at 0 with a -3 penalty saved somewhere that just pop in after your victory. Riot has a strange logic

Yeah, I forgot to mention the dodge. In my client it showed me at -3LP after the dodge since I was sitting on 0 LP, lost one game (still 0 LP), dodged a game (-3LP), won a game (+24 LP and -3LP = 21 LP).

Because I was on a fairly lengthy win streak my MMR is Gold IV according to op.gg, so it gave me a bump in LP gains to try and get me out of Gold V quickly.

And I have no idea why they do it that way. Guessing that dodging the first time is simply "hard coded" as -3 LP and it doesn't matter the circumstances. By that logic I suspect you could at least go to -13 LP if you dodged the following game, but that wasn't enough to demote you back a tier or division.

Our Twisted Fate was pretty good. Bot lane made their own lead. Riven was kind of surfering vs Tahm Kench on top of a Graves camp. I tried to give her some space early, but Graves showed up, so we coudn't quite finish Tahm off despite her immediately Teleporting back to lane after dying.

Riven actually picked up a pentakill at a drake fight.

The double health bar on Tahm is ******ed. I took like three or four of us to kill him. If they had been ahead as a team we probably would not have been able to deal with him.

I tried a little change up on my build path this game based on what WillieP said about the Graves jungle match-up as Udyr which is by Ninja Tabi then compelte the first chunk of your an armor item before building any more damage and you can weather Graves. So I went Tiamat + Skirmisher's Sabre + Ninja Tabi + Chain Vest + Enchantment: Cinderhulk.

One thing I do need to think ahead on is item slots and what I want to buy next. There team does do some magic damage (Tahm being the main culprit), so I figured I would sit on a Spectre's Cowl, but that left me without items slots as I was building into my Thornmail.

I also pathed in a way to avoid Graves since I am pretty darn sure his level 2 all-in is better than Warwick's. Though I may be wrong about that.

Pretty sure I was playing with some smurfs in this one.

Need to remember to wait and ult after Camille ults. That almost got me killed twice as I did it right under their tower leaving me close to behind their tower and having to slug/run my way out of there.
