Good team that got a lead and kept it. Solo killed Kayn the 2nd time I ran into him. I thought he couldn't go into walls if you damaged him first, but I guess damaging him only puts him combat which lowers the duration of Shadow Step.

Not a lot to say here since my team won the game by the numbers.

I may need to start banning Akali so my own team doesn't pick it.

Failed at respecting lane priority again. Though the main cause of that death was blowing my Flash trying to kill Kha'Zix at his Gromp. I didn't get him and it got me killed when I invaded Kha'zix at his Red. Even if I can kill him at levels 1-3, it doesn't matter if I can't get out. Just killing him is not enough to set him behind in a significant way unless I can stay alive and get other things.

Got a gank off in Bot lane once my Bot lane hit level 6. A lane gank with a Braum ult was the only way I could get into the lane with Kha'zix and LeBlanc controlling the Bot side river.

Akali wasn't doing horrible in the early game, but she decided to take a bunch of roams into the enemy jungle and kept get herself killed.

Braum kept trying to surrender. Super irritating. Yes, we are down some kills. But Anivia got Mid turret first since Leblanc was roaming, so there were some positives. I found it fairly irritaing.

I need to figure out how to work the early game better, some way to eak out a lead without putting myself at too much risk. Old path, Red > Blue > Scuttle > Enemy Krugs? when I know my laners won't have priority?

Our early game was ****. Everyone died a bunch of times. Stablized the Mid game a little bit. Got a pick to contest a Mountain Drake and my team runs away despite Jhin just saying in chat that he as really strong. I end up dying about the time I notice my time running away. Okay....

Never managed to coordinate to do anything besides a little bit of turret defense.

Not feeling as confident as I would like so doing some games on my alt account. Blitzcrank was a bit danger prone this game in that I ended up dead following up some of his plays this game and he ended up dead following up after me a couple of times.

I am going to be sad if the nerfs to Trundle on the PBE go through. Maybe it is because his kit is simple or that he is more of disruptor/team enabler (at least with he Zeke's Convergence build), but I feel fairly consistent on him. Though you have to ignore the early season losses I had on him before the meta suited him and before coming to a better understanding of the Rift Scuttler changes.

Jax held out well in Top lane. It was a party in Bot lane. Janna had one of those weird Janna games where the Janna dies a bunch. I guess the Alistar engage + the Miss Fortune poke was a bit much.

Akali performed reasonably well vs Talon to the point that Talon did not get Bot a lot, though when he did it was to bad effect for us.

It roughly felt like we out scaled them and or just performed better in team fights or a bit of both.

Started the game 3-0. Somehow Master Yi with no gap closer managed to pick-up a kill in all three lanes, buys an Enchantment: Bloodrazor and then ***** on everyone. I couldn't even countergank vs him. I would stun him and get my burst off and he would still mow through me and they had just enough CC to lock everyone up for him long enough to gets his Qs off to dodge most of the incoming CC.

No one else on my team stepped up and picked up the slack.

Had the most success ganking Mid lane. Either I or Veigar could get him to blow his Sanguine Pool then we would lock him up with our other CC.

I should have just played on the opposite side of the map from Master Yi once he was fed.

We would have lost this if Katarina hadn't popped off. She could even delete Urgot in pretty short order since he hadn't gotten to the point of building any magic resistance.

I picked up the first kill on Graves and went back and started with a Long Sword. Katarina did a stupid on got half 80% of her health removed. I helped her push out the wave, she hung around and ate another charm and died. Top died.

I think I felt pressure to make something happen so I overchased on Urgot right into a bush with Graves in it. He ended up picking a double kill though I believe we got Urgot. That seemed to help stabilize Top as Sion killed Urgot a bit after that.

Super messy fight in Bot lane. No one died that I recalled, all of us limping out on very little health.

Graves seemed to make every gank work and was there frequently for counterganks so he got big.

Fortunately Kat. My team still did some dumb things, but since she could erase them three at a time, it was pretty easy to finish out the game.

I sometimes feel like I need some Xin Zhao lessons. I've got a lot of wins on him, but I feel like paper a lot of games even when I build tanky before building much more damage and then when I build damage first because I'm having a romp, I usually end up dying a bunch. Need to find the happy medium.

Had no Mid lane control so lost control over my jungle. Zoe was able to roam a lot more effectively than Syndra so she was able to help snowball the other lanes. And while Illaoi wasn't a complete terror, she did create enough pressure that we had to stay divided up so they were able to take most if not all of the big neutral objectives without us really being able to contest.

Needed a match-up that counter Zoe or I needed to spend more time in that lane, but ******** I hate trying to gank that champion. One bubble and if her jungle is around you just lose the 2 v 2 flat out.

It might also have helped to have a Sona that went a little more utility oriented. There were some fights were something like a Redemption would have been mighty nice to have.

Apparently Teemo takes a **** on Talon. Who knew? :/

Jax became a split push problem late in the game. But I caught him in our jungle late in the game trying to back and stopped his back at the cost of my life and Kai'Sa went in and deleted two of them and finished off their Nexus.

I really should remember when I have a Stopwatch and or remember to position myself to go over a wall when I ult and I don't think I can kill my target.

Still pretty pleased with how I did overall, given that I haven't played Evelynn in some time. I've been playing Taliyah as an AP champion, but I am probably better on Evelynn since I can just stealth around and get some work done assuming I don't get punished too hard in the early game.

Oh, new strategy. As much as I hate Quinn I hate playing vs Zoe more. So I will be banning her for the foreseeable future.

Made some tweaks to my settings.

-Hid summoner names.
-Hid enemy emotes.
-Made chat 0.
-Made the HUD as small as possible.
-Made the mini-map as big as possible with default settings (may try to make it even bigger).
-Trying out Quick + Self Cast on champions with abilities that work on either yourself or other targets.

-Working on not typing anything longer than two letters

One suggestion I got from League of Legends anonymous podcast was that if you can't scream it in someone's face and have it still come out okay then don't type it or say it (if you are on voice coms). Don't type anything about things that happened in the past.

You might be able to say something like "What happened in the last fight so we can adjust our strategy next fight?" But you have to include the second part or it is just going to come of as accusatory.

-Chat size may be a little small at 0 for me for recording things like flash timers. May have to experiment with running in Windowed mode and recording timers in notepad (something I understand that a lot of the pros do).

-Mental: Dissociate myself from the results other that asking myself why that succeeded or why that failed. This is Hard! You want to blame someone when something doesn't go right. But all you can do is keep playing and using the information that you have available. Getting bent out of shape over what you think should have happened just clouds your ability to think clearly.
