Welp I need to watch more Cowsep to figure out how to deal with Rammus. Wit's End was not sufficient to the task.

Our Lissandra got her feefees in a bind about something and then started running it down Mid at first. Then she started running it down Top lane. So you take your oosing CC mage and then go and split push. That will help win the game. When all you have to do is stand around out carries and Ring of Frost or Frozen Tomb their engage. But nooooo!

I warned the Vayne about an incoming lane gank. Turned out it ended up coming out of the river, but they still had loads of time to react. They wait to long and Vayne hits Heal instead of Flash and dies. She had a number of plays like that. Like I can't even call them Vayne spotting because that is when a Vayne goes in for the hero play only to run right into some CC or something like that and die instantly. These weren't even that.

Game was not close to winnable with Lissandra off on whatever mission it was that she was on. Seems like it had something to do with screwing her team.


Against armor-heavy tanks like Rammus, I would suggest going a high-AD crit build instead. Master Yi's E, Wuju Style, gives him true damage on activation and scales with bonus ad. With that, you probably would have been able to burst through Rammus' armor.

Laners did a mix of dying solo or to ganks and then not respecting the Kayn (Veigar) once he transformed to SA. With no pressure on the map it was hard to decide who to help and apparently I didn't pick the correct spots. I would have helped Veigar, but he was dead a lot.

Reverse of last game. Laners did well. Malphite mauled the Kayle. Fizz had some trouble with Lissandra. I probably spent too much time helping him out for low gain, but he kept at it and eventually started to get the best of her and he made some plays in other lanes. Had one engage that was a little ill advised. Nailed Ashe with my ult under their Mid inner base turret. Malphite didn't react immediately and Sion was off splitpushing so the follow up was a little late and lacking and between that and the tower we lost several members.

And team surrendered a ranked game. Riven didn't play the early game vs the Nasus correctly. (I know this match-up goes in favor of Nasus eventually, but I've seen Rivens murder Nasuses 2 or 3 times before laning phase ends if they know what they are doing, though it is rare at this ELO). She shoved him under turret where he can farm though he'll miss a few until he gets CDR. That left Riven exposed to ganks and put little kill pressure on the Nasus. Malzahar was doing well in Mid, but then switched with the Riven. That actually didn't go all that well as the Nasus was strong enough to push him out of lane. I did help kill him with the Malzahar. We had an opportunity to do drake IF my Bot lane didn't go Top. I didn't notice early enough to call it off and we got collapsed on and I lost the Smite fight in the chaos. One of the cappers was Leona Hextech Flashtraptioning into four of the enemy team without our team all being together. Bye Leona.

I spent too much of the late laning/early midgame running around without a purpose. I should have just farmed since it turned out I wasn't close enough to make a difference.

No one could deal with the Irelia 1v1. All the armor I built did ****. I lasted two to three hits longer than the rest of my team. That actually feels bad. Like why do I bother building armor?

Made a large mistake mistake by going after Elder Dragon after we got Baron for a 2nd time. It was just me and Caitlyn and I couldn't defend her without the rest of my team who were back defending all against waves of super minions. Should have just taken the time to reset and clear waves and then move as a team.

In the end they wombo comboed us and since Caitlyn had no Guardian Angel that was all she wrote.

Maybe should have not built the Abyssal Mask. My thought was to give Teemo and Zoe some extra damage. Maybe could have just done with a Locket of the Iron Solari?

Still I had a lot of armor and Thornmail and it wasn't like they were building crit. To still have that much armor pen be the deciding factor. Again. Why play a tank? And since Irelia built Blade of the Ruined King health wasn't a great option either. I get that Riot doesn't want games to go on forever, but I think at some point in the game as a tank that is building tank items, you should feel tanky.





That is ridiculous.

Yah, ADC. Jungle feels bad to me right now. Maybe it is just me, but I was not able to do much in most of my jungle games so far. While ADC at least from my normal queue games, feels pretty good. That said, I still have to work with a lane partner which is generally ugh. My Brand this game gave up 5 (IIRC) kills in lane. To be fair 2 were on ganks, but I believe we only picked up 1 return kill.

Anyway, I think I may give ADC a try for a bit. Not 100% what my champion pool will be. I will probably do what I like to do which is play several different picks even if it isn't the most effective way to climb.

Probably would have lost this one had Zed not stolen Baron Nashor and picked up a double kill to boot before going down.

I had an extremely dumb death by going back in after I was already out on a fight in the Bot side river. The rest of my team was going to die anyway and with my dash on cool down, I should have just kept going the other way, instead I walked back in and Olaf was able to run me down.

Sion borked our lane by going too ham early. That sort of set the tone for how laning phase went. I think everyone except me was either 1/4 or 1/5 at one point and we kept picking fights or not respecting their catch potential.

Somehow we kept plugging away at it and the Baron steal let us regain some lost momentum. I think if the other team had realized that Sion was off split pushing a couple of times they might have been able to end the game just by grouping and running it down Mid, but maybe when they almost ended the game and lost everyone soured them on the prospect.

I'll take the W.

Honestly part of ADC at the moment is just not dying or at least not dying until you can unload all you cooldowns and as many AAs as you can lay down.

Talon main **** on me and my entire team. Lux I think died before we even hit level 2 so interesting start to the lane. I couldn't carry us out of the hole we were in.

Died a stupid death dropping a ward. What are the odds that Talon is in that bush? 100%.

More stupid because I was level 9 and could have gone back and bought the Farsight Alteration.

Ignore the unfinished The Black Cleaver. Aside from that I had a pretty good game. Leona got me off to a good start as we mauled Brand and denied a couple of waves from Kai'Sa. Our Mid Illaoi was not doing so good, which was problematic since that meant we had a Veigar running around that could one shot just about anyone on our team.

I need to work on being able to use more than one active. Kept using my Quicksilver Sash / Mercurial Scimitar when I intended to use Blade of the Ruined King. The only finger I've managed to train myself to use consistently for that is the one that can hit the 3 key. The 4 key is also not too bad but that is my trinket.

Whew, team had a differnce of opinion on how to play this game. Volibear's idea was to just run into their team no matter what. It worked pretty well for getting picks, but he just wouldn't give up after getting a successful pick. What happened was after the CC wore off his passive would get popped the first time around. So then when he went back in he had nothing left in the tank and they had a Sejuani ult, a Brand ult, an Ezreal ult, and a Darius to then run amok on everyone that was left.

But I'm the idiot.

My Lux fed her *** off in lane. But it was because I wasn't aggressive enough. Yeah can't dive into a Xerath unless his stun is already down, but oh he used it on you killed you and then backed off, so now I am in lane by myself again and oh I have no items because I have to back off the wave when you are dead, but at least I'm smart enough to stay in XP range so I'm not two levels behind them like you.

Anyway, at some point we caught some of them out of position and started making headway in the game.

I mean I give props to the Volibear for getting some work done, but he sure as hell prolonged the game by quite some time by having an all-in all-the-time mindset.

Oh, did not notice or think about a couple of Sejuani ganks. She got Lux early. I walked out of that one. I think she did eventually get me. So need to be more cognizant of jungle ganks, even when I'm occupied with dodging Xerath poke.

I'm a little fuzzy as to why everyone in my games is Bronze when I was guaranteed Silver IV after my first placement match. Maybe it has something to do with switching roles?
