Good laners that go ahead. I made sure we got all the objectives off of that.

Unfortunately Jax did not know how to do the Fiora match-up and he died before I could get up there to influence. And she ain't bad at team fighting when she is that ahead.

There was on spot where backed off to farm and I could have made a difference in a fight that my team took despite the odds not being in our favor, which is why I backed off. So hard to tell sometimes.

Holy moly, I don't often get four honors and a mention of GREAT jg in the after game chat! Big smile for me :D

Crazy freaking invade to start the game. More of our team died than their team. I got one kill. Dr. Mundo got my blue, somehow I decided to path to his Red and got that, then picked up a Hunter's Talisman and just started farming away.

I got our team all but one Dragon. Almost got Rift but I guess we were on or went through a ward and so in wander's Sona to drop a ward down. Like WTF. Anyway it was just me and Veigar against three or four of them. I thought I got Rift with [Smite]] and then ulted out, though in restrospect I probably wouldn't have been able to pick it up under the circumnstances.

Team did as I asked and Bot healing cuts. Thank you! You don't know how often my team refuses to do that.

I'd say Fiora carried the game from Mid vs the Aatrox. She and Veigar switched lanes so Veigar could deal with Vladimir and he did a good job at it, plus helped me out with various things.

I don't know if Shyvana is the answer at the end of the day. But since she can kill dragons pretty early it gives me a mission to focus on and that seems to help. And by that I haven't been able to find much consistency this season so going back to and old staple that seems to work for me when I can find a build that I'm confident in. Going for more splitpush focused build, though I may have to think about Tiamat / Titanic Hydra since I seem to be fighting a lot.

I found it hard to play with this team. The Pantheon seemed to think he was immortal and took a lot of plays that I didn't want to take including him and Pyke trying to 2v1 the Kassadin under his turret and dying to him twice.

But we managed to keep it together well enough to close out the game.

Pretty sure Aatrox was a smurf. He mega stomped Yasuo who was also map awarness challenged so he also fed some kills to the Kindred. Top was doing okay, Nami was a stun magnet. Later Akali decided to join in on a death pact with Yasuo and so they were both feeding kills. At the end of the day we did play it out well enough even though we started killing the Aatrox.

Had one unfortunate fight where I ended up splititng up too much from the team to try to get an angle on Kindred, so I decided to go on the Kai'Sa about the time my stun timed out, which left me in the awkward spot of being in between two late game carriers with no way to mitigate their damage.

And maybe I shouldn't duo. None of my lanes managed to generate much pressure. And my Mid and Top were whiners.

Irelia - Amumu has ganked me 3 times. Shyv 0.

Shyv - oh, the time I came top and blew Darius's Flash and you didn't managed to do anything with it, didn't count?

You realize that you've dodged all those ganks, which means that Amumu isn't doing anything else on the map. I consider that a win.

But if some people aren't hard stomping then they are whining. How about consider that if you announce you are first timing a champion in ranked that your jungler is probably not going to pay a lot of attention to your lane unless you show that it is warranted?

**** like that.

Apparently they actually do play Irelia, they just have a 33% winrate on it.

Well, Kayn managed to pressure our lanes a hell of a lot harder than I pressured theirs.

I'm pretty sure the Karthus was high. But may his clan tag should have given that away. No ward around the 3 minute mark. Dies to Kayn gank. Almost dies to him again when he doesn't respect the fact that Kayn has only moved down to scuttle crab.

My Bot lane was doing all right, but then they coughed up a kill to Kayn despite me A) putting a ward in place to spot him and B) being their for the counter gank. Sivir flubbed her spell shield on the Thresh hook. And either her or Lux died when Kayn came through the wall.

The reason that I think Karthus was high was because at the end of the game he complained about having no tanks. Dude you [family friendly blog] picked Karthus Top.

Did manage a fun play where I got away from the Kayn using a blast cone. He and Thresh attempted to dive me under the Bot turret. Kayn at two turret shots and died to me and Thresh got executed since I didn't managed to get any damage down on him.

Blew flashes Top and Mid. Neither of my laners were able to convert even when I repeated ganked Mid. Actually the first time around Qiyana tower dove the Yasuo and died. Kind of the story of the game. All laners just slightly outmatched or in a matchup that wasn't favorable (hard to tell which sometimes). Nunu & Willump made more of his ganks work than I did. I sort of picked Maokai to pin down the Yasuo, and that worked pretty well as I caused most of his deaths, but twasn't enough.

Squishy team, with some range, and some immobile champions. Seemed like a good game for Nocturne. Pantheon picked into me, but my ult counteracts his ult similar to the way it counters Shen's ult. Either they can't see to ult or they can't see after they get where they are going.

All lanes played well individually and we coordinated reasonably well together.

I like the new circle effect they gave Nocturne's passive, Umbra Blades. Definitely adds some clarity, assuming that the circle is what it hits.

Mebbee Nocturne is the new OP? Or more likely no one has seen much of him in a bit so they do dumb things like Caitlyn and throw out a line of traps and stand there as 4 of us march toward them. Ult is up? Check. Caitlyn dead? One moment. XD

Really my team played well and I played reasoably well off of them.

Anivia had one brain hiccup where she totally pushed a play that wasn't necessary. Cost us quite a bit of tempo around the map since she and Garen went down. I could have made more out of that play but had already burned my Flash to reposition away from the Ekko who came in fromt he flank.

Zyra had one in Mid that got her killed. But other than that the team did good. Everyone effectively won their lane, leaving me free to be mostly where I needed to be.
