Singed pushes vs Jax. True
Galio pushes vs Annie. True
Xayah + Morgana pushes vs Tristana + Blitzcrank. True

I can win the 1v1 vs Vi if I dodge her Q and kite her out.

Me: tBlue > Krugs > Red > Raptors > oBlue > Scuttle > ?
Vi: Red > Raptors > Wolves > No Blue > Gromp > Top scuttle > look to gank Mid

What actually happened?

Started tBlue since they weren't watching it.

tBlue > oRed > oBlue > Gromp > Scuttle

We knew Vi was Top side from a ward I had place and knew she moved into the river to go for Top scuttle due to a ward that Galio placed. After Scuttle Vi attempted to gank Galio who simply walked her toward me and we killed her. I helped Galio shove the wave into turret.

Checked Vi's raptors. I should have backed at that point and cleared my Top side instead of going for Wolves, I think.

Krugs > Raptors > Gailo pinged to engage on Annie, but Vi showed up and I didn't respect the damage they could dish out, so I ended up dying. Galio killed Annie.

Dodged because my Mid picked Vel'Koz into Zed and our Top laner picked Nasus into Garen, both of which are **** match-ups for those champions.

Sometimes Dr. Mundo oddly feels ridiculously fragile. Like surely I can beat a Zac in a 1v1 at approximately the same health? And no. And at other times I survive **** that I'm like how did I get out of that? So weird.

This game was chaotic. We go from easily winning laning phase to struggling due to their engage once Malphite got his ultimate and started comboing it with Zac. Then my team got some defensive items to shrug off their damage and we were fine again.

Oh at one point I had 71 to 56 farm vs the Zac and he had a level on me. Like WTF Rito!!!

Disappointing given that I started out with a rinse & repeat gank on Yorick and I snagged us two infernal drakes.

As with last game, by Bot lane got mega **** on. Fizz got dunked on by Lucian. I suggested that he buy Seeker's Armguard and as you can see from his build he chose not to and continued to get **** on whichever lane he went to (he traded with Irelia) at a couple of points during the game.

We have a 6-0 irelia, just don't F it....nevermind is about how that game felt.

Have I mentioned how much I hate playing against Vladimir. My gawd that champion is annoying.

This game was a bloodbath.

We basically won because they were split with only two of them at the 2nd Elder Drake giving us position on it once they had collected themselves. They decided to engage and I sat on Miss Fortune and pummeled everything that came near her. It had reached the point in the game where either team could delete the other team and we managed to get the damage and CC on the right targets.

Heimerdinger pushes vs Nasus. True
Malzahar pushes vs Vladimir. True
Miss Fortune + Thresh pushes vs Lucian + Nami. True

I don't win a straight up 1v1 vs Shyvana, but if I can kite here around with cleavers I beat her.

Me: Red> Krugs > Raptors > Blue > Scuttle > Countergank Top or Mid
Shyvana: Red > Krugs > Raptors > Wolves > Blue > Bot Scuttle > Best bang for her buck is a Bot gank.

What actually happened?

I knew she was starting on their Blue because Heimerdinger stole her Red buff.

So continued with my plan of heading toward Top lane for the countergank.

I found her at really low health at her Raptors so I took those from her. I pinged out that she was probably going to Krugs if she didn't back. She did her Krugs (and accidenatlly Flashed in place) and then backed. Thinking maybe I should gone to steal those from her too given how low she was relative to my health after taking scuttle.

Miss Fortune got bubbled and died. I took Gromp and then I almost died to my Wolves so I backed leaving them up.

I should have backed. Gone straight to Bot scuttle and secured that becasue it lead to them getting an Infernal Drake.
Shy went straight to the scuttle. Then ganked Mid. Malzahar got out of that. She went to her Wolves. Then did her Gromp.

I went to Raptors. Warded her Blue and put a Control Ward in the Bot side pixed bush.

Since they had the scuttle and their Bot lane had the push on our lane due to Miss Fortune having to back they were able to get the Infernal Drake.

So that is a leak in my game that I should look to plug.

Gargoyle Stoneplate turned out to be essential for keeping me up and running in the late game team fights, so happy I chose to go with it rather than Zz'Rot Portal, which I tend to like for the extra movement speed as much as the active. I opted for Stoneplate because it is cheaper, I didn't think I would get a lot of value out of the Zz'Rot portal active, and I needed something to be an even bigger damage sponge.

Out Bot lane got smote. Ashe continued to cough up needless deaths on rinse and repeat. Hecarim took that as a point of weakness and attacked it. Illaoi did great up until she wouldn't switch lanes and go take the turrets in Bot lane. She just keep walking further and further up their Top side without good ward coverage, so our one point of strength started coughing up kills.

Have I mentioned I hate playing vs Vladimir? I ganked him. We blew his Flash, Leona ganked him and they still couldn't kill him.

Spent a lot of time in Bot lane. Had to keep Zac off their behinds and help enable Draven. Pretty much the win condition because if they ever got going, Ori ball on Garen or Zac and Vayne behind them to dish out damage would have been disgusting.

Left Maokai mostly on an island and he wasn't having that great of a time, but did get up their once to help him kill Garen.

Took a 1v1 with Zac that I shouldn't have because Maokai didn't have prio and didn't have much health or mana even if he was in a slightly better spot.

Holy ****, my Bot lane. Xayah coughed up a couple of kills. Xerath spent the rest of the game pinging her and asking her how she had manage die again. Well, maybe it is because they have a Yuumi on a Tristana and so Xayah can't walk within 20 Teemo's of a wave without getting jumped on?

I mean I think he did the right thing with roaming, but leave well enough alone.

Anwyay, Syndra, I, and Nasus made up the difference and Xayah was actually useful once she was able to group.

My one death I managed to kill Tristana and my team was able to kill three more of them and get their Mid outer tower and their Top Inner turret and set up for Rift Herald after I respawned. So worth despite giving over a shut down.

Going to leave it for there tonight.

Right now, I'm trying to predict where I need to gank and figuring out how to get there on time. After that I try to track the enemy jungler as best I can and get the Rift Herald. I don't often get it before 14 minutes, but breaking a tower is big for opening up the map, so I'll happily take that even if it isn't maximizing the possible gold.

Dr. Mundo is working for me pretty well, especially if they are AP heavy and they have no Master Yi or Vayne. So I'm banning yi and asking for Vayne to be banned. Dr. Mundo's biggest flaw is that he isn't really engage unless you are far enough ahead that you can simply run over the enemy team, so I'll lean toward Hecarim if my team needs a way into a fight.

For Hecarim I find that I usually do better when I run Ignite. His main flaws seem to be that he is actually rather squishy if you go Enchantment: Warrior + Trinity Force and some games you just don't get the gold income for that quickly enough and he feels pretty bad with lesser items. Enchantment: Cinderhulk can be useful if you need to hold up damage a little better such as verses a Cho'Gath that simply chunks you when you dive into a fight.

If I need to go primo early game focused such as to shut down someone like Evelynn I'll probably go Xin Zhao. There are a few better duelists, but not that many, and not what I would pick Xin for. Jax is my main ban when I play Xin, as Jax just flat outscales you especially with Spear of Shojin.
