Runes: Hyb Pen, Flat Health, 6 Flat MR + 3 Mana Regen, 3 Arm Quints
Masteries: 0-9-21

Summary:

Our expert on Darius was starting Teleport + Ignite. I encouraged him to get Flash. He didn’t fare well against Lissandra. Guess he should have bought Hexdrinker and Mercury's Treads to start of with. Also dc’ed for a while which didn’t help his prospects.

Warwick really wanted to jungle, so I let him though I was higher in the pick order and called it as preferred position. He did nab an early dragon and did try to gank our lane once, unfortunately it was just before I got my pink ward in place to clear tri-bush. He was spotted and Draven and Morgana backed off. He came back after I cleared tri-bush and promptly ate a Morgana stun, thus ending the gank.

With being ahead in mid-lane and top lane they were able to rotate and do 4 and 5 man tower dives so we just had to back off and start giving up turrets.

I believe we were down 1-9 and Darius said he was done with the game and then Warwick chimed in that he was done too so we ended up surrendering.

Things I could have done better:

Minding my position better. Got clipped by a Morgana Q just in front of our tower and that was enough time for Morgana and Draven to combine for a kill on me despite shielding myself.

Definitely a little rusty on Lulu, should have picked Morgana in a blind support pick situation.

Things I did well:

I was able to poke Draven a decent amount by noting where he was going to catch his axes.

Runes: Arm, Health, MR, Arm Quints
Masteries: 0-21-9

Summary:

This one was hard fought all the way through. Their whombo combo of Malphite ult + Wukong ult + Jinx ult + Karthus ult was something else.

Jax was a bit of a loose cannon and though he got some picks he also got killed at inopportune times, making it harder for the rest of us.

In team fights, Malaphite kept getting into our back line despite my best efforts. I would have to shield Lucian, ult the rest of their team and Exhaust Wukong, then turn around and peel Malphite off of Lucian.

We somehow kept pace with them in kills in the laning phase despite Karthus and slugged it out, coming out on top or even in most team fights. They helped us out by giving us a number of picks mid game.

Things I could have done better:

Hit my Qs. I was just a touch off a lot of the game.

Things I did well:

I earned my keep in peel and warding this game. I kept up a solid ward line throughout the game, which helped us keep track of the enemy team and prevented some ganks from coming off once I decided that for Malph jungle the ward needed to be at dragon as opposed to the river bush near lane.

I used all my active items in the last team fight and we came out on top and though I died, our surviving members were healthy enough to take the enemy Nexus.

Runes: Hyb Pen, Arm, sMR, 2MS + 1 Hyb Quint
Masteries: 21-0-9

Summary:

Back in Silver. Finally. Sweet! :-)

Top lane Riven which is a decent matchup for Sion at least at my ELO. I poked her out of lane twice with a little help from Tryndamere and killed her once also with the help of Tryn. Did get over blood lusted with her on low health when she went to take out my pink river ward, which gave her a kill. She did do some split pushing that caused us some pressure, but overall I kept her from being much of an issue in the game.

Things I did well:

Had a good Teleport gank to bot lane that netted us the bot lane turret and a couple of kills.

Things I could do better:

Watch the bloodlust, especially against champs with stuns and executes.

Runes: Atk Spd, Arm, CDR, 2MS + 1 Atk Spd Quints
Masteries: 6-21-3

Summary:

Ugh. This was a very winnable game. However we had three problems crop up:
  • Thresh could not land a hook unless it was point blank range
  • We could not be bothered to group up to take objectives and rarely managed anything resembling cohesion when we did group up to fight
  • Lulu, who was top, got miffed about Lucian taking a blue after I gave her one when she happened to be nearby and DCed for a while

Things I did well:

Had some good early ganks that netted us some kills.

Things I could do better:

Farmed more. They focused a lot of attention on bot lane, which worked out pretty well for Lucian, but cost me a lot of time in trying to provide counter pressure and some of that time was definitely wasted.

Runes: Hyb Pen, Health, MR, Arm Quints
Masteries: 0-9-21

Summary:

This game was cluster from champion select on. Renekton and Kassadin were touched. Xin Zhao also or he was just feeling a lot of pressure to make plays. Given that not more than 3 of us were alive at any one point in the game, it was really hard to push or contest any objectives.

I picked Nami after looking at their team comp. I knew we need some disengage if we ever got to team fighting. I also knew we needed to win early game and that didn’t happen.

Things I did well:

I kept Jinx alive for the majority of laning phase and they said they were not an ADC main, while staying alive myself.

I also did a good job waiting for Sivir to burn Spell Shield before using any abilities on her.

Things I could do better:

Should have got a ward out in river earlier, but it was hard to get near it to do so. We got away from Rammus and Co. but it was costly in terms of summoners and Jinx’s health bar. Also it took a bit to calibrate my aim with Aqua Prison to deal with Jarvan IV’s flag and drags onto Jinx.

Looks like you also fell victim to someone trying to be a hipster and picking Kassadin mid even though it's the most useless **** champion in the game right now

Yeah, Kassadin is or was good against Lissandra so I was wondering what the blank was going on, but after I watched the peep play a bit it was evident that positioning and prudence were not strong in that one. They died a lot in lane and then in solo chases.

Then there was the Sejuani game I haven't posted yet, where we had a lovely comeback with coordinated teamwork and then our Riven dashed right into the middle of a 5 on 3 and I foolishly tried to create enough interference to get her out.

Me "Why did you go in on that?"
Riven "Oh, my god. I am so sorry. I think I just lost us the game."
Me "That seems likely."
30s pause for them to crush our base.
Me "Yep".

I'm extremely pissed right now, I got matched with the same guy twice in a row and he pretty much ruined both games. I hate soloq.
