Hello, and welcome to my journey. After my placements I was put into Platinum 2, I managed luckily to get to Plat 1 pretty fast, and then after failing my Diamond promotional matches 5 times, secured my much wanted Diamond V after near 60 matches. Currently I'm playing Poppy only, and having a good time trying new variations of builds, testing new strategies, and getting to grips with Poppy Jungle as well as playing support role.

Objective: Diamond 1 / Challenger
Champions: Poppy only
Main: Support / Jungle

[23/01/2014]
Starting Rank: Diamond V 0LP


Game 1:

Tough game, and utlimately, we had to surrender really early. Our jungler lacked presence, and as bot-lane we made a mistake early on which lost us our advantage. Top lane was struggling due to lack of a jungler, and since all lanes were struggling, mid progressively fell behind.


Game 2:

Managed to be facing the jungler and top I had previous game, again, the enemy jungler, lacked any presence and we ended up stomping bot-lane, diving at lvl 3, and then progressively diving with our jungler towards 10minutes. Eventually Lee Sin ragequit after failing to gank bot-lane vs me and tristana, whom, we both were on about 5% hp, but as few people know, I run heal and barrier, and we managed to bait him to dive and give double buff to our adc. Was a easy win.


Game 3:

Managed to match up with EVO Nemesis, someone i've played with 10+ times over past month in soloQ, back on my D1 smurf. Despite not being on my friends-list we shared a weird bond in soloQ, and since we've matched up together, we won bot-lane fairly well. However, towards the centre of the game, around 18-minutes, our team struggled to synergize, and a surrender vote was made at 20minutes. However, we held our game, and caught their jungler off-guard, and after that we ultimately stomped, and our team synergy was back!


Game 4:

After playing with Nemesis, and knowing he was 2-2 in his promotions to Diamond, Nemesis added me to help get him to Diamond, I reluctantly didn't want to, generally because, I have bad-luck in duoQ's. When the champ select came, we were facing such a terror of a team, their CC and damage was insane, and the sustain was hard for us to keep on track. I was going to dodge, but took the risk and played.

Early game, we were winning bot-lane with quite some ease, even vs an Annie and Vayne. Towards the end of laning phase, the enemy managed to secure 2 Drakes, and we got aced. Moral on the team was low, but after a lucky team-fight and some careful positioning, we managed to fight back, and win a crucial teamfight, enabling us to secure a Baron, and 1 tower. Teamfights that proceeded after were a hit and miss, trading 3 for 2, etc.

I rushed Mikaels crucible after sheen, and even though I rarely even get Mikaels, i felt i made the right decision after making a clutch play by fending of Annie, and then saving our Elise from death with the active + heal. Eventually we ended up securing the win, and to my surprise as well - as their team on paper was immensely hard to beat. Nemesis got his diamond as well :)


Ending Rank: Diamond V 73LP

Awesome! Could you screenshot end game stats so we can see your builds and such? Good luck getting to D1 with only Poppy, I imagine it'll be a challenge!

Game 1:





So, first game of the day, was looking forward to trying to get my promos to Diamond 4 as fast as possible, but unfortunately, someone in my team decided to test my emotions by banning Poppy, knowingly I thought about dodging the game because I always dodge if the enemy bans it. However, since this was my own team-mate banning it, and he even stated "i'm not letting you play a useless champ" - I thought, hmm, rather than dodge and let this fool walk all over me...I'll troll him, just like he did to me. So i picked heimer, and quit game instantly. Needless to say we lost... :)






Game 2:





Managed to match up with Happy (challenger player); to no surprise every-lane was winning and we secured as easy win. A much needed win after that free loss before hand.






Game 3:





This game was a messy one, we started off so badly at bot-lane, diving Ezreal at lv 4, and giving him a doublekill = not the best decision i've made. Towards 9minutes, Ezreal was 3/0, and annie was 2/0. We later then got ganked by Mundo tp, and again died. By 11minutes, I was 0/4, and my adc was 0/4...Things were not looking bad, but i felt confident we could win 2v2 trades, aslong as mundo didn't TP. And thats exactly what happened in the next 5minutes. We manged to keep trading 2 for 1, and eventually, we secured a drake and got a little bit of a lead. Top was dominating due to mundo tp-ing bot 3 times, with once time failing his gank and sitting in a bush for 2minutes. (which was warded)... nonetheless, we held our game together and won.






Game 4:





Holy ****, what a game this was...where to begin.

In champion select, we had a duo who claimed to of never lose their lane, reluctantly i wanted poppy support, but since the player who wanted support was above me, i respected the pickorder, and proceeded to go poppy top, despite wanting jungle. At 15minutes in the game, i had around 100CS, and 0/1/0 after a dive by elise and renekton, our bot-lane was 2/14 in combined kills and deaths.. Things were looking great. Because bot-lane was failing so hard, elise deciding to sit top and mid throughout, and renekton having got a bit of a lead, then counter jungling Lee.

26 minutes into the game, a surrender vote was given. We had 2 inhibs down, nearly 3, and the scoreboard was 7-25 to them. I was 1/4/9, botlane were 2/16, syndra 7/7/1, and lee not sure, but even so, the moral was gone, even i voted yes on the surrender...there was no way we could comeback.

However, katarina decided to go derp mode and farm bot, whilst the enemy 4 man'd baron, with renekton going derp build thinking he'd won already, we managed to catch tristana off guard, and proceed to win the teamfight at baron, and the securing it aswell. Drake also spawned, and we grabbed ourself 2 turrets and a drake after baron. Each of us had around 1.5k to spend after the fight. Needless to say, we could actually bring the game back.

Around 35minutes in, renekton had gone the stupidest build, and leblanc, thinking it was free win, grabbed a GA. We proceeded to win more and more teamfights, with myself nearly 2 hitting their carries after getting IE. The game came to a close finish, and we won.

This game just goes to show that
- despite the lead you have, don't go troll derp, aim to win and finish the game
- never give up

Funnily enough, none of us flamed each other, apart from myself stating I wished I went support and lee wishing cancer on twitch... this game made me learn a lot about keeping moral up, and I think now, I won't say yes to a surrender vote ever again.


Current ranking: Diamond V (1/0 in diamond 4 promos)
