Sup! I was checking those ranked journey threads and they seemed real fun to me so I decided to make one for myself :P

I was Gold V when S3 came to an end.
I got placed in Gold III after going 7/2 and 1 Loss Prevented in placement matches.
My goal this season 4 is to reach Diamond V.

The reason I am aiming that high is because I've been playing this game since mid-S2. And the thing is that after I was placed bronze in S2, I got really scared of Ranked since then and I rarely ever played it. Like, I have around 3300 normal games, 800 aram games and 300 ranked games since the day I started playing league of legends. This is bad, It was a mistake to not train in ranked, and to compensate, I will play ranked only in season 4, no matter how high I climb or how low I drop.

Champs played so far: (number of games played with it)

Yasuo (7)
Ziggs (2)
Zed (2)
Renekton (1)
Jinx (2)
Caitlyn (1)

I can play solo lanes better than jungle and adc, and I can jungle and adc better than support, but I'm comfortable in all 5 roles. Mechanically I'm quite satisfied with myself, but my decision making is so bad, it's unreal lol

Anyway I will start posting screenshots of the end game stats and stuff with explanations, just like the other journey threads :)



Currently: Gold III 79 LP

Thanks :D

Game 1



Damn those cait mechanics were god tier. If we didn't have the map pressure and objctives, we'd have probably lost that game.

Had the advantage early game, then caught Galio twice in lane. Once we got tower down, I caught Cait once, and from then snowballed thee advantage, until they started picking us off in the jungle after we tilted hard because we didn't know what to do late. Cait got fed, Lux did massive damage, they regained map control but we had a good teamfight in the end and Rene was a beast :)

Galio was the support :)

@Jhoijhoi, although SK Gaming made Galio support look amazing in LCS during their game vs SHC, he still can't outclass the beasts like Thresh, Annie or Leona. During the game I played, he was really strong in the laning phase due to his amazing kit, but in teamfights, he had little to no presence due to our teamcomp.

Game 2



Forgot to take a screenshot :/

Basically, I had trouble in lane since LB got the firstblood on me after the 4th consecutive Elise gank, as I seriously thought she'd give up after the 3rd failed gank and I carelessly used my W to harass, putting my only escape spell on CD (Flash doesn't matter since their flash was up too).

During the 6th Elise gank, I managed to 1v2 and get a kill after I absorbed LB's Q and Elise's Cocoon into spiderling with ult, and semi-snowballed from there.

Garen lost top hard to Shyvana, and although Amumu hasn't been successful in his early ganks, he turned into a killing machine when we started roaming together. We basically snowballed our bot lane and dealt the killing blow through a perfect teamfight to seal the game.

I won +27 LP, and LB was Gold 1, while Elise was Plat V. I guess this explains the inflated mmr gain, but I won't deny the fact that I'm on a win spree greatly buffed my mmr. Oh well, I'm Gold III 52 LP at the moment. I have a whole year for diamond V. I'm pretty confident I can do it.

be reminded, Leona can interrupt Idol of Durand immediately if her Shield of Daybreak is up so that she can be taunted regardless.

Good luck on reaching D5, mastah artist.


As requested to GMD himself.

Yea! Rene's W did the job that game, so we were pretty fortunate in terms of teamcomp :P

And Thanks :D

Game 3



I tilted hard this game.

Started lane pretty well, shoved it in a way that me and Leona get lvl 2 before them and still keep our creep from their tower aggro. Plan went as intented as the second me and Leona got lvl 2, I Zap!'d Sivir and Leona E'd in, we forced both Barrier and Flash and pushed her to recall at lvl 1.

However, Lee Sin was around with red buff, Thresh lantern'd him in, my Flash and Barrier were not enough as we were very far from our tower, and Leona is not a great peeler, add to that the fact that she's not the greatest peeler.

Lee Sin got a double kill, and from there roflstomped every lane, as you can see from his score. I got caught by Thresh hooks, I missed cs, I basically played subpar.

Game 4



The revive/Teleport Galio support with blue trinket and Cloth Armor + 5x pots start who shoves your lane then goes mid before proceeding to afk with his premade Swain, is MVP of the game.

6 of 8 deaths are basically trades for a wave of CS. Had nothing better to do, typical troll game.

Game 5




I was Yasuo vs Warwick top. I played very aggressive since level 1, as Warwick started Doran's Ring for some reason. Warwick's lane was pretty much done when Gragas came to gank at lvl 4 and got a clean double kill with only Ignite used. I dived Warwick the second I hit 6 and snowballed lane from that.

My team did fairly well. Both of my deaths were me going rambo on the enemy team to force plays as for some reason my team played the poke game when we could just dive and kill everyone.

Game 6



I had a good laugh in champ select:

Enemy team 2nd picks Akali and our 3rd pick was like "OH YEAA I CAN PLAY MY MAIN ANNIE! I'm so good with her, I will 10-0 Akali for sure. GG we won."

I wish I could see her face when the enemy team locked Viktor as she went afk after picking Annie, and only noticed in the loading screen. She pretty much begged me for a lane swap saying that Viktor will beat her. I wanted to tease her and stuff but she seemed really concerned, and so I went mid Yasuo vs Viktor while she went top vs Akali. I played pretty safe because Udyr was pretty active from what I've seen, so I abused Viktor's CDs and went aggressive whenever I knew where Udyr was. I roamed when I got lvl 6, got a kill, dragon and bot tower, and as we grouped mid we just took control of the game.


Overall I'm pretty satisfied with my LP Gain/loss. My next win will probably lead me to promos for Gold II. Hoping for the best.
