I am often thinking on how to improve my game, as I am disappointed in my performance so far! I have great games and fail games, I can carry the team one game and not the next. I ended up low in ELO after a run of bad luck combined with bad gameplay from my side, and I was slowly working my way up when I decided to leave ranked be and pound in normals for the purpose of getting better. Now normal draft puts me as 4th or 5th pick every freaking time, so I got fed up with it!

So basically I decided that for me to get back to neutral (1200) I have to play the freaking game, try harder and really think about my performance every game! I know that my IRL situation won't let me play more than a medium of 2-3 games a day, and I want to get from some 9XX (just over 900) to 1200+, so basically raising my ELO by 3 every game.

I will try to make notes after every game, take the screenshots in the style of Wintermond and post here!

I started 3 games yesterday, 2 wins and one loss, pics and notes will come in a separate post!

Ok! First ranked game in a while and inspired by Duffs solo top lee guide (which I have not runes for at the moment) so I actually got lee and solo top even though I was like 4th pick.
From moment 1 I dominated Mordekaiser in lane, but since I went the cowards way with heal/flash instead of ignite I missed out on like 3 early kills. I went 2/0/1 at 10 minutes against him and he had 0/2/0 in the same time (my assist was from ganking mid), so even though he had same farm (I left my lane for gank and I am not yet used to his aa-animation) I was still controlling the lane.

We got all 1st turrets and they surrendered since bot was winning and our jungler olaf was dominating the game.

I asked the jungler olaf if he wanted to go on duoing with me so we went 2 more games.

2nd game, Asked for solo top, my buddy wanted olaf jungle again. Captain picked jungle amumu, without communicating. And well since "olaf-guy" didn't want to mid I went mid. Since we had Amumu in jungle I thought I'd take a low mana mid, so I went with Vlad (I knew they had ryze) but this was a big bad decision on my part. I know ryze is strong, but I didn't know that his runic prison has slightly longer range than my q! So I got facerolled in lane, and didn't get back into the game until teamfights. I held up with farm though so I got back and after getting a teamfight win, a dragon and another teamfight win, we got baron and from there just rolled them.

Well on to 3rd game
Really bad communication in champ select, and once again 1st pick take jungler without saying when "olaf-guy" asked for it. Well I end up chosing between ad and support, and since I am the lower pick of the two that end up botlane he got ad and I go support. Janna is op, but can't carry a Cait that takes sivir q to the face and pops her Q on sivir shield... I just can't!
And well mid got overrun, ahri eaten by fizz and solo top Olaf didn't dominate this game, so we were... well, facerolled. *sadface*

Will get unusual support if I go support next time, like Jarvan, and add to the damage in lane, cause then we would have won the lane. It was so close every time.

There will be quite a few games the next few days, since when I get home from work in 13 hrs I have 5 days off!

Oh and starting from tonight 20 pushups, situps and some other exercise for every loss and 10 for every win to clear my head and body!

I expect to be at 1050 before the weekend, and quite a bit stronger xD

That's a great idea! I'll start doing 20 pushups and 30 situps after a loss.
And 10/20 after a win.


Wow. Why didn't I think of that? :D
