I DID IT!! IT WAS WORTH!! SPLOILER: WE REKT…
It’s late but maybe this is the time there are less trolls and more conectration, idk. But no matter what just get it over with, whichever the result you can work on it. And so for the last time Placement Game… Begin!
Ok so Lucian adc with Allistar supp, he actually wanted to shen supp or smth else so when he mantioned he had Allistar I teld him to plzz be him. Turned out to be a good pick, I also voted for the top to be Cho instead of … I don’t remember someone not tanky. I laned well enough I got alot of Q’s onto Caytlin and I froze the lane outside out turret. But Poppy would sit in the bush closest to me and Allistar wouldn’t ward it, so I almost died once, and actually died once, being slammed into the wall and stunned by her. I had already used my trinket both those times and I wasn’t careful enough. I actually think we lost the lane because they destroyed our tower before we did theirs. So I still had good farm and rotated mid when needed and helped get a dragon and such. Allistar went tanky enough for team fights to always go our way, so did Cho. [my two picks :’) ]
This was actually a really intresting game, Anyone reads the TL;DR and just says “you were fkn carried”, but I actually played pretty well. I helped push so other objectives could be done, I got my bot tower when I saw the opportunity and made calls that got followed through and completed. This team was very responsive and since I was behind anyway, prefered to get kills than help me survive which was, I think, appropriate, given that the kills led to objectives.
All-in-all I was very glad I finaly finished the Placement games. BTW I was Placed in Silver V!! I won 4 out of 10 Placements and either Rito has gone very soft and “I don’t deserve this” and other butthurt comments; or other things beside KDA and wins are taken into account.
I’ll do a Summary of the Placement Matches tommorrow (or later today 2:22 a.m. [make a wish!]) and post it so we can see how it all panned out.

2 more games to go. That last one didn’t really disappoint me too much. I performed well and though we ended up losing I at least realized I have better preparation the most these guys I play with. Let’s get this show on the road.
Ok Karma supp, The Bans chat was interesting thses guys maybe able to work together as a team. The adc was saying how he had had a couple of bad adc games and he was “rattled” and so didn’t want to adc again at first. But then he was like “hmmm… nope I shouldn’t let this get to me”. I can relate. I thought this was awesome and it helped me keep my head cool during the game. We were up againt a Vayne and Nami, being Jinx and Karma. I know with Vayne you win the lane by just denying her farm. So i had told Jinx I’d be aggresive but would not actually look for a fight. It went well, I could get my harrass on her, but jinx would push the wave too much and didn’t quite now how to freeze so the game went into mid-game without kills nor deaths… in our lane that is. I started to worry that top was feeding. But we got a kill and kept playing consistently well, we always saw Jarvan trying to gank us and always we were prepared to not die. We managed a kill on Vayne and got the tower quick. We won the lane.
Spoilers: We won the game too.
I’ve found myself to be very chatty in these ranked matches. Everyone know communication and cooperation are key to winning. So konwing what had to be done I didn’t hesitate to chat alot and tell people what to do. I tried to never sound bossy or like a wise-ass, but by proving I could hold my own, people were open to listen and even obey. We could not teamfight very well, they had us beaten at that, but we had a Jinx so I said we should split push, (also had an Udyr jungle). I said “Play this like it’s a Doom Bots game, assume they are OP and don’t fight them, get towers and when we get an inhib we can split push easily”. We managed, it didn’t lay out like a pro team, since I knew top was vulnerable and noone was going I went and since karma is SO slow with towers I never got it but it dd keep the preassure and an ihib was what the managed so it was fine.
I shall play the last game right now, even though it’s 1:00 a.m here and even though tomorrow I start a Web apps dev class. I must see this through now. I’m calling it: WORTH.

I’m gonna wait for a good time of the day, when I’m not occupied and the internet connection is for me only and I feel rested and calm to play these last couple of placement games and break through this stupid invisible wall. link related
Got Graves adc with a Blitzcrank, up against a Lucian and a Thresh. The laning fase was very good. I love how many Thresh hooks I danced around. My Blitz wasn’t bad but when he did get into a fight and die I could at least secure a kill. I got two double kills and I the game was going out way. But then Blitz’s lack of foresight proved too much and we started to die in stupid situations, bad positioning and chasing when the three guys mid had M.I.A.’d I pinged yellow but was still dumb enough to not let him die alone.
Spoiler: The game took a 180° spin and we ended up losing.
Being a frecuent jungler myself I feel like I can say our jungler (Xin Zhao) was not good. He had no map presence, ganked when it wasn’t most convenient and never really helped us win a lane we couldn’t push because of enemy jungler’s presence (Volibear). Not only our lane I mean, Xin didn’t really do anything for any lane. At first I thought, well he’s gonna farm well and get OP, but no …
Also this Blitz didn’t go tanky enough soon enough and he was useless except for his arm which we did milk a little.
All in all I think we could’ve won, but alas teamwork is indeed OP. I decided to stop dying as much as the game ended because maybe if I had a good positive KDA it would be somehow taken into account for my Placement. I’m ready to play more and maybe tonight play the last of my “placements”.

That last game sucked and since then I’ve tried to see what actual high ELO gamers have to say about promos or placement’s and ifi they have recommendations. This guy Phylol has great videos that are very specific and vast. Also Foxdrop has many videos on improving you mechanics. He tells you about how to cope with losing games and about making your game better. And like them there are many others. I have seen them and they’re pretty good. I’ll try to apply some of it…
Vi Jungle again, was our team match-up had too many assasins for my taste, I worried we’d feed early, curiously only Soraka fed.
Spoiler: Read More…
Nothing special, let’s just get these over with. The games aren’t so bad, it’s the waiting and tension of the positioning that gets to you. So queue the motto and get this over with.
Welp this game was so bad I didn’t even want to blog about it for a few days, it was a disaster.
Spoiler: We SUKD.
I went support with Karma and my adc was a Miss Fortune. The laning fase was fine, we did fine. We got some kills and we started to win the match. Then MF’s lack of, what was it, brains maybe, we started to lose. We had the game, we won team fights but had no way to get objectives. MF’s specialty, getting towers, getting inhibitors, she did none of that shit, even with me calling them out, insisting. I don’t even remember what else went wrong. The No-No Java was spectating, maybe he can provide more insight, I was just too pissed…
Anyway I feel that game was as total throw. Coach told me the reason I get kills as the supp is that I secure kills that don’t need securing. I should be aggressive but should be more careful to not ever ks.
Basically through my head was forget last game, it didn’t happen, play again, and if you lose again re-evaluate your life. How can a game be so sucky, was it just the team, how did you not help more, could you have? So many things to sort out that I feel it would actually take me nowhere, so I decided no to waddle or meddle in those feels, jump out of the mud.
tl;dr read last posts Post-game thoughts.
Welp this guy says he’s a diamond smurf playing on some cousin’s account, he is either gonna troll ‘cuz he’s lying or he’s gonna carry. He asked for anything but supp. I was fourth pick so I went supp.
Spoiler: We #REKT
So I’m not re-evaluating my life, I’m going to keep laying LoL. I was Karma support, and the Diamond Smurf was Tristana ADC. I actually believe he was telling the truth ‘cuz he was good and chill and like in a hurry, like he had better things to do. I got a kill before him though, but it was my bad because I got W at lvl 2 and couldn’t shield him but we got enough damage to kill enemy Ashe who had a Niddalie support. From there on out we engaged a lot, got kills and few deaths, pushed tower, got it, helped mid got that too, etc… The other team just couldn’t handle it and we spiraled out of control.
They unanimously surrendered and we won “GG EZ”. I ended up 5/0/16. My adc 9/3/10. Was a good and swift game… just what I wanted and needed after the last one. GG 2:34 a.m. gotta sleep some.
I hear this is what solo queue is… first an awful game to shatter your belief in mankind, and then an incredible one to restore it. I never thought I would prove to be so true. This is proof that that kind of cliché story actually happens, that the fairytail is actually true.
I guess I should supp more and try to see if I can be more useful there. Mid would be good too, maybe….
