    One of my first games had a Kha'Zix rapidly feeding top (10+ kills without any jungler intervention) but other than that I didn't have anything too bad. Usually at least one of our lanes broke even. In my last game we had a jungle Ezreal but we still won because their Singed thought he was Shy.

    Just normal support, but I roamed a bit more than usual. Nobody expects a Lulu gank, or even better a countergank.

    man, I had everything. Though I was doing it as a jungler, and people don't always follow the jungler. But 4 games in a row were either someone never even connected to the game, straight up randomly afking or just quitting. Sucks when that happens at the beginning because your elo will drop a lot more than normal. Like I lost 4 games in a row the other day, so I lost around 40-50 elo. I lost around 100-120 when I started when that happened.

    You gonna keep laddering, or are you going to just stay with gold for the janna skin.

    Gz on the gold Alaitoc!

    I love those wins on Lulu.

    And you got lucky you didn't get any afk'ers or something like that.

    Those Naut games were my jungling games. One of the losses was due to that retarded Kha'Zix, the other was my fault. I don't like jungling when there's a lot of pressure.

    Don't we get the Janna skin even if we aren't actually gold when the season finishes? I thought it was only your highest rating that mattered. I'm not sure whether I will keep going (in solo queue), ranked is pretty stressful and I doubt I will be able to get much closer to plat.

    ya you get it once you have reached gold at any point. What I meant was were you going to go for a higher elo or just play normals now that you have gold.

    On a side note from the streams going boom twice today, TSM's Reginald is calling it quits.

    I stopped watching streams and tournaments for about like 3 months ago, but when I saw him play he kinda played horrible and did really bad decisions in the lane phase... I don't know how he is now but I remember that he played really risky.

    Just had a very weird game where both sides only had AP or AD players and no tanks/support. I think we both just decided "well the team comp is screwed up already so lets just go with the flow". The game lasted long enough for everyone to get full builds and it was just so weird. Our fights was pretty much run in and one shot as many people as you can before dying yourself. No fight lasted more than 10 seconds from start because everyone was being killed in under a second outside of hourglass/ult.

    In the end my team won because of being able to kill two that were trying to rush our nexus down. I don't think I'll ever see a game like that again, but it was an interesting experience. Kinda makes me want to play a game where everyone picks assassin champions.

    How? Eachof my win gives me 10-14 elo, so starting from 1200 or whatever up to 1513 I would need 26 wins. U have 12 W, 3L...wth?

    You get 50 Elo till you make 13 matches more less, then it keeps dropping until you make 50 matches, which only give around 7-12 Elo. It's pretty fast to go high at low Elo if you don't loose much.

    I didn't know about this...so, thats ridiculous. My first 13 matches were 9 lost because of afkers/trolls/unskilled as hell. So I am stuck in "elo hell" until next season. Yes I tried to pass 1500 and max I got was 1349, now I am down to 1195 or smth after 149 Wins 147 Losses and during those matches I admit I had only like 10 on which I failed my role/champ. Eh...pointless. I really hate this design path which Riot took and yes, I stay away from solo/duo rankeds forever now. U can play like top players and still u control your elo in 20%, no more.

    Normally I play mid/support, because everytime they spam with "I ad!!! I top I jungle!!" and later they blame me (support) for losing Thats utter nonsense I ward well, I trap well, I support well, I even tease enemy well...eh.

    It helps good players get to their ELO's higher. Why do you think skilled players and pros often win all 10 of their placement matches? People are bad enough that you SHOULD be able to carry them. Not everyone will pull their own weight, sometimes you have to pull a bit more than your own.

    Well, I can't carry as a support. Those lost games were as a supprt. I did all I could but for exmaple one Kog just had to go rambo and get catched by blitz...6 deaths in a row and later on blame me for not helping him to fight feed ez, etc.

    How come I win 8 out of 10 games random Draft, but once I hit Ranked I end up 5 to 21 past 25min mark...
    Someone got an advice how to win at least some games at about 1k Elo?
    No matter how hard I win my lane, both other lanes are just handing out free legendaries to the enemy to compensate for it.
