February 1, 2013- Beginnings

Season 3 officially begins and the ELO reset takes its toll on the ranked community. Placement matches begin to take form, and the idiot that I am, I follow the crowd and start matching. I have my trustworthy friend to help win these matches/ease the pain. Without fret and any sign of hesitation, we went on and played our ten matches. However in the end it didn't go so great.

Spoiler:
 

The final record at the end of the day was about 6-4. It could have been worse, but the damage has been done. I would be placed at Gold ll, a rank below Platinum tier and my friend would be descended into Silver l, a division right under Gold V.

February 2, 2013- Ongoing- The Trudge on the Golden Path

So I've been ranking in Season 3 since the very beginning. So two months and a bit more. It's painful, it's stressful, and full of involuntary facepalms. Picture yourself stranded in say, an island with your friend. The island is completely foreign to you and there is no sense of civilization anywhere. You feel desperate, ready to break down and burst into savagery due to the darkness within yourself.

But I'm not ready to break down, not yet at least. I have been close to reaching Platinum borders about three to four times now, but the endless tidal waves of arrogant children keep blocking my path. We've failed so many times to the point I'm about to be demoted to Gold ll, and my duo partner to Gold lll.

I've made this little blog of mine because the only thing we do together is play League, which is sad but cool. Also because the players here have grown acquainted with the game that some have began their ranked journeys. This blog will show a fresh and mostly-accurate depiction of the Ranked world in LoL from my own perspective.

Questions of the Current Ranking Mind

Why is it when you get an assassin like Akali or Diana on your team, they suck in comparison to the enemy team's Akali or Diana, which pretty-much single-handily carried the game for them?

Why are more Platinum players showing up more on the enemy team than your own? Ex: The enemy team has a Platinum II, Platinum IV, Platinum V, Platinum V, Gold l, while your team has a Platinum V, Gold l, Gold l, Gold ll, Gold lll?

Why do Attack Damage Carries still consider 'Blade of the Ruined King' as a core item in their builds even though it's not cost-efficient and also has been nerfed significantly?

Why do lower tiers or divisions always seem to be higher-pick than those of higher divisions and tiers?

Why does the Tribunal ironically create a more negative and bias community instead of its intended goal of bringing justice?

These are all questions that I have compiled over my two months of constant research and play. They are all open to opinion and not one answer can be the most exact until further information from an official source is given out. (Or if there is, please refer it to me on Skype, Realphobia PM, or even Steam.

It's because Blade of the Ruined King can be rushed alongside Infinity Edge. It gives attack speed, which makes it better for adcs than bruisers. I don't suggest rushing it straight out since it gives practically 0 standalone damage, but that passive % damage is op. I like doran's blades and bf sword with bork as my optimal build to kickstart the midgame phase.

In an era where everybody stacks health, not having swag-thief will make your autoattacks look like you're slapping those high-damage bruiser assassin tank initiator bitchfaces with a dead fish.

Also the fact that I fucking started winning almost all of my adc games this season after I started building it at a first item, whereas before I was building oldschool infinity into phantom dancer adc and doing no damage. Just food for thought.


I'm not one to believe in magic
But I sometimes have a second sight
I'm not one with a sense of proportion
When my heart still changes overnight

Hey Shin, you're a Pro player so I want you to try and explain something for me...

Spoiler:
 

Why did that work?




I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Zac is pretty much a clone of Dr. Mundo concept-wise, he's a health tank that does mediocre but consistent damage. His AP ratios are weak so it's better to play him as a tanky bruiser or hard tank. I think all or most of his abilities cost a percentage of his health...He also grows bigger when you buy more health items. Come on now.

April 17,2013- The Ahri That Cried Lights

I fucking hate people who disconnect games. Leaving early in Summoner's Rift is actually worse than leaving early in Dominion. Simply because Summoner's Rift is actually played and every role is vital unless the stars align or something.

Speaking on the topic of dcers, I had one today. An individual who was fourth pick in the assembly line and wanted to play mid so often. So she picked Ahri against a Vladimir mid lane. She has no map awareness and has caused deaths for her team 70-80% of the time. She then mysteriously left the game and pretty much lost the lane against Vlad. Comes back, said it was due to an issue with her 'lights?'

So, recap. No map awareness, feeds and blames it on something else? Not a good start. But I believe I haven't seen that much of the Ahri yet. And the enemy champions gave proof that the Ahri indeed was the scum of the earth.

Jayce and his electric balls, hits Ahri every single time. Every teamfight, Jayce would poke her down to the point, Vi could just towerdive her 50 HP ass. She continued to throw the game in similar fashion until they just pushed to our Nexus.

In short, if you know how to play a role, don't let others take it. In short short, don't trust pubs.
