First Ranked of Season 3

Untitled 10101010


My first ranked game could have gone better, I was support so can’t really blame me for this one. I died 4 time to save my adc from dying early game and even though their team won they were really not very good. However we had a few problems. Our mid was Gragas vs Heimerdinger. He struggled even with ganks from my friend who was great jungler in the match. He used his running move to knock heimerdinger out of a sure death. He fed them 9 times early game and top lane was allowing Shen to cs too easily. Me and Caitlyn were doing great we had good cs and even with my deaths we were winning lane when the jungler was away. Lux went straight ap however and it ended up being our doom in the end. Our team was focusing the wrong champions and we were allowing Lux and twitch to do too much damage. My friend and I played our support and jungle roles really well and even took down lux, but the rest the team was too focused on tanks. In the end it was really inexperience from mid and top lane that hurt us. Also Caitlyn built blade instead of infinity and it really hurt us in the damage output also she was not really trying to get kills and in the end she was not trying to feed and shut down Lux which was a argument I brought up early game to shut down lux. Twitch was not in the CS business and that helped our lane push down tower, but it was a trade 1-1 because they got mid and after that it fell apart.

My question is this, is Taric still a champion to support with or is his changes in the update making shatter less effective making him nothing more than a stunner? I even tried going twin shadows to see if ap would help shatter but it really didn’t.


Learning Your Role in League of Legends


It’s important in League of Legends to know your role. Each champion has a role, and each lane has a group of champions that can play it effectively. The truth is that lately people have been completely unresponsive to the roles designed to them. I am a mid or support player. I either support the AD carry on bottom or I push mid with communication and wards. Yet for some reason I have seen a great amount of players deciding that champion kills are the only thing that matter so they push for the champ kills and nothing else. They let their lane fall victim to minions and champs while they go gank another lane. Maybe I am mistaken but isn’t the point to League of Legends to work as a team to win?

If you do not know your role ask someone for help or research the champion. After you hit level 30 you need to know each purchased champions you play to perfection. Know their builds, their pro’s and cons’s, and when to runs from a fight and when to push the fight. League is a easy game to learn, but a hard game to master. So learn from the team and if you don’t know your role or champion, go play against the ai and get experience.
