It's nkirbit as well.  I think we've played a game, but I didn't add you.. I just shot you an invite though.

I just got promoted for the first time!  I'm sure many of you have many times before, but it was cool to experience for the first time.  I even jumped two divisions at once!

Congrats! The double division jump is a really good sign that you are a much better player than your rank :)

If there's anyone else here playing, we made a ranked FDS team. You should join!

That was a ton of fun, even though we lost.  I think Jarvan has to be more of a later pick for me, since against a Tristana I'm just so miserable.  Someone like Vi would have put her in her place, or even Cho'Gath could just be the ultimate peeling machine.

Then again, everything ideally is a late pick ... so I dunno.  I like Shawnee's Anivia a lot but that has to be our last pick every time.  Against a more immobile team comp (imagine if their Zac was a Shen instead) I think we dumpster every teamfight with the Jarvan/Anivia ults.

Yeah, it was a load of fun. Hopefully I'll figure out how to get my mic to work at some point :P

I think my Morg play was definitely the weak link -- I've played less than 10 games with her, and I'll get better, but I probably should have stuck with Gragas who I'm more comfortable with. I definitely felt a lot less pressure to win in this than in a solo ranked game, though, which is definitely a good thing.

I think we're limited a bit on swapping by myself and Nkirbit both owning less than 20 champions. If Anivia is someone we're going to be regularly picking though I can definitely buy her to help out.

Edit: I definitely use the word definitely too much...

Heck no, I had the lowest KDA and wasn't always on the same page with mcmcsalot.  Also, I wasn't watching you in teamfights but it seemed like you guys did well in lane.  I do think you should play whatever you're comfortable with, and we can all modify what we play to adjust.

That game was way closer than I thought it was at the end.. they were only 2.3k gold up before the last fight.  I would've guessed that it was closer to 10k.

I had tons of fun playing!

Yea I had probably the most fun I have had I a long time playing league when I wasn't just enjoying stomping. Shawnee can definitely play lulu/ori mid as well and those are safer picks if she's higher on the list. I suggest nkirbit and TA buy shyvanna as that is a likely pick for me and can be early.

I had so much fun I will definitely get back into watching streams and lcs(I haven't watched since the split started) and get better at shot calling, I think that's a definite weak point for us. If my calls improve and I'm more confident it will be easier to make sure we are all on the same page which is really important.

We were really close in skill and lane to them, but I put us in some bad positions which put us really far back.

Congrats!

My participation in this kinda fell off, it just didn't keep me interested at all. Keeping up with LCs is enough of a time commitment on its own.


Also, we should play some more ranked games so we don't lose our team name!

Yes!  We should arrange a time we can all do it.  For now, I'm pretty much free whenever, so whatever times are best for you all works for me.

In thinking more about our games yesterday, I think dragon control really changes the game considerably.  We were on point with every single dragon and so even if we fell behind early, we were never really behind in global gold.

Hey, I'll add you later when I'm on.

We recently started a ranked team, and we try to play that whenever we have 5 people.  It's not a high pressure situation, though.. we routinely rotate players in a desperate attempt to find 5, so pretty much anyone who is online and willing to play is able to.

Yeah, If you guys are constantly short of a support, maybe I'll have motivation to get to level 30. Currently at level 20 before I stopped playing in May.

We rotate around depending on who's available.  If Ryan/Kaitlin are on, I jungle; if JR [non f.dser though I know him through boardgames] is playing, then I mid.

If you're only level 20, we are still happy to play with you!  We're mentoring someone else on her trek to 30 right now, so you can join in that :)

(And yes, I know it's a real grind to get to 30, but there's an advantage to it, which is that you kind of need that much experience in the game to get good at it.)

Cool, and yeah I really like the level 30 system for ranked. It ensures an even playing field for masteries and rune availabilities. You also get the play experience along the way.

What happened was I binge grinded to get to level 20 before the April 30% off rune sale ended. That left me burned out of LoL for awhile. I should have more time for it once school starts again in September.

Do you have a group of people to play with?  I find that my enjoyment of League declines dramatically if I'm not playing in a group of friends.

Yeah, playing with friends is definitely key for making the game more enjoyable.

I play mostly support, I find I'm much better at it than any other role. Nkirbit and I usually duo bottom when we're both on.

Unfortunately my computer /internet is crappy and I can't play a game and be on voice chat at the same time :(

You guys should definitely play with our ranked team when you can!
