I’ll grieve for the followers I lost in the morning
Thanks every one for keeping me company tonight it’s been a blast, I’m headed to sleep now though so I’ll try to answer any more questions privately whenever I wake up. No guarantee on how fast that’ll be though it’s not the norm for me to respond in a timely manner!
Q:I'm stuck in silver. Every other game is a disaster from someone rage quitting or just not connecting at all. However, I seem to do consistently well in my lane. I feel discouraged because no matter how bad I destroy my lane the other lanes get demolished and feed and I just sit there and watch my bot/mid lane go 0/9 before 10 minutes. Any advice or should I just quit ranked all together to save myself from the frustration?
You need to drop that mindset it is limiting your growth
If the thought of your teammates come up at any point during your ranked retrospection you’re doing it wrong. The same people who throw on your side also throw on the enemy team, and in fact feeders have a more positive effect on your elo than negative (this is due to the enemy team having 5 randoms versus your teams 4 randoms)
The only time your team will negatively affect your rating more than the ememies is when you yourself are a toxic player who causes them to tilt and throw, but once again that is dependent on how you act in soloqueue
Trust me, I’ve played this game a long time and talked to a lot of people. I swear to you this is 100% true. If ranked is really that stressful to you, I do recommend you stop as it isn’t worth it and there is no shame is just playing the game casually
A couple long posts I wrote about tackling ranked if you wish to keep going
best of luck friend, I hope whichever path you choose leads you to happy results
Q:What do you think of Gnar's performance in ranked games? Read that a lot of players avoid using him bcus of his unreliable form changes
Gnar is actually a god tier top laner right now and pick or ban priority, but ssssh most people haven’t figured it out yet
Q:Do you know or have spoken to any professional players? Like my waifu xpecial maybe?
Hai follows me but our interaction has just been a few lines so far, he’s pretty busy as you can imagine!
Aside from that no one, though I have MeyeA on my friends list who was briefly in the challenger series and pretty impressive at the game
Q:What's your favorite thing to do after a tough game? What varies between a win and a loss?
If I win I’ll check out tumblr and put on a hardcore song or two, I’m a big fan of video game music and I’ll take my pick of rock/dubstep/electronic remixes of whatever video games soundtrack I’m jamming out to now
Losing tends to last longer depending on whether or not I think I’m tilting, but my biggest thing is taking a break to shower if I really need to recalibrate
Q:How long have you secretly been a homestuck?
I’ve been a Homestuck for so damn long that when I read MSPAdventures it was PROBLEM SLEUTH.
Back in MY day we didn’t have ridiculous character development! And the boss fights were HARD. WE SPENT SIX MONTHS FIGHTING THE FINAL BOSS AND WE LIKED IT
Q:What was the craziest set of runes or masteries you've tried on a champion that's worked? Mine was 41% attack speed runes, amazing on yi and Warwick
I honestly hardly expirement at all with runes. The effect is just so negligible I’ve always just focused everything on improving my game
Probably coming back to bite me now, diamond 1 is about the mark where runes start having a serious effect :p
I guess my gnar runes right now are pretty crazy, 19 armor penetration from flat marks/quins but I copied that from Darien
Q:Can I braid your hair and paint your nails? You would look ten times more fab than usual ;)
Girl if you fly to Virginia you can give me a complete make over for how much you’d make my night
