    Watched some Zwag on Xerath. Think, "Wow that looks awesome, I bet I can do that."

    Load up game as mid. Get crushed. Think, "This game is so hard."

    Decide to try again but ban Yassuo this time. 50k damage in 30 minutes and hard carry team. #itssobeautiful

    I finally hit gold as mid karthus, and I still can't figure out yassuo. Zed I can usually trade kills with while out farming and be more useful in team fights. Yassuo is supposed to be a fairly OK matchup, as you can q and predict his dashes. His wall also doesn't stop your q's.

    I just get fucking smashed, sit at lane, while yassuo roams and I hope I can push and at least get ahead on creeps.

    Yassuo just fucking sucks. I usually ban fizz though as he's a horrible match up for karthus in my experience. Dude just smashes me, poles my ultimate, roams, and gets huge.

    Fuck fizz.

  • KoregKoreg Registered User regular
    With Yasuo you need to get the push and keep it up. If he's roaming but no CS he's useless. Karthus pushes like no other.

    Huh, apparently I had a 90% win rate on Kai'Sa?

    And apparently I played Sona for 54% of my games last season.

    For the first time I have the most deaths to Kai'sa instead of to Lucian, which makes sense because it took me *forever* to understand her damage output in lane, whereas I'm finally just playing carefully around Lucian.

    ...it also says I have a 70% loss rate against Xin Zhao which can't be true, can it? Number seems way too big. If it is true, what does that even mean? That I just can't actually play the game against early gankers, maybe...?

    I think I had the most deaths to Ezreal.

    Probably half of them being when I'm recalling in a bush and he snipes me with a ult.

    100% loss rate against Yorick, though, woof.

    He's not just an early ganker he's also a hard engage late that can isolate carries. His ultimate creates a gap in space that can be hard for mid-long range ADCs to navigate.

    So I placed in Bronze 2 on January 22nd. Ended the season Gold 5. That feels pretty good looking back on it.

    How are you guys seeing all these detailed stats, like best win rate of the year and such?

  • RickRudeRickRude Registered User regular
    Ok I found it all, I just had to scroll down. Wish they didn't include ARAM in the stats, feel like it's maybe skewing some things. I lost most to trundle and won most against pantheon, which seems odd as a mid main. And I don't feel like I faced either of them a whole lot.

    Getting Karthus in ARAM feels like cheating. I climbed to gold basically on him alone. I just get in there and destroy people. Don't think I've ever not gotten an S, and it's usually S+'s. Run barriar in ARAM with him, so I can really bait people in when I'm low on health and just pour the damage on. One of the few times I get to build a tear on him, as I always prefer a more tanky build going RoA into Zhonya's MPen. I swear I'm going to write a guide for him one day. I don't like how other people suggest playing him heh.

  • IvelliusIvellius Registered User regular
    I love the "Year in Review" stuff. Played Zac the most last season, which still made up only ~15% of my jungle games. I was surprised Maokai (and Rammus) didn't make the cut, given my early-season spam of them, but Normals outweighed them, apparently.

    Played Zyra support the most in that role for 21.2% of those...hm.

    I'm bad against Twisted Fate (80% loss) and good against Ornn (80% wins). Killed Yasuo the most.

    Jhin killed me the most of any champion again. I also won nearly three quarters of my Illaoi games which is surprising considering the amount of game I played on her but I also tend to pick her in games where she can flourish.

    https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/2951916309/203490857?tab=overview this one was so tragic; just as it looked like our botlane hard carry (come out of lane as Vayne Nami vs Zyra Draven with first blood and Vayne 5/1--holy shittt that was great) was finally overcoming the all-game feeding of sololaners and inexplicably blue Kayn, the Kayn elected to solo invade enemy red before Baron with no vision (to be clear, I was setting up Baron vision but not as deep as their red); the Singed also then got caught out running around for no reason. Then when they pushed as 5, instead of trying to defend at our turrets, Vayne tilted off the face of the planet and suicided one-for-one 1v5 into them at our inhib.

    Sigh....

    Maybe I can play Nami though! That would be cool. I still do not as a Zyra main understand who counters Zyra so it was a bit of a panic pick. I think Nami sort of can. You definitely win lvl 1--it's really hard to win lvl 1 into Zyra, but if she walks up to Q, you can 1. in theory, dodge the Q, and 2. even if you don't, you W auto aery her for a decent chunk of damage. And if she gets bubbled she's completely fucked. (I also sort of think Alistar counters her, but only if the adc matchup is favorable--not with Vayne into Draven. And I also might only feel that's a counter matchup because I don't understand Alistar well--but no, I mean skillful hard engage *does* counter Zyra, and Ali's engage requires the least skill (and can't be blocked by a plant) so he counters her the most, probably.

    Yeah, I'm seeing a whole bunch of jungle Nasus recently--is someone playing it on stream or something? It seems pretty good, obviously better as the game goes on rather than a power ganker, but he definitely scales well.

    I seem to be favoring Morgana for tryhard ranked at the moment. I really hope the rework doesn't change her Q or E...

    Which in theory comes out to be 39 stacks for Krugs...though that's not realistic for much of the game.

    I don't know if it's because we're still in preseason or what, but there is frustrating large amount of people afking or refusing to play. Like, at least in the past people would just disconnect and it sucked but you could hand wave it and move on. But now it seems like people intentionally stay around and farm jungle or run circles in the base and refuse to surrender or participate. It's worse than DCing. Is Riot not punishing this behavior anymore? It's killing the experience for me because it seems like half my games are non-games.

    It ain't much better in bot games. Every single bot match has had at least 1 obvious bot program running. I actually don't mind the times where my team is 2 bots, 1 random player, and a friend and I are duoing (it lets both of us get our try-hardy pants on and try to scratch a win out of the jaws of defeat). Still, it's frustrating to have happen.

    ...Athene's?
    I kinda build whatever on her after Zhonya's but it never occurs to me to build a chalice. Here are my recent builds; there is thought behind them but...I don't know, not a lot of thought, just buying what feels right in the moment.
    (3 of these games are carries but the last one is a hard feed, me+my adc just straight inting our lane, but fortunately sololaners were great and once lane was over we both stopped dying every 5 seconds. Was rough though...)
    (also I will very occasionally build mobis if the enemy support is a Thresh or Alistair who is trying to run around the map, so I can run after them. I'd probably often build mobis in 5s/team play as well)
