    Speaking of this (and C9)
    I wonder how much losing MSI (which C9 would have qualified for thanks to their Spring Split) hurt C9 down the stretch. Getting the opportunity to test yourself against international competition on that stage could have given the org a better idea of where their strengths and weaknesses were. Instead, they went into summer with the same basic understanding of themselves, and when other teams adjusted they never had a chance.

    Why do pro players turn into bronze players when they play heceram? Seriously, they speed up, engage, and are all of a sudden 3 screens away from their team because they went too fast. Especially if they have a zilean speeding them up. He always ends up in a 1v5.

    Does match making for unranked ever level out or am I going to forever be playing against people who are 200 to 300 levels higher than me?

    If you're getting matched with them either they have an even newer (or more likely smurf) partner, or they play at your level in normals. It can also be deceiving if they grind ranked all day then kick back in normals and the disparity in mmr kicks in.

    Pretty smooth sailing up until my gold promos, at which point I immediately start matched with trolls and teammates who are outrageously overmatched by their opponents. Bad luck, I suppose.

    Think I might try transitioning away from jungle. Originally took it as a way to influence the whole map early and give myself tools to compensate for bad teammates, but it feels lately that the talent level always tells, and I can help a lane out and get them a lead or at least a bridge to a more powerful midgame, but it all comes out in the wash and if the player is bad, there's just no helping them. Maybe if I swap to mid or top, I can just try snowballing myself.

    I have been spending a lot of time watching Midbeast’s China super server streams. Just seeing the absolute pure HAM that everyone on that server is almost indistinguishable from the game play I see in bronze and silver.

    i really wish when people queued with their diamond+ friends it did more to bring up the mmr of the group. a diamond and a plat with 2 silvers and a gold should never play against 4 silvers and a gold.

    this group has a 70% winrate in over a hundred games this season, like it's just a waste of my time to be put against them. like sure, you can play with your friends no matter the mmr difference, but you don't get to play against people multiple leagues lower than you that you can easily control the entire game and decimate multiple lanes. i've lost 7 games in a row and at least 3 of them have had diamonds on the other team, i'm silver 2.

    I managed to shame a griefing vlad into not griefing

    He quietly sold his hurricane (ugh) and bought a rabadons. And then split pushed and sucked, but brought enough to the table that we were able to win

    I basically yelled at him that I worked all day and was trying to enjoy myself with my limited free time and he was ruining it! I’m surprised it worked.

    This is me as ADC

    More seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if there were a bit of correlation here: if I have a terrible score, I might be the worst player on the team and more likely to get carried because the other people are better.

    Yeah yesterday I played a game where ok no excuses but I started 0/6/0 (like during lane, just so awful) as Jhin into Twitch/Janna (so they were way better scaling and also weaker early but um well things happened) and then we won! As I was playing I remarked to loser that if there is justice in the world, I should not win this game.

    I did end 3/6/8, so credit to me for eventually figuring out how to stop dying I suppose and not being one of those players who goes 0/20. We did have a smurf jungle who made a giant difference, and then our top also won quite hard and roamed much more effectively than their top (their top camille could not kill me in her ult; it was sad for her).

    But yeah, can I affect a single game of league of legends with my play, carry or feed--apparently not.

    The worst part is that every game I have played in ranked this week has been like that.

    Play like shit? Somehow we win! Dominate all parts of the game I am responsible for? We lose!

    And unfortunately? I have had way more games that I played well than ones I haven’t lately. I didn’t even know it was possible for the Blitz App to award a first place instead of MVP, but I guess it does since the MVP has to be on the winning team!

    I think I may have figured out the problem.

    I am too good on Swain and also not good enough.

    I am not good enough on Swain to carry a team. I can carry a lane, but more often than not I end up getting fed and the ADC does not.

    On Janna I am just 100% supporting my dipshit ADC and as such don't have to hard carry. I can just hard facilitate.

    Welcome to bot lane. Agency is not present there.

    I play mid now, it’s much more fun getting 28 kills on Annie and controlling the match than farming for 25 minutes on an adc to have a support 1v1 me anyway.
