Monthly update – League of Legends (Part 2)

Oh man it’s been a while. I’ve been wanting to upload that for a while now but for whatever reasons it got delayed because I was too busy working or playing BOTW ( ̄へ ̄)

I thought playing other games would make me realize how pointless it was to tryhard on League of Legends… but I was wrong (I might also be addicted to League so don’t mind me trying to find excuses).

First off I had to figure out a way to unrust in a fast manner so I played a few ARAM with friends before I got bored and realized how inefficient it was. The only decent option left to me was to play soloQ on my main account which was D1.

Let’s be real here. I knew it wouldn’t go well since my champion pool is as bad as it has always been. But I spammed soloQ regardless and dropped all the way down to D4. It was kinda embarassing so I decided to stop playing Nunu/Kindred… I know what I’ve stated about both champions in my second article but in the end it takes way too much effort to make those two work in a soloQ setup.

I had some tricks up my sleeve though and managed to go back up to D2 by playing Rammus only, he’s in a pretty good state as off right now I’d say. I grew sort of bored of it so I decided I’d play some midlane -Zilean- since I’ve always sucked there and after all it was still pre-season. BUT it went ten times better than I had expected and I managed to reach D1 50 LP with over 70% winrate on Zilean with a 7+ KDA which I’m quite proud of.

I’m pretty happy with how things turned out and I think my MMR will be decent enough to skip divisions early season if I don’t screw things up. I gave it some thoughts and I will be streaming my entire progression (I even prepared a fresh level 30 account, which I’m gonna hold for mid-season most likely).

And that’s pretty much it about League, I will upload another article as soon as possible because there are a lot of stuff I’d like to talk about, especially about IRL. It should be out later today… for real this time !

Thanks for reading and see you guys on my stream tomorrow for some fun soloQ experience hopefully ≧ω≦

I’m ready for season 2018

Quick update regarding MKW and my smurf

Hello there,

First of all sorry about my inactivity. I didn’t expect to be quite as inactive as I currently am. All of a sudden I became pretty busy due to the fact that I have found a new job which has been pretty interesting so far. I want this to work out well so I won’t be slacking off from my workplace which might explain the inactivity.

Thanks to Black Friday I managed to buy a new domain name for relatively cheap, being a lot more cooler and relevant to this blog than used to be. I used to have some knowledge about DNS and all this stuff but I forgot it all so I had to ask XeR to step in… shoutouts to him!

I will talk about my MKW situation before I move onto the League of Legends part.

I left Forgotten Legends because it turned into a toxicity well I had no longer the control of. I have been trying to fix it for months but I couldn’t find the right compromise inbetween decent activity / low toxicness.

To be completly honest, I was about to play next season with FGT1 but that’s obviously not going to happen anymore since I left FGT.

I asked the remaining people in Forgotten Legends to use a different teamname / tag because I can’t stand the fact that some people are ruining any further the reputation we once had and that I actually struggled so hard to optain but it didn’t work out so well as they are still using it as off right now even though XeR and I aren’t playing for them anymore.

I used this opportunity to leave WL council as well. Points being discussed lately weren’t even close to be interesting, which got me bored. While I understand their points about wanting to run a fair and supposedly hack-less league, they also forgot that we were talking about a 10 years old, almost dead game. I disagree with this approach of trying to exclude some more players when we are already pretty low on numbers, I probably wouldn’t care so much if I wasn’t one of those but I actually am. Some degenerates have been hacking for years and even though we haven’t caught them yet it should be relatively easy to guess who is hacking nowadays. Constant item luck shouldn’t be a thing.

Either way I am not going to bother buying a new GCN controller in order to play WL, so if council decides to run a CTGP-only league then fine, I won’t be playing next season, no big deal really as I was planning to get back into League of Legends anyway.

However if rules somehow remain the same I will be playing one more season with BA1 and warm the bench as my skills as well as my motivation are pretty low at the moment. Also the fact that I can’t score decently during trollwars really isn’t helping as it is BA1’s favorite ruleset. BA1 suicide war super sub title incoming. All of this is susceptible to change though since I have no words to say when it comes to important decisions because I do not have a leading role in BA’s squad.

Let’s move on to another much more interesting topic. As I mentionned in my previous article I’m currently leveling up a smurf on which I will be climbing the ladder while streaming when I will have reached level 30. I will probably play most games solo but I might have a duoQ partner for some. I can only think of 3 people at the moment: Doyy, Fener and Kamisora even though the last one didn’t show up since forever.

I have been trying a few different runesets with Nunu and while it didn’t feel so good ingame I still had decent results regarding winrate even though I am playing in D2+ elo while being rusty.
I don’t want to rely on Nunu only from now on though but since I used to be a pretty versatile player, I should be able to adapt pretty fast to something more carry-oriented.

As off right now Kindred seems to be in a decent spot, and I used to be a pretty solid Kindred player back when she was relevant in soloQ so it seems to be the perfect timing for me to pick her up again.
While I used to be a decent player I think I have stepped down a whole lot compared to early Season 2017 which means I will have to go through a learning process again. Thanks to Reddit, I have found a good Kindred player. I will spend quite some time to watch his replays and little things he does in order to carry games.

Oh well it wasn’t that much of a “quick” update but I had to say all those things about MKW so here it is. Thanks for reading untill the very end, I will bless you with a good music.
