I decided over my winter break to get back to League a bit and try to do some ranked games. That turned into a 10 game marathon to see where I fall. I wound up in Silver I when all was said and done. Pretty good for a rusty old fart like myself.
I realized a few things while playing that needed to be corrected immediately.
A)Bots had made me lazy. I played Bot games to the point of knowing their exact patterns. I forgot how unpredictable humans are.
B)The new items had me thrown for a loop. Where the fuck was my Reverie? What was I doing with free wards? Why did no one ward still if they gave you free ones?
C)I needed a wider champion base.
So while not the best choice, I’ve gone back to playing PVP Normals for a bit. Save up IP for new champions(I’ve gotten Quinn and Rengar so far), learn these new masteries and items(such memorization is more Trevor’s thing), and realize that people are not computer code that goes a certain way. So, please come play with me if you have a chance!
