I swear our team was bi-polar last night. We had two games in a row where the other team made some plays when it counted. We couldn’t get on the same page. We missed objectives, we didn’t team fight, we didn’t communicate. Everything went wrong.
Going into the last game of the night I was upset. Like most people I abhor losing. Dropping two games in a row was unacceptable, especially after a 5-1 start with this ranked team. This was a huge motivating factor for me. I wanted this third game to be perfect.
We leashed blue for Hecarim and I missed some creep experience in lane because of it. However, Trist can beat Miss Fortune, and Taric can help beat Leona. We had a really good chance in this lane. Miss Fortune let me shoot her in the face a bunch and I landed my E on her a number of times while she was using a health potion. With no sustain and her potions wasted we quickly pressed our advantage in bot lane. Leona kept trying to stun my Taric, which resulted in her over-extending and eating a bunch of free damage from my creeps and me. It was pretty cute watching Leona stun and then Taric stun and then Leona stun again and then Taric stun again. Neither support went for the enemy carry. It was a 1v1v1v1 lane! If that’s the case then I’m glad I’d been attacking Miss Fortune so much!
Leona realized too late that she had been harassed too low. A quick jump, E, and ignite finished her off for First Blood. It’s just what I needed after the last two games.
There was a strange lull in this game where I thought we were grouping mid, but I showed up late and my team had rotated top. I got caught by Wu Kong and Amumu. They both blew ult to kill me 2v1. I just shrugged, and went back to bot lane. I just farmed and farmed to get ahead. Hit my Infinity Edge and Phantom Dancer. At that point I knew I’d be safe in bot lane because I could just shoot anyone who came to fight me.
We did have one big team fight where things went a little strange. We were fighting over dragon. I came from the bottom side while my team was all above. Unfortunately, this meant that I ended up fighting 1v2 against Leona and Wu Kong! With nowhere to run I fought them. Just as I was about to die I dealt a killing blow to Leona and got another jump from it. I jumped away from Wu Kong. I called for help, but my team had moved down into blue side’s jungle, fighting just below Wraiths. I ran from Wu Kong as best I could towards my team. Just as I’m getting near the team fight I’m using attack move, and I get in range of Amumu and auto attack once. Oops. Welp, I got kill credit for that! Oh well! This means I get another jump!
My team turns and finishes up Wu Kong and I live to see another day! Did anyone else notice how much gold Iggie ended with? Second highest! This is especially impressive considering Jake held Wu Kong to the lowest gold on the enemy team. A good game for Security Matrix!
