I had a beginner’s luck game with Evelynn where nothing went wrong. I was like a super hero, providing relief for the struggling metropolis that was the Fields of Justice; its denizens, my team mates. I had about as many assists as Kobe that game.
My next experience with Evelynn wasn’t exactly the same story. I died seven times! I felt like a huge feeder. I was coming from behind, the enemy Rengar was super fed off my top lane, things were definitely not going smoothly. I only got two triple kills that game.
Last night I spent some time practicing some champions for top lane with Hunterofthetiki. After we got tired of killing each other we decided to play a normal. I DID NOT insta-lock Evelynn. Mid was the last role available. I calmly picked Evelynn. It was such a sigh of relief that it’s no longer a pavlovic trigger for my team to enter a rage and call me a troll when I play a champion like Evelynn.
I play too aggressively on Evelynn. I shouldn’t play that way against a Kat, and I learned that the hard way. She could get outside of my range much too quickly. I was eating daggers while being forced to be melee and I could see the blood in her eyes. Another thing that gets me depressed in mid is when the enemy has a jungler who can gank at level two and my jungler can gank at level six. I have never been so wrong. Hunterofthetiki was in bot lane and kept saying “This Warwick is SO good.” He was good, so good he beat me in total gold. In the jungle. On Warwick.
Despite getting beat by Kat early I just roamed top, picked up an assist on Darius, froze the lane for my Riven and then sprinted back mid to push before Kat could return. With mid pushed, and playing as Evelynn, I sprinted to bot lane to cause some trouble. Maokai cleverly tried to counter gank, but with the assistance of Warwick I managed to pick up a quick triple kill and move back to mid to catch the wave on it’s way back. After a 0-1-0 start I managed to hit Legendary and didn’t die again until I had nine kills.
My biggest mistake of this game was trying to kill Darius 1v4 and then Riven said, “He has Maw.” That’s all she said. Darius, top versus Riven, rushed a Maw of Maltorius. Warwick on the other hand had a finished Madred’s before he had finished his boots. With movespeed quints and Blood Scent he always had a ridiculous movement speed. Stacking Madred’s, Malady, and Wit’s End on Warwick must be OP.
All in all, my total K/D/A with Evelynn is something like 50/11/20 over three games averaging 16.3/3.6/6.6 if I do the math in my head.
