Sometimes I really suck at this game. The picture below shows some evidence of that. The mistake that I made was one that I’ve seen becoming more and more prevalent among Ezreal players; I thought that because I was Ezreal and had a couple kills in bottom lane that I was king. It turns out that if you forget to farm your items you don’t do any damage.
I was down to 5 kills and 6 deaths, a negative record, but I was getting behind on farm, so I dropped the chasing, the team fighting, the scouting and went to work. I shoved top until I had 5 people from the other team coming after me. Then I ran bottom and did the same. I took a tower, then continued to shove and the whole other team showed up to fight. I would just kite and run. I’m Ezreal, I have two blinks and Trinity Force. If I can just get out of the Ashe permaslow I’ll be fine.
Once I had items the whole game changed. I had enough lifesteal to fight the fed Riven from top lane. Luckily, I also had enough mobility to keep her from getting away. I fought my way back into this game and it felt great. I can’t blame Forrest because he was rusty and Riven is a joke. I’m just glad that we turned it around and won it. The enemy team actually surrendered but not before my old lady-friend yelled “Legendary!”
