This game had one of the closest team fights because of a late-game Miss Fortune that almost wrecked us. However, she made a critical mistake and instead of the penta kill for her team, she picked up the ace for our team.
Our whole team had an extremely high level of kite potential. We never really put it to good use until the final team fight. We lost a fight at Baron and were scattering down the river towards mid. As we were passing over mid, all members of my team below 1/4 HP, Miss Fortune came bustling from just south of her team. She was at full health and had the build you can see below. It looks like she forgot to pop her Red Elixir, but I don’t think it would have made a difference.
She chased us down the river, with the potential to kill almost any of us with one click. Staying just outside of her range we waited for cooldowns. Her strut put her in range of my Noxian Corrosive Charge. When that landed on her I think she realized she was dead. Enabling my Terror Capacitor allowed for my Acid Hunters to slow her movement and crush her HP pool. After a barrage of Acid Hunters I could see that she wasn’t going to make it. I can’t remember who snagged her with a skillshot, but either Lee or Lux pegged her from range and just finished her off. This immediately ignited our hopes, and we turned the fight around. With Miss Fortune down, and Akali killed in the earlier engagement we knew we had the victory.
Urgot can still be strong in Solo Queue, but I had to dominate my lane, while avoiding Zyra plants, and it wasn’t easy. Even with my lane dominated, we still got plenty of action in bottom lane from the enemy jungler and Zilean. This tie game goes to Urgot, for making sure his team didn’t throw.
I just wanted to throw in the fact that this Jarvan was an idiot. We had won a team fight, but weren’t strong enough to take Baron, so we shoved mid. We called to retreat so we could get to Baron fast enough before the enemy team did. I stepped to recalled, bought Home Guards and Oracles (because my team had negative KD’s and I had money) and rushed to Baron. At this point I did exactly what I was supposed to do. I was not the one who called the retreat, I was respecting someone else’s judgment call to avoid getting caught by the enemy team. I was at the objective we were trying to secure, I was clearing wards, I was full health. The rest of my team stayed mid, pushed another tower, took inhib, and got caught. Were they expecting to escape from Zilean and Akali? Why? It was such a dumb move that put them further negative and just made the game harder for us as a team. Idiots in Solo Queue, let me tell you what I told my team that day: “Greed loses more games than anything.” Close games are lost by greed. Overstaying your welcome, trying to dive for that one kill, extending for that last CS without a ward, it’s these little things that cost you games. Get back, heal up, get in position for Baron as five. Don’t allow a late-game Miss Fortune to ruin your day. You’ve already won the game because you are getting carried, don’t make it more of a burden on your team. /rant
