I had the honor of playing two games against a stalwart opponent. His name was Slight Soluble. When I said hi to him at the start of the second game he responded with “Oh no, not that Lulu.” What a great start to the game!
We didn’t have a jungler, because Katarina refused to play anywhere but mid, despite the fact that our team already had Lux to play mid. When Galio didn’t connect at the start of the game we immediately knew that we needed to band together to win this 4v5. Our team split up the lanes and started discussing when we would clear the jungle and how we would handle lanes.
Eventually, Galio did connect, but the enemy team immediately started picking on him. It’s easy to kick a player when they’re down, isn’t it?
We did really well in bot lane. Ashe wasn’t using Volley very early in the laning phase, so I could get about as much free harass on her as I wanted. Steve did a superb job or ice-balling Ashe and letting me farm in safety. We pressed our advantage to propel me to a quick lead, which got me a finished Infinity Edge and Phantom Dancer by 21 minutes, a new personal best.
Katarina started complaining about lag issues. We were split. The enemy team would rather chase Nunu and myself around than pressure turrets. So I told my team that we needed to group. We started walking down mid lane and found a Skarner just hanging out by himself. As we were killing him the rest of the enemy team engaged on us. Nunu and Galio both got to channel their ults in a bush and Kog got to right-click on people who couldn’t right-click back. Those fireworks never felt better.
Pet peeve: I hate buying Guardian Angel only to die a minute later. That didn’t happen this game, but it happened early this week and it just made me so frustrated. I rage-sold a Guardian Angel! I technically didn’t die, because it saved my life, but it was still taking up a slot in my inventory and had five minutes before it would be any use to me.
