In the loading screen of this game I thought it was pretty cool that I had a Platinum Nunu on my team. I congratulated him on hitting that milestone. He countered with “I’m actually more like 900 elo, I just got carried.” Haha! This kid gots jokes! I just wish he was kidding.
During the loading screen it looked like we would have a Blitzstar lane, which is Blitzcrank and Alistar. It amounts to a ton of crowd control and the worse possible situation for an AD carry. I didn’t think that the Blitzstar lane would give us much of a problem as I had faced it before (when I was Kog) and had managed to do well against it. However, Dan started to spectate my game and said “That Blitzcrank is diamond, wtf?” Gulp.
I was 7-7, which isn’t a great score in my book, but I was improving from 3-7! We were chasing down Blitzcrank. He ran all over through our jungle and got away. I started to recall only to be grabbed by Blitz through a blind wall and pulverized by Alistar. 7-8. Blitzcrank wrote “so easy”. You could physically see the blood pumping through my veins when he wrote that. You dare to mock the Kog? Have you not seen Kog’Maw? He’s literally a monster! I wanted to write “the only difference between you and me is I have a late game.” I refrained. Instead I wrote it with my unofficial penta kill.
I went from 7-8 to 18-9. I got so nasty. I just sat back, let the tanks tank and I just blew kids up. Blitz tried to ignore the fight and just run for me. I cut him so hard that he just turned to run. We cleaned up their team, took Baron for free, and just wrecked their base. After I killed Blitz again I wrote “gg so easy” much to the enemy team’s dismay. I really loved the threats of getting reported.
My biggest problem with this game was when Blitz flashed to grab me and Nunu said “you should be staying away from him.” Herp, derp, what the heck do you think I was doing? If he has to burn Flash to get me I’m obviously not out of position, I just can’t do anything against that as Kog when my Flash is down. He didn’t think about the fact that he only left lane after I got back to it. Also, when I got dove under tower from behind by Alistar and Blitz I asked Nunu to sit on my hip and stop recalling when I was getting back to lane and he just responded “no”. Yep, he’s a 900 elo Nunu. You don’t play Nunu because Ice Blast is a fun spell. You don’t play Nunu to consume creeps. You play Nunu so that you can put Blood Boil on your ADC, and then protect them and peel for them and then wreck late game. This Nunu thought that it came for free. Instead I had to do all the work and it just bugged the crap out of me.
GG, was a lot of work.
