When you play League of Legends teams normally consist of five players each. If you have three friends that want to play, plus yourself, Reggie Miller would say that you have four people. This means that you get stuck with what I habitually call a “random fifth” player. This game, however, our team mate played as the fish.
I’m not a fan of the fish. I feel as though she doesn’t bring enough to bottom lane. Her crowd-control ability is a skill-shot with a very large cooldown. Her heal and harass are both underwhelming. Her ultimate is slow-moving and easily avoidable. However, SirPwntheGreat showed me that one of Nami’s emotes makes fireworks, which I thought was very cool. I had started liking her more already.
I made a mistake very early in this game. I got condemned just after using Arcane Shift. I probably shouldn’t have stuck my neck out as far as I did, and I was only level two. Vayne threw her ignite down on me, but I used Cleanse to remove the true damage and flashed into the bushes. Both Janna and Vayne tried to pursue me. I knew when they got there that my life would be over. It was in this moment that all hope was lost.
That’s me at 98 health facing a Vayne with a Janna shield, and way out of position just before I used Cleanse and Flash. In a panic I just turned to fight. That random fish knew exactly what to do. She’s probably bailed over-confident Ezreal’s like myself out of situations like this thousands of times. Instead of me looking like First Blood, bottom lane looking like this:
Thank you fish. You really lived up to your name that game. I paused momentarily after that double kill to write “I love you forever now” to which the fish responded with “I love me too.”
I honestly only buy Frozen Fist and Static Shiv because I love the on-hit stuff. I just make sparks and ice as often as possible before the fun items get nerfed.
