I was so close to promotion I could almost taste it. I knew that if I won one more game I would be in my qualifier. However, it felt like everyone was trying to win this game. I always hate it when the other team tries to win. It really warps my chances at winning.
We’re pretty sure that Zed is the most broken champion in League of Legends right now. He farms so easily and so safely. His damage scaling is completely ridiculous. His mobility is insane. I feel bad for the other team when I get a Zed on my team. The best is when they talk trash after all they did was farm and press R on people. I remember good ol’ days in mid lane of out-playing my opponent before level six. The game has changed.
The fact that we won this game was nothing short of a miracle. The game went long enough for Zed and me to get to six items. Once that happened we were able to win some amazing team fights and push to win, despite being down in kills and being down almost double in assists.
In my first Promotion Series game I decided to go with Ezreal again. The Trinity Force felt really good on him. I was looking forward to giving it another go.
This win was mostly Sejuani’s fault. Sejuani and Shen were a duo queue. Shen ran Teleport. It was the nastiest combo you’ve ever seen. Sejuani ult would lock up a lane after they saw the Shen Teleport coming in. Then we would have 4-5 people standing in that lane raining on the enemy team’s parade. This was especially effective because Zyra and Caitlyn were just trying to push me under my turret. This resulted in them over-extending in lane. Sejuani would hit Caitlyn once and I’d watch her evaporate. I could hear QTpie in my head saying “DELETED”.
We were able to play relatively safe. Normally when your raid boss dies they will rage at the team and blame them for not doing what they were supposed to or something. When this Sejuani died I think they admitted that they were caught by the enemy team and apologized. 6-1, you’d better apologize! I just realized that the Shaco we had on our team in the game before was the Nocturne in this game. Small world! 21 minute wins are the way to go if you’re trying to rip through a Promotion Series!
This Janna was really great. I added him after the game just to tell him that he did a good job. You don’t get supports who are as competent as this one every day. It was a rare occasion. Thanks again, Bargaincrate.
