I know Quantic only had 1 lvl 30 account, but to get 2-0'd but Coast and Velocity is pretty funny. Kind of ingenious on Locodoco's part, as it was a win-win situation. That said, some of the decisions in their games were pretty bad, and it wasn't really a matter of runes or Masteries, but they can always blame them if someone asks them wtf happened, lol. Velocity didn't just beat them, they stomped them in the second game. Maybe they're a better team with Oddbro mid and the new ADC, but I don't know. This new Quantic team was supposedly practicing for months...lol

Just lost a throw of a game because our Nasus Jungle built CDR boots, BotRK, and had items for an IE, and STILL tried to play Frontline against a team with Kayle, Nidalee. Only after I asked him wtf his build was did he sell it for Thornmail, Aegis, and a Giant's Belt....wow, so useful at 40 minutes.
It wasn't like he was forced to Jungle with the champ he selected. He called jungle, and got it, and chose Nasus, only to build glasscanon. I don't even understand the logic behind building CDR boots if you use mana, UNLESS you're build mana items.

It isn't bad against Kayle, since she has hybrid damage. But I don't think she was building hybrid, so idk. I think it was a strategy against Ez or Yi, however, an early Thornmail is only useful on a tank in the early laning phase. You don't build it unless you have the items to back it up.
Nasus is a champ where you have no real mobility, so you have to get huge so you can just walk over people in team fights. I'm not even sure what building pure AD on him would accomplish, since he only has ONE skill that does meaningful physical damage, it has no scaling ratio, and that skill gets stronger as the game goes on even without building any AD at all. Just no logic to it whatever. AP Nasus would have been better.
seems like u're suffering a lot in bronze well at least u made it to bronze 1
I hit my Silver series once, and got slammed with the worst luck. I was on my crazy streak with Zac, winning around 15 in a row on mostly him. I even bought Jarvan and hadn't touched him since months ago when he was free. I was forced to Jungle, Zac was banned, and I wasn't having much success with Nocturne, so I went J4. I carried that game so damn hard. You can see what kind of luck I had, but once I hit my series, all trolls/flamers/afkers and only won my first and dropped three in a row. I didn't play as much ranked, fell back down to B2, got back up and now I'm just yoyo-ing.
lmao. get a duo partner for your series might help
Nah, duoing is generally a bad idea when trying to climb from my experience. I did help someone get Silver once, but that could just be luck.

So weird, I don't know if it's trolling or what, but of all of the Free World Championship Summoner Icons that I've seen, I've seen Gamania Bears more than anything else...wat

Fucking god, apparently Athene's, CDR Boots, Solari, and 40min Sightstone are all must-buy items for Sona instead of worthless shit like Pink Wards and Oracles! Who would have thought?!
We stretched that game until an hour, despite being schooled in the early game. Would have been over earlier if we were actually able to clear out wards...lol. I don't understand why Support players, much less someone who actually calls Support in Champ Select, don't understand what items they're supposed to buy. You ward, your item slots are for wards...nothing else...FUCK
Stop whining this is low elo, people don't buy wards. You gotta buy them.
I did, I always buy wards... but there's almost no point when the other Support has constant Oracles and ours has none. I must have mentioned pinking Baron and buying an Oracles half a dozen times, but it didn't matter, she didn't do it.
