So, last year was pretty devastating to my original League of Legends account. The circumstances which arrived me to my placements matches were not by coincidence. All done in one night; fate served me with an awe-full Bronze 4 ranking. I had practically given up on grinding out that terrible dredge after experiencing a full blown league tilt. I literally saw only negativity when playing by observing myself and my team with zero motivation. Blaming an entire loss on others or taking the blame myself it didn’t seem to matter much. It wasn’t even fair to be playing the game with trolls or afk ratios that were a quarter of all my ranked games being trolled or afk. I felt a hopeless despair and began playing other games. I also lost interest in this blog for quite a while.

I did begin to pick up league again towards the end of the season and safely climbed to Bronze 1 with 99 points the moment the season had ended. Needing only 1 win to make silver at that. Of course I made Silver but alas the season has already begun again. Here I am reliving a similar situation although for my own sanity it seems it would slightly improve. Although, my placement matches alone were tragedy and I actually had two afk matches and two trolled matches. The foreboding sense of bad luck… I somehow ended up in Bronze 3. Showing that even with the efforts of countless hours I still get the shaft. Only just starting the season a few months ago I have finally made it to Bronze 2 series. What a joy.

This season I’m excited to be able to pick my roles. I am looking forward to climbing out of bronze once again and setting my sights on Gold 5 as my marker. I am banking on my champion pool for jungle and support. Alternatively, I have been maining Teemo top lane. I am having the worst luck with picking teemo bc I tend to get trolled by teammates who have lost morale or faith in my ability to perform by picking teemo. I have had a few bad games as well just entirely my fault for the enemy onslaught. It is nerve wrecking to experience but I try my best to just view it as a learning experience.

The rate at which I climbed from the over encumbered pits of elo hell was so very rapid, having only taken place in about 4 weeks(this is very short for me since I rarely got to play more than one game a day except on the weekends), that I  would like to write about and document the experience this season. Restraining from making negative posts I think I will be able to reach my before-mentioned goal of gold 5 ranking.
