So - my ranked games from last night. I spent some time in 2 of the 3 games managing my team. By that, I mean helping folks untilt. I do have a nice advantage here as I have been that tilted guy many times, so I get it. Anyway, in 1 game, we had a really trollish top laner. Goes liss top with ignite. The enemy team gets both trist/yasuo. Anyway, our jungler ganks for top lane and takes a few cs. As a result, this liss player (I think this liss is actually just a lousy player tbh) over extends, dies several times, runs her mouth in chat, and is generally a shite. Anyway, the liss keeps feeding and doing nothing useful for the team resulting in 4v5 on every team fight. But my jungler can't help himself - he keeps going on and on with liss (I muted her when it was clear she was going to be a nuisance and encouraged everyone else to do the same). Eventually I call out my jungler and put it clearly that him going on and on with her is hurting our team and distracting everyone. Please mute now and be done with. He apologizes and mutes her. We go on to beat a late game team, that has baron buff, 4v5, by out playing them.
I was 0/1 in my series and got into that game with a trolly POS. I helped calm folks down, played best (worked super hard) to help win that game. Honestly, I think if the lee kept talking w/ Liss, we would have lost that game. Anyway, just says a bit about being positive and helping people keep from tilting. I was super happy getting a win on that game though. Extremely difficult, but a win that put me to 1/1 in my series. Not at all surprised to check that liss's stats and see her at 3/7 for last 10 games in ranked.
Anyway, we win the next 2 games due to surrenders (I go 0/1/10 and 1/2/17 as janna respectively). Both pretty solid wins.
So, I'm super happy, but my last game is stuck at the waiting for stats screen (the game I would have promoted on). Next thing i know, hedgie pm's me and says that he thinks my game may have been drop hacked as he can't see the stats. I whinged for a bit on stream and was pulling my replays to open a ticket with riot (that probably would have gone no where). I queue up for another game and play a fairly trolly zilean as I'm done w/ ranked, relaxing, and starting to tilt a bit due to the drop hack bit. Well, my normal game ends and I'm greeted with the "congrats you've been promoted to plat" message. Turns out the servers where just slow or w/e and there was no drop hack. So, I go back to being happy and play a bit better.
Side note- hedgie put in some time on gnar. Feeling good about him now?
