I did a solo queue normal draft after the horrendous Urgot game. I had ban, totally COULD NOT FIND KASSADIN FOR THE LIFE OF ME, missed my 3rd ban and I thought this was just gonna be another faceroll game.
I go Support because outside of bot games, I know I can support like a boss. Originally I went with Sona but my carry preferred Soraka so I switched. I’m really getting into play with Soraka and since her visual upgrade, I’m always so happy playing her.
Game starts, I’m with AD Teemo and we do pretty dece against Varus/Leona. Leona got some awesome jump-in’s and got a couple early kills on us. Ziggs kept on whining for blues and Amumu wouldn’t give them. I can’t really blame either. Ziggs was bad for blowing all his mana and Amumu was too reliant on the jungle buffs for himself. Luckily our Olaf top held his own against Riven (omigosh Champion skin!) and once the lane phase was over we rofl-stomped ‘em. Ziggs landed every ult, Teemo mushroomed everywhere, I kept up healing health/mana and my wards. Olaf could not be stopped with me feeding him mana/health.
I really needed a win like this. Where everything went RIGHT (Well mostly right, the early game was very inauspicious, ha)
I know I’m a great Support player. Very rarely do I have really bad, I-just-want-to-cry games when I play support. But I don’t want to only ever play Support. I want to be good at all roles. I play a decent APC and I pretty much own all the ADCs. I mained for 4 solid months as Urgot. Urgot! Every game. Every day. For like FOUR MONTHS. Mind you, this was almost two years ago. But still, I want to own with him again. Unfortunately, the current meta doesn’t seem to allow it.
I think, for now, I’m going to stick exclusively to mid, ADC or Support, mostly Support. The others will come in time.
Marviiiii. I still have yet to play with you Dx
But I can completely and utterly relate. Just change the names of the champs and you’ve got me. I played MF for free when I started on LoL, ended up buying her and rolled on with her for a decent chunk of leveling time. Stopped playing her for a bit when the meta shifted and she lost viability.
Lately I’ve gone support Janna after a few rounds of trying her AP mid at the end of season 1. I think I might have found my champ calling, but I’m still trying to figure out good positioning and timing and how to stop being so mana hungry, since I seem to be completely out just when my ADC needs it the most. Oops.
Do you tend to stick with the burst-y champs too? I haven’t tested them all yet, but during the all-free-to-play days in beta, I’ve noticed the ones I like enough to want to pick up in live LoL are kinda burst-y (omfg, Riven. Riven. Riven.)
btw, this is Steph, though I think you know me moreso as Rochelle from Achaea <3
