Wow you must have a stickler of a girlfriend if that's the reason for you not being able to play, haha.

Lost an hour long game last night. Was playing with a my brother (lvl 30), cousin (lvl 23), and cousin's friend (lvl 19) and a random who was lvl 27. Wanted to try Nunu jungle, but other team ended up not having a jungler. Teams were:

Nunu (me), Jayce (cousin's friend - who is quite bad), Twisted Fate (cousin), Graves (brother), Teemo (random).

vs.

Talon, Darius, Katarina, Ezreal, Jax

Their Katarina and Ezreal were both terrible, but Jax and Talon carried their team hard. When the game ended we had 60+ kills compared to their high 40s. Yet we didn't kill a single inhib all game. Was so so frustrating to play, especially as Nunu who can't really turn the game around with bad players on our team unless they just sit around in his ult for a while. Ended up losing when 3 of our team got caught by 4 of theirs in a 3 for 0. Sigh.

The more you play the more you will realize how important objectives are.

Placed into Silver 4 division over the weekend. Glad I didn't end up in Bronze. Won a majority of my ranked games when I played ADC as Varus which is strange since I don't ADC that often in Normals.

Also, got Zac over the weekend. He is pretty fun to play. Big disruption effects in team fights and his ganks are pretty good as well.

Still haven't done any ranked matches at all. I don't see the benefit, and there are rumors that the douche ratio is much worse in ranked games.

Played with Aileron last night. Was fun playing with him, learned some good tips as well. Mainly played support and helped him carry

We could get a 5 person AO team up and running potentially based on the people who have replied in the thread.

@Descalzo, ranked isn't for everyone I guess. Some people, myself included, like the games to have a competitive flair to them and have the ability to see how we rank up versus others. Normals are good for trying out new strategies or getting used to a new champion, but I like doing ranked to give myself a good challenge versus people around my skill level.

It's high regardless. I don't care for normals because people will troll with a greater frequency and some don't care about winning, which I do. You can always mute other players.
