Played a total of 3 ranked matches last night and went 1-2 (wins-losses). The first match I got Kensei (who’s basically an insta GG when I play him usually in duo q) but this time I was solo. I would point out a name here because he is an amateur pro who has played in the VPL already and has played competitively in the past.
The second match even though I was being contested in my jungle by 3 people while everyone else in my team was in top for no reason (didn’t even take turret) but we won anyways because when I came online I CAME ONLINE.
The third match it was a fair game and although I wish my allies would have drafted better, like no Churn top and something that can actually peel lol, it was fair enough. 16/9/10 Baron.
Now onto the first match. The guy decided to say “I can’t cap” even though he is a VG silver player who boosted himself all the way up there and decided to soloQ. I’ve already beat him in multiple occasions and my other allies were just “ok” from past experiences so I had my expectations way up there for our dear amateur pro. He proceeded to talk about how he was gonna troll if he didn’t get a different role. And then someone stepped up and was like “k have mid.” And then 5 minutes in the guy who gave the role (he’s an ok mid player) died and the amateur pro died twice. SAM VERSE CELESTE TOO LOL. The best part is that it didn’t really matter because I was rocking them but it felt like a 3v5 the entire time because the guy that decided to sub in as captain didn’t know how to Cruci and I would pick up a reflex block but i need 4 damage items since our amateur VG silver pro player can’t land a single shot, nor can he position his DD in the right place. We also fought in the enemy red buff area SO IT’S LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO MISS SAM’S M&V. But k I lose to my own teammates (the enemy team had some friends) all because my Sam thinks he’s the best.
And that’s the problem with NA pros. They aren’t good. I’m only VG bronze too and yeah sure I soloq which is basically gambling but that doesn’t matter because I’m VG bronze and not really a good player.
