Okay so before I begin let me give you my ign:Nocturnal1401
Please check the last ranked match for 5v5 if you want to have a look at it.
Now I now the low tier ranked matches are pretty much crap. Not that people don’t know how to play, but the real issue is they don’t know how to draft.
So I was on a break for 3 months from vg as I had my college entrance exams but since now they are dealt with I said to myself “Hi 5v5 ranked came last update and I should give it a go”. But the naive me didn’t not know that not everyone watches VPL or vg youtubers like excoundrel and ttigers.
What I expected was that now that it has been 4 months since 5v5 came out, people might get what a specific role needs to do.
So the first two matches were literally the best matches in my VG history I ever has played. Can you imagine a whole team of unranked players co ordinating as if we were using voicechat and destroying the absolute hell out of the other team.
But this was all an illusion, the next match was a reminder to me that soloq rank is impossible. So the draft starts and the we get a go to ban a hero. I indicate that I will play WP joule top lane as a side pusher. The draft is about to end and we last pick baron. He indicates that he will go WP and tells me to go CP as we only had 1 mid lane CP damage dealer. I’m like alright, I will try to make it work.
The game starts and I’m up against a Celeste in top lane which was really weird and unexpected. I indicate baron to swap lanes with me but he ignores my pings. Meanwhile, I get my ass kicked by celeste.
I ping “I need help” but alas no one even visits my lane the entire game ( and no this not a exaggeration). I die and that when I look up the leader board to try counter build celeste and then I notice that baron went CP path. This is when I started tilting a lit bit.
Now the snowball kicks in, I was level 7 while celeste was level 11. I mean can you believe, a side laner having a higher level than his own jungler. This is when I started cursing myself to going along with the noob. I knew I should have cgossen the WP path but now I could not sell my items as my team was already behind and I could see a comeback.
I MEAN YOU ARE SHIT AT DRAFTING IF YOU LET THE ENEMY GET BOTH CELESTE AND SAMUEL AND DONT HAVE EVEN ONE GOOD PICK IN YOUR TEAM.
Never listen to your team I you feel confident in your knowledge of the game.
Note: I have been regular to the game updates and know what the meta is.
