SO dodging costs lp now?
As expected, that team flopped BUUUTTT my next game I got more lp than I lost, and damn it was fine team to boot.
Also thanks to a fid gank at level 4, and again at my 9 (he was 8) I was bale to get ahead of yorick enough to win despite the counter. I just made sure to stay equal or above cs til I could get those ganks and then boom "rock solid". He still had me worried a few times though for sure, being that yorick is really strong counter to malph.
had my adc runes (8atk, 6% lifesteal and armor+mr/lvl) and my support masteries. Started flask, ward, and a red pot. then got scepter, mana charm, and two beads. Finished my tiamat, got boots of speed, and finished my chalice. Finished hydra, then got warmogs and then we were just rolling forward at that point.
And then I go and lose against gp as Xin *poker face*
We lost hard though cause bot fed hard(our support fiddle *****ed and didnt buy wards, then just built straight ap)
I lost my lane so hard though cause I underestimated minions and yeah went south from there.

Like I know you mean that as long as the team can do their parts adequately, it can be carried. Just saying.
On topic, I just had a game as lulu. Team was doing stupid well, we were 14-8 up a dragon and two towers, also stole their blue. Kept it up to having two inhibs down.
Then they started throwing. I had to yell in my little girl voice
Lulu: Stop chasing Kass, just peel for ashe **** that guy really, we're throwing here.
Wukong: but he had 10 hp or so
Lulu: I'D RATHER WE GET 4 KILLS AND MAYBE LOSE 1 PERSON THAN PLAY GRAB ASS WITH KASS WHILE WW AND VAYNE CHEW ON ME AND ASHE
Ashe: yeah please listen to the midget
They did, and we won the next team fight immediately. Kass lived, janna lived(barely) we lost lux and ashe had to back, kass tried to get to base but my w on udyr made him fly to their exposed nexus, we won right then.
Slight off topic, but do you guys know of any ways to earn RP other than through referrals? The money itself isn't a problem for me, but I feel like slapping myself for shelving out money just for a skin (if they actively changed gameplay that'd be different). Anyway, is there a survey site or something like Swagbucks where you can redeem RP as a reward? I heard there was a credit card or something that was showing on the Internationals Tournament as a commercial, but I didn't see the details.
The gold players i got teamed up with are better as in knowing how the game works and play accordingly, even if they are not individually high skilled its the map awareness and teamplay that made those gold matches fun. ( and i could carry with easy because of this )
As said before, LoL is not a 1vs5 game. Sometimes when you get a small advantange you snowball and carry even though your team is retarded. But if the other team realizes who is the "carry" they will hunt them down so they win easily.
If i have a team that listne after a lane is shut down, i make perma ganks on that lane to shut it down and open up a window to win the game.
According to you, i should be in diamond...
Gold of today is the silver of 3-4 months ago.
I'd say gold players are only a little bit better than silvers, it's definitely not in a class of its own.
For those of you who haven't seen it, this is the new Sivir.
