Qualifying Match 1: DEFEAT
Saturday 09, September 2017.
I picked Artio Support (luckily they didn't ban her), while my friend picked Cernunnos ADC.
We didn't start well in lane, as I gave them First
Blood after a few minutes, but after I respawned,
the Ganesha was still there with low Health and we killed him with the help of our Ne Zha Jungle, making up for my mistake from earlier.
I started rotating after the enemy Support, so they
got 2 Kills on my teammates in Mid, even after I spammed some "Retreat Middle lane" and "Enemy Missing Left" before I recalled in the Duo lane.
My Zhong Kui was quite good so we did some nice plays in Mid against Chronos and Ganesha and I did a great Gank in the Solo lane, saving my Skadi from Arachne and killing Bellona.
But after that Ne Zha started feeding, continuing to
go in 1v3 and bming, while Skadi decided to go AFK, staring at a wall in base. We surrended at 19 minutes, yay.
I ended with 3 Kills/3 Deaths/4 Assists, not a terrible performance considering that I partecipated in 7 of the 11 total Kills of my team and I also stole the Gold Fury charging inside the enemy team, but I did some stupid actions in the Early-Game.
Cernunnos (my friend) died a few times, in 1v1 against Hou Yi and two times trying to defend
the Middle lane when we were 4v5, ending with
1 Kill/3 Deaths/0 Assists, but he didn't play badly. The enemy ADC out-rotated him successfully Ganking in Mid a few times though.
I have to say that losing our first game because of toxic and bad teammates has been pretty frustrating.
Qualifying Match 2: DEFEAT
Monday 11, September 2017.
I picked Ganesha Support, while my friend picked Anhur ADC. This time they banned Artio, and fun fact, our teammate banned Skadi first, when my friend had selected her in the Planning Phase, lol.
This game started amazingly, at 4-5 minutes we had 2 Kills in the Solo lane and we killed Athena thanks to a nice Impale and Turn of Fate combo. We stayed in lane to try kill Medusa, but I ****ed up and died to
We kept doing well in Mid with me and Janus hitting our abilities and Ravana successfully Diving under Tower Sol and Mercury, plus one or two good Ganks from Erlang Shen. Meanwhile, Anhur out-played Medusa in Left lane, with an awesome play.
In the Mid/Late-Game everything went wrong. Janus started killing himself several times wasting his
Portal, Ravana started thinking to be immortal and went inside the enemy team every time, while I was following and trusting him. He has led me to die like 4 times. Erlang Shen lost his common sense, while
Mercury and Sol came online and Chronos began to come in Middle lane.
In the Late-Game they destroyed us, we didn't win a single Team Fight, and we hadn't Objectives and Map control, thanks to Ravana and Janus ending with 0 Wards placed. Me, Anhur and Erlang Shen died again and again trying to do something. Surrended at 31 minutes of agony.
I ended with a splendid 0 Kills/8 Deaths/13 Assists, with 3 Bestowed Kills. At least I partecipated in 3/4 of my team's total Kills, but I shouldn't have trusted my teammates and tried to save them against that one-shotting Mercury. I should have just turn the heels and run for my life most of the times, even if it goes against my principles, lol.
My friend ended with 4 Kills/6 Deaths/3 Assists. He played well in his lane, always defeating Medusa in 1v1, and dying mostly in that terrible Late-Game. But he had less Total Damage than me and the second lowest Total Damage of the lobby, right after
Athena; I don't know exactly why, but probably because the Mercury focused and killed him really fast in every Team Fight.
Guess this wasn't my best game ever, but it was
my first time using Ganesha in a week. And my teammates did their part in losing this **** match.
