Yesterday was a good day. I needed that.
I played 4 PvP games, 3 of which were with Soraka because I was trying to change my profile background to display Soraka and not fucking Ahri, so I could take a screenshot of it for the header of this site. (The other one was with Sona. It was okay.)
And all three went very well! I got an A in the first one, and TWO S’s! In a row! On the same day!
The first one was more due to our ADC, who was amazing, but the second one was totally mostly me.
So because of that, I got another mastery 6 token (and nothing for the second one, boo). So I was excited that I’d be getting my mastery 6 on Soraka before the deadline, but then it turns out that you actually also need 500 blue essence? They never tell you that, like ANYWHERE. So not fair!
And the only way to get blue essence that I know of is by disenchanting champion shards.
You can apparently buy a champion shard with IP from the store, but it’s something like 1700, and that is too many. So I’ll just…wait, I guess. Eventually I’ll get more chests, and eventually one will contain a champion shard I don’t want that I can disenchant.
It’s annoying to me that you can only earn 1 chest per champion, and I feel like that’s not how things should be. Especially since you need multiples of everything to actually do something with the things you get in the chest.
In other news, I played Veigar in a bot game just to try to get more assists for an Order vs. Chaos mission that I only had 40 minutes left for, and I forgot how fun he is! Maybe I’ll try playing him in a PvP game sometime soon.
And speaking of champions I never play anymore but used to play all the time,
apparently Evelynn is getting a revamp of some sort in the relatively near future! She was an early love of mine, but no one ever plays her and I feel like I shouldn’t. I don’t believe that players have to ‘stick to the meta’, but I feel like I have to because I’m not that good and I don’t want people to yell at me.
I might use one of my 3 refunds on Annie, because I never play her, don’t enjoy her and she doesn’t really serve a need on my roster that isn’t also served by another champion I like better. There are other champions I never play, but I feel like I need them because they are the only champions I have of their type. They’re just-in-case champions. Annie was only 450 IP, but right now that could be the difference between getting Maokai by the deadline or not, and I’d really like to.
It might turn out to be a big mistake, like Ahri, but at least he would also be serving a unique need on my roster that I don’t currently have (tanky support).
I don’t know, we’ll see how much IP I can gather in the next couple of days I guess.
There are still 5 days to get caught, but as of now, I’ve officially gotten away with this. I knew that my boyfriend didn’t possibly know exactly what I was doing, but a few months ago I was pretty sure he was onto me due to me slipping up various times. (I got better at that.) But earlier he was saying how I just hate the game so much and every time he plays he feels like he’s doing something bad, which is really sad and I don’t want him to feel that way but JOKE’S ON YOU BABE…just you wait. JUST YOU WAIT and you’ll see!
Also, side note….Festival Queen Anivia is going on sale in late July. Damn it. (Worth it, though.)
Games played: 6
% of PvP games that meet goal: 100% (but there were only 4, and 3 were with Soraka)
Champions played: Soraka, Sona, Veigar
Death snack of the day: Doritos

Evelynn is pretty good actually, you may not see her often because it’s a jungler. But she is in an average shape now and if you master her you can do very well on her. Of course she’s a jungler and I don’t think that your strongest point, but just saying. Also don’t feel bad about not playing jungle well. I’ve been playing LOL since it’s beta release (9 year ago? something like that) and I still suck at it, apparently it’s just not my thing.
First of all, this is my first time commenting and I have to say that I really love your blog. I’ve been reading it over the past couple of days and your writing style is really enjoyable! It’s also nice to see your experience, and since I’ve only really been playing LoL actively since the end of last year I can relate to a lot of things (especially the fear of jungling XD).
I wanted to say that I also was thinking about refunding Annie. Obviously I didn’t have any time constraints like you had to buy other champions, but I just felt like I never played them and it wasn’t really worth it. A friend of mine advised against it, saying that I should probably keep onto the refunds for things bought with rp, so I didn’t in the end. Because I felt kinda bad about it, I decided to play a bit more Annie from that point onward and at some point it really clicked and I started enjoying playing her a lot! So yeah, not saying she will definitely be your cup of tea, because obviously everybody’s tastes are different, but if you haven’t you might want to try her out a bit more, because for me it took a while to start liking her too 🙂
I’m glad that someone else feels that way about Annie! I felt kind of weird about it because everyone seems to love her. But yeah I may try her because it was recommended to me to use her to improve in mid-lane, and also my boyfriend gifted me a mystery skin and it turned out to be Frostfire Annie -____- I totally agree that you should save the refunds for RP things though because you only get 3 for LIFE! I thought it was like 3 per year or something!
Thanks so much for reading and I hope you continue to enjoy 🙂
