On Saturday, I decided to experiment with Veigar in PvP in mid-lane. It didn’t go well, but I also feel like I didn’t get the best representation of it because I was facing Garen, who isn’t supposed to be a mid-laner. And also, I was following a guide online for his masteries which advised not to take Thunderlord’s Blessing as his keystone, which I think is what I had before. I think if I had that, I would have done better, so I’ll be changing that back. (Someone else in the game commented on it too. Rather rudely. They were kind of a dick.)
Aside from that, I focused on increasing my mastery levels for all the champions who were close to their next level. That was Janna, Anivia, and Morgana. I knew there was no chance of me getting enough IP to buy another champion (that I actually want) by the deadline, considering that these were the last two days, but I still wanted a goal, so there you go.
My game with Morgana went very well; I got an A- and my teammates were so appreciative! I certainly didn’t carry the whole game but I did carry my lane. (Not really sure what our ADC was doing, but they were a couple levels behind me all game.)
And the rest of my games went terribly! Well not really, I actually got an A with Janna, but the game didn’t meet my goal because I died 8 times.
I had a similar situation with Maokai – I died 9 times but got an A.
So yeah, I understand that my goal is kind of dumb and I should have probably used LOL’s grading system, as I’ve said before, but it’s too late now. So my numbers may end up looking worse than they maybe should, but oh well. (I guess I’ll find out in like half an hour, considering that I need to finish this project in its entirety tonight.)
Sunday was about trying to improve those numbers by playing games exclusively with Sona and Soraka.
That did not go so well. If anything, it just made it worse. Maybe I was just having an off day, I don’t know, but even in the games I did well in, I usually died more than 5 times.
I also ended up having to play a game as mid-laner because that’s what I got filled into. I played Lux, who is my best mid-lane champion, and I did well but not well enough. I was SO close to only dying 5 times though. Sooooo close.
Also, I’m pretty sure someone called me a cunt in one of my games as Sona because they felt I had stolen their kill (it was an accident, obviously; I was mostly just using whatever abilities I could to protect THEM – we were losing and people were dropping like flies). I had already apologized twice, too. I have a language filter on (although I’m pretty sure I didn’t always), so it could have been another four-letter bad word, but that’s my guess.
And then I did the dumbest thing imaginable, which was that I took pictures of our pets, because they were being adorable, and sent them to my boyfriend, without checking to see what was in the background. Which was my computer, with the LOL client open.
So I did what anyone would do in that situation and I tried to draw all over the pictures, hoping that the version I already sent him would somehow change its appearance. It did not; it just sent again, making things even weirder.
So I did what anyone would do in that situation and I sent him 30 GIFs of random things and then told him not to scroll up under any circumstances.
HONESTLY, I make it this far, THIS FAR, to the very last day, and then I do THAT.
I just…I’m impressed, truthfully.
So all in all, not the best last day, but not the worst either. I didn’t cry! So there’s that.
Now to put all the finishing touches on the blog and that’s a wrap!
