    Gotta at least hit my gold this season.

    Was placed silver in solo and bronze in flex, just got up to silver flex. Amu jungle is rockin' it!

    ATM I find flex a little more stable than solo but I dance between both. I was focusing on flex because I wanted to get out of bronze.

    stable in what sense? you feel you're placed with a group of players with lower variation in their mmr, or..?

    I've seen less of the "absolute win" atm. It snowballs at a point in the game but rarely have I felt we will win or lose no matter what, early in the game. That said my sample size is small so I could just have been lucky in the games I have played.

    If you don't have good peel playing ADC is just dreadful. Had a game where I was smashing with Corki early / mid game but late game my team just couldn't keep them off me.

    I play jungle tanks or support primarily and found as long as I keep my ADC alive we usually win. <3

    Just fast tracked in soloq from S5 to S3 in 1 promo, still higher MMR than average.

    Halfway through silver 1 in soloq, my MMR is high enough that I am being grouped with golds who we're plat last season.

    Had a 9 game winning streak before I tanked it myself by picking Ekko jungle (which I had zero experience with) but then recovered with a win before bed. My tried and true practice of keeping the ADC alive by playing tanky peel jungle / support is working well.

    After I hit gold I will go back to flex que and see how that goes.

    I went on tilt last night, dropped down to S1 - 0 LP.

    Tonight I am playing Shyv again, holy shit why don't I just always play her jungle?

    She's a beast AND tanky AND farms well.

    I was doing solo dragons at lvl 4-5 every time. The second I saw enemy jungle ganking top I would just pop in and blow it up.

    i think vi can do that too right now

    seems like solo'ing drag is pretty easy with the strongest jg's on this patch

    i didnt play yesterday but today im doing pretty well. this last game went awfully bc my adc kept running into blitz hooks even when we had 20 minions around, and our top and mid both suicided a bunch & lost their lanes super hard as well, but other than that game it's all been swell

    in gold 4 promos now

    seems a lot easier to climb this season than last. no doubt im a lot better than i was, but i have trouble believing that's all it is. maybe the increased noise from ppl splitting for flex q made it easier?

    It's usually easier to climb early in the season. I remember hitting plat early last season fairly easily before I went full tilt / troll.

    o rlly? i guess there's fewer people around at higher elos so you get more opportunities to play w/ higher elo ppl and earn more lp if u beat them? .. or something?
