I am traveling to PAX this week, so I will not have much time to League, but rest assured, I will be continuing the adventure into ranked.
good luck brosky

Time to necro my own thread.

I've finally had time to play a good number of ranked matches. Right now my Elo is sitting at around 800. Was as low as 700, but I have been learning jungle and as I get a hang of it, I am seeing a steady increase in wins. Not sure why it took so long, but I have discovered a love for Xin Zhao.

Since it's New Years, I'm gonna put my 2013 goal of getting 100 ranked wins next year in writing so I can come back next year and be embarrassed if I don't make it.

Haha, I just checked you on LoLking a little while ago. I was like "Why Bazner no play no more?" Glad to see you're back!

I had a second kid and it really made it hard to play ranked until he was a bit older. He's older, so now more ranked is being played.

Cute fake story. But here's what happens in reality - the smurf would have either ignored what you said and continue to rage because he deems you inferior, or rage even harder and make matters worse.

I love how no one outside of riot employees insist that "setting a good example" works. It doesn't. I have tried countless times, only to get shot down by a teenager with anger issues. They always ignore any advice or suggestions I make or flame me in return. I have had at least 30 such instances in the same number of situations.

Perhaps I'm just not lucky enough to get paired with mature teammates. Oh well.
