I have not had a 5v5 game yet where it was a fair game, ei. all 5 on each side were there the whole game.
Is this what I have to look forward to for the last 10 levels till 30 or is this something new?
I will admit I have only been playing since late November so I really don't know what to expect as I get higher in levels but seriously.
Trying to learn to play well is pretty rough when most games are uneven.
The whole reason I am even posting this is the last game myself Cho'gath, and the other teammate Jax held off 5 people for 26 minutes and was only behind in kills by 8. Not too bad really but if people had stayed in the game we might have won.
So I guess my real question is, will this be as painful for the last 10 levels and is it that way at 30?
