I think it's great you removed Riot from your name to get the raw experience.

We'll see if it sticks.

On a gameplay related note, just did a ranked duo where I played Leona. We clearly lost the lane phase, but managed to get together as a team around 15 minutes and turned the game around big-time and won. Getting good ward coverage and moving as a team proved to be way more important than the fed Katarina on the other team.
I'm confused.... didn't you used to be RiotBazner?

That's not true. Often you can turn someone like that around, or at least 50% of the time.

Imagine you have that guy in 1 out of 5 games and you can turn him around 50% of the time.

Now you are dealing with him in 1/10 games.

The other team has the same guy, but may not be turning him around. This is going to potentially give your 1 extra win out of 10. Over the long run that is absolutely going to raise your Elo.

I did not find it made a huge difference.

I am still him, I just changed my in-game name, which changes the forum name as well. I like to redefine myself once in a while, it's liberating.

tl;dr new year, new name.

It does, I lost to mspudding and was upset how a rioter would ruin my game.
She didn't even apologize for killing me in lane and was a bad example.

(I'm obviously joking)

Sadly communication isn't as important as you might think it is in my opinion, you can put down as many wards and pings,even tell another player how to build and counter for their champ and lane, but in most cases players that would be guided are usually set in their own mind. I experience this every day, last season I won around 1200 ranked 5v5 and this season I'm around 250-300 wins so far. In season 2 I didn't manage to get 1200+ elo, same thing is happening in season 3, there are just too many people set in their own minds. I recently had a match against 5 ad champs, told my team to buy thornmail and none of them did. Then we lost. Some purposely ignore good advice to ruin your matches and time, and some are just too stubborn..
