Jesus, I still can't believe how hard some people can throw.
Game 8. Swain - 7/5/12 - Overall this game went better than I could've expected, considering how it went mid game. So first, to start off the epic story of a 1.3k Elo team, I'll give you team comps.
We have Swain, Lee Sin, Udyr, Caitlyn, and Sona. Pretty ****ing good peels for the Caitlyn, so we should be good. Enemy team has Hecarim, Rengar, Kayle, Riven, and Akali. Oh ****, now we look even better. They have a silly ass team comp for late game, so we should be good if we can just get Caitlyn and myself farmed.
All starts off well. I (mistakenly) assume Lee Sin is the jungler, and it looks like we're invading. So we walk over to their wraiths, I snare Akali, and we get a good start for me. She had to B, so I got a faster level 2. I dominate my lane, despite Riot's servers being laggy as ****. Akali has 45 CS at 18 minutes. I've got like 150~. Not great, but good enough. Bottom lane gets a good start, with Cait picking up something like 4 kills.
And then it starts. Lee Sin gives Riven and Hecarim (jungling) 4 kills top lane. Cait and Sona give Rengar something like 7-8 kills. Akali is somehow still being relevant despite having a total of 85 CS in a 42 minute game (to my 323, rofl), simply because of the kills my team gave her. I get caught once or twice, team proceeds to get caught after. Eventually we get to about 30 minutes in, 2 inhibs down, and I believe they took baron (not sure). We turtle for 5 minutes and get myself and Cait super farmed (250 above Akali for myself, and like 100-150 above their bot lane for Cait). We win in a straight up 5v5 now.
Our mid inhib respawns. And the game turns drastically. They come in and engage on us. Sona lands a nasty ult on four, I get in all of them and do massive damage, and Udyr/Lee peel for Caitlyn really well. We win, five for none, with most of our health. Game's looking great at this point. I defend base while my team goes and takes baron. Game is all but won at this point.
We turtle it out for a bit longer, get both our inhibs up and just play it super safe. We catch two, push and get an inhib. Baron respawns, my team pushes out to take it, Hecarim tries to BD. I stay back and keep our inhibs up. Team gets baron, I push off Hecarim. They catch a couple, and we push to win.
Win. 1334 Elo.
