If you know me at all ingame, you know that I despise ranked, especially solo queue. The rage and mandatory stress involved (for me personally at least) in it just makes it not at all worth it for me. Don't get me wrong, I like to win, but I don't like the permanence of the visible stats of my losses due to bad players and stupid shit. The fact that in solo queue, you have to basically ass-kiss the badkids all day long and manipulate them into doing what you want instead of just saying what is really on your mind pisses me off immensely.
"You've already been fucking ganked by Udyr 3 times and you SERIOUSLY didnt by a goddamn ward? For the love of god, just please castrate yourself so your stupidity does not get transferred to the future of the human race."
"Hey, I see you've been having some troubles with udyr down bot. You might have better luck if, when you go back next, to buy a ward and place it in the bush near the river. You can see him coming that way! ^.^"
Shit makes me puke.
Anyway, For this reason, I don't play ranked... like.. ever. I've lost over 100 Elo from Elo decay, which is annoying and pisses me off because I'm actually much higher and much better than my ratings say.
In spite of all this, I managed to get to over 1400 in all 3 areas today. Made me smile. I had been in 5v5 solo and premade for a while, but I never really cared for 3s. Recently, I've played several games on ranked 3s with Trundle. Needless to say, he OWNS that map. The lack of blue is annoying, but if you can deal with early mana, he mops that map up.
