ok then - so did nothing but ranked tonight with karl. We had less than good results, but it didn't really impact our lp all that much. I pay a lot of attention to patterns, but I don't quite know what to make of them yet. I've been paying attention to how my ranked games go. Let me provide some data and see if anyone has some thoughts.
I play solo ranked - I win more than I lose. I think I win 2 games then lose 1, then win 3 games then lose 1. That seems to be the pattern. I've maybe done like 20 games solo at this point. I request any specific role based on what I'm into at the time. Played some mid, adc, top, support and jungle. Done it all. Currently I request adc every game.
Duoing with bryff. I win 2 games and lose 1. Then win 2 games and lose 1. That seems to be a pretty consistent pattern over 10-12 games or. Variables - I req adc every game and pretty much always get it. We want to put bryff at mid, but he's often at the bot of the queue, which means he has to do something else. Sometimes support, etc. Games are either challenging or complete and absolute stomps with me leading the way - these are games where I hit 16/1/10 as adc - seems pretty consistent. Bryff is silver 3
duoing with sharp. I win 3 games and lose 1. Then win 3 games and lose 1. Pretty consistent after 12 games or so. I call adc and sharp chooses to support. We've had the most success here of anywhere. Feel pretty confident I could adv in any rank with sharpy. Games are not as lopsided than as with Bryff, but close. I can still stomp pretty hard, but its not as "wow these guys are awful" than as with bryff. Sharpy is silver 3.
duoing with karl. I win 1 game and lose 3. Then win 1 game and lose 2. Can't remember previous duos with him, but I'm pretty sure we lost. Karl we always try to put at jungle. If needed, karl will play support, but I don't think he was setup to do that at all tonight anyway (eg someone else called support). Noticed us having a particularly high number of shittards on our team tonight. At least 3 games where I tore things up in my role and we lose because of incompetence in other lanes. karl is silver 4.
duoing with hedgie. Only played 1 game. We won, but it was god awful painful for both of us. Hedgie got like 10 lp and I got 20-28 ish. Can't remember much else. I think hedgie is higher ranked than me currently (silver 1 maybe?)
I'm currently silver 3.
Other random details - if I'm soloing, I can't guarantee adc. If I duo, 95% of the time now I'm 1st pick and can dictate that i'm adc. Other note - if I'm 1st pick, whoever I'm duoing with seems to always be last pick.
Trends I've noticed. Obv, I do best with sharpy. then with bryff, then with karl. Sharpy chooses to go support for me (even though I'm cool w whatever she wants to do). Bryff prefers mid. Karl prefers jungle. It's not a ton of data, but that's the current trend.
Oh - also interesting note. I'd get 30 lp for a win with karl and then lose like 14 lp if we lose the game. So, we actually stayed pretty close to where we started the night as losses didn't hurt our lp as much as wins helped us. Karl and I both lose and gain about the same amt of lp for wins and loses.
