LoL: Some losing streak stats

Defeat screen.It’s a lot of fun to go on big winning streaks in League of Legends. I’m sure it’s happened to most of you at some point. You know that feeling, where you just can’t seem to lose. You’re playing Katarina for the hell of it and going legendary, running AP Yi and somehow still pulling wins. It’s a great feeling, and I love writing about the stats in those crazy streaks.

Then we have the losing streaks. They are the complete and total opposite of fun. They are unfun. They are joyless. They can be so painful they’ll make you take a break from the game for a week at a time. I’m in such a losing streak, and though I’m not giving up the game, I thought it would be cool to post some stats about my latest big losing streak.

Let me start by saying that my teammates have not been holding up their end of the bargain. I know, everyone says that, but in most every game I’ve lost recently I’ve had a solid farm and in some cases a pretty decent score. Despite the facts, though, I’ve been losing a lot – I’m down from 75 games over .500 to just 64, all in the last four days. Like I said, it’s been rough. At one point I had lost eight in a row.

Here’s the stat list on my most recent 10:
Defeat: 0-3-0 Karthus
Defeat: 4-5-5 Tristana
Victory: 3-1-5 Tryndamere
Defeat: 5-5-6 Twisted Fate
Victory: 10-0-3 Kennen
Defeat: 4-1-1 Ashe
Defeat: 1-8-5 Soraka
Defeat: 5-0-4 Nidalee
Defeat: 0-1-0 Soraka
Defeat: 3-3-2 Singed

For the most part it’s not a bad spread of stats. Granted, that Soraka game was pathetic, but my deaths were situational, usually I was trying to save a teammate that had run off solo or attempting to get my team to commit (for some reason our Shen refused to taunt anyone unless he was directly on top of them). We were never grouped up so one person would get burnt and I would blow everything I had trying to keep that individual alive and have nothing left for the teamfights. It was a bad game.

The thing that really bothers me about this particular streak of losses is that my team tended to lose the game in the laning phase, before anything could actually happen. I was either stuck mid watching both of my side lanes feed or standing in a lane next to someone to whom I was typing furiously, begging them to play more conservatively.

Whatever the reasons, though, you have to take the good with the bad, especially if you’re going to solo queue. Here’s hoping things turn around soon.
