Finally, a very pleasant game. I can't even remember the last time I played one of those, at least not since I started to stay exclusively on solo queue. No trash talkers, no rudeness, no QQ, a cooperative team, opponents with a cooperative team. Great, great game. To top it all off, we won.

It started off really bad. I was playing LuxSquare Lux and I had to restart during loading because of a horrible connection. I'm glad a modem reboot took care of it. Was pretty bad for the opponent's TryndamereSquare Tryndamere as well, though, he wasn't as lucky as I. He got back in before we were at level 6, I got back in at two minutes.

The early game seemed very lopsided. We had taken down five of their turrets, leaving mid's middle turret alone standing, but had suffered more deaths as a team. We had only lost one turret and got too relaxed. Before we had realized it, they had taken down enough turrets to mirror our progress. The next few mintues were spent with neither team gaining ground on the other. People were getting picked off and team clashes would leave one or two champions standing to defend.

Eventually, though, my team scored a ace. Primarily because both our Dr. MundoSquare Dr. Mundo and our VladimirSquare Vladimir had Oracle's Elixir item Oracle's Elixirs to counteract their EvelynnSquare Evelynn where previously, our team would only have one and whoever carried it would get focused before Eve stepped in. We pushed through mid and destroyed that inhibitor. That was followed by the top inhibitor and, inevitably, we took down their last inhibitor and the game was all but finished.

I hadn't enjoyed a game that much in a long, long time.
