Lately I've just been playing solo normals. I almost always get support, but this match someone picked Janna before I could pick and I decided to play some Swain (One of my first major champions), though I hadn't played him in a while.
In the loading screen I see a LB on the other team, and once the game starts I apologize to my team in case I get dominated. There aren't any level 1 teamfights, but our jungle Twitch needed a hard leash and I get into mid lane later than LB.
I didn't notice that LB was level 2 while I was still level 1, and I get burst down to 25% while she only took one of my E's.Ouch. I use my potions and try to farm safely. Around level 5 we traded again, but our jungle twitch showed up and made LB flash. I'm at around 50% and LB at 75% or so.
Just a bit after, at level 6, I catch LB with nevermore and decide to commit. My flash was up while hers was still down, and ended up killing her with the help of ignite.
Heck freaking yes. I went back, bought an early negatron and null-magic mantle for mercs.
I'm pretty sure she noticed because she didn't try harassing me nearly as much once I got back. I then did whatever I wanted with the lane, such as pushing it to go help top, and we eventually won.
Thought I was going to get dominated by a Leblanc mid as Swain, but ended up getting the first kill and some MR and had the easiest time ever.
