    split push strats are tricky sometimes if you have 2 specialists on the team but IMO zag offers more teamfight contribution through most of the game than sylv in that comp. though I'd probably want you nearby to dip in and drop a silence (very hard counter to Li Ming going on a reset spree so can be a good idea to save it till someone dies to prevent it snowballing)
    basically from 10, group up with the team a bit but still push and stay with the team after 16 when you can spread vulnerability across the enemy team.

    Your zag should have higher hero damage if they were teamfighting, and higher siege if they weren't. Looking at the username I reckon they are probably young, and probably just wanted to siege but couldn't because you were doing that. clearly they aren't great at teamfighting with zag.

    Sonya died a lot but thats to be expected without a proper tank.

    I'm not a fan of split push sylvs that tunnel most of the time but in this case your sylv strategy was probably spot on and what won you the game

    Take a look at this screenshot from a match a week or 2 ago.

    The very next day I was told by a teammate that "Stitches has no damage"

    Valla is still very strong, her sustained damage output is sick.

    AA Valla with searing attacks is awesome at taking down the immortals on BoE map

    Getting abit sick of the trolls and the people that give up after first team fight loss.

    Got to rank 16 yesterday but now the losing streak has started since every game I've had one or the other.

    Though in one game we lost in draft since my team decided to insta-lock everything... Me as Johanna first pick into Zagara, Slyvanas, Nova and Gazlowe so yea... GG before it started against their balanced team

    Well done on the climb to 16. People can be frustrating but getting up to 16 suggests you are finding a way through

    Dammit. I knew they would do something cool while I'm halfway around the world and already suffering withdrawal from the game :(

    Also, for anyone new to the game, check out hotslogs.com and set yourself up. Ben does a great (unpaid) job with his site and it can be useful to see where you are succeeding and failing over time

    So managed to win my last placement game..

    I thought we'd lost at draft but somehow it just went our way..

    Me as Johanna with Diablo, Kerrigan, Raynor and Azmodan vs Uther, ETC, Tychus, Falstad and Xul.

    Managed to place gold 2 but only won 5 games. With 2 mega throws during it :(
