This is why my elo has dropped

#1JaggiJumperPosted 1/4/2013 7:00:00 PM
I stopped being a d***** and I literally don't say anything, I just say "mid/top/adc I can fill though" and then I end up being support and our top/mid fail.

Moral of the story: If you want to gain elo, demand a role.

Oh and also this;

"mid or troll"
"I'm going mid regardless"

LOL

dodge!!!!!!
or if you're at the elo where this happens SO often, then demand your role and carry.
just like everybody else.
and if you deserve to get out of it, you will.
but skill alone isn't going to get you out of it

I never had a game where anyone said "mid or troll", I haven't played ranked yet though so that's probably why.

1.) You should be playing Zyra mid every game. Just say "Mid please" as fast as you can when you get into lobby. I don't beleve in calling roles and it's not right, but there's some unwritten retard rule among the 13-1600 Elo community that if you call the role first you get it. If you want to win, play what you're best at.

2.) Work on improving your shotcalling. People may not listen to you if you're 3/4 zed top, but if you're 8/1 zyra mid they will. Not always, you'll throw a ton of games I'm sure, it happens. But if you can win even 10% more games by calling the shots than if you don't say anything, you're making an improvement.

3.) Make a conscious effort to watch your replays objectively. And I'm not just talking about "Oh yeah, I went 12/1 last game, I'm going to watch this and giggle whenever I instagib the enemy ADC."

4.) Buff timers, dragon timers, baron timers, ward timers. Call it every time, all the time. If you catch yourself not calling it, make a mental note until you do it out of habit. 3, 5, 6 and 7 minutes. You should know it like the back of your hand and you don't even have to think about it.

5.) You might be doing something wrong in late game if you're throwing so many games where you're dominating. You should know the limits of your main champion by now, so maybe you're doing something else wrong. Take a look.

P.S. - How's your map awareness? Do you ever get caught? Do you ever chase too far? If so, you're not looking at your map enough. That's probably the biggest problem for players in your elo range and everyone can get better at it. Everyone.

Pretty sure from 1500 and up at least 95% of the players respect picking order and whoever doesn't do it gets bashed.

What's your Elo tc? I believe that the first three picks should be support, jungle, and adc. If I'm first pick I'll support or jungle every game so I don't get countered. Yet every game first picks are calling top and picking Garen.

Thanks for the serious advice Grahf, when I was 1500 it was so easy to find good competitive games without trolls, I don't mind losing if my team tried to win. I've just had a large streak of intentional feeders/AFKs, so I guess I'm waiting for that to be on the enemy team.

here was that end game screen.

Darius gave first blood before minions reached the lane 1v1 to Jax, (he started cloth+5, jax started bottle), so then Yorick said "fk this bad top im top" and they duo topped for the rest of the game. If you don't believe me, check Yorick+Darius' lolking and see the neutral monsters killed stat.

I've only played up to 1600, and it definitely starts to get better around there. The 1500s are still filled with morons when it comes to champ select; I played in the 1500s for a long time last season and am 1500 again right now.

Probably actually unwinnable. But it's not like you stomped your lane or anything.

I had a game as MF a couple days ago where I went 7-1 in lane and was ready to carry my team to victory. However Morde died to poppy eight times in lane. Needless to say, Poppy basically one shot me or ulted Leona then chased me all the way to my nexus.

Not every game is winnable, even when you're carrying. But if you're not winning your lane handily then you probably shouldn't complain about it anyway, as you're then just relying on chance that your team is good enough to carry you.
