I don't beleve in calling roles and it's not right, but there's some unwritten ~censor~ rule among the 13-1600 Elo community that if you call the role first you get it.
Pretty sure from 1500 and up at least 95% of the players respect picking order and whoever doesn't do it gets bashed.
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.
From: JaggiJumper | #009 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.
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.
I got first blooded by a gank, yet outfarmed Ez and was positive until Jax+Lee decided that me being positive wasn't allowed. I admit I didn't do well but it was over so I didn't take it too seriously.
Anyway, won a game where even if I didn't win lane we would've won, and if I was on the enemy team I couldn't of carried. I don't scream "elo hell" but I just hate how if (and that's an if) I belong at 1536 or w/e (where I was comfortable last season before the reset) that's only 180 elo away, so I can only gain elo in the long run, as I win lane by maybe 20 CS and a kill or too most games, but it just comes down to luck in the short term.
Still, I admit if I only played Zyra my elo probably would rise faster, as last game I ganked bot at level 4 (who would've expected that from a slow mid) which snowballed bot and me to an easy win (and top won on it's own by a lot. --- http://www.youtube.com/TimMH3 LoL IGN: I Am Zyra.

It continues. I was 5/1/4, Graves was 3/1/0, Malph 4/0/0, yet then about 6 times in a row people would get caught out in the stupidest ways/not listen to pings, and Akali+Ashe just got so much gold even though they were both ridiculously shut down in lane. That was so damn frustrating, at their nexus towers pre-20 mins. --- http://www.youtube.com/TimMH3 LoL IGN: I Am Zyra. But who was phone?
I'm 10/1/5 and I tell my team whilst I'm dead "give them baron, take their 40 HP inhibitor. You need me there, just give them baron and trade it for an inhib" They contest and give Graves a triple and get 2 towers, then rush in to fight when they have baron and give him a quad. I told Ez "farm more, Graves is catching up". "Xin, use your ult to peel Wukong off our team, stop diving". Yet we lost due to a 0/7 laning phase KhaZix and a team that wouldn't listen. Leona was really good :( --- http://www.youtube.com/TimMH3 LoL IGN: I Am Zyra. But who was phone?
