Why can't teams realise when they're losing.

#1KarmicDragon1Posted 2/6/2013 12:37:17 PM
Our team started off pretty well, 12 to 5 kills by the first 15 minutes.

After those first 15 minutes, we lost every engagement ever. By 25 minutes, the score was at 14 to 22. Of course, realising we had lost, I start a surrender vote. Everyone on the team votes no. 30 minutes, score at 16 to 31, another surrender vote. Everyone votes no. 40 minutes in, score at 18 to 42. Another surrender vote, everyone votes no again.

Why? Why waste time?

Sometimes if I am trying a new character out I won't surrender no matter what. I do this purely for timing. Such as earlier today I just got fizz. Did awful in lane, I got absolutely destroyed. I didn't know when to engage and when not to, how to time his troll pole, or how far Q would carry me through an enemy, the speed of his ult and such. However, halfway through I started to figure things out, won some late game engagements, still lost but the experience is valuable

I'm the last person to quit trying, but when literally every engagement results in our team getting 3-4 deaths while the opponents get 1 or very rarely 2 there's just no hope.

Pretty sure everyone on this board have had games like yours, without the whimping out surrender voting and still win.

It's not over till it's over.

Engage and position better. You shouldn't have lost a team fight with 12-5 score. It means someone on your team was fed, make plays around them or protect them if they're the ADC.

I've come back from 1-8 early games, believe me, comebacks are always possible.

Obviously this isn't true. It would seem like you are the first to quit

14 to 22 is not even worth considering a surrender vote.

I've had idiots start a surrender vote when the score is something like 10 to 12 with us just having lost a teamfight.

Like uhh, okay? That's not a hopeless struggle.
