why do people make same mistakes over and over and over again?

people don't learn fast enough to correct these mistakes throughout a single game, they will still have the same mentality from start to finish.

however, over many many games, this can be corrected.

Even when I try to be nice about it and it's something as simple as asking people to buy wards...

I don't know what it is. I assume it's because they think they're better than everyone else so when they get told what to do, they get angry so they repeatedly do the same thing.

"Can you please quit facechecking everything Mr. ADC? We have other people who can check for us."

It wasn't a mistake that caused their move to fail, it was pure bad luck. Or it was your fault, you did or didn't do something, which is why the enemy team was able to screw them up.

Because they lack the ability to generate patterns in their head.

If you put your hand on the stove and you burn yourself, a competent person learns not to put their hand on the stove.

These people aren't competent, they don't form cause and effect patterns in their head.

From my experience in Proving Grounds, the most hilarious thing ever is watching someone with <550 range try to poke 5 players with >600 range.

They eat like 1.5k damage just to throw out their 200 damage attack then retreat. They repeat it ad nauseum until they die, then call poke champions overpowered. They keep burning their hand, then call the stove OP.

tl;dr; they dumb brah

Or the reverse: it's worked for them in the past, it's a good pattern. Now that they're not in wood league, breaking the habit is difficult.

Nobody started the game at Plat level, don't act like you did. It took all of us time to learn from our mistakes, I'm not ashamed to say I still occasionally make dumb moves when I know better. All I can do is Analyze what I did wrong and try to play better in the future.
As for your poke reference, another thing that experience teaches much better then actualy numbers. You can say all day that so and so character outranges so and so, but until you go into that matchup and see for yourself it won't sink in. If it bothers you so much that players are making repeated mistakes, gently advise them on what they could be doing better to have a more favorable result.
