If you want to improve at league, write a guide

#1SenraidPosted 9/19/2013 8:45:56 AM
Write a guide for a champion you like and use lots of detail. Forcing yourself to explain what you know about the champion/lane/general stuff to other people will really help you understand things better yourself. Getting stumped on what to write in a section will show you what you don't know. You can check out other guides to see what people have to say and expand your understanding. If you decide to make it public, ask for feedback from gamefaqs or people familiar with the champion.

It's sad to read awful topics where people act really elitist and complain some random irrelevant non-issue that happened in one game like it's the reason they're stuck in silver. Do yourself a favor and start wanting to improve instead of venting about literally nothing.

If you want to improve at league just play a lot more and never blame anyone but yourself for losses.
Mid lost lane? It's because you didn't go gank for them.
Next game, gank for mid. Lost your lane?
It's because you ganked too much for mid. Or you ganked at the wrong times.
Try ganking only when your wave is pushed and don't want to overextend.
Lost teamfight?
Check your positioning and if you did everything you could.
etcetc

rinse and repeat

There's no secret to getting better at something other than doing it over and over and actively trying to improve yourself each time you do it.

You don't get better at playing the piano by trying to write down a guide to it. You get better by just freaking practicing without the assumption that you're already the best or the best you can be.

People take piano lessons. Most people don't take lessons in league or don't try very hard to learn new things from good players. Reviewing lots of other guides and reorganizing the things you learn will help with your understanding of what you should be doing.

Maybe for some people they can have a bad game and still manage to identify their mistakes, but everyone else gets angry. I know writing guides gave me inspiration and excitement over improving and learning. Better mechanics come with practice too though.

You're not writing the guide for other people, it's for you. If you work on it enough it might even be a good guide.

Also why are you such an annoying human being. Can you please not exist?

Unless your practicing bad habits. But i do see where you are coming from, but I also see where TC is coming from. Just depends on your learning style. I prefer learning by playing.

Cheese, you sent me message upon message featuring either Teemo pictures, Kennen pictures, TeemoxKennen pictures or TeemoxKennen fanfiction.

Do not even START throwing the word "annoying" around.
