I can not win games in Ranked. My friend and I duoed for three games, and only won one because the enemy team afked. We lost the other two because our team argued all game, or afked.
I escaped. At that elo I had won more 3v5's than I lost, it's do-able, it's just a case of finding your way. I did it with the likes of Renekton, Caitlyn, Nasus and Sejuani.

also if you think silver/bronze is bad, try playing with plats. they're like bronze, but even cockier. and for lack of better words, they're a bunch of ****holes.

It might be worth it to just follow your team with the bad calls. If only half your team follows a good call, then it's not that good of a call, because you don't have your full strength. However, if your entire team follows through on a bad call, then it might not turn out to be so bad.

You're playing with the same type of people that the other team is playing with, and if you're constantly losing, then there's probably something wrong. If you're having a lot of trouble, then stick with champions that can carry hardcore. Champions like Akali, Yasuo, Fiora, Riven, just about any ADC except Ashe, and Rengar can all carry a team (I know these aren't the only ones, but they are the ones on top of my head). Group up in a lane and force a team fight. If you're really fed, then you should be able to take them out with little resistance.

Also, this video might help. It's a little on the harsh side, and it may not apply, but oh well, the points still stand (warning: language):
I barely even say a word. I just let them fight. I rarely do any arguing. I save that for normals, where I care much less about losing. I play champions like Rengar, Udyr, Xin Zhao, etc. Champions that bring a lot to a team, and aren't just damage or pushing (Except my kitty).

btw, Sky Williams is hilarious. Possibly the funniest thing I've ever seen.

So after juggling around a bit with wins and losses, I finally made it into Silver 3. I've been in Silver 4 for the past few months, though that's only really because I just started playing again. I think I'll probably be able to make it to Gold 5 before the season ends, but that really depends on how well I utilize this next week as I don't have any school.

Regarding the issue of people making bad calls in ranked, and people being split on whetherh to follow it, I do know the feeling. The only advice I can really give is to not start raging. It's not gonna help anything once the call's already been made, and it's not necessarily gonna keep people from acting out on their calls. When making calls, just sound confident rather than angry. People will be more inclined to follow your lead. And of course there are gonna be people who are too stubborn, and that can't really be helped, but raging over it isn't gonna help anything. Not that I think you're the person to do that, but just speaking from how I've perceived the issue in a lot of my ranked matches.

Generally I tend to keep an attitude of 'everyone makes mistakes and have bad games in ranked', and tell people not to beat themselves up over it if it's going bad, possibly giving some advice on how to avoid __ thing happening again, since people seem more susceptible to listening in those cases. Well, as long as I'm not doing poorly myself haha. But yeah, even if I'm annoyed or angry that someone's feeding, making bad plays or not listening to the team, I try to point it out to them in a non-intimidating manner.

I definitely am not always the best one at making calls, and I'm in no way perfect, but this is the way I'd want people to approach me when I did poorly, and I've found it makes the games a whole lot more enjoyable to play if someone isn't caps-raging in the chat about how badly someone's doing.

Well, then I got nothing.

And Sky Williams is possibly the greatest thing to happen to the LoL community, haha.

OK, some changes to my champion pool.

Swapped Lee Sin with Rengar, Swapped Azir with Anivia, Gnar, Vayne and Lulu remain the same.

Just had my first ranked game as Anivia vs an Ahri main (I was last pick and I picked Anivia beacause we had no waveclear) and I jsut destroyed her on lane. I have NO idea how, but I was able to dodge every charm she ever fired at me... So maybe she has the same trouble I do (find it very hard to hit floating targets).

One point in this game, it was questionable whether it was a gold level game or a bronze level game, because in 2 teamfights, at least 3 of them were just standing on my ult for the entire fight.

Well I was supposed to study for my english essay tomorrow but instead ended up watching worlds with Slate, Bidoof, littlebrother and Windy on the battle server. :p

Below is how the game went but I spoilered it in case people want to see it themselves first. :)

Spoiler:

The world hype train was flying full speed ahead with Samsung vs a team from China. Not only was I the only one watching the horror that was twitch chat, the game was honestly a wreck. Jayce and J4 had a pretty good ganking wombo combo and the whole game was a bloodbath with Samsung heavily in favour in terms of everything. :p Basically get shrekt or go home. ... or get sniped by jayce like insec


On a slightly related note:
SHACO IS A NIGHTMARE ASDFGHJKL; I hate him sorry. :( Everything about him from his design to 'imma get yo in yer jung lad'.

OK IM DONE NOW. back to studying for english ;__;

it's a matter of time

Shaco is beautiful I'm not sure what you're talking about! Haven't played too much of him recently but there's nothing more fun than Q-ing into a team fight, ulting and watching the confusion unfold. c: And also just generally being a jerk and ganking people.

I just watched some of the finals of the world's games. Sooooo good. It got really intense *-*.

Spoiler:
SSW is pretty amazing ngl - they definitely deserved the win. Of the games I watched they absolutely dominated. Watching the finals really makes me want to play more twitch and jayce haha

I feel like worlds and the esport side of LoL in general kinda influences the FotM or meta you see when playing PvP, ranked or even stuff like Dominion. Zilean mid got used in the LCS. Poof, a sudden influx of Zilean mids everywhere. Also I remember after Kog'Maw made a surprise appearance in a lot of the games, its popularity skyrocketed for a while as well. Same with Cait. That or I've never really paid much notice to what my opponents are picking every game. :( which is really likely knowing me buuuut y'know my point still stands ;__;

YEAH THAT'S RIGHT TOM. SHACO IS A JERK like you :(

I'm pretty sure my most hated champs are things I just don't generally do well against or find really annoying. It doesn't even matter if I play the champ myself. I hate stuff like Volibear, Shaco, Blitzcrank, Garen (spin 2 win), Evelynn and generally champs I have to be more wary against or predict what they're going to do. I'd much rather vs something more predictable and easy to shut down like Yasuo. Also tanks. :( Especially those that charge at you and FLIP YOU INTO THEIR FUC- (*cough* singed and voli *cough*)

tl;dr: i hate volibear

it's a matter of time

I'm sick, so I had to stay home from work, but I got to play a few games of LoL after I puked and felt better, so... yay?

Anyway, since I'm trying to expand my champion pool, Maokai, Thresh, and Kennen all make their way into my champion pool. Kennen is my most recent addition, and he is a lot of fun to play as. I've dominated just about every lane with him, but I found out that he doesn't fare so well against Karthus. Oh well, at least I have Galio for that.

As far as my least favorite champion goes, when I'm banning in draft mode, Heim is always my first ban. I hate him so much, he should just be removed from the game entirely. Every time I try to get him and whittle him down, he just kites me as his turrets shred through my life bar. Before I know it, I'm dead and Heim has a sliver of life left, and it's basically the dumbest thing ever.

I think everyone has one or two champions they feel like that about, I don't mind Heim personally but I would absolutely love to see Lee Sin and Yasuo both deleted from the game XD

I recently went back to League to check out how they reworked Soraka and I gotta say... I don't think Soraka is going to be my main support anymore.. or that I'll even play her anymore. I just hate her rework, she can't even heal herself, heal others without killing herself or even restore mana. I absolutely hate the new Soraka...
