4 v 5 games are just so dumb. Had one the other day at 20 minutes my team was up 20 to 4. Doesn't even matter they just drag the game out for 15 more minutes and can't overcome being down one person.

Having to wait till 20 mins. When someone hasn't connected at all is so retarded.

I'm sure there are many other factors for why you're losing games, many of which are beyond your control...but maybe a couple things to point out.

How/why are you posting mid-game? When I play, I greatly value efficiency with just about every second of the game. Whether I'm dead or alive, I'm trying to plan out the items I'm buying, or figuring out where I need to immediately head to maximize on cs/jungle/teamfight. A few seconds delay can make a huge difference in this game.

Constantly getting into 1v2s and 1v3s seems like a good way to throw. You mentioned that you've had trouble closing out games. Use your huge leads to secure objectives and help your teammates as much as possible.

Edit: Also I'm not trying to offend or troll. If you want, I can watch your stream and critique.

Re: Solo Queue and BBV

How to carry 2p2 normal 5s:

1. Pick Jungle Vi.
2. Any time your laner isn't in lane, farm/shove their lane. Pings are meaningless to you. Use your sick Q + EE combo to shove/farm.
3. Take all the kills.
4. Take all the buffs. You're carrying, not them.
5. Lategame, when grouped up, you should still farm with Q+EE combo. If your team gets engaged on while they are on CD, it's their fault, not yours. Go find another lane to farm.
6. Suddenly you have sotAG/Locket/BC/Iceborn, and more CS than any teammate. Blow **** up & win.

Re: Solo Queue and BBV

um

i think u forgot 2 very important moments of that game

1. when i spammed dance in the front of the enemy's face over and over and over as taric until they finally attacked me... and then VOILA our team appears from the bush to melt them

2. when i spammed dance and taunt at blitzcrank, getting him to hook me, allowing me to stun vayne standing next to him and then the team comes in

tl; dr

ctrl + 3 as taric is the most important skill

edit, oh i forgot:

3. rushing banner of command and making a journey across the entire map to promote a siege minion

Re: Solo Queue and BBV

Letting the enemy Renekton solo you at Dragon in order to instill a false sense of confidence in his team only to crush it later is clearly the correct way to carry a 2p2 game.

No respect.

You should try the 21/0/0 Renekton build. Can't be worse than your current one.

The 1v2s were me getting dove or ganked. I knew I could kill both so I just stood my ground.

I post during games when I'm tilting and dead lol.

I'd reply with more substance but I'm currently sitting on a runway waiting to take off for a week of vacation. See you guys next week!

I can't recommend him enough. The reason I am at all good with him is because probably 1/3 of my total games are on him, but damn is he solid. Laning can be tough because it is easy to get over aggressive and he doesn't do much damage so last hitting is annoying, but if you get any edge by level 6 then you can totally dominate the map for the rest of the game.

Also, since there was a discussion about having trouble with map awareness, he really forces you to look at the whole map because of his ult. This really develops your map awareness for every champ and is super helpful. The last month I've had the philosophy of picking champs that will make me better at one aspect of the game and trying to get better mechanics and it has really paid off I've noticed.

edit: Also Rumble in the Jungle skin is OP, been on a pretty good heater with Rumble since picking that up.

Am I correct in thinking you really shouldn't even call roles in draft lobby? It's pick order. Maybe if you pick a multi lane champ you could lock him in and clarify "Zilean mid". I just see so much dodging and bitching In lobbies because some won a race to type something.
