Ive had that a lot recently... and I don't know. I can't use my champion to her fullest then can I? For example, Nami's W can bounce to enemies, but most of the time the adc disengages from a fight where all abilities have been exhausted.... and I don't know. Its been extremely depressing lately. Dropped 2 divisions as well... I don't know what to do with my life anymore. Most adcs below high Plat or even Diamond don't know what they are doing. When I'm laning with a very passive adc I generally just sit back and wait for the opponent to make a mistake. Also don't be afraid of using your pings. Ping like crazy to either get your adc to back off or push up with you, but be aware of your positioning at all time.
Thank you, Ive been struggling since this last post as usual, but Ive been learning to be better gradually. Despite mute all and fullmute all, I still can't control my tilt... Ive even gone as far as listening to piano music and relaxing music. But its so stressful... how did you get better?

It's more about changing your mindset a little bit and being aware of what your opponent can do so you can abuse them when they waste their abilities. Even if you are playing a caster like Morgana you can still auto attack in between your spells. Yes those individual attacks don't do much damage but over time they build up and can be the difference between a kill or not. If you can get into the habit of using your auto attacks more in your combos you will find you'll do a lot more damage overall. The other thing is your positioning. Like I said there were times in that Morgana game when you were so far back that you couldn't do anything when Kaisa got attacked. A rule of thumb I follow is try to stay next to your adc as much as possible. If they walk up, walk up with them. If they back off, back off with them. If for some reason you need to move away from them (to place wards for example) then ping them to retreat, otherwise they will get harassed the moment you step away. Overall the 3 things I would work on are: 1. Staying close to your adc 2. Pushing for the level 2 advantage (3 melee minions of the second wave) 3. Using your auto attacks more in between your spells If you do this your laning phase will improve dramatically and your adc will be able to get more farm and therefore be more effective later on.
This makes sense, but what if the ADC does not know what he's doing in Bot Lane. Ive had that a lot recently... and I don't know. I can't use my champion to her fullest then can I? For example, Nami's W can bounce to enemies, but most of the time the adc disengages from a fight where all abilities have been exhausted.... and I don't know. Its been extremely depressing lately.

Thank you. I have been keeping to Morgana, Leona and Nami lately. Keeping to three as you suggested. Yeah ADC isn't my strongest role.. so I gave it up. I am just too dumb for it, too slow. 'Each Death is a lesson' thank you, but sometimes I don't know why I died... Sometimes the mistake you make happens 2-3 minutes before your actual death, also in Silver players are very bad at punishing mistakes, meaning you could be making a ton of mistakes and never notice. For example, in your latest Morgana game which you lost (Morg + Kaisa vs Soraka + Sivir) there were 3 key mistakes from you in the first 3 minutes that would get punished at higher ELOs: 1. You knew Trynd, Sivir and Soraka were on your red buff (it was warded) and you didn't ward to protect yourself. They could very easily have taken the red buff and immediately collapsed onto you and you would never see them coming. 2. You didn't help Kaisa push for the level 2. The duo lane gets level 2 after killing the 3 melee minions of the second wave. When the second wave came in you just sat in a bush and did nothing. If you had auto attacked the minions you would have hit level 2 before Sivir got into the lane, securing the kill on her. 3. After you hit your first binding on Sivir you did 2 auto attacks and then backed off while Kaisa kept going. There was no reason to back off at this point as Sivir had just missed her Q and Soraka had just used her Q, meaning they had nothing left, plus you had the minion advantage. Hell you could even have used your ignite there and Sivir probably would have flashed and healed as soon as she was free of the binding, at which point you can turn on Soraka who is stuck in your minion wave with no help. These are relatively small things but they do add up. For example, had you done those 3 things (especially 2 and 3), Kaisa wouldn't have needed to use her heal in that trade or her flash to escape trynd's gank which would have put you in a very strong position. After that, when Kaisa gets low you are sitting way too far back and I'm not quite sure why. It's a level 2 Soraka and a level 3 Trynd without flash. Soraka pushes up way too far and is allowed to harass Kaisa without getting punished.
Ive never thought about all these factors when Im playing, when you explain it here so clearly... I guess the problem is really me. How are you able to keep with all these things at the same time? Just mental notes? Oh my games yesterday were tough since my Ping was like 300+, so I tried my best to work with it. It's what it is.

: No need to despair. I have looked over your ranked games on the op.gg page, and things are really not as bad as you feel they are. Here are my recommendations: Choose only 2 roles to play. Choose no more than 3 champions for each of those roles. Once you complete those steps, just play. It would help you to watch replays of your games (watch only yourself) and pay close attention to your deaths. In most cases, dying in League means you made a mistake. It could be a simple case of poor positioning, or that you underestimated your opponent's damage, or that you initiated a fight without the knowledge of the position of the enemy jungler, and ended up getting ganked. Playing a small pool of champions in 1 or 2 roles will help you gain experience in different match ups, which will allow you to learn how to play against certain opponents. Regarding the question of guides, I can recommend you two YouTubers I follow as a support main: The Strategy Professor and Nasteey. As for your ADC games, from what I can tell, you seem to die a lot in lane. If you are dying in lane as the carry, you are either playing too aggressively and not giving your support time to set up or follow up a play, or you are playing too passively and letting your opponents herd you into a losing trade. As a Lucian, you want to play aggressively in lane. You want to constantly look for an opportunity to use your passive on your opponents. If the enemy support has some form of CC, you want to wait for them to use it, then dash into them for a double AA + Q + double AA. Try looking up some gameplay videos on YouTube for something more concrete. On another note, if you are winning your lane, make sure not to overextend. In a ranked game you played 2 days ago as Lucian 5/10/14, 6 out of 10 of those deaths were on bot lane, and half of that was on the enemy part of the map, which implies that you overextended into enemy territory when you did not have back up from your team. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} TL;DR: Play only 2 roles, play 1-3 champions on those roles. Watch replays of your games and pay attention to how you died. Each death is a lesson. Look for gameplay videos on YouTube.
I'm sorry I'm really late, hope you had a good Christmas and a happy new year. This is extremely useful. Thank you. I have been keeping to Morgana, Leona and Nami lately. Keeping to three as you suggested. Yeah ADC isn't my strongest role.. so I gave it up. I am just too dumb for it, too slow. 'Each Death is a lesson' thank you, but sometimes I don't know why I died...

: These are the golden rules of league: 1. Don't die to jungle ganks** example: ** stay on your half of the lane until you know where their jungler is) 1. Time enemy cooldowns **example:** if your the enemy used his ability to farm or missed a skillshot on you, then go for the trade and back off unless you are a champ that likes extended fights. 1. Get to know the champ that you are playing, learn their mechanics and early game cheese, their power spike and what are they good against and their tricks and combos. 1. Focus more on objectives and getting gold, keep a good CS, kill only if you see the chance, baron and dragon are really good to focus on, if one of them is up, play around them (be near them). 1. Learn more champions so that you know their interactions versus other champions, who is stronger or weaker versus who. This is pretty much so that you have a bigger arsenal, maybe there is a champion that you might be universally good with, test out builds. If you follow these 5 things strictly you will start to wreck mostly everyone. **GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!** {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
Thank you, as a support I do my best to do 1-2. I do enjoy the role but its so difficult sometimes... It is kind of dependent on the adc of which I know they probably think the same of me. 3. I try to do this recently, which is why my history has so many unique champions. I could never CS.. so I chose Jungle and Support as my roles.. 4. 5. thats also why I have different champs in my history... tough game.. can be fun when Im learning. Sometimes, the losses are so overwhelming that I don't get it.. and I learn NOTHING.
: Few pointers. If you focus on learning and getting better than you should limit your champion pool, by a lot. In your last 20 games, you have played 13 unique champions which is pretty bad. It is kinda like exercising in real life, you repeat the same exercise a bit before going to the next. Play one champ for about 10-15 games then switches it over to the next. And you should only have like 3 champions that you rotate. Go through this cycle for a while before changing to new 3 champions, would recommend that you at least get 50+ games on each of the three champions before doing so. You shouldn't care about counter picks or whatever, in lower elo it doesn't matter too much and it is also good to force yourself into bad matchups. This is good for two reasons. For a start, it is much easier and faster to learn a champion this way. It also makes it easier to improve in general. Also, if you play a champion you're not good at will hinder your ability to improve at the game. You will put too much focus on your champion instead of the game itself and its fundamentals. And the second part, don't go into the game with the mindset of just getting better, sure it is better that than playing for winning, but it is too broad. You can't just expect to get generally better at the game just like that. Instead, you should focus on one fundamental at a time to improve on and just like with your champion pool, repeat and rotate. Good luck on your adventures
Thank you so much, I was in a depressed phase when I made this post. Even if the said champion has been 'Nerfed' I should continue to play it?

: Advice for new players!
How do I find people to play with? I used to invite strangers after a good match but nowadays... no one responds. It is quite lonely to play like this.
