Thanks for the post. Very well thought out and worded. I agree with and appreciate your focus on positivity. Thanks for taking the time to write out your tips to this level of detail. I generally try to stay positive, as no one is going to play better when they are being dumped on, but as with most people, I have my slip ups. Your post has given me renewed enthusiasm. I'll be trying it out in ranked tonight.

I've had multiple instances where I lead my team to victory by keeping them positive. When they start bickering back and forth like children, I tell them to relax and bagging on each other will just make them play worse. It does sometimes take quite some time before they begin cooperating again, but I've won even ranked matches by doing this when my team was seemingly destined for defeat.

When you feel good and aren't agitated, you play better. It's a simple truth.

it is too hard to work together with people when people refuse to cooperate, listen, give input etc

so basically, carry your game with the chat box.

yep I'm doing it wrong.

pretty much all my game related skill is way above my peers but I never type a damn thing in chat b/c I'd rather being concentrating on playing better and not missing anything happening on map or missing a cs than wasting time typing. I just wish being good at the game was actually how you win more games :/

No so much. The chat box is but a small tool in your overall belt. It is an important one that should be used masterly but scarcely as well. You don't want to spend too much time typing, you will miss CS or possibly a kill. I think you have the right basic attitude, but what else is possibly holding you back in games.

This doesn't really help me. On the other hand, I just made gold, my goal for this season. Why I say it doesn't really help is I already play somewhat like this. My computer is too slow to lolking people in champ select, but otherwise This is how I carry games. And how I got gold with silver mechanics XD
