When someone tells you something is "impossible", it typically tells you more about them than it tells you about what you're discussing.

Or in other words, "Impossible is my favorite kind of possible!"


Guys, I got hundreds of these quaint little sayings. Keep trying to convince me that raging at your teammate is the most productive path to success. No two ways about it, ladies and gents: that's absurd.

All I know is this, I played a lot of team sports growing up, played varsity soccer and football in high school, did club sports and intramural sports in college and grad school, and I continue to play various sports for the firm where I work. Teammates yell at each other all the time. It happens. Its part of team sports. If a teammate or a coach yells at you to stop doing something, you try your damnedest to do it. You don't go tattle to your parents or the principle, or whoever is in charge of the league.

There is a very clear difference between doing what the OP did and raging at your teammates.

i think it's ridiculous that raging/cursing is bannable. deal with it, the world is not a perfect place, why do we have to all pretend to be friendly and nice, it's just stupid.

Convince me that what the OP said is "raging".

Ok how to stop feeding... when the other player has over 10 more kills than you don't take them 1 v 1... if they're outleveling out farming out killing you hug turret but if make sure to tell when they're going to dive and fall back if you die they're going to take the tower after you die >_> when running away with your friend and they're getting attack and you have full hp make sure you atleast do SOMETHING to help u.u all these things yet my premade low level buddies never learn :l honestly never and they just get annoyed no matter what i say i help tell them what to build and everything u.u

What if they're intentionally feeding?

"Stop feeding" is just awful. If that is the best you can do, just don't say anything. What are you accomplishing? It's like saying "stop sucking", it is in no way helpful.

You think the guy at the other end of the computer (who is obviously having a miserable game), is going to read 'stop feeding' and be like:

"Oooooohhh...! That's what I'm doing wrong. Thanks for the tip! I'll just... stop."


Next time, try 'Bot lane, just play passive for now- we're letting them snowball. We'll catch you back up by midgame." or "Hey (*jungler*), when you get a sec, could you camp bot for a bit? We're going to have problems later if they keep snowballing from here and I think mid and I will be fine without the ganks."


Or better yet, if his lane is behind and you know they're not going to be able to turn it around, offer if they'd like to swap lanes with you.

But don't ever mistake "stop feeding" as constructive criticism. Or anything but what it is: the petulant whining of someone who is so self-involved that he'd prefer to vent his rage at his teammates rather than endure his tribulations stoically, help his team overcome them, and then carry them to victory.
Unless it is obvious that they are feeding intentionally. However, in this instance it is unlikely that it is going to change their behavior. Therefore it is best to not say anything, and just report if you think it is genuine.

I suppose.
