It's not a guide, it's an experiment

Have you given it a sincere try?

Except just yesterday i won a 3v5 game after we had all 3 inhibitors down and defended for about 10-15 min before pulling off an ace and win the game. Surrendering is weak. (There are exceptions)

Neddih, I appreciate your contribution, and I think you're being downvoted for:

Writing a single-line response that shows very little understanding or effort of the original post.

On top of that, it doesn't show that you read UODK's + Ezrabar's incredible additions to the thread.

When you take the time to really write something valuable, people will usually support it.



Orrrr... maybe you're 100% right on with your comment, and the downvotes are just jealous haters

Who knows?

Never.
Ever.
Ever.
Ever.
Surrender
A ranked game
Ever.

There's no point.

If you're going to lose, you will lose eventually anyway.

If you have ANY chance of winning, you might as well give it your best shot.

1 team fight.

1 baron.

1 tower.

1 mistake on the enemy teams part.

1 item which was a waste of gold.

1 amazing play by your team.

Singular things like above can turn the game around and cause you to win. You should ALWAYS be looking for that 1 opportunity to sway things into your favor.

Your odds of winning may be 1%.. or .005% ..

But your odds of losing Elo are 100% guaranteed if you surrender early.

Games where you are equally matched against your opponent may result in VERY close games... But "very close" games don't always start out as being "very close".. They often start out as a very uneven match, and then they sway into the favor of the opposing team.

Unless you don't care about your Elo, do not take the advice of the OP.

Etherimp, thanks for sharing your perspective.

Interesting thoughts there.



Let me be extra clear, my OP is two things:

1. A suggested experiment.
2. My own personal experience.

It's shared to give people an option and opportunity to Try Something New.

I know, crazy right?

Trying new things?

Who does that?!

Well, you sound really, really open-minded, so maybe you'll try it, eh?

I'd love to know the results you get from sincerely experimenting :P

In my experience, losing sucks. If you like experimenting with losing, move to Tornado Alley and experiment with losing a trailer home. Thing is, every time some negative Nancy like you spams "Surrender" 20 minutes into an undecided game because their team is behind 7-10 kills, you ruin it for those of us who are actually trying to win.

It explains perfectly why you're 10/25 in ranked.

Your OP isn't a "suggested experiment". It's stupid trollish non-sense. Anyone who pays attention to it and takes it seriously belongs at their horrible Elo.
