As Shaco ALWAYS try to gank hitting them from behind to use his passive, and attack with auto-attack while u use deceive (Q), dont use E if u arent going to kill him with that

Something that helped me a lot was learning how to use smartcast. If you get good with it, it can improve your performance quite a bit. Those small fractions of seconds are invaluable when it comes down to clutch situations.

There are much better items to start off with, and it's always best to buy items that build up for more powerful recipes later on first. Ruby, Sapphire, Regrowth, Meki...all good starters. Boots? Not so much.
Boots are a very viable first buy if u are midding vs maybe a brand or a cassiopeia, boots help u dodge brands pillar of flame, or cass' q and w... and the health pots help you stay in lane longer..Ruby, Sapphire, Regrowth, Meki?... not so much.

Though as this may change when you rise in elo in early stages it may be obvious when a champ is trying to land a skill shot because they will suddenly dash away from both yours and their own minions to line up the shot.

if you're not doing too well try muting your entire team for a little while, it'll help you focus much more on gameplay and get back on your feet, gl and hf!

The items Lich Bane and Hextech Gunblade synergize very well together, your abilities trigger the spell vamp, which triggers the Lich Bane passive,and the passive triggers the life steal.

Clairvoyance: Not many people pick this spell and because of it nobody notices when they're being spied upon. There's a huge eye floating above the part of the map they revealed. If somebody on the other team has picked this spell look for it. It's often a tell tale sign that the other team is looking for you to gank, so if you see one pop above your head while you're in a bush get out of there fast. This summoner spell is amazing for heros like gangplank, karthus, ashe, and other people with map wide ults.

SkillShots: Skill shots are often regarded as an annoyance, as you can miss and the effect is null. But they're also very handy for searching for stealthed heroes. A good example for this is Dr.Mundo, he has a very cheap and good cleaver attack that he can use every 6 seconds. if you think you are being stalked throw a cleaver in the path of your retreat (a place where twitch likes to hide) if you hear a squelching sound run away from that sound. Or behind you (a place where eve likes to hide). If you don't have wards or a potion any good stealth player will know right away and will have no fear in going into either of these two places. What they don't expect is Mr.Choppy to come sailing their way (they'll call you a hacker, just respond with "don't be so predictable.) Best case senario act like you have a ward up and they'll be less likely to gank in that location.

This is also amazing for checking bushes. Toss a cleaver along the disance of the bush and not only have you checked it for enemys but you've also slowed any would-be gankers so they cant follow you. If the people in the bush are particually dumb they'll just stand there and hope you didn't notice them, allowing you to toss another cleaver in a few seconds later. I use this EVERY time I go to top or bottom at the start of the round. Most players will wait untill you have entered the bush and can see them to attack. So you can get pretty close and most likely if they're in the bush they'll be hit. If not feel free to set up your own gank.

If you're Morg then when you hear your skill shot hit, cast a defile ground at that location, and all of a sudden the ganker becomes the ganked.
Karthus' ult won't go off during his passive (it's not even castable) unless there is adequate time to channel it.

Protip: Don't be afraid to use Malphite's ult to escape a gank or help catch up to a runner with low HP. It is on a low enough CD (specially with high CDR) to be used often, and you are doing more not getting killed or getting that gank than just saving it "for later".

Probably obvious but some people might not know: You can Shunpo/Leap Strike/Safeguard to a ward you put down, say, over a ledge/tree.
