Even constructive advice like this nets you a "DON'T TELL ME HOW TO PLAY!" People don't rage to make the other person play better, they rage to make themselves feel better.

You can be upset about it, just don't show it :P

I'm pretty damn sure if you get banned you deserved it, I look at my Justice Review cases and I see way more people being (according to me) wrongfully pardoned than wrongfully punished.

When I'm in a good mood, I simply tell bot lane to hold out for a bit because things aren't looking well until I get a chance to go down there and give a quick hand, even if it's just to pop the enemies spells...

ive won games because me telling my team to "stop ****ing getting caught" or "just ****ing farm"

it snaps them out of this little rage they are in trying to blame everyone else and they listen and win the game

telling them they need to stand under turret politely will 100% get a **** you

if they are being nice and calm about and not playing like they have no hands then i wont rage, they are simply outmatched

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.
When trying to offer advice to these people (no matter how nice you are about it) usually ends up with a "STFU NOOB"

Would it be better just not to say anything at all and cut your losses? i mean lets face it... a carry with 12 kills under his belt is pretty much a sign of the end (unless you pull out some crazy stunts, or all your other lanes play perfectly, including jungler)

Please don't waste your time trying to reason with a rager. Just let him stew over his ban [a few times] till he is ultimately driven away. It's likely he is having serious social problems in the real world. No game is going to replace a lesson a good bar fight can't teach.

I like how he skipped over this...

The people that are the worst always have the biggest mouths too. They feed and are huge cancers.

If I may, that's a psychological defensive technique. Simply put, when they're being harassed they defend themselves by pretending that they are doing it on purpose in order to reciprocate the same feeling to you.

In short: You're making them mad, now they're mad, your game is, how to put this, '****ed'

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.
"Thank you bot lane for dying to the same thing 8 times in a row, lost us the game and wasted 20 minutes of everyone's time, but its all good and jolly because we're all friends here and this is happy carebear land, time to go dancing ^^"

How would you explain to the 0-8-1 ashe at 10 minutes that maybe continuing attempts to 1v1 vayne, whom is 14-2 at this point, is not the best idea. I can tell you right now sir, that that individual is going to listen to absolutely NOTHING i say, no matter how polite or intentional I may seem.

This junk happens almost every 2nd game and its ignorance at its finest.
