Over the past 3 days, I've been in 13 5v4s, only 2 games being at our advantage. I've lost the other 11, always.

Is there no way to counter it? Whats worse is how smug the enemy team is thinking their mad skills let them win the game.

Take this with a grain of salt, but in my last 4v5 where I won, i noticed we played very defensively. We also had a carry who could drop a tower asap (Yi). We pretty much just turtled until we were able to get an ACE or drop 4 of them, then rushed their tower. When they respawned, we backed and held there until we could get a second ace and finished it.

This isn't perfect, since it depends on the enemy team as much as it does your team.

That's what you gotta do. Play defensive, make them extend into YOUR friendly territory, and peck away at them until you get an ace.

To make this work you need a good damager, a crowd control specialist, and someone who can smash towers flat. If your team are a bunch of ranged carries then you deserve to lose anyway.

4v5 gives you one advantage, you gain more gold and xp than the enemy team. Of course, this advantage is negated if the enemy has a jungler and you don't, but keep this in mind for games where it isn't the case. Prolong the laning phase as long as possible, and take easy ganks where you can, once your carry (or your caster, in some cases) is fed, force teamfights at dragon or baron and try to Ace them. Do this twice and it's usually gg.

Kill and plunder everything with all capabilities available before they get to level 18. Because if you don't win and they do, gg.

Also play good pushing carries like Sivir. I always win 4v5s with Sivir.
