You know, those games where they almost got the inhibitor and you're too scared to step a foot out of your base because that xin is going to pop out of ****ing nowhere and murder you. And that tank is destroying all of your wards on your side of the jungle (you want to try to stop him, but you know you can't kill him).

Can anyone give me some advice as how to come back from a losing game? This has been happening alot frequently and I just can't find a good strategy.

When you are losing a game that bad do not worry about stopping the tank from destroying your wards in the jungle and just stick close to the inhibitors and defend them and farm it up until a teamfight comes along and focus the main damage dealers if possible.

Farm up and pray that they throw the game by getting overly aggressive, thats what I do atleast.

Yea, in situations like that, your only chance is a good teamfight (preferably under the turrets) and try to wipe them. Focus their damage-dealers (easier said than done) and then you may have a chance.

Is there anything you as a solo person can do?

Not a whole lot.

Is there a good chance your team is willing to work together once you start losing?

Not usually.

What can you do?

Be positive for as a long as you can and promote the ideas from people above

It depends on the context of the game but the best thing is to stay in your base and let the enemy super minions push farm into your base, and just farm up and try to win teamfights under your tower for as long as you can, over and over. Eventually, if you have a team comp designed for late game, you'll be able to overtake them and push to win the game, or at least get a few of their inhibs down to regain control of the map.

If you created a team comp based on early game strength and its hitting the 70-minute mark, though? Well, you'll have to just bite the bullet and lose, or pray that the enemy makes a bad mistake or you make an amazing play. Half the game is in champ select, though.

Play defensively and hope they make a mistake. Try to get a ward in the baron pit at least, as stealing it can turn the game around sometimes. If you had managed to take down their inhibitor turret, send your adc out alone to try to sneak through and destroy it. Preserve what turrets you have left.
