How?

No one cried and moaned, no one raged. No one left, no DC's (on either team). We kept our composure, and started working better together. Plain and simple.

No, I'm not posting to brag, i'm posting to show that next time you're down a bit in a game, you shouldn't start flinging the random insults, or blaming your teammates, or even surrender or leave. you should keep trying, and keep pushing. There is ALWAYS a chance you can still win. And just for the record, there's not many wins that feel better then the ones that you just KNEW you were gonna lose because you were so far behind.

But its my insults that inspire people to show me up and they start to do good so I'm not a 1 man pub star!

Oh yeah, most often it happens as the other team gets to cocky and then start becoming stupid, its a two way effect. One team picks it up and the other starts to faulter.

Seems like what happened yeah. They got pretty arrogant and started moving out alone getting picked off till we caught up.

You're right, you shouldn't ever stop playing now, because of the ******edness of the new experience system you have never lost, no matter how far behind you are. Simply kill a few of their champions and you're on equal ground, then you can push and win in a few seconds. Just toss a few AoE ultimates down and kill 2 or 3 champions and you've made up the entire 25 - 100 (it really doesn't matter how much) kill deficit you had.

Well said. I've had several games now where we've been down a number of kills (one game we were down close to 20) only to come back.

The key is realizing that the game has a strategic aspect to it that is more than just getting in kills. If you can kill the entire enemy team at once, that counts for much more than killing them all individually but separately. Take opportunities when they are in the dead pool to push down towers and take out inhibitors; and fall back on your defenses when they are strong and you are weak. It's called strategy, something some players (see raging comment above) would do well to learn.

Because of the new experience system, this is basically true.

Game focuses way too much on laning and not on hero kills.

In other words, your team was never actually behind and this was one of those games where the hero kill scoreboard didn't reveal what was actually going on in the game. Don't get where the comeback came from.

That's where you don't get it to begin with. the game isn't ABOUT hero kills. it's about pushing lanes, and taking down turrets.
