I had this problem as well, you need to start romaing right after you send your lane opponent back/kill him/her.

Ofcourse, now I seem to be losing games due to people leaving 5 minutes in.

If your goal is to win your lane, then you're doing great.

If your goal is to win the game, you should stop focusing on 'winning your lane' as a barometer for anything other than a early/mid game advantage. Because that's really all that it is.


I'd personally much rather have a teammate who knew when to group up as five, knew how to stay positive and constructive when teammates were losing lanes, and knew how not to panic than a player with superior motor skills that couldn't do those things.

It's easy to think of this game as purely about your own skill and how you can properly execute your micro- and those aspects are important- but so much of this game is about showing leadership, teamwork, patience, and striving to carry players who are simply not at your skill level. That's a part of the game. You can ignore it or get frustrated by it or get angry at everyone who is 'not on your level', but a player's ability to accept that simple fact and adapt is crucial to any success in solo que.

And never is that more apparent then when we do these soft-resets and all of a sudden Diamond level players are playing with Bronze players... and the two have very different habits in their approach to the game. Solo Que rewards leaders. It rewards players who are patient with lanes that are feeding. It rewards players who adapt to a lane that's losing and offer to swap or take time to focus or teach players how they can play more passively. Solo Que rewards players who verbally offer support to their teammates, because a team that goes on tilt is incredibly easy to beat- and you are a factor in every game, in either a positive or negative way, on whether you or your teammates go on tilt.


Winning your lane is good- don't get me wrong- but leadership wins games.

Aww, be nice. The problem is a lot of those who play with those kinds of champs kind of sit on their thumbs, expecting to snowball/continue dominating without doing much with their lead.

If you're intent on winning your lane AND winning the game, the best way is to aggressively push objectives after you've gained a lead. I play a lot of Malzahar myself, and he's very strong at making a mid-game snowball, but the secret is to get objectives done quickly. He's great at downing towers, dragons, etc, (for a mage anyways), use that to your advantage. He isn't too shabby in teamfights either, but you need to be very successful and shrewd in how you use your spells, if you build up a lot of AP, they hit like a truck, but are on fairly long CDs. Against a smart team, missing a Q or placing W in a poor spot means the enemy team might try to make a play with those spells down (which is the exact same way I try to play when I'm against an AP like Lux or Brand).

My philosophy is if everyone wins their lane

Is there really a need to group as 5?

Can't each individual lanes just keep pushing

This just in!
Riot admits their matchmaking doesn't pair you with people on your skill level!

Trololol.

Make sure you roam. A lot of the time, someone will win their lane, but do nothing outside of it. If possible, try to help the other lanes.

EDIT: Also, your team probably just sucks
