Strategy plays around your teams strengths and avoids their weakness. If no one can follow it it was a bad strategy.

Well there you have it. A lack of communication. You told them what to do but not why, so they did not see what you saw.

Its like a pick-up game of football everyone wants to be quarterback and no one wants to listen to your plays.

This is why many people prefer to play premade teams. Sure, solo queue is faster, but premade teams ensure communication.

I did tell them why "shen will have to ult in" I dunno, I thought maybe people would connect that with "the lane will stop pushing" but maybe not, maybe I overestimate the mental capacity of the average LoL player...
