I just wanna share with you some Tips about how to be a good League of Legends player, and i hope it helps every new player.

To be a good player you should follow these tips which will lead you to be a good/lovely player !

1. Know your game

If you are a competitive player and want to imitate pro's -> Play ranked.
If you are just playing for fun and stress free -> Play normals.
If you are a casual gamer -> Play custom/aram/dominion/tt.

Its no point to antimeta in ranked, if youre playing soloque.
Nobody else is wanting antimeta games and its only you. Dont be selfish.
Play normals instead and have premades. This way you dont piss off others for no reason.

2. Knowing your lane

In champ select, Say your best lane and worst lane. This way everyone knows your strengths and can play more coordinated to win.

STOP THE "I SAID FIRST". This only pisses everyone off and makes your chances getting your desired lane even lower.
For example: I have developed my strengths at every lane but i'm most powerful at mid.

Be polite about it.

3. Abuse the ping system

Instead of typing: "GG OUR JUNGLER NO GANK"

Use OMW ping's so everyone know's that you're coming to help.
Use the ? ping if your lane is missing, instead of typing it in chat.
Use the assist me ping if you need a gank.
Use the danger ping to tell your teammates that its not a good idea to initate.
Use the V ping (back) to tell your teams to disengage and turn back.

I only use the chat function if i ask for item suggestions or other game related stuff.

I understand that the jungler cant always come to rescue you when you fail your lane.
Just a simple assist me ping tells your jungler that you need attention next. Your jungler comes to help you eventually. Be patient.

Nobody us can focus on the chat when were getting that sweet 1-2-3 combo to kill that enemy mid. The smartping system is so much more efficent.

4. Reports

Don't beg for reports. It only makes you look like an ass.
Be quiet and calm and just report the toxic person after the game is over. (he will get eventually hes deserved justice. Don't worry.)

5. Chat

Stop making that kid's tantrum lose the game for you.
Ignore that damn chat. Why do you care what that 12 year old kid thinks?
I have /all Chat disabled always. Made me improve since i don't have to see those taunts.

Abuse the mute button. Your teammates can still smart ping.

6. Premades

5 v 5 soloque:
40% your team gets a troll and 50% enemy gets a troll. 10% is you.
2 premade: 30% your team and 50% enemy team... 20% increase of not getting trolled.

Always prefeer duo queue since it gives a chance that the enemy has a bad team and you don't.

Don't spam WE DUO WE BOT. Learn to play all lanes and synergize with your team.

7. Losing

Report toxic players and move on to the next game.
Losing a normal doesent mean anything. So don't get mad about it.

In ranked: You got outplayed. You had a troll in your game. It happened...
And your raging wont make it go away. Just accept it and move on.

8. Stop being the leader

STOP! Chat and be a team. Talk it out in the champion selection and discuss strategies and counters. Stop telling others what to do and try to learn from them.

If you're supporting a bad adc. Instead of flaming him and going dive dying on the enemy. Play it safe and be at the back. Follow the adc's movement and try to help him improve.

9. Advice

If someone tells you to build more survivability/damage. They only mean good for the team. Offcourse this works both ways. You only want to win right? Or you only want to have as much fun as possible. Many players need to stop being so butthurt about getting advice. Every player that just started this game can relate to running into towers and dying over and over untill they learn from experience. Sometimes its just worth it to say "don't do that, it doesent work in this game."

But always remember to be polite about it.. Nobody wants to hear that they suck and need to uninstall.

10. "I said first" issue

When you're in ranked/normal draft pick. Come on. ITS DRAFT MODE. The "i said first rule" does not even apply in blind mode. So why do i see 9/10 times this phenomenon happening in DRAFT MODE?

This is the internet, NOT THE KINDERGARTEN. If you wish to apply "i said first" rules, please go to the nearest kindergarten and fight over for toys.. We are here to play and try to win.

11. Stats

So many times i see children getting steamed up on K/D/A..
Lets break down what this means.
Your kills = how many times you managed to last hit someone down.
Your deaths = How many times you got last hit.
Your assists = How many times you assisted on the last hit.

Still i see good adc's getting flamed by stupid teammates who only see hes K/D/A.
So what if that adc has 1/5/0 early. He still dealt MOST DAMAGE IN THE GAME in the stats screen after the game. Its not about those flashy numbers. Its about how much your carry did damage.
Stop chasing kills all the time and for once see clearly what it takes to win a game.

This behaviour is so damn frustrating.

12. Honoring

So many times this function is not used. Reason basicly is that its useless and you gain nothing from it. So why is it there?

Actually honoring people boosts the team morale 25% of the times. Its not a guaranteed friendly match but it sometimes calms people down and make them concentrate and stay friendly.. yes its only 25% chance but that's still better than nothing right?

Use this as a weapon to make happy people more happier. Cause happy people win games more than angry people. (Calm beats stressed anytime if its a equal match.)

Riot gave you a function to reward good players (good as in nice and kind). So abuse it and spam it if you see friendly people.. or atleast someone who did good plays during the game.

13. Improving yourself

You don't always win games. You have to accept that.
This is a team game so if you have ex. 2 lanes that are failing. Always focus on your own lane and try to improve. Because you are training for the next possible game, and this time it might just be YOU that is failing hard.

If your lane is failing hard and you can't seem to win. Just use the "assist me" ping and wait till your teammates are ready and can start to help you turn your lane. Try to stall the lane by getting GP10 items and playing very passively. This is rewarding if you see that you died twice and the opponent can simply snack you when you come too close. At this point when you lost your lane hard, you need 2 people to gank or else it wont be as effective.

Keeping the focus on your own game is extremely important in soloqueue. You can't rely on your teammates in soloqueue cause you don't have voic. You just have to rely on pings and hope if your teammates notice.

If all other lanes lost. Just keep trying.. There might be that one enemy team member who decided to troll and boom. You have a great opportunity to win. Also keep a close look on whos team has the endgame champions. You might get steamrolled in the early but the late game is a different story.

14. Winning a 1-4 vs 5

If you see that the enemy team had a afk from the start of the game or had a person who just kept walking in the center of the map to get picked off.
Why do you insist saying it was a good game and laughing at the team that losed..

Seriously are you that desperate that the only game you can enjoy is the 5v4's that are easy for you? Come on be supportive and say "sorry for your afker"
And move on. It wasn't a good game. It never was. its a bad game from the start. If you played a match where it was 5v5 and nobody did anything intentionally like walking in the center of the map all the time to ruin it, then it was a good game. Stop being an ass about winning. You got your win so be happy about it. Don't trash talk the losing team. Report the afker/troller and move on.

15. Map vision

If you have teammates that have no clue how to use the smart ping system and doesen't support you. Please keep looking at the minimap.
In soloqueue its pointless to assume that your team has your back. Many times i initate a 5v3 and have 4 teammates walk away and it turns into a 1v3.

Solution is :
Train yourself into looking at the minimap every 30 seconds. After you master the timing look.
Then train yourself into looking at the minimap every 15 seconds.

After a while of training you should take a quick peek at the minimap every 2 seconds to watch out for anything suspicious like empty lanes which weren't pinged. Or if you see a enemy jungler walking towards you. Its always worth it to check the minimap.

Stop complaining if you got ganked in mid. Its not your junglers fault. Its your fault for not buying wards.
Even i buy 2 wards after first or second back from mid lane. Its even turning into a habit.

16. Variable champion picks

To totally stomp your opponent in a duel lane requires you to have knowledge on the opposing champion.
You should play like me and change your champion each game and try to stop playing the same character over and over again.
If you do this, you will :

1. Learn new champs and be good at them
2. Know exactly what the enemy is capable of, because you played that champion yourself
3. Know how to pick better in champion select just incase someone troll picks, you can still change your lane if you're already locked in

17. Death

You're happily farming your Q on nasus when suddenly 5 enemies appear from your tower and from the bush and you cant do **** about it.
Stop trying to run away and die. Instead try to do as much as damage as possible before death. Its pointless to try and run from all that CC and die after. If you see that the full enemy team is rushing you, go to their tower and hit it a couple of times before dying.. Atleast then you do some permanent damage.

Ignore raging teammates when you do this. Later they will see that it paid off.
Always have your last stand when all hope is lost.

If you cant harm their towers. Atleast blow off all your cd's and try to burst atleast one enemy down before dying..
That will turn a free death into a enemy killed, worth it.

18. New builds

If someone in your team decides to do something out of the ordinary and try something new "EX: Reliving the duo top build from season 1"

Instead of fighting tooth and nail against it and yelling "HAHA YOUR STUPID BUILD DIDN'T WORK" each time the guy dies.
You should try everything to make it work... All hes doing is trying to win.. The meta is like rock paper siccors. When a guy invents a meta, it can be countered... it takes a LONG time to counter it but it can be countered by doing something out of the ordinary..

If someone has a great build idea.. instead of turning your anger on, remember its only a normal game.. you will forget that normal game shortly.. IF you want to spam 1 top 1 jungle 1 mid 2 bot meta and not play anything else, hey there is a place for it... RANKED.

So if you see these weird and unordinary builds in normals, remember that someone has crunched some numbers and planned in how it would work.. and atleast let him try it.. after it fails missrebly, he will learn that it doesent work and stop trying to make it work each time someone just disagrees.. cause the mentality will just make him think: "man this build would work if it wasnt for this flaming afk renekton..."

Just few simple tips leads you to the greatness, you just have the full control and you won't regret.

Enjoy your game
