: Hey man, Welcome to the Ranked climb! Its great to see you are open to advice in your journey. I'll talk about two things to try and help you on the Ranked Ladder. Your game play and how to improve and your attitude towards the game. I'm going to start with attitude first because I believe this is one of the most important things to get right before you can improve and climb fast. **Attitude** When you are playing Ranked focus on your own gameplay, never look to push blame onto others. Unless you are literally Faker then there are probably things you could have done better to put your team in a position to win. Check out this video from Gbay99 - https://youtu.be/5MTO2a7ZFcc Always stay positive, if you don't have something nice to say don't say it. If you are negative in your team chat not only will you add fire to the fuel but you could also potentially start your team on a downward spiral to fighting each other in chat instead of playing the game and trying to win. Remember League of Legends is a team game you have to work together as a team to win. #TeamWorkOP - https://youtu.be/ugXC7g3p0JU **Gameplay** You've only just started on your ranked journey, there is going to be a lot to learn (hell I've played for 4 years and still have lots to learn). Don't get discouraged by losses and make sure you learn something from every death (why did you die? were you out of position? misjudged damage of opponent? etc) and make sure you always continue to learn about the game. There is a lot more to this game than just csing and fighting champions. Check out this sick play list from UNSW LoL Society - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9RdXhXESRJzgY_SwHB8T-cZxXljWhQvz It will teach you a lot about trading in lane, lane control, team fighting, and also how to use a lead. Hope this all helps and good luck on the Rift! taken from earlier comment - http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-strategy/zVgleF4L-im-loosing-rank-even-more?comment=0000

: Generally speaking you will lose a lot of games, like 50% of them so don't get yourself down after a few bad games it happens to pros as well, even really good players will still lose 40% of the time, and is not always your fault a lot of people will feed for whatever reason BUT take the blame anyway think of every game as a winnable game, that you could have done something better, find out what that is maybe you died too much, maybe you could have counter ganked somewhere maybe you could have gone in for this kill earlier find these mistakes and work on improving so they don't happen again (recording your games and watching them for these things can help a lot try using this program called LSI has a lot of features including recording games (http://www.leaguelsi.com/) Don't worry you wont get banned for using it its all good with Riot), but what i have notice through solo-queue (ranked and normal's. i don't play ranked that often ATM but was Bronze 1 this season now Silver 3 in ~40 games) you have to be the leader, you have to take charge and tell EVERYONE what to do and when to do it, doesn't matter if you call the wrong shot, it happens, just try your best to make the right decisions and learn from mistakes/bad calls. Okay more detail: First thing is first, start playing a snowball like champion (the easier mechanically they are the better) probably someone mid lane or Jungle(as they can roam and make things happen around the map more easily can be any role or champion though) someone who is also fun for you to play(its still a game, don't play it if you don't like it) and get good at them, know every bit of them, all their combos, their tricks how their spells can work with flash or with other spells, everything, know it all - the LoLWiki will help you with this stuff too (leagueoflegends.wikia.com) (easier the champions mechanics the faster this step is) and once you have this champion play them until you can play any match up with them and win (preferably play them in normal's so you don't fuck your Ranked MMR) You might want a second champ to be good with if first one is banned or you can't play that role/champ for whatever reason. Next win your lane, (you don't have to it just makes the rest a lot easier) League is basically 40% Mechanics 40% Decision making and like 20% luck (i dunno making shit up as i go) if you have their mechanics down then its all up to your decision making (of course there's still a bit of luck involved but its okay you are always going to lose games just stay positive) (also extra tip for me with ranked games if i lose 3 games in a row or maybe just in general that day you might want to stop and play again some other time play some other games go out do something and play again tomorrow or at least in a few hours) Now if you can win your lane and shut the enemy laner down that's one person you don't have to worry about, next start roaming and shot calling, and be nice, don't swear to people, don't call them names, for me when i play i yell at everyone i call them idiots, and so on(maybe a bit worse than idiots) BUT i don't say this in chat, that's only gonna make people play worse, just be nice to them in chat, Make sure to constantly press tab to check scores if one of your laners has died twice, tell them to build defensive, or play defensive at least until you are able to help them, however if the enemy laner that's fed is someone scary like a 3/0 Riven, you might not want to go up there if you are not as strong if not stronger or she will probably just kill you both, instead gank other lanes and get them fed enough to deal with that Riven. Okay now thing is not everyone will listen to you, getting fed is a good thing, since generally you can show them stat wise you are good, you are winning lane and they are more likely to follow your orders when you are 4/1 than if you are 0/5, but next you want to be in charge of making plays, catching people out, taking Objectives, in the end League of Legends is an objective based game, kills just help you get them, ALWAYS focus objectives, if you can get a free tower or dragon get it, kills come second, (ALSO if the Nexus is wide open and you guys are going in for a win JUST ATTACK THE DAMN NEXUS don't wait for them to spawn to get more kills, you will end up throwing a game or 2 like this, and its just never worth it) now in order to be the shot caller, you need to be talking in chat a decent amount, but mainly PING, ping everything, if you just killed the enemy jungler and mid laner, ping for Dragon or ping to get a tower, and if they are recalling, just ping a million times get their attention and make them follow your orders, also tell people who to focus, sometimes its really obvious who the fed one is, but say it in chat anyway to "Focus Iriela, or Lucian or Quinn", whatever say it so they know and in fights ping that champion so they notice them, and go for them, specially if you end up dying first, make sure they are targeting right targets. Also make sure that your teammates are building right, you would be surprised how many times I've seen a Vayne build a hurricane (If you didn't know Vayne's silver bolts (W) can only be on 1 target and hurricane puts it on 3 targets, so if there's ever at least 2 people or minions near, she will never proc her silver bolts) again its fine being bossy chances are you will never see these players again and if do neither you nor they will remember you. just be nice though, lift peoples spirits, Say GL HF every game, say thank you or good job if they do something well or give you a buff/save you. make them feel happy and they will play a lot better, if they lose lane or die a few times tell them "its okay say we can still win this game, (even if you don't believe it) just try to play safe, i'll come help you when i can" and anther thing NEVER SURRENDER, for all you know the entire enemy team could suddenly get a heart attack and all die, more realistically that fed person(s) could have their internet cut out or computer shut down suddenly giving you enough time to pull a win, its always possible, you can also just win but catching people out or stealing a baron or making plays its possible to win every game. Okay i didn't actually plan to write this much, but bottom line or **TL;DR** be the leader, control your teams movements, make them do what you want so you can win, to do this you need to watch them all carefully, they wont always listen to you, so play a champ you are good with (that can snowball hard preferably) and win your lane so they will be more inclined to listen to you, then apply pressure around the map through ganking and be sure to focus on getting objectives over anything, and don't forget be nice to everyone. At the end of the day it is a game though so enjoy it, if you don't like ranked, or are still unable to climb, just play normal's, or ARAM's get better eventually you will if you seek to improve, look at every game you play as a way to improve as a player and you definitely will, and make sure to put as much blame as possible on yourself, sure this guy died twice to the enemy laner, maybe you saying something about it could have helped him to not die, maybe roaming there to stop that could have help there's always room for improvement, then when you feel ready, get back into ranked and stay positive, If you want anymore tips or help with anything (Cause there's a lot you can learn) i know i'm not a Diamond player or anything (would probably be a bit higher if i didn't lag so much i could actually play some ranked) but i'd be more than happy to help you out/give you tips to win, i can even spectate a game or two of yours if you wanted and try to give you some tips If you really wanted (though i'm not gonna try carry you out of whatever elo you are in if you are after that i wrote this so you could improve yourself) Anyway have fun out there and i hope this helped.
thx for this it helped me out lots and im starting to climb better ty <3

: how to carry harder?
Thing is go play a different champion other then just the ones you feel comfortable with, go for more champs like Lux or Brand who arent team reliant because all in champs are more likely to get nuked and your team will be useless with you dead, and take your jungles wolves or birds when you are pushed out, assassins arent really great in bronze- only if you are really ahead so consider switching up champions that are more safe

yeah bot jungle is no fun coz the game end before you can really do anything,
