1) You need to let your team know beforehand that you're going to try out an unconventional build. If you don't say anything and then start building strange things people will think you're trolling. Because that's what trolls do. They don't mention what they're building, and then you find an Ashe with a Void Staff. You know. "So the arrow is OP lawlzies"
2) Something in game five caught my interest:
Varus [00:00:13] teemo is top
Varus [00:00:16] and going hybrid
Varus [00:00:21] which is slang for awful
This was said before you went with the MBR/Stinger build on Varus. I mean. If you're going to go for unconventional builds, should you really be knocking someone else's? It seems hypocritical at worse, or at the least a confusing message to the team when you follow it up with something strange.
3) When using an unusual champ as a support - gotta make sure it's okay with your lane partner or at least tell him. Remember he's in the lane with you as well. "Is it alright if I try something different for a support?" Some people might say no. Some people might say "sure! It's normal! lets try!" But at least then you won't have everyone blaming you under the sun.
Well, when I do an unusual support, I offer to support as that person in advance, and take it as tacit agreement that its alright if everyone picks everything but support. I have done quite well with them in the past, and even manage to win the greater part of games that don't have afkers with them.
With regards to the Teemo comment. That was an enemy Teemo, mentioned in teamchat. I mentioned this as encouragement to my team. You will notice that Top did quite well that game.
Anyway, this is getting away from my point. I was clearly reported and warned for unusual builds and doing poorly. That is the issue I have here.
