Instead, you should be looking at the game like, hey, here is where Warwick initiated, I was slow to follow up and he died for nothing because of it. Here is where I should have zoned them out of baron and not let them steal like they did. Stuff like that. The game is much more than score...Some of the best games I've played I've gone negative, but was the reason our team won.
yeah ive started to notice these things more and more, that instead of just saying 'my team was bad' or 'that top player fed' ive started to realize that even if i am the bot ad carry/support there are still things i can do about it before it becomes a major problem. i dont follow a pro scene or anything, and i guess i would benefit a lot from reviewing my own replays, but i just have a better sense of what could, what does, and what is, going to go wrong while i am at a certain position.
also if im running into trouble with a bad matchup, its happened where i saw tryndamere and lee sin picked on the enemy team, so i countered tryndamere at solo top and it just happened that lee sin was playing top and i foolishly (by a sliver) lost a few crucial exchanges due to being inexperienced vs lee sin top. that game ended in disaster because the 3-man queue completely ignored me the whole time, and then seemed to not understand why they lost (rage rage rage).
