Initially he was getting frustrated by the mistakes that our team was making and was starting to rage a bit. I reminded him that the rest of the team was not playing on Smurf accounts and that we actually needed guidance to improve our play. He accepted this challenge and took on the roll of a positive team leader. We were able to win the game, which before the change, I don't feel we would have.
If more people followed this kind of thinking, League of Legends would have the best online community ever
Maybe it's time for more smurf accounts to follow your example. They're getting pissed off at the atrocious state of Ranked? Maybe they need to step up and show the noobs and the teamwork-disinclined* exactly how it's done
More people following this kind of thinking will
lead to a better game and a better community, I know we can do it.
We just need a big, loud kick-start to begin the trend.
