I have games like that all the time. you can replace the names of the champs and it will fit almost half of the games I play. All winable before my team gets too impatient and thinks they can 1v5 as the AP caster of ranged AD. Too many times have I stood back and watched as my team constantly throws and blames everyone but themselves.
It's funny because players on the other team make mistakes just as often as players on the other team. And even (gasp) you make mistakes too.
When your teamate makes a mistake, he's an idiot and a troll and is straight up costing you elo.
When an opponent makes a mistake, you outplayed them and it happened because of how good you are.
When you make a mistake, it was your teamates fault for not warding/baiting you/not ganking enough/feeding.
