Hello, fellow Summoners,
Back when I STARTED this game, (around the release of Lux, give or take) I played Twisted Treeline. I selected that map to play because I had no idea what I was doing and there were less people to fight at once. Eventually I became tired of the Tryndamere spam, or the Mundo spam, and moved to Summoner's Rift, which I now play 99.8% of the time. The other .02% has been recently divided between Twisted Treeline maybe once a week and then 6 games last night, and also ARAMs. Also, people will see I play Co-op - I am trying to ease new friends into this game and the way I do it is to let them practice cfhamps in bots. I never play without new friends.
The point of all this is, when I left TT I was probably level 20 or so. Still completely unseasoned compared to what I am now. And coming back to the new TT, I am finding it very frustrating. Here's why:
-If my team goes damage, the enemy picks 3 tanks. Somehow their damage outdoes ours, and we die
-If my team goes tanky, then assassins are on the enemy team, and they molest us and out-tank our damage and we die
-If my team goes a mix, like a squishy mage, a tank and an AD carry/bruiser, we get stomped by something else similar, or any of the other two combinations.
Now I know the community's salivating at the ability to give me a snarky response: The only common factor is YOU, friend! First off, if that's the ONLY advice you have for me, we're not friends. Second, I feel blind pick is somewhat screwing me, as I can't see the enemy team's strategy and am now used to playing with draft pick instead. But thirdly and most importantly, what are my team and I doing wrong? It feels like I'm going to have more fun and success in life slamming my junk in a door because no matter what team comp I choose, the enemy seems to stomp us - even if last game the roles were reversed and we lost then too.
Any friendly advice is appreciated.
