League of legends is a very versatile game. And your chances of winning the game and climbing the ranked ladder depends on multiple variables.
The games can be won by your high mechanical skill set in champions, in-game macro knowledge, team management, or by perfect objective calls. But sometimes, no matter what you do, the games seem to slip out of your hands little by little. Maybe you are just having a hard time in the CS department, missing picks by mere seconds, or making the wrong calls that lead your team to brutal ACE.
The good news is, you are not the only one who deals with this issue, and there are some things that you can do while dealing with a bad game in a league of legends.
Controlling your emotions and avoid getting tilted
The first thing you should do is try to calm yourself and try not to get tilted. League of Legends is a team game, and when it goes to the late game, anything can happen.
So instead of raging and griefing when you get ganked and die overextending 4 times in a row, just calm down and hug your tower. As long as they are not Faker, they WILL eventually break the freeze and push. So you can farm under a tower and hope for a comeback.
Help your team
You always have to remember that this is a team game. So you have to rely on others and prepare yourself to get carried by your teammates.
When we fall behind, many of us follow the same pattern of calling out our jungler and keep fighting the enemy. And this is a really bad idea.
What you should do instead is letting your jungler know that your lane can not be won anymore. And ganking your lane may result in your enemy getting two kills and getting even more fed. So instead of coming to your lane, he should go pressure other lanes and get them a lead.
Following this advice is crucial regardless of the situation of the game. Positive reinforcement is the key to you winning more games. Just because you are falling behind or having a bad game does not make it okay to flame others.
If you get toxic, your teammates may lose their positive mindset, start losing their lanes and make bad decisions. As a result, you will lose LP.
If you think you are losing because of your team and they are making bad calls, either be vocal about it and take the lead or just follow them and try to make the best out of the situation.
Remember that all you want from the game is to have a great time and win. And so do your teammates. So being nice and supportive will always help you out in the long run.
So to sum it all up, if you are having a bad game try to keep your emotions in check, depend on your team to get carried and give them a positive vibe so your overall performance as a team gets better.
And if you feel that you are way too tilted for more than 2 or 3 games, taking a break for a while is also a great idea. Not only will that make your game more enjoyable when you come back, but it will also refresh your mindset.
