: What is your highest elo ? I don't think you could be that bad. If you wish you can add me. I'm not the best either but I would like to help you. We could play some games together.
I don't know. I don't care about my elo, any ranked games I win I just got carried because I'm useless

: Champion mechanics and being better at the game are two different things. You may play the champion perfectly but in the end the decisions you make in the game decide the winner.
But I'm bad at champion mechanics too. I'm not good at anything - hence the title

: The only way to improve is to practice and if you want to get good at certain champion as I said you need to practice a lot. I remember when I started playing Zed in season 3, I was so bad and got flamed almost every game, now I'm pretty good with him. It took me several months to master him. Playing a lot and practice is the key. Good luck !
So why am I not good after years of practice
: > I've been playing for long enough to understand the game somewhat on a theoretical level but I completely fall apart when it comes to applying anything. Regarding this, could you go into more specifics what exactly you mean with you understand the game on a theoretical level. Which concepts exactly do you understand. For example, do you know the following: * 3 Ways of wave controlling and how to counter them (Freeze, Slow Push, Fast Push) * Trading Stance and Retaliation Trade * Proper Vision * Proper Roaming * Minion Crash Dive * Proper Itemization * Team Compositions, Duos and Combos > I have no main champion because I'm basically equally garbage at everyone Is there any champ you've at least played ~ 30 games on. Before that you can hardly judge whether you are good or bad on the champion. As for choosing a main champion, Is ther no champion of which you just like how he plays? For example I really like Ahri, Syndra and orianna, because they all use orbs to fight and their champion designs are rather unique and nice looking. > I can't improve at all. I can tell when something is my fault but I can't tell how to improve or fix it. If I'm always dying to ganks, I don't know what else to do because if I'm too careful I get zero farm and lose lane anyways. Dying to ganks is pretty easy to stop. First of all, try to always be aware of where your enemy jungler is. It's not that hard to keep track of him if it's properly warded (which yes i know, is a huge problem in lower elo's). But even then. if you see your enemy playing overly aggressive/timid or changing his playstyle, it usually means their jungler is somewhere close. Also, if you don't know where the enemy jungler is don't play pushed in and don't engage on your enemy laner. (Unless you are confident you can kill him fast enough and escape a potential gank alive.) You can play carefull and still get all the farm by freezing the wave just in front of your tower, out of tower range. (Controlling Minion Waves: Freeze)
Trust me, I can tell that I'm bad at these champions. You don't feed every game on champions you're good at.
: what about malzahar support?velkoz?Fiddlesticks?Galio?Ziggs?
Doesn't really matter if I'm trash at them anyways.
: Don't take it that way,it is never bad to get help especially from more experienced players. Getting help from these kind of players will help a lot because they can help you see stuff from different angles, and yes many wants to be paid for their time,and not all are that good and worth paying (personal research). No one is putting a label on us except ourselves especially when it goes down hill. just to give you a different angle... you said you played for a while and you feel you are stuck and stuff not improving but you came here on the newbie forum to get help,does that put as you said a label on you in the negative direction in one way. Put as i see it, you want to improve and you came here because you know when you are stuck you have to go back to basics,and that is putting a label as well put in a good way :) .. no matter what we do we will always be labeled. But what counts is a will to learn and improve to make stuff better. conventional you mean supports like sona,soraka,thresh etc? and not brand or lux?
To be fair, I'm not too fond of those two either.
: I don't know if you saw my other comment further down. Seems a coach could be a good idea for you or if the game had a very negative impact on you then you should take a break for a while and do something else. While being on a break you don't have to leave the league world completely, what you can do is to improve your macro by watching tour games and watch pro players and compare good and bad,what do they do you don't etc. There is no 1 day fix. What lane or lanes do you like? What lane fits you the most that is. What style you like aggressive or passive/safe?
I don't know. Coaching always seemed like something that screamed "I can't improve by myself" which just isn't a label I want attached to me. I guess I enjoy support. I like 2v2 lanes, and not having to focus on farming means I die to ganks less. But I don't enjoy any conventional support champions.
: It isn't really that much on champs the biggest part is the macro and how well you use it. Both macro and micro can be improved, both are needed but the more important is the macro. With high macro,micro will come with time and and you can play any champs but the favorites is the ones where you will stand out the most with.
I don't know who to play though. I don't really have fun with anyone anymore. Because I do badly with all of them.
: Umm, if this is your main account, then you're being waaay too hard on yourself. You're level 11. A lot of the skill in this game comes from a) mechanics, which you will only pick up by putting in dozens of hours on a champ to understand their windows of power and their exact damage numbers; and from b) general game knowledge, which is really hard to explain and mostly comes from the subtle things you pick up by just playing and learning. To get better at league you have to play it. You can learn things from youtube and guides, but in the end, there is no shortcut to this. Put in the hours and you'll get better eventually. For now, find one champ you enjoy. Not one that you're good at, one that u enjoy. And then just keep playing it. If you want to, look up guides on youtube for that champ, but you'll only really learn to play by actually trying and failing to apply those things until u finally succeed.
It's also impossible to enjoy a champion I'm trash with

It isn't my main. I've been playing for a few years now.
: Hi mate How long exactly have you been playing?
