You should perhaps try updating videodriver. Otherwise reinstalling your game might work.

Winning by yourself is something that works in bronze and silver where people have little to no understanding of the game and are not good at making accurate predictions. Once you hit gold, I think that leads to a shock for most people because they thought they could carry by themselves and it turns out that you need your team to back you up. Remember *everyone* in gold can apparently carry themselves out of bronze and silver. So don't underestimate them. They have the mechanics, so now it's no longer a game of skill but a game of the mind. > > In your last game you are the *only* one with a positive score. You must have realised your teammates were falling behind. Use pings to get them to fall back, warn them from incoming threats even if they are not your laner. If you have control of the mini map, you control the biggest part of the game so get vision for yourself and your team. This is why junglers do well in gold because they can just place a pink ward on lanes that need extra protection. Other than that you had teleport. If you can predict an incoming gank on bot in example, try and counter play and pick up some kills and assists for your team. The thought that you can carry by yourself exists in every single one of your teammates because they all managed to do so before. It means your team may end up arrogant, so protect them from their own mistakes and give them the opportunity to shine. > > If you want specific pointers: > 1. ward > 2. roam at the right times > 3. objectives > cs > kills > 4. know when to defend and when to attack > 5. remember the game starts during the ban and pick phase. Ban what is strong against you and your team, play what is good against their team. Basically... > 6. Adept. You've hit quite lot good points. It's only my 2 cents from a former Irelia OTP hovering at around low diamond. PS: RIP rework ;(

As someone who used to main midlane, I'd say it's the midlaners job to watch their mana usage. Also, the buffs give more exp and value than any of the other camps. > > If the enemy has blue, I usually made sure that I'd take it from them as midlaner. If your jungler sees they have it, they may actually gank so you can get their blue like that. i agree on that but it's the junglers job too to watch the midlaners mana for upcoming ganks.
: What are the key mistakes in Golds (like me) who can't reach Platinum or higher?
It's mainly decisionmaking imo. Of course theres stuff like mechanics also, knowing limits of your champion(s) too. But it doesn't help at all, if you're unable to control objectives. Then theres people who mainly focus on one or two champions, well that's another way to effectively climb (considering you actually know your champ). Emotional discipline plays a big role, don't put blame on your teammates. It's a waste of energy and will cause you many unnecessary defeats. People are valueing kda a lot. Having bad kda doesnt mean you're bad if you got some objectives. Another effective way of climbing is to dodge games. This takes away the fun part of the game though. Some teamcomps are just impossible to win against or to win with. PS: hi catty
