: Have you ever thought about trying a different role? You know, back in the day when I was just stuck in silver all the time, I mained ADC. For a few seasons. I kept thinking top lane looked pretty easy. Champs looked easy, they were tankier so I would be less punished for mistakes, harder to gank, etc. So I made a smurf for top lane only. I got Gold in like 35 games. I just understood top lane and how to play most of the champs up there. I know you seem to like mid, but maybe trying to be a 1v5 Katarina mid-lane player just isn't for you. Or any of those Assassin-type midlaners. Maybe you are better off JG, or Support, or Top. See I know I would gain more elo if I just played top lane. http://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=treedayban Look at those season 4 top lane win-rates. Hell, look at current Sion. 100%. But, I dont care about gaining elo as much as I care about having fun. And I have fun teamfighting on ADCs. Hell, right now I'm having fun playing fill every game. Which means like 60% support, 30% jg, 10% everything else. So I just play what I want. So, maybe do some self-evaluation on why being a mid-lane player, or even Kat player, is holding you back. You know why ADC holds me back? I suck at laning in a 2v2. I also, have little idea of what to do most of the game, outside of teamfighting. I can admit these things. I have little agency in a 2v2. I can never push any sort of advantage like I can in a solo lane, or even as support. I have more lane agency as a support. I have more map pressure and awareness in every other role than ADC. Sometimes I find myself just wandering around, getting cs, following teammates, hoping for the best. While I'm on support making plays, tping as a top laner, etc. I have impact I created. I can even see this in BETTER ADCs I face, who seem to get more work done when I don't. BUT, I like playing ADC. I enjoy the mechanical aspect of it, so I continue to main it, despite me hurting myself LP-wise. I could just go play Sion top or whatnot and gain elo.
I really enjoy Kat due to her mechanical aspects and outplay potential. It just feels bad when a game stretches out too long because I failed to close it out and their 0/6 garen wins out of sheer tankyness and scaling. Perhaps the root of my issue is that playing assassins in low ELO isn't very realistic. The longer games stretch the tougher it gets. Maybe I have to either learn how to close a game, or how to order my team around enough to get them to close the game. I would like to play mid however. I find its the one position that I can consistently enjoy playing over and over. JG and ADC start to become a grind after a while...

: Is there a key to climbing or is it luck?
I've had 3 4v5's in the past week. Its like riot wants me in bronze. I had a 70% WR at one point. I can't find a place where I can consistently carry. Either I'll do well and then try to get my team fed but then we throw and lose, or our team will get shit on from the get go. It feels impossible to win. I guess I'm forever a bronze player. If after 2 seasons, I still stuck, I'll probably never be even decent at the game

: I need help picking a main role
Is anybody else finding the preseason a giant clusterfuck where winning is basically impossible. Or is my mmr putting me with idiots that are even worse at this game then I am. I don't carry. I don't win lane. I don't win games. I don't know how to do any of this... and I'm seriously doubting I'll ever learn.

I picked adc. Seems like the second hardest role ;_;

: I need help picking a main role
I think that part of my issue might be that I die way to much which I do. I have upwards of 7+ deaths each game. The problem I'm having is that if I don't play super aggressive in lane then I can't get a lead by just bitch farming to help my team out. However, if I do player super aggressive I'll get shit on half the time but a jungler that camps. I'm having trouble finding a balance.

I've been trying this with adc. However, I don't know what I did to my mmr but I'm gaining 8 lp per win and I think I am going to lose silver soon. I do my best to win these games but its hard when your top lane is 0/5 in 7 minutes. I don't know what to do. If I can't even hold silver I might as well just quit the game.

: Help getting better (I'm low silver)
Thanks for all the advice. I think I might try to one-trick draven since he is a champ that I don't end up getting bored playing. I also don't think that my mechanics with him are too bad. I think I need to focus on cs, having the right mindset, and transitioning from a reactive to a proactive player
