So lately I've just been playing horribly and I don't know what is wrong. A week ago I was doing so well. Every game I was 150+ cs at 20 mins and just tearing through noobs. Lately, I'm lucky if I'm breaking 100 cs by 20 mins and feeding every game.

Anybody else go through this as regularly as me? It happens ALL the time for me. 1 week godmode, next week super feed.

I don't usually go through ruts like that, I'll have off games every now and again where I just can't seem to do anything right, feeding all the wrong champs and generally poor team play. And there are of course days where I look competition good, albeit infrequently xP

Best advice I can give, is either play a different game for a day, or switch modes, do tree line, or dominion, hell, do a few AI games and practice CS'ing.

I feel your pain thou, just sometimes you turn some corner and there's the enemy team to hand you your *** on a silver platter every 5 minutes. I've seen it happen to the top tier players in streams and vids too.

Insanity; a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.

If you have a role of a handful of champs that you specialize in, play those for a few games. Hopefully your higher skill level with that specific role or those champions will allow you to do better until you regain your confidence.

If you don't have any specialties at all, I'd suggest focusing your efforts on learning your strongest and favorite champions. Read guides, watch streams and play with them a lot. After a while, I think you'll notice that you play at a higher level when you're on your mains. Usually you'll notice yourself having more successful laning phases, judging damage trades more accurately and using safer positioning.

That's the best advice I can give. Whenever I'm getting frustrated with a slew of bad games, I usually revert to one of my choice champions for a few games. Playing a champion that you're experienced with also makes it easier to pinpoint your mistakes and flaws, which can turn a rut into a learning experience. :)
Thanks to Minho for the sig!

Eh, I usually lay off LoL if I happen to be doing really bad. Just take a break and watch tv or something, that way your mind can be more relaxed and you can concentrate more the next time you play LoL.

Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt_(poker)

When I lose a ranked game, I generally stop playing ranked until the next day, then it's okay. Everyone has a different tolerance level to tilt, and some people recover quicker than others. Honnestly, I'm pretty sure it applies to any competitive activity one could think of.

Get a shovel it helps break ruts...also if you lost your csing touch literally start a game with yourself or 1 friend and just practice on cs I do that every so often.

CSing alone doesn't help the pressure aspect of CSing though.

You can practice last-hitting alone. You need an opponent to practice CSing.
