Low Elo problems

Posted by Janitsu on May 9, 2013 9:57pm +Rep

So, I usually encounter this problem when I'm playing; Nobody but I gets ward (maining support nowdays luls) and when I am simply not able to ward, people blame me and tell everybody on the enemy's team to report me. Especially if I tell them this thing: (A direct copy of the chat)

Janitsu(Leona): I can't ward, and if you want wards so much, why don't you open shop
Janitsu(Leona): And go to consumables
Janitsu(Leona): Stop being ***** and actually get those wards instead of flaming
Iisurmom(Darius): i not support luls
Iisurmom(Darius): reprot lena no ward

So, They usually say that it is my fault that they can't get any ****ing wards. IMO everybody should get wards, but support should get most. This is the problem with me ATM.

What do you think? Who is supposed to get wards?

If one sight ward allows you to farm an extra creep wave in safety or saves you from getting killed by a surprise gank/ill-advised facecheck, then it has paid for itself several times over. Similarly, if one Vision Ward lets you kill an enemy ward, then it paid for itself immediately. Wards enable you to zone the enemy more aggressively, and counterwarding lets you punish the enemy hard.

Purchasing wards literally causes you to earn more money per minute as a result of the above, I don't understand why people don't do this more often.

Yeah, I have played plenty of games where top pushes and has no ward and then all of a sudden: gets killed by jungler. I agree with the cost-efficiency because I usually get more farm myself if I have a ward at top lol. I just can't understand why people think that it's support's job only to get wards.

Funny how people keep forgetting that supports doesn't CS'ing and still pressuring them to buy wards.

Warding is suppose to be a team thing.

Support should ward more but every other role should at least have 1 ward per recall.

I mean, it's only 75 gold! stop being so stingy people!!

Actually i don't really see people farming at low ELO, just dive for kills mindlessly. But repeating what better players say even if they don't have a clue.

I actually remember in one game getting Mobi-boots on Taric just to ward the top lane because he was dying to jungle ganks and not getting wards. If no one gets them, just buy more and pink the **** out of the enemy. **** support items then; it really wins games.

I've been playing PvP on my smurf. I tell my teammates to get wards after showing them that wards WORK. I also yell at the enemy team for their lack of wards (yes, even the SUPPORT doesn't ward). I'll ask them where THEY think a good place would be to place a ward.

Maybe try things like "I need some help, since I can't get gold for wards. Can one of you guys help me by picking up some?" or "I'd really like to ward dragon, but I can't afford a pink :(" Emotes help a lot; people think you're a girl and are more willing to drop their ka-ching.

Hey, I did a "Spectators OP" on my friend, who was jungling and low on wards. Told them "If you love your jungler, get me wards? :*"

They got wards.

Hi guy , i think a may help you.

I play sometimes with friends who are in elo hell as they call it.
I always have fun with them because i always go like 8-0-10 , simpely because they don't ward (yeah and i outplay they :)).
(PS: I'm plat.)

Mostly i play middle when i'm smurfing.
Why ?

-Most junglers camp mid , and not everyone can deal with that.
-You can kinda carry hard
-You can help lanes effictive
-You can ward a lot because of your waveclear

But why i normally win there is simply , they dont ward THEIR jungle.

If i'm mid , i always try 2 ward their red , so i normally get a kill at lvl 2 or something.
Than their jungler will go gank more because he lost his buffs. What means YOU can countergank , and they are effective because they dont have wards.

In low elo try 2 be in their jungle as much as possible dont go in like a tard.

If people in your team don't buy wards, then the enemy is also unlikely to do so (from experience).

Even so, getting camped in your own jungle isn't fun, even if neither team has wards.

By mastrer1000 on May 11, 2013 7:59am +Rep
honestly, why would you buy wards on low elo if not for yourself? nobody is watching the map anyway :DD

Buy a ward, save a life.

It's really that simple, and yet some people still don't understand it.

As a support so long as you keep wards up on Dragon and Baron, then there is no need for anyone to be upset over lack of ward coverage. Personally when I support I just try my best to ward everywhere and just assume no one else is going to ward. Such is the nature of solo queue.

Uh. this is an obvious question, that mid and top and jungle should all buy wards. However, it does not help your team when you call them *****s for not buying wards, that just makes people mad. Ask politely and they'll agree.
Gamers4Fun By Gamers4Fun on May 22, 2013 6:00am +Rep
Totally agree , if i first b as jungl i grab some HP pots , Madrors/Spirit Stone , and 2/3 wards
