My biggest losing streak was a 8 lose streak and recently I had another 3 lose streak.
In ALL of these games, my score was either neutral or positive, but NEVER negative. However, in all of them, there was always at LEAST one person on a ridiculously low score (for example in my most recent game, the adc went 1/11).
I feel that I am a lot more knowledgeable than many of my team mates (I don't mean this in an arrogant way but many of them don't seem to know basics like objectives > kills, taking a drag after killing both in bot lane at level 6, backing off once taking inhibitor and on low HP, not chasing, warding the right places, don't try to duel a Jax, don't try to split push unless the rest of the team is taking another objective simultaneously, etc)
Now I'm aware that I'm not a perfect player, I make mistakes and in every single game, there is ALWAYS something I could have done better. However, I don't often get caught out or say push a lane with no vision etc. The mistakes I usually make are things like forgetting that I have a smite charge to use in a team fight, forgetting to use Face of the Mountain on my adc when duelling their bot lane, forgetting that I have a potion leftover and not using it when that could have saved me.
However, I feel very demotivated at the moment to continue playing ranked games. I don't mind losing a game here and there because of a ridiculously low scoring member of the team, since that just happens sometimes, but when this happens so many times in a row, it does make ranked feel much less enjoyable for me because I feel 'helpless'. My most recent example of something like this was when I was 24/3 and the rest of my team mates were around 3/12, 0/9, 1/11 etc. That game I still lost.
I often see people saying that if I belong in a certain tier, then I'll get there eventually after some number of games, but I'm starting to believe this less and less the more of these kinds of games I play.
Is this normal and do you perhaps have any suggestions? Am I just seeing things the wrong way? I play either top, jungle or support. I am almost always either jungle or support though.
