For those who don't know what this is, the Dunning-Kruger effect is when unskilled individuals suffer from a illusory superiority and mistakenly rate their skills higher than what they really are. More than 80% of League players have this issue at one point in time. I probably 'suffer' from it a lot as well but there is a fine line from thinking 100% that you are the best player since Regi and thinking that you are better than were you are placed.
Now that we have gone over that, onto the next part! Why haven't I won games? Well, it's simple. Most players think they are better so instead of working as a team, they work to get fed. Even though, statistically they will never win just on one person's shoulders. They will get a rare win here and there that boosts their ego even more, but they will never progress as a player if they think they are the only reason they are winning games. Games are won as a team, not by an individual. So when I get into games were players tend to call me 'stupid', 'autistic', etc. etc., I tend to call them out. And not just them. Every single one of my team. Why all of them? Because normally they all chime in and attempt to make me 'feel that I am bad'. Which means that they too deserve to be 'called' out. For example:
My most reason game, I was playing Miss Fortune. I know that I am not the greatest of ADCs but I don't let that stop me from playing the position... specially when my team doesn't let me play any other position. So I am 0/0/2 and my support Annie and I are attacking the tower. She stuns the enemy Sona, who is the only one at the tower. So I start attacking her, thinking that she is going to take the tower hits since she went passed the tower completely just to get the stun off. Nope, she backs off and lets me take tower damage and die to the Sona/Tower. So I say, "Annie, why start that and leave?" and she responds with, "You are stupid." and than closely followed by, "muted". Fair enough. Maybe I am stupid. That doesn't mean you aren't just as stupid, or if I dare say, less intelligent than myself. So I let it go. Then, I get into another engage. I use my ult but right as I used my ult, everyone backed off. The three targets (Graves, Lux, and Sona) are incredibly low and could easily be killed, but no pursuit? Why? I call them out. They say, "Annie is right." or, "Bad" and more terns that I wont repeat. So then I get a little red. My comments are as followed:
"1. You bitch me out for not playing the position I was forced into properly."
"2. Aatrox has fed the enemy Garen to a point of no return but has not received any flak for doing so."
"3. Annie has been stealing CS from me all game and has engaged 3 times into fights that weren't even worth getting into."
"4. Le Blanc has no clue how to give out kills instead of just coming up and taking them, literally, right in front of myself and the top laner who needs the farm/gold."
"5. Last but not least, Malphite has no gank timing what so ever and when called upon, sits on his hands and bitches about how he can't be everywhere."
Ok so maybe I was a little harsh. But most of the comments were true. When you force someone into a position, don't expect them to even be near perfect. And I can go into detail about how the rest were 100% on the point but that would take up even more of your time. Fact is, most players look at their teammates and think to themselves, "Great, another game I have to carry that is full of idiots." when instead they should be thinking about strategy and how they can make the game a positive experience for the whole team, even if it ends in a loss. There are games that end in a loss that I really enjoyed playing. But most of the time, its my own team that makes a loss unsatisfying or not fun.
So that is why I haven't been posting many results lately. I will once I get a few games that I have enjoyed, but until then, wish me luck!
