I wish I didn't suck at League anymore

Although I haven't been playing long, I can already see the difference in my skill and other people's skills, when we are on the same level. I wish I didn't suck at League, but I don't know how to improve. I feed too much and I'm not skilled and too shy to go for the kill. I've tried playing ADC {{champion:22}} , support {{champion:25}} and top lane {{champion:122}} , but I feel that I keep letting my team down. Simply watching videos of others playing or reading articles doesn't seem to help me. Now, I think that I don't even really understand the game and how to play it. Even though I'm really bad at the game, I still enjoy it. Well, other than getting yelled at. I just have one more question: can you tell if a player is purposefully playing badly or if they are genuinely bad? If you read this, thank you. I'm just ranting here because no one I know understands LoL. If you have any suggestions, I would like to know them. *This post took inspiration from the linked post.

You should check out the summoner school at reddit, probably more people there who can give you advice. http://reddit.com/r/summonerschool {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

Anyone can make multiple accounts. This is my third. **ClaraMidnight \(NA\) said:** I think that I don't even really understand the game and how to play it. If you're a genuine level 12, of course you don't, it's impossible. If you continue to play the game, you'll someday understand how little did you know. **ClaraMidnight \(NA\) said:** Even though I'm really bad at the game, I still enjoy it. That's the spirit! :) **ClaraMidnight \(NA\) said:** Well, other than getting yelled at. You can always mute someone or everybody. **ClaraMidnight \(NA\) said:** I just have one more question: can you tell if a player is purposefully playing badly or if they are genuinely bad? You mean like someone's faking it to be a bad player? I don't think you can tell, unless he suddenly starts to play like a god. **ClaraMidnight \(NA\) said:** If you have any suggestions, I would like to know them. You're super duper new, don't get impatient. It takes a lot of games to get somewhere if you don't have any prior moba experience. Don't play blind games, only draft. Use the practice tool from time to time, play around in it, practice last hitting, combos, flashes, warding, getting dragons and buffs. Practice against AI. Try out different champs/roles, but start to focus on a role and a small champion pool afterwards. Learn how to play from behind, learn how to play safe. Don't focus on winning, focus on improving. Enjoy yourself!
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. This really helped feel more confident in myself. If you're ok with answering one more question, then may I ask why you chose to create a new account? Or why other people would create more accounts? The only reason I can think of is to troll lower level players, but I don't believe that that's the case for all players

The only reason I can think of is to troll lower level players, but I don't believe that that's the case for all players Sometimes people are stuck on their rank and make a new account thinking that the MMR system and matchmaking is holding them back, sometimes they just want to stomp lower ranked people, sometimes they got banned there are many reasons someone might make a new account. If you really want to improve this is my discord Ceapi#5986 and we could go over replays and see how you can improve, I am plat 3 at the moment which is still not that high but if you are interested let me know.
I understand lol. I suck too. I'm trying to get better. I practice in ARAM because its aram and theres no one to let down. People don't seem to care so much there. But I'm hella timid too because I get flamed on all the time. I like the game and I want to play more but don't want to let the team down/have to be carried all the time either. you can always /muteall and then just focus objectives. The guy on LCS said today even if youre losing your lane (I think this was specific to top) Try to focus CS, try not to die and defend the turret as much as you can. The rest are kind of nuances that you'll figure out later.
