    If you haven't heard about it, i can say from experience that the community team program is really fun. It allows you to play with some people, and after a given amount of time, you can be recruited onto a team, giving you a static group of people to play with.

    Ranko got a reaction from jiggy in How I avoid becoming a pinball machine! (tilting)   
    So, it seems to be tilting is a huge problem with this game, no matter what your ELO is. Now I'm not going to say that I never go on tilt, because I do, we all do, but it's how you deal with it that is what matters. I also know that sometimes my complaints seem more whiney than I attempt to make them, and it makes people think I'm tilting hard, which isn't really the case.  So, in this post I will be explaining what I do to keep tilt at bay, and keep on chugging through the end of the game. 
    ~
             First of all, you need to realize, not every game is going to go your way. There is no one who wins 100% of all games, not even the pros. The big questions is "how do you react when things stop going your way?". Aside from going into every game with a positive attitude, knowing that you are going to play your best, in my experience, and this isn't only coming from League, the best thing you can do is to immediately start with a deep breath, the second you notice you are beginning to get upset. Taking this deep breath gives you time to focus, and calm your mind, keep your breath slow and steady, and focus on remaining calm. If you are losing hard in your section, do not force fights during this time, instead wait for backup and play safe. If you are playing safe enough, the enemy is going to become more and more desperate to press the advantage they now have over you, and it's likely they will make a mistake, a mistake that only was made because you kept your cool. Now, this is only one case, the enemy isn't always going to make this mistake, and that's perfectly fine. As long as you remain calm, a good play from an ally can force things into your favor, before the enemy can get things rolling.

             Now, say you followed this and you still lost the game. Time to get upset and smash your keyboard, right? Not at all. This is when it helps to talk to someone, whether you talk about the game, or just talk about something you  are interested in. (Pro-tip, if talking about the game in a angry or hard manner is all you can do, try talking about a different subject). Talking to a friend is therapeutic, and will allow you to take your mind off of what happened. Spend 5-10 minutes talking to a friend after a bad, or hard game, and even then go get a drink, use the restroom, do anything you need to get done before sitting down to another game. Only when you feel you finally have the game behind you should you hit that enter game button, and from there on it's back to playing like normal, following the original steps to stay calm. 
    ~
              By no means is the post supposed to be talking as an expert in any manner, just simply sharing some friendly advice as a relatively calm person. But if I can help even one person by posting my method to avoid tilting, then my job is done. Feel free to add your own methods here as well, and see if we can't end tilt all together. (Yes I know this is a near impossible goal, but hasn't the entire point of my post been to stay positive? Why stop now?)

    Being that this is true, shouldn't this be removed from being a "Sticky" thread? 
     
    Just seems as though it will throw people off if they come in here, not knowing what we do and see a thread detailing things that are afferent from what we are actually doing.
