Bad Habits & Things You Do (in-game)

Note: I’m putting this topic in here because I would assume it’s a “game moment” and not exactly “off-topic” as it still relates to in-game, but it doesn’t exactly fit into either 5v5 or 3v3 because it could be for any game mode I suppose. Move it to wherever you think it fits.

So, after reading over some posts and topics, in particular misclicking scout cams and potions - I was wondering if anyone (else) had bad in-game habits?

I’ll give you a personal scenario of mine I always seem to do at some point.

I’ll be battling an opponent with low health, and I’m chasing. Or maybe my teammate has low health, or, maybe I’m killing a health treant and I’m anticipating being healed. Maybe I’m a captain, I’m in a pickle and can’t help my carry who’s got low health and I pray they’re going to heal themselves. You get the idea.

So I use my potion. Complete knee-jerk reaction, and waste it. This often kills the crab.

Sometimes I’ll double-tap the quick-buy icon and buy the displayed item twice. That’s also a doozy. But this only makes the crab stronger.

Any of you have anything similar?

After ‘buy defense’ ping removed, I always repeatedly recommend Aegis and RB to teammates from the shop tab. Cost me many times but can’t really stop.

I always forget to shop. Especially in 5vs5 and especially if I’m roaming. I don’t die as much in 5vs5 and always forget to visit the river shops so I end up with a stockpile of gold :frowning:

Sometimes I hit FoR just as my teammate dies…total waste of a fountain
And then there’s the panic-hit-all-the-actives-my-teammate-is-dying reaction :haha:


My personal favorite is when I’m playing roam captain and I’ve already fountained one of my teammates who is still busy dying … and I hit my own flask, even though I’m already at full health, because I’m … trying to share it? Idek … :lyra:


When I play wp Skye but with a cp play style, and then realize why my A, and other abilities aren’t doing any damage.

This is so me when I started playing her WP path.

Sometimes i do bad thing when playing Lyra. Just like this picture. Lmfao10424622_1331013126909008_4465778295685775360_n


Oh boi…I don’t even remember how many times I must’ve done this xD
I guess it’s part of "my teammate is dying let’s spam activables"
It happens to me with Atlas as well…
My Skye was on half health against a celeste, I panicked and pressed Atlas to reduce the celeste’s attack speed…

I’ve also totally done this. Nice.

Yes this is exactly in the same light as my OP. I’m thinking “heal!” And I see my flask and my mind goes “HEAL?” and then my teammate dies during my heal animation. :ok_hand:

I like reading item descriptions when I’m respawning… Which leads to messed up quick buys.

I’ve bought fountain on carries.

I should probably turn off quick buy… But it’s so useful most of the time. :upside_down_face:

Haha I found myself doing that same thing yesterday. Take my potion I don’t need it!

Also I spend way too much time in the shopping screen at the jungle stores, I usually die once a game not noticing someone is whacking on me.

  • Taking too long to shop
  • oh crap my team is dying SPAM THE ACTIVATABLES NOW
  • Running away instead of fighting even though i have the advantage
  • (When playing kestrel) “lemme just move over here, oh wait nvm i revealed myself from stealth”
