You say you are playing on a smurf right? Then you're playing with low levels and you can't expect them to be good or even very knowledgeable about playing the game.
I don't expect much from lower levels honestly, as I understand the game can take forever to learn. I mainly use it to try champs I've never played before.
But one of the things it didn't take me long to realize when I first started playing was that getting killed is always a bad thing. That and when I do something once or twice and it doesn't work in the least, then I stop doing it. That's with any game. I'm not sure why it's lost on the League crowd at any level.
ETA: The comment was directed at the League population in general, not necessarily lower leveled players.
