I know that there are a lot of topics like this one, but i am hardly focusing of improving myself, so i dont care what was posted over there (someone might found this usefull).
-The first thing is that i dont think i am better than 1200 elo, (im stuck on it.. peak 1300, now 1100), There are games where i can do like 200cs 22min... and games where im doing 50cs 15min.
So the 1st thing is Farm, how to improve it (Tried custom alot, but playing custom is a lot different than playing normal games)

-Second thing is overall playstyle. What mechanisms should i learn? i mean like roaming,baiting,positioning (thats what im calling mechanisms)
I can be 20/0 cho but i cant use the "snowball" to carry the team.

-Normal/Ranked ..? What should i play if i want to focus on improving myself?

-Im always joining ranked with a feeling like: Oh okay, ill try it now, maybe i will get pros in team and maybe i wont fail.
And when i have the feeling like, Now ill carry this shiz... Im maybe getting those kills but im mostly outfarmed ... 50cs 10min, or Im getting the farm and 0 kills.
And when im getting both i cant "use" it. As i said.

-Last question, whats the right meaning of Glass Cannon?

Thats it, thank to everyone who will try to help me,

To improve yourself play normal draftpick or ranked. (draftpick is prefered because you won't lose elo while learning)

Glasscannon means a very large cannon made out of glass which makes it shoot really hard but easy to break.
Glasscannon build is a full damage build, every item you take is there to increase your damage to the maximum. Glasscanon is typically build on ad carries and burst/mana using mages (Veigar, Leblanc etc)

Couple of gameplay tips:

Pressing S will stop your autoattack animation, this comes in handy when you launch an attack too soon and will miss a last hit because of that. It allows you to better time the attack.

Warding, always buy atleast one ward each back unless you are the ad carry. 75 gold will make you lane a LOT safer and will ultimately allow you to get that 75 gold back easily because you can be more daring when taking cs. It will also prevent the enemy from ganking you and gaining 300 gold from killing you. Overall a good investment I'd say.

Smartcasting, make sure you master this on your main champions for ranked, it helps a ton once you learn it properly.

Don't play with locked screan, you will have very limited map awareness. Watch the map whenever you have the opportunity, I glance at it naturally but if you have trouble with that try making a deal with yourself, every two lasthits you will look at the minimap, or something like that.

You're getting 50 cs by 15 minutes and have been playing for over a year?

Do you have lag causing bad last hitting?
Is your mouse comfortable/ not glitchy?
Have you tried pressing A+left click target to last hit?
Have you tried using attack damage runes?
Is your FPS 60 or higher? If not, lower graphics. fps below 40 will seriously influence your gameplay. Also consider upgrading your pc.

With a+click you are able to click creeps with more precision, you get a nice little crosshair. When clicked in empty space you will attack the creep closest to you. (i never said shift or alt, donno where you got that from lol)

Your csing seems very inconsistent which means you probably have a hard time csing in certain situations, what situations are most troublesome for you? If I know that I'll be able to give you more specific tips.

A+click makes targeting easier, I don't use it often myself though. Lots of people use it, it's just preference.

Anyways I can't help you with the little information you're providing. How often do you play a league of legends match a day?

I added you, you can look up my masteries,runes,history..whatever but try to dont blame me or something (i know ya wont) and help me instead.
Lets start with that i am an bad - average player.
Btw: I can have highest farm in game (1200+- elo) but its still only like 100cs 18-20min. Which is not really good.
In early game i am farming well. but than, i think im recalling in bad time or .. i dunno.
At the start of the game i can las hit like every minion in 2-3 waves. Then shiz. happens. and i can be highly outfarmed.
