Unranked elo
Playing alot of unranked games lately to learn new roles and such.

About half the Normal games I join are decent, people jungle/ward and pick good comps. The other half of the time, everyone auto locks a carry or 4 AD champs or something.

I've read online that getting out of elo hell requires YOU to carry your team....but what if everyone auto locks carries right away? Leave game lol?

Is there an unranked elo hell? Am I in it?

y'know, when this happens to me (even in ranked) ...

you just go with it... try to pick the best you can think of to compliment your 4 ranged AD carry team (or whatever it is)
use it as a practice game.. even if you lose,
you still practiced last-hitting, you still worked on game-sense and map-awareness...

there is only 1 person that you can control to direct the outcome of a game...

so as long as you work a little bit to get better, then just think of it this way, 5bads vs 4 bads and a decent player... the odds are in your favor..

another option is to just pick a 5th AD carry and have fun with it!

auto-locks carries??? Play Draft or Ranked if you are concerned about team comp.

I'm not sure I understand why you would be concerned about your normal game Elo. That's what ranked is for. If your Elo sucks in normal than just have fun stomping noobs.

Thanks for the replies!

Yes i should probably not expect Normal mode games to be any good in the first place. I'm just not strong at jungle, tank, or support yet so I want to practice those without getting flamed too hard.

There was a game I played recently where 2 people auto locked AP carries, so the rest of us said 'ALL AP ALL MID!' jokingly...well 2 of us locked in AP carries, one person grabbed a tank. We didn't go all mid, we had no jungle, and we COMPLETELY stomped the other team. It was so funny to see how people react when you break the meta. They can't think. It's funny. So think about it that way.

How many carries are actually AP? Can only think of a few off the top of my head. I guess just because you aren't listed as a carry doesn't mean you can't still carry your team.

Uh...well I completely ignore their labels in the actual game, but had like Ryze, Ziggs, Malz, Cass, and Renekton.
