About Elo Hell...
I play Janna a lot, and I'd like to get the Victorious Janna skin, but I can't seem to get over 1300 Elo, much less getting to 1500 for the skin. I do well in my lane 90% of the time, but for the love of Demacia, my teammates are almost always awful. I try my best to keep them together, and help them, but there's usually so much arguing, and raging, and it just gets ridiculous. Any tips on how I can get my Elo up quickly, or how to keep the team together better. Should I dodge games where people won't communicate, and compromise, and if so, how many games should I dodge before the time gets really high? I'm also on a very strict time limit, and I can only play about 1 or 2 games during the weekdays, so every game is crucial. Thank you for any and all help.

Haahahaha, I know how you feel its all about luck, I hit 1400 elo yesterday. Boom lost because my team fed and because my mid was ap ezreal (dropped back to 1300).... But anyhow, I would recommend playing ADC/Top/Mid. So you are obviously able to carry. This would be the best option, but in 1200 to 1300 you are very unlikely to find a good support (as adc). About the dodging, like I said its all about luck. Even if they are friendly in champion select they may suck (vice versa). Same goes with people that talk trash in champion select. BTW look at Lolking for their rankings (score) hope that helped.

I've been playing ranked for a couple days. I'm an extremely skilled gamer and 200 games were more than enough to get used to League of Legends on my road to level 30. Been going 90% in ranked elo games so far even in so called "elo hell" that people keep talking about.

I'm finding so far the best way to raise your ELO so far is to que dodge when it's obvious someone is outright retarded.

Someone not communicating and picking a role that someone has already asked for? Que dodge. They WILL feed.

Someone picks a retarded champion like AP Teemo bottom instead of an adc or a Volibear top? Que dodge. They WILL feed.

Someone does some seriously questionable bans like Teemo Ashe etc. etc... Que dodge. They WILL feed.

Someone has issues typing proper English for reasons other than being foreign? Que dodge. They WILL feed.

Unless you are really itching for a game just stick by these principles and your games will go very smooth. It's usually very easy to tell the derps right from the drafting stage.
