Help from Elo Hell
Hello there. Last season I started playing ranked games since i had just reached level 30, and my elo started at 1170 and while i played it dropped to 980. I know my elo dropping is not 'because of a bad team" but because i don't know how to play or be a team player.

So I would like to get some suggestions and tips so i don't go down in the elo ladder next season. thanks in advance.

Stay calm, communicate well, be helpful, and most important, stay positive! Positive players help their entire team feel better, which usually translates to better play. If nothing else, everyone will at least feel better.

Ward and improve map awareness. Wards aren't just the job of the support.

Simple...practice. Don't play a Ranked game until after you play at least 3 normals within the last 12 hours, regardless of how high or low your elo is. This will reduce the chance of losing Elo from being rusty and give you a chance to play champs you aren't really the best at without your team flaming you.

Learn how to play/counter every champ to avoid being matched up against someone you haven't seen before. This is will also broaden your skill level to champs you probably never thought you'd do well with before.

learn how to play every lane. You don't have to the best at everything, but learn how to play them so you can't be forced into a position you haven't done before. If you say you have no good solo top champs or carries...go buy some. I would highly recommend you learn how to jungle properly, as this not only will help you with ganking lanes, but also teach you proper map awareness that is vital for any lane or role

WARD!!!! sight wards cost about 2 1/2 minions and pink wards cost about 4, so there's very little excuse why you shouldn't be able to pick up at least one. Buying Vision wards also gives you the bonus effect of being able to destroy enemy wards, leaving them in the dark. 1 vision ward > 3 extra health / mana pots.

dont practice in ranked games.

only play ranked with champs that you are very comfortable winning with.

those losses with practice champs will set you back a long ways
