Tips on getting out of ELO Hell..
 
This year is the first year I am really playing Solo Queue. I am an AD Carry. However, every time I play a Solo Queue, someone refuses to support, or they fail miserably, someone goes afk, or starts to Troll.

Any tips, besides winning of course, to get the freak out of ELO Hell. It's tough 800+ ELO...

If you don't like the way supports in your Elo bracket play, there are 4 roles besides ADC.

I recommend 3 things to get out of this ELO bracket.

1) Buy Wards. If you find you don't have any worth while support or that no one is buying wards, just buy 1 or 2 every time you go back. Being able to see a gank Before it happens will save you a lot.
2) Farm Effectively. Kills are nice, but currently a kill is equal to about 20 minions. If you watch High ELO matches, you'll notice most of the time they try to effectively farm up in lane, and that minion farming can be the difference between just having 2 doran's blades and a zeal instead of 2 doran's blades and a phantom dancer, along with a BF Sword.
3) Minimize the amount of times you die. That gives the enemy alot of gold, and typically the team that has more gold all together wins the game through having better items. When you get killed by an enemy, that increases the gold pool for the entire team, and causes you to lose gold and experience through farming creeps and being apart of team battles.

One thing you could do if you are really interested in getting better is to watch either pros or find effective youtube vids online that help teach some of these concepts. Personally, I recommend you watch Ciderhelm's "Learn the League" video series, or ColbyCheeze's "Summoner Academy." Both will give you effective tips on how to play the game more effectively. I hope that helped :)

I know that. Usually it is taken, because of my poor ELO. I have also been playing ADC since season 1, and am highly experienced in that role.

Play your best Champions. Don't stick to the Meta. While the meta works great at high elo, unconventional play at low elos can catch other low elo players off gaurd, and too disorganized to be able to cope. If someone doesnt wantto play a traditional support, have them play whoever they are best with and try or unconventional, like a Gangplank or Darius support. Low ELOs try too hard to play like high elos, when, in actuality, the game is very different at different levels

The best way out of elo hell is being able to adapt your selection. Dont go saying "waa waa all i play is adc". That mentality alone will keep you stuck where you currently are. You need to be able to play ALL lanes or jungle if needed. Everyone has a role they prefer to play, but being able to play any role decently is the real trick. This lets you act as a filler to provide assets to a team that they might not have had otherwise. This also helps you practice and gain familiarity with the other champions so you know exactly what they are capable of.

TL/DR: Drop the "I only ADC" BS.

First of all, learn to play all roles before playing Ranked match, that's one of the reasons why people lose the game, For example: one player of the team probably want the same roll as you and if you don't let him, he will start to troll.

Second, try to carry your team, it's solo queue, you are on your own, you can't count with the other members of your team because you don't know them, so, try to carry and win your lane and then start to roam in other lanes so you can help them to get feed too.

I apologize for my poorly english.
