@Phreak or any Gold/Plat Red
 
Why don't you prove that elo hell dosent exist by making a new acc, dodge games till your about 700-800 ELO then get back to Plat

By doing this u prove their is no elo hell and it is possible to carry feeders, trolls, afkers

If u do manage to do this people can't complain about elo hell being impossible to carry and that if they were already a certain elo they would be able to maintain it.

PROVE US WRONG!

ps. even though pro gamers do this most of the time on their smurfs not everyone knows who they are and seen them do it

Ehhh, waste about 1-4 months doing this or get better with your team and improve? Hmmm tough choice.

There has been tons of people that's done that and carry back to their true elo. I believe one of them were a Plat player. Personally, I have a friend that does that almost every other month, when he gets bored of 2k elo, he dodges down to 800 and works back up again.

Or you could create account using Riot's magic pixie dust to start out with 700 elo.

Phreak already did this in last half of last year.

A million people have already done this

Where have you been?

Forget 700-800, people have dodged/trolled to NEGATIVE ELO VALUES just to grind their way back.

Nobody who plays this game even semi-seriously respects the idea of Elo hell. We all started at 1200 (hell, we started much lower than that when we played our first normal games) so we already disproved it.

Bill Gates was able to create a technological empire, why can't you? Clearly people need to Learn 2 Money.

Here's my problem with that reasoning.

Sure, YOU can carry your way out of Elo hell, but not every player is a gold/plat. Yes, YOU, the top what is it, 2% of the players in the game can carry a team full of trolls. But what about those people who play at a say, 1400 Elo skill? They're not nearly as skilled, and won't be able to carry NEARLY as easily as someone used to playing at a 1700+ Elo.

I was 1410 last season. I'm ~950 now. Been slowly falling for a while.

Just hoping I can climb out,

Statistically speaking, you're 20% more likely to have a troll on the other team. After enough games, that 20% chance will materialize (in the same way that if you flip a coin 5 times you may get 4 heads, but if you flip it 500 times, you're far more likely to see 225-275 heads.) and, assuming you're better than your elo, you will come up.

It's possible (probable, even) that instead of being trolled to below your elo this season, you just got lucky and were carried to a higher elo than you belonged last season. There is nothing wrong with not being gold elo. Just accept that you are where you are and work to get better. I've seen people carry games down 1 kill to 10, behind multiple dragons. If you can't do that, maybe you're not as much better than the elo you're playing at after all.

Elo hell does NOT exist. I put myself in it intentionaly.
