Probably 1 in 10, but it's 50/50 which team is 4.

*Shivers* I remember 800 elo. Hopefully you can climb out of that.

Also congrats on the kid.

I love how no one outside of riot employees insist that "setting a good example" works. It doesn't. I have tried countless times, only to get shot down by a teenager with anger issues. They always ignore any advice or suggestions I make or flame me in return. I have had at least 30 such instances in the same number of situations.

Perhaps I'm just not lucky enough to get paired with mature teammates. Oh well.
You are never going to win all your games, you just need to win more than half. I have been playing for months without Riot in my name and I still see some negative game, but it is certainly not constant. I also rarely come across someone who simply will not play with the team, and in my experience, that guy is the one who thinks he is the pro and we are losing because we don't listen to him.

For example, when you know your team has weaker communication, don't do a level 1 invade. You need to be in sync for that. Start the game off slow and cautious, get to know each others style and skill level. It's not reasonable to expect yelling at your team will make them instantly better, you need to find a strategy that works for the skill you have.

Just won a game with Xin, now up to 830. I think a year end goal of 1200 is probably doable.

Ranked is a very different animal than normals or per-made.

People play this on all different time zones. I don't think this really works..

sigh.. just hit level 30 today and so far...

game 1 : perfectly normal match

Game 2: I somehow was convinced to not dodge when the jungler locked in nidilee..... ez rage quit after feeding 4 kills in under 10 minutes and gg..

game 3: I called top, enemy went chogath so I tried to go olaf which now I realize was a derp choice but either way we would have lost considering Mid and Bot lanes Fed even more then me early game...

Game 4 champion select : darius tried to jungle, 2 people were arguing over a previous match, and we had no ADC... anxd no one would dodge so then I had too.. now I sit waiting for an hour for another match...

people who play ranked are so much more derp then the people I met in normal games..
