1200 is considered "average" for ranked (competitive) players, which would mean you'd be above average when considering the entire community if you were 1200.

1000 is probably closer to "average" for the entire community, which includes summoners who aren't even 30 yet or who don't play ranked at all, but would be considered slightly below average for competitive/ranked players.

If you're still struggling with simple mechanics such as last hitting, I wouldn't expect your elo to jump up until those fundamentals are fixed. It's important to fix problems like this, since it means you're playing a wide range of champions at a lower potential than they could be played at (except for supports and junglers, who aren't concerned with last hitting as often).

So how will the elo go up? Do i need do win games thats it? Or does my personal score count?

Also how low can an elo score go?

Im kind of worried to get it any lower i heard than any thing below 1,400 is considered elo hell where there are trolls 24/7 and griefers. I know im below it already but how can people get to like 600 or lower there ether bad players or trolls.

Only winning; personal score doesn't count because it isn't an accurate representation of how you did.

To sum up what Mr. Not-Twist said, rather than focusing on winning, though it is important, focus on improving your personal game-play, and the wins (and from there your Elo) will come along as well.

Good to know. Im wondering the very top players and higher people do they play alot of champions or focus on getting really really good with few. Maybe i should stop switching so much and get good at 6 or some champions say a tank, carry, mage and so on so i can at least still play what my team needs.

XD I meant to write Thunder, then left to play a game, the T was there when I came back, and I've responded to a few of his posts earlier today... T_T

(Besides, you guys always seem to post in spurts, but never at the same time, how am I supposed to know you're not the same person? >.&gt

I wouldn't let your Elo bother you too much; you're still better than the average LoL player, but being new to ranked you should expect to not be as good as the average ranked/competitive player. I'm pretty terrible at the game (I suck at last hitting), but I've climbed up to a bit over 1500 Elo on my smurf solely by playing things that the team needs and being pretty good about map awareness, warding, banning the most problematic champions for disorganized teams to deal with, counterpicking, and so on.

After 10 games, that's not a very accurate representation of where you are. Once your elo inflation settles down (The earlier games you play in ranked will have more of an effect on your rating than the ones you play later. Your elo changes by around 40-50 for the first 10-20 games, then it lowers gradually until the change is around 12 per game), that should be around where you actually are, and you should work on simply improving your personal play, and being able to co-operate with teammates well.

So, I'll just jump in with a quick question on this thread...you can't see your ELO until you hit 30 right?

And then when you hit 30, does your elo fluctuate by playing both regular games and ranked games or just ranked games?

Do I (level 16) have an ELO right now and it's just hidden?
