So I just finished my 10 ranked games and I have 1188 elo, 1200 top rating, is that good? Am I stuck in elo hell? Somebody help me clarify.

Elo hell is a personal thing, it varies from person to person, you may be in elo hell at 500 or 900, or 1200, hell even 1600. Just keep playing and try to remain calm let alone keeping your team calm, if something goes bad go play something else for a few hours or do something other than LoL. Test the waters and see when you find the best players to be on, usually for me I find mornings and late nights to be the best time to queue.

Elo hell is typically considered to be 100-200 elo below your "true elo." It is where you may be a little bit better at map awareness, general strategy, or even choosing your champion than the typical summoner, yet there isn't a significant enough gap in skill between you and the other players to get through this elo.

Some view elo hell as basically any elo in which they "don't belong." However, a very talented player named Saintvicious (2000+ elo) disproved that last year. He intentionally brought his elo down to rock bottom by queue dodging, then he steadily worked his way back up to his original elo with few problems.

Anyway, 1200-1400 elo is considered a modest elo, right around the median. So way you can look at it is, you're probably better than about half of level 30s, and the other half might have an edge on you

He didn't queue dodge down, a hacker brought his ELO down to literally 0 ELO. Then he just streamed a few games and yes proved you can win down there laughably easily. Then Riot returned his ELO back to 2k+

IMO, it's more like an average. You can't expect your entire team to do better than the opponents team every game in all aspects of the game. If you win 4 for every 2 losses, you might rage, because you're losing 20 points about for every 40 you get. Obviously it takes a long time to improve your ELO, so play a lot
