Most of the time, your ELO reflects what people you have as a team, not personally. You can be punished for having the worst people in the game but you could be superb. Tell me what you guys think on the ELO system.

If you are superb, your elo will not stay low for long.

Its sort of like the highest level of incompetence. If you're well below your elo, you can pretty easily carry yourself out to about where you belong. At that point you play support forever and get carried up a little bit higher than you belong : D

I lost my elo due to 15 games in a row with feeders, I cannot do anything to carry myself when I get 4 people who don't know how to play the game. How can I do better without finding a full team?

I don't think it's fair at all... hard to move up when every other game is 3/4v5 but yet I never, ever seem to go 3/4v5 unless we're already clearly winning and they ragequit.

if you're running into leavers all the time, find a duo partner, like the 2 people who have the same problem above. Duo to about 1200 and it stops happening so much

People always say how much they hate the ELO system, but please, tell me a better and more efficient way to do it.... If you really DON'T belong where your ELO is, then you will be able to carry yourself higher, so people who say they got down to like 800 because of their teammates are bull****ting themselves because if you really didn't belong then you could get yourself up.

Elo works. I was at one point 600 elo yea i was that bad. now im at 1300ish without ever duoing. Low elo is all about lack of mechanics....
