When I am in game there is no way for anyone to identify me as a Red other than my ping, but I usually play ranked from home where I do not have an 8 ping.

Sometimes you can't win a game, and sometimes you can't calm a rager down. That's not a reason to never try.
ive noticed that in games where everyone is friendly and joking around with eachother in champ select i almost always win those games.

One tip with Xin Zhao : Don't get both frozen mallet and trinity force. If you're getting Trinity force, Warmogs or Sunfire Cape will be a better choise then Frozen mallet. Stay positive and good luck!

Sorry I'm late to the party, but if anyone's new to ranked, I made some fairly hefty guides:

Beginner's Guide to Ranked Games Part 1
Beginner's Guide to Ranked Games Part 2: Gameplay Tips

Part 1 is for those who actually have no idea how the teams and draft mode works. Part 2 is what I imagine the vast majority of players are looking for - It details gameplay tips like runes, masteries, spells, and other useful stuff I think players should know before jumping into ranked.

Good luck and have fun!

Oh, and I should mention, find some roles you're good at and like doing. Ideally you want to be able to play all roles but you shouldn't play sub-optimally if you can help it. Don't let stigmatism get in the way either - In season 2 the majority of my ranked games wins were from playing as support.

I would LOVE if you wanted to duo sometime! But we all have our priorities and whatnot :P. I can say from experience that a positive attitude can really help win games!. I try my best to be positive, too. (95% of the time at least, haha). Would love to play a game sometime if you're interested!

Keep cool.

So in light of recent events...

I have changed my in-game name.

I will undoubtably feel foolish when I have a huge losing streak.
