Solo Queue? What's the Point? (This isn't an elo hell post or ***** fest post)

So the more and more I think about it, the more it doesn't make sense. Why even offer solo queue in ranked for Summoner's Rift? It should be like Twisted Treeline, where you can only solo queue if you want to do normals. The point is, this is a team game, and yes you can carry bad teams, I've done it many times, but why do it? It doesn't make sense. I just feel that Riot is being counterproductive by offering solo queue in ranked. In all honesty, the only reason I want to get a better solo queue elo is to attract higher elo players to my teams and/or get noticed by higher elo level teams. Just my thoughts on this issue. I really can't think of a solution other than completely getting rid of solo queue in ranked. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
