I highly doubt that would happen.

Maybe silver division 5. I am NOT an expert on this. A red can answer your question very well

I can promise you right now you will probably win 2/10 games if you start ranked as soon as you're 30. To be honest, you will screw a lot of people, but the only way to get better very quickly is to dive into ranked and see what you're doing wrong. Normals will not get you anywhere.

I can somewhat agree with you on this.
I won my 2 very first ranked matches. I was surprised myself. Also surprising to me as to how hard it seems to get a double kill

Lol nvm. You're one of those coop kids. You will win maybe 1 game out of 10 and the reason you won was cause your Jax went 20-4

More like Silver I, possibly Gold V but I doubt it.

I went 8-2 in placement and am Silver II.

I only play Coop to practice normal drafts :O

I hope you don't have anything against that.

I just can't stand losing normals.

Answer to question 1 - Rage isn't that much harder in ranked than in normals. However, getting trolled hurts much more - and trolls know this. Just keep in mind the other team gets trolls too and you'll be fine.

Answer to question 2 - Well, it's a sideways answer. I'll just say that whether you end up Bronze 5 or Gold 1, the people in the game don't really improve in behavior, just in gameplay skill - and there are still quite varying skill levels game to game, because everyone has good games and everyone has bad games. So, no, no matter where you land, you won't be screwed. You'll just play with people around your skill level. And rager level is quite even across all tiers.

Answer to question 3 - Win all placement games on a new account starting at 1200 Elo, max you can get IIRC is Gold 3. That's what Nyjacky and Saintvicious got on their new smurfs last day, and they went 10-0. But seriously, since you've been mainly playing Coop vs AI, don't even dream about it.

Might wanna play a few Draft Pick Normal Games though, before hopping in.

wait until you reach 500 wins because as a new level 30 you still have a lot to learn

You are probably months away from being ready to play ranked. Play all roles a bunch at level 30, watch some streams, get more champions, get more runes, then specializes in two or three champs that you really like and test the waters.

The player pool at the starting levels of ranked is the worst, most toxic group of people you will find in League. You want to be able to hard carry yourself through as many games as possible because people will be throwing games, trolling, feeding, and rage-quitting literally every other game. There are plenty of people who say every game everywhere is like that, but they are all exaggerating except about when you start ranked.
