Ever since I got into silver V it has been the most unpleasant experience in LoL. I put a ridiculous amount of effort to do well in every game to just get dragged back down to 0 points after 3 wins at most because of (mostly) unskilled players.

Especially when I play adc. It's very rare to get a support that will work together with me and not run into the enemy team at inappropriate times.

I'm told gold gets better, but until you hit the point of the game where everyone understands this is a team game and working together is the way to best ensure victory, you're going to have the occasional troll.

Still, its important to remember everyone has bad games. Think of it this way, if you have a bad game every 1 out of 5 games, that means you can reasonably expect someone to have a bad game on your team every game.

if you see a support making mistakes, tell them what they are doing wrong and hope that they correct their behavior. help them out don't just give up

ya i just lost 3 games cuz we have huge lead after laning phase and then everyone goes and does their own thing like a side quest from a rpg adn we throw the teamfights mid game (if u can call 2v5 team fights in 3 different areas of the map teamfights)

so it doesnt get better.....every 30 matches i get a 1 good team and we just perform so well and everyone knows what they are doing....but the other 29 is so painful and heartaching

Well you see, when you are in the botton of a tier, people dont care if they lose becase their is no possibility of going below to the lower one. for example if ur Silver 5 you have NO risk of failling into Bronze 1

I'm an adc main myself, and while I placed siv 3, I've hit siv 5 twice.

Initially, I found that playing my main (Vayne) is horribly risky as she doesn't shine till later and the majority of games are decided during the lane.

Currently, I'm 9 games below 50. Some were afks/dcs, some were close, and an occasional blow out.

I ran support for my last game the other day. From what I've been seeing, as an adc I'm playing as if I'm teamed with higher silvers and not adapting to lower bronze teammates. We were fairly behind, but with solid warding and shot calling (pinging) from me we secured the win. If I adc, if we get behind it's probably a loss because most supports at the lower levels don't value warding enough, let alone the rest of the team. Heck, even if we win the lane, if top and mid fall behind its most likely gg then too.

I know I'm with low bronze and bottoming out when folks start to blame me as the adc when I see poor initiations and positioning across the team. The last game my team was expecting me to work miracles without even providing me a front line, even got told to learn to play by a bronze 4 with over 200 games in ranked.

While its satisfying to know I'll never be that low, its sad to know my mmr has dropped so much that I can even be teamed with one.

At this point, I think I probably need to play support more to elevate my mmr back to normal before I run adc regularly again. Since I have yet to run a single duo, gambling that my support and I are going to run well together has shown its more likely not to. When a random support and I sync naturally, we do well and often results in some perty scores. If we don't, we end up behind and relying on top and mid to win their lanes (which is usually not the case).

Something I've noticed is that people just don't play support well in lower rankings.

Seem like the majority of people don't appreciate the role and just think it's what you choose when all the other roles are taken.

So yeah, playing support definitely helps a lot if you're good at support as you can make the adc win if they're able to follow your cues and whatnot.

One of the guys i used to Q with would go horribly positive if he got mid top or adc

We'd still lose even with his scored like 18/4
He's 93 wins 94 losses and can't get more than halfway up silver 5 before everyone makes him play support or Jungle. Kind of funny to see him lose all the time.
