I know everyone has their bad games,but their is a difference between bad games and bad players.
Ex. Start of a ranked game someone calls that they play ad ranged and nothing else. If you play ranked you should be able to play any role imo.
Ex. I just carried a team as Cho. I was tanking and still went 17-3. We lost of course because our carries lost their lanes.
I just want decent players who use teamwork instead of it's a me show. I've had plenty of bad games, but i communicate and try to work with my team. I love playing ranked over normal because i'm working for a better elo and it is more satisfying, but it gets old having bad players auto locking twitch. Is anyone else having this problem?

Brand new lvl 30 accounts start at 1300 Elo. Nothing stops them from doing this. How is it hard to understand that when skill isn't a requirement to level up that you end up with unskilled players at lvl 30?

I know that 1000-1300 elo has new players but i can't get out of that area because of new players who are just bad. rarely do i lose because we just get outplayed

I have a pretty bad elo. I accept, however, that it was my lack of knowledge and ability at the time that is mainly responsible for that. I stopped after a few losses to go practice again for a few hundred games and even that bit of extra practice has opened my eyes so much to how big a noob I was before. I'm not pro now by any means but I'll never be as bad as I was before either.

Apologies to whoever copped me in ranked a few months ago. ^^

True story, don't feed the tank, feed the cary. Play more support.

I've been at level 30 for a few months now and so far, I've played three ranked, all losses. I'm kind of glad they added draft to normal mode, since I can play something similar to ranked (picking champions based on team comp and opponent picks). Until then, I didn't realize just how important it is to be able to play a range of characters, not just my personal favorites. I have my good games, but most of the time, I'm at best mediocre, even with my favorites.

Result? I've pretty much abandoned ranked until I can play at least two champs for each role.
