Clamping is so stupid tbh. Overcoming a division shouldn't require a 14 game win streak to promos where you need a bo5. Not to mention in s1 you play gold2-5s. It's a broken system if you decided to duo with a friend who placed lower than you it penalizes you hard. Before you say stupid things like win more than you lose understand overcoming this slumpy ass +3 or 5 lp gain is impossible given the randomness of teammates. I hope s4 is different.

it doesn't require a win streak, it just requires you to win@ the top a little.

It's impossible to overcome? How come people still make the leap then?

Also, congrats on calling yourself trash.

if you are gaining less than 8 LP per win, you are actually at a HIGHER division than you SHOULD be, you should be THANKING riot for giving you a higher division than you deserve

i personally hate the best of 5 thing myself, such a huge time sink if you fail it

When ELO balances out you should be gaining and losing 5LP a game. And adjust for red and blue side advantages. (Think it is flat 2 or 3 points, I forget)

You are in silver 1, but you probably have an mmr of silver 2 if that makes sense.

Win more is the answer, all you need to do is win more than you lose, even if it's just by 1 or 2 you'll eventually break that ceiling. Same goes for the promo games, 1 win more than your loss count is all you need.

I understand these feels. The League system; while a good concept; really needs some refinement. The way it is now just doesn't work out fairly, I feel. But it's not impossible. Something I've had nice results with is simply being a friendly player who is enjoyable and staying out of arguments that may spring up. It keeps team morale higher than having a flame war, and it allows your team to stay more focused on what matters. You'll typically win more games.
Of course, I haven't been able to climb out of Bronze for the life of me, but it's still good advice, nonetheless. xD

Wildturtle has 3 accounts in Challenger Tier. Is that luck too?

Words of advice: Carrying games is more than just having a good KDA. Understanding objective control, not being a Toxic influence in chat, and helping out other lanes that are losing are all important. If you are stuck, then there is something you are doing wrong and you need to figure it out objectively.

Complaining about the system sure as heck won't get you out.

Looking at your LoLking profile games one thing that sticks out is you have a considerably low amount of CS in some very long games. Especially considering you were playing ADC in these games.
