Also, for you ELO to show up to other players, I believe it must be above 1200.

The Elo rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in two-player games such as chess. It is named after its creator Arpad Elo, a Hungarian-born American physics professor. The Elo system was invented as an improved chess rating system, but today it is also used in many other games. It is also used as a rating system for multiplayer competition in a number of games and has been adapted to team sports including association football, American college football and basketball, and Major League Baseball.
In League of Legends the Elo rating of a player is used by the matchmaking in normal games and ranked games to find other players of a similar skill level to play with/against. Elo is not used for custom and Co-op vs. AI games. The Elo rating for ranked games is different for each queue types: 3v3 arranged, 5v5 solo and 5v5 arranged teams. The rating is only visible for ranked games after 10 games played in a certain queue type. A summoner's Normal game ELO remains hidden at all times and can only be guessed upon based off his or her win/loss ratio and the apparent skill of teammates and enemies.

Yeah because think about it, 2 bans on each team = 4 champions, + 5 members on each team = a total of 14 champions, that is to ensure you get to pick something you own, imagine not being able to use any champion you owned, wouldn't that just suck? :<

Not quite... You need to have 14 champions available to you (between the free rotation and the ones you own). This is because there are up to 4 champions banned before selection (2 per team), and then 10 champions "drafted" - the same champion cannot exist on both teams.

So if you don't have at least 14 champions available to you, and you have the last pick, you could theoretically have NO champions to pick from, which obviously wouldn't work.

And to be honest, it's probably best to own a champ or two of each class, so that you can fill the necessary roles in your team.
