Hello! My name is Shadow and I would like some tips for ranked or just summoner's rift in general. I have some questions if people can hopefully answer, it'd be great! Thank you very much!

1. How to keep a team together? Sometimes people go roaming and never group up, which results in one less team member.

2. Is there a difference in LP gain through divisions and tiers? Do you need to play more games to get through a ranked tier four vs tier five?

3. Combinations of people to ban? Is it more effective to ban three champions in a single lane or one from each lane?

By all means, please give personal experiences too! Thanks!

In the order your asking
The "never group" is a legit strategy that consist of one player usually the top laner keep pushing one lane by doing so he get's gold from farm and he's constantly creating map pressure. A singed with 150+ farm will not be killed by one person and thus two people must be sent to stop him. But if you DO need your team ask them to group and if they don't... well we all can admit human stupidity is the real cancer, right?

LP gain is decided by something called your MMR or Match Made Ranking. Basically your win to loss ration. When you have a really good win to loss ratio and you continue winning Lol will constantly place against higher level players. For example a silver 1 with an 80 win ratio might see him self against gold 5 and higher. The greater the gap in rank the better your Lp gain. I've seen some people get 30lp per win and lose 5Lp a loss

Soloqueue bans are a lot different then LCS bans. What you want to ban are champions that you have problems facing in more than just the laning phase, champions people tend to fail on, and noob stompers. By champions that are more than just a problem in lane i'm taking about those heavy snowball champions that get a few kills then go out of control like Master Yi, Yasuo, Maokai etc. Champions people tend to fail on like Gnar and Vayne. Noob Stompers are the champs that lower elos have no idea how to play against like Tristana, Yasuo, Maokai, Vi, Nasus, etc.

Hi there!
1. Try to communicate to stay as 5 and dont fight unless ur team has all members there. If the person refuses to group defend on turrets or play the split push game and if ur teammate that wont group is top all 4 of u push bot and force them to stop one of you.
2. This is all based on your win/loss ratio and MMR if you have a good MMR or win/loss ratio it should be just as easy to get through the 4th tier as it was to get through the 5th. If u have bad MMR you will not gain as much LP until u get ur MMR up or ur win/loss ratio so you will need to go on winning streaks.
3. I think it is most efficient to just ban flavor of the month and op champs and champs that you have troubles with. Ideally you want to ban multiple op champs from multiple positions.

Also Im currently gold and climbing. I have been coached by some of the best coaches in the world. I have a lot of knowledge I would like to share with you. Would love to help you get better and climb! Add me in game and we can talk more, I look forward to helping you get better!
