STUCK IN ELO HELL“ I think the best way to get out of an elo you’re stuck in, is to first realise you’re stuck in the elo because you belong there. That’s just how the system works. It’s not like “OH SHIT WE GOTTA PERSONALLY DRAG THIS GUY DOWN IN THIS ELO. MAKE SURE HE NEVER REACHES HIS TRUE POTENTIAL”…You’re gonna get stuck at this elo until you improve. There is a common factor in your guys’ games if you get stuck at an elo, and it’s you…It’s not shots fired and toxic, it’s the truth man. If you ever start a sentence with, “MY TEAM”, if you say anything about your team, when it’s like “I’m stuck at this elo” then you’re stuck at that elo for a reason. If anywhere in that setence it doesn’t involve YOU, and it’s like “MAN MY TEAM. THEY CAN’T DO THIS, THEY CAN’T FUCKIN’ FARM, THEY CAN’T CARRY MY STUPID ASS”, it’s like…okay. You got bigger problems there buddy…”

This shit makes me so angry…
First of all, everything stated here is 100% untrue. It is ENTIRELY possible for your losses to be because of your teammates. If you’re a good player solo queing theres a good chance you might just not get a good team, especially in bronze and silver (i’ve heard gold is bad too). And some would say “Well if you’re good then you should be able to carry!” But lets think here for a second. I dont know if you are aware of this or not but this is a TEAM GAME. Meaning that it requires TEAM work. I dont recall ever seeing anyone be strong enough to carry an entire team by themselves, its almost impossible unless you’re super pro. I cant tell you how many fucking times we’ve lost because every lane fed and decides to just quit or are too stupid to actually band together and think of a solution. It’s annoying, and it happens to everyone. BELIEVE IT OR NOT BUT SOMETIMES YOU CAN LOSE BECAUSE OF YOUR TEAM WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!
and depending on what rank you are, it can happen A LOT. I’m not saying that every person that blames their team is right because most are just being jerks. But there are people that are forced to stay in bronze/silver because they keep getting horrible teams.
You cant blame an entire loss on just one person. because I’ve won games where weve had a teammate feed and we still one. It’s based on teamwork and cooperation. something most people on this game know nothing about.
If you’re better than the people on your team, you should be better than the people on their team too. There is a large amount that relies on you and you alone, due to solo queue being a win-it-yourself type deal. Teamwork has less of a factor, and so being able to exploit the weaknesses in the other team is a factor. If youre going 10/0 every game and still losing, it’s still not everyone else’s fault, because you couldn’t do enough with your advantage, or maybe was too selfish and went under the impression that only you can do anything, which is never the right mentality. If you’re ahead, bring your team with you. Stop taking all the kills and getting pissed at the other guys, because you’re not helping anyone.
