Hey guys, I'm currently in Bronze I, the same division I've been in since season 3 officially started. My problem is that I've gotten into a promotion series four times (I just got in a fresh one, so this will be my 5th), and I'm really having trouble winning 3/5 games. It seems there are no issues getting back into the series; I go on a 2 or 3 win streak to get back to 100 points... but once the series begins, it's like I'm paired with people way below average skill level against people who have some idea of what they're doing.
I play AP mid, and although it's a common pick I usually convince my team to let me play it, since I'm very confident in that role. I never lose mid lane. I know it sounds cocky but I'm in Bronze... nobody has beaten me in lane in ranked yet, BECAUSE I DON'T BELONG IN BRONZE AAAGGGHGHHHHH@!#@
Why don't other people who call their roles in champ select have the same confidence as me? Plenty of people will call top or adc or jungle and be terrible at the role...
People have told me that roaming is a great way help to your team and I agree, because when I roam it usually turns into a kill or two, but I have trouble knowing when to roam, since the other mid (or the other team's jungler, if the mid is missing) will push my lane to hell and put a ton of damage on my turret, if not take it down altogether.
I guess my main question is: can you guys offer me some tips on how to carry myself out of Bronze? I don't want to lose another series because there's a 0/12 Darius top lane on my team and the 12/0 (insert hypercarry bruiser here) on the other team just runs around and 1v4s the rest of our team.
Anything you can offer would be great!
