So, practice. Play a lot (normal or ranked, doesn't really matter). Trolls and feeders happen, but you're going to win more often than not if you carry every game.
I'm at 1417 atm (getting lots of trolls atm, wen it's over I'll get to gold) and I started from 918. Your winrate down there won't be close to 95% lmao. It is so hard to carry. Not just because every1 sucks, it's the attitude that ppl hav in the game. I remember when I would lose games where I was like 7-0 Lee just because people would afk when I didn't gank for them and they died from overextending. My season 2 Lee Sin winrate was so bad compared to now lol.
Oh and emphasis on "IMAGINE". Really don't make up random bs statistics ridiculously high as 95% winrate at 900 elo if you're 1400. If you haven't been there, just offer advice to the guy and try not to make him feel down because you haven't experienced the pain of 900 elo. Although I will say that if I played 10 games in 900 and 10 games in 1400 (from what I'm experiencing in 1400 atm), I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. The player mechanics are the same, the decision making and throws are equally poor. Only thing you really notice is that in 1400 people play the FOTM and Meta champs while in 900 you'll literally see every champion before you get to 1000.
