However, If you were to look at it, you'd see games where my KDR is positive 85% of the time.
It doesn't matter how well I play in my role, if the rest of the team isn't seriously trying to improve their elo. I can scream till I'm blue in the face, buy wards, tell my team what best strategy is, but it doesn't work when they are intent on doing whatever they want.
Bottom line, We can que for ranked, but even if we do our part, it's others in these queue's that can drag us down. That is the serious problem with ranked solo que.

Also, if you have somebody to duo queue with you, winning a match is ALOT easier unless your team is a HARDCORE feeder team (like 0-10 in 20 minutes)
Try to pick really strong hyper carries, Koq Maw is one of them, get your friend to support you bot, or support your friend who plays Koq Maw on bot, let him farm and watch him snowball into mid/late game.
He takes out anybody in his path in very short times, stay at the back wait for somebody from your team to run into the enemy team, kill their ap carry, then their ranged ad carry, and it the team fight is won. If you want to play it even more safe, get a quicksilver sash + cleanse instead of exhaust and have a double get ouf of jail card and it will be hard for you to get killed. (That's only if you want to be super safe, 1 QSS works wonders too. If the ranged AD carry tries to kill you, exhaust him and he can't in which you take him out in the process.
It's hard for you to get focused too because:
1)Everybody in elo hell sucks at focusing
2)You have long range (Exhausting you is hard unless they have a deathwish)
3)QSS or Cleanse if you do get stunned/exhausted/a ghay ult (like malz or ww)
If you go percentage Koq alias Madreds, Malady etc. you will have alot of potential for fast killing, and I suggest you build that because it gives you alot of attack speed for a small cost. Malady and Bloodrazor already bring you to around 1.7 ATK SPD without a maxed Q that gives you bonus attack speed.
