Mostly just need to vent about this..
just had another game as support in low elo.. I fed our team, warded everything.. we were 10-0 before 10 min and I ensured that almost all of the kills were to our ap and ad carries... only died 3 or 4 times (at the very end of the match after 25+ min)
and our dps start going out solo and getting ganked repeatedly, soon its 10-11. then 10-17 by the 20 min mark, now we are team fighting and our dps start with the tanks and work their way down..
Me and volibear team up with warwick and pull off an unbelievable comeback by now its 31 all, and there goes our dps.. ganked, ganked, ganked, we see ashe at the top enemy tower when we don't even have a top inhibitor... some how manage to get her back without a death and then she leaves when the teamfight happens at full hp
its like 31-38 now, we some how push all their towers, all we need is an ace and we win! team fight starts at baron! we have them spread out and low! wait.. wheres the dps.. oh, they walked back to base when the fight started and get double killed by the jungle in our base...
now, I get that skill or whatever is supposed to shine through in elo.. but my last 8 matches have been almost identical to this and I'm about to drop below 1000 elo into an even MORE disadvantageous position.
I mean, if this doesnt at least suggest that our ELO system has some serious flaws then I don't know what to say... Matches at this ranking are essentially boiling down to luck and who got the ****tiest players
I mean we had 3 players performing amazingly, like the **** you see in the upper 1600-1800 elo and we can't win because of players like this.. we even educated them mid game about needing to stay behind the tanks and not to initiate or run far out of the base alone.. and they just don't get it.. even when we all agree on the kill order they go for the tanks and follow them off away from the team every time!!!
What are we supposed to do!?
