To some people, Elo hell exists, and to people who are good enough to get out of it, it doesn't. I feel sorry for the people who are kind and are stuck in the <1300 Elo.
For those of you who are COMPLETE JACKASSES AND RAGE AT EVERYONE ABOUT EVERYTHING AND BLAME OTHER PEOPLE FOR EVERYTHING AND.... Oh, I'm sorry. A little outburst. Anyway, here are some tips for those nice people, and even for people in my Elo, the 1300's. I got here from the 1000's, after falling from 1200 very quickly at first. It's perfectly normal to do so, and in order to get out of this bracket, you have to have a lot of patience, a little bit of skill, and the knowledge which I am providing right now.
The way I've found most effective to get out of the perceived "elo hell" is to 1. Be able to play ANY ROLE well, or at least four out of the five. Chances are your other 4 teamates will grab that role and want it.
2. You must be kind with your teamates, and when they get angry, you cannot get angry back. When people won't listen, deal with them as best you can, ask them to do things politely, and if all else fails just ignore them, and think of them as a moveable tower. Quoting my friend Crech, "A tower is the worst teamate ever. It never calls mias, it doesn't stick with the team, it doesn't communicate, and it doesn't participate in teamfights." In these situations, try to make the most of the competent people on your team, stick together, and try to exploit the enemy team.
3. Which leads me to this. Your team of 5 isn't the only side with complete idiots. Sometimes, the other team has idiots too, and even if you don't hear them yelling at each other on chat, you have to figure out who's the best and who's the worst on the team. In laning phase, exploit those weaker players, gank them, get kills and set yourself up for mid-end game. In the teamfights, go for these stronger players, deny them kills and hope that your teamates can clean up the rest of the scrubs.
4. You have to have confidence and know that your the best, but you can't have complete arrogance. This is the ultimate downfall of some of the decent players in the <1300 Elo bracket. They think that they are better than everyone else in the game, calls everyone noobs, and has a "good" score because of killsteals, chasing down the support in teamfights, etc, and you'll notice that they won't have that many assists. These are the ultimate bad teamates, and this leads me to my 5th point.
5. Duo queue. Nuff said. If you don't have a cool rlf who's actually competent, (I do, I'm lucky) you've got to solo queue until you find someone who's willing to duo with you. If you keep your composure, be considerate and ask them after game, chances they'll duo with you. This does a number of things, which includes a. reducing the number of chances a dumbass will be in your queue, b. helps you rely on someone (great if you're a bot duo or a jungler + mid/top combo) and c. ________________ Probably more but I can't remember atm.
I'm sure there are many more things you can do, and I had them in my head when I started this post but I walked away and forgot, so if anyone else has COMPETENT constructive criticism for this post, I'll gladly accept it. I'm not going to argue down idiots more than once, and even then I'll need a good reason. A quick overview: 1. Be versatile, and develop 2-3 good champs per role. 2. Be calm, cool, kind, and considerate with your (sometimes frustrating) teamates. 3. Ignore the uncooperative people on your team, work with the people that do, and exploit the enemies. 4. Have faith in your abilities, and know that if you truly don't belong in the Elo you're in, you should be able to carry yourself out (key issue with a lot of the "I'm stuck in Elo Hell, what do I do?" posts,). and 5, Get a good DQ partner. Thank you very much for spending the time to read this guide, and I hope you have some luck finding your way out of the <1300 Elo Bracket.
I'm Skijmac7, and add me/message me, I'm at 1320 Elo atm, if I have time I'll duo with you myself.
