Hello, So I have an honest question about solo queue ranked and lifting yourself out of sub 1200 elo.
I have tried many strategies, every role, doing whatever the team asks, leading the team, carrying the team, pro support. Nothing seems to work and here is why.
For example last maybe 20 matches I've done a good job as whatever role i was given on my teams, fill in roles people don't want to play refuse to whatever. Just playing as a team guy.
No matter what role I, one or two of the others just totally fails, feeds, trolls, quits, afks, or whatever. I have read all the threads, bla bla, u can carry alone. No you really cant.
You can go 20 and 0 but if your team refuses to play together or does any of the above stated things you will lose, why, because it is a team game. I understand its something that happens in this particular type of game and it is something you have to deal with every now and then. The fact that this is a problem in every single one of my games is just outrageous. Riot needs to stop banning people for calling others names, or "harassing" someone verbally and seriously put all their manpower towards fixing this unreal amount of people just not playing the game as intended. There are many different ways to fix this, anything is better than the system the way it is. In solo queue it is quite frankly not possible to pull yourself out if u fall down here unless u have insane luck. You cannot control these other players, most of the time they take advice or tips as criticism and then rage and refuse to do anything at all.
I understand it would be much easier to duo queue out of it, also before some idiotic response of "working as intended" or "you clearly belong here" is thrown out i challenge you to get sub 1200, and try to solo queue your way out. It is possible but being left to 100% luck is stupid. Losing elo because of this endless nonsense not only makes people angry, it encourages people to play the same way people are playing to them, ie troll and cause people to lose and feed out of spite. No one can maintain a positive attitude in any game where these situations happen in literally every single game.
Riot will not get a single cent out of me until they actually make a real effort to clean up this garbage of a community sub 1200 and do something to actually bring accountability and real punishment to the abusers and actually provide a meaningful way to play your way out of this "elo hell". The system in its current state is a joke.
