What? Who is on a level 5 alt account?
Anyway, look. I'm not pointing out ONE game where you have more deaths than kills. I'm pointing out every game you played. You have more deaths than kills in every single match you played. Even in the one match you managed to win as Cho'gath jungle (but you had a lot of assists).
I know teammates can be bad and they can feed and they can cause the loss, but that doesn't mean you also have to feed.
You want to look at my match history? Go ahead. Right now, of my 10 most recent matches, I have 3 losses. Of those 3 losses:
My most recent match, I played horrendously as Xin Zhao in the jungle. It didn't help that top laner was playing his first game and was only playing top because he definitely couldn't jungle. I tried baby-sitting him as best I could, but the two of us ended up feeding Lee Sin, and Lee Sin proceeded to wreck the entire team. If the rest of my team was better, they could have carried me to the win in that match, but I absolutely am a major contributing factor to that loss.
My other two losses are as Jarvan support. Both of those matches had trolls on my team. And yea, I'll blame those two individual losses on trolls. But those two matches with trolls on my team aren't going to keep me stuck in Elo hell.
Because of the five ranked matches in my 10 most recent matches played, I also have a win as Taric support and a win as Xin Zhao jungle. These are matches with no trolls on my team (though in the Xin Zhao match, the enemy had a rage quit at about 10 minutes). So far this preseason, my record in ranked looks like this...
0-2 when the troll is on my team
1-0 when the troll (that rage quitter) is on the enemy team
1-1 when there is no troll
And that's being decently lenient in terms of defining a troll. In the two matches so far when the troll has been on my team, it's been from the start. AS/AD Lulu intentional feeding top in one match, and a Lee Sin jungle that didn't connect till like 6 or 7 minutes in. When the troll was on the enemy team, it wasn't until he had been outplayed for 10 minutes and then he rage-quit. And I'm not counting playing with a top who had never really topped before on my team as a troll.
Now, if I continue to play, I know in the long run, I'll get enemy trolls slightly more often than teammate trolls. Continue with this win-rate of 50/50 in matches with no trolls, I'll raise Elo by virtue of the fact that the enemy has trolls more often than me.
If I take to dodging queues where I had AD/AS Lulu who insisted top, or the other player who had never REALLY played top before, and I can swing the odds even more greatly in favor of myself to raise in Elo.
