Elo hell does not exist. What you should do instead of blaming your teammates is focusing on what you should do to carry harder.
Case and point, i recently had a game where my teamates were beyond frustrating (since mm sometimes puts very low elo with the highest elo to counterbalance our q times into not being 1 hour per pop).
Long story short i had to get 29 kills, few deaths, defended turrets as the one man platoon, captured multiple turrets, pinged my teammates where i wanted an ambush, ganked bot to make sure he didn't constantly lose it; and despite all of this we only won by 50 points.
Now if i had not been able to do all of that, that match which was a win would have resulted in a loss, giving me an elo minus instead of an elo plus.
That is the difference between people who get themselves out of elo hell, as compared to people who constantly complain about ops, their teammates, matchmaking, riot, fortune cookies, etc; who always seem to be stuck in elo hell.
I'm not trying to be rude, or claim that i'm better than anyone by saying this. i get frustrated in some games and get upset at my teamates, as well as do dumb stuff in matches that i shouldn't. However, that is my fault. Not my teammates. Even at high elo i'm constantly watching people above and below my elo to find new tricks i can learn, since no one ever masters anything completely and sometimes low elos will throw an ingenious curve-ball into the match that i will sometimes incorporate into my own strategy.
All i can do is improve and carry harder, as should you.
