I was and still am in elo hell... I started playing rank games WAYYYY before I was ready and as a result I ended with a record of 7-42...I know fail right? As I grew in knowledge, maturity, and competency I learned some little tricks about how to win games.
1. From the VERY start introduce yourself and the character you will be picking (say please)
2. If someone picks a ****ty champ don't rage
3. Go into the game with confidence and try to boost your teams confidence.
If your team has a positive attitude, your teams confidence increases and you have a better chance of winning. Unless of course someone came into the game intending to feed ie. AD Soraka or AP Trynd. Moreover, I just started playing ranked again in an attempt to even at my score before season two. My current record is 50-71, I have won 43 and lost 28... Just be confident and positive. P.S I don't want LoL's community to turn into HoN's.
