I is in the 900's though very bad but I also learned a few lessons and that is to always keep a ward handy. And as falco stated It does not matter if you or your team mate gets the kill. It doesn't matter if it was intentional ksing or not. A kill is a kill as falco says this can set your enemy back it can set there whole team back. Duo que is way better then solo que. It is always better to team up with someone you know rather then some random person you can communicate better with them and coordinate better. build situational items. But don't go so far out of the way as to the point you have no sustain. I do know this though i don't care who you are and who isn't doing it ( always have a WARD, WARD, WARD, WARD.) Those things are prettttty usefull.
What Kawaii Miau said is true.
The most important thing is, to communicate with your team. Do it in the lobby, and do it in the game. Ping when you will gank, tell your team what you are going to do next. Every little communication you have, will help you out. If somebody dies or something like that, just imagine that you were playing soccer with your friend, and he just missed to kick the ball into the goal. Pat them at their shoulder and encourage them that it will be better next time, if needed go and help them out. This is the key to winning ranked games with random people.
The second you start raging, is the second you will lose. If people start fighting, take over the role of being the leader and tell them that it is fine, and that **** happens. Mistakes always happen. Both on your team and on the enemy team, this is how games are won, by people making mistakes. They'll be more encouraged to play because they have somebody that leads them to doing organized stuff. Trust me, it's subconsciously happening.
Chances are though that YOU are not raging at your teammates for doing a mistake, while the enemy team may do so. This already puts you forward by a huge margin. People only rage when they get frusterated and are full of negatives thoughts, in other words:
They rage because they fear to lose. When this happens, you can take over and finish it, since the enemy is too busy thinking "Oh mah gawd, if we do X mistake, the enemy team will win!" instead of focusing on what to do next, while you are thinking positively about the game. Stay optimistic and keep playing. I have won ranked games before with a score of 4 to 26, my team being the 4 kills.
This is how sivir (c wut i did thar?) teamwork can be, never give up. It's over when your Nexus explodes, not when the enemy team gets to X score. Always keep that in mind.
Oh a last thing if you are a jungler: Look at creep score, or how the lane is working out. Obviously if your ally has less creep score than your enemy, that he is having a hard time, or suffered through ganks. After ganking some lanes succesfully, always keep an eye on your allies. There is no point in getting 2-3 kills bottom while your top lane is going 0-7. And the stupid thing is that top snowballs rather hard, and if you try to gank it later, it will fail due to them being 2-3 levels higher, and having massive amounts of gold advantage. If that happens, ask your mid lane to help you and tripple gank the enemy, or else you will give a double if you gank alone.
