Be positive in matches. Unconstructive complaints or whining will not help you win games.
Never surrender. Ever. There's simply no reason to in ranked. There's always a chance something can turn around.
Get good with enough champions to do most of the roles. People may say , get good with one champion, but often times in lower ELO, people want to all be one role (mid or top, usually). If you have the ability to adapt to a decent amount of roles, you can fill in the gap that someone else is unwilling to fill.
I can play everything except AD Range exceptionally, so I tell my team that in champion select, and often let them choose. if they are quiet, i will suggest myself a champion, but communication is key.
You will lose games. Do not blame teammates excessively. There were mistakes you made too.
The skill-level required to hit 2k ELO is always fluctuating. For example, 2K ELO in season 1 may be represented by the skill level of 1800 ELO players in Season 2. It just depends what everyone's skill level is that's playing ranked games.
Remember, it's a game. Not everyone is cut out for competitive gaming. I've been gaming for years, so I find the challenge fun, but I never beat myself up for it. I suggest you try to adapt the same mindset.
