Why do I play ranked?

There are so many terrible players out there that just ruin the experience. Ranked these days seems to mainly involve who can pick the champions that are considered OP at the moment.
I just played a match where a player waited to random pick (intentionally, with revive and promote). The whole game he just followed our alistar around the map. Admittedly, this was hilarious, but still. Final score was 0/0/1. So much fun. Lost 50 elo on that match.

Get out of placement and things will get better

If you believe in Jesus Christ, have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior, and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

People don't really like winning in ranked.

Do you promise lol? I don't know if my elo will survive placement either. I really don't want to have to work my way up from low elo after placement again.

No it won't be any better. Even in high elo it can be bad. You just gotta suck it up and accept that there will be people who ruin your game.

If you keep playing well though I believe that over the course of enough games you will gain a fair bit of elo and go up in ranked.

Ranked has always been about FoTM OP or very rarely crap character specialists.
