I've found ELO hell

#1Miksu454Posted 1/18/2013 9:21:43 AM
First everything was going okay, but now in every match no one has brains anymore. Atleast 2 people feed and 1 afk. I can't carry since I'm too bad at this game as well. I have lost 200 ELO in 2 days and It's all downhill. It's not fun to play anymore so I'm propably going to uninstall and move on.

I don't care if this gets 0 replies I just wanted to talk someone that understands, which is... a web site.

what elo are you? don't make such a big decision on your own, uninstalling is selfish and never the way out and think about the people you leave behind

Well, glad to have you with us. Laters. o_o

That said...
Elo hell does not exist and if you truly are as good as you think you are then it is statistically just as likely to gain 200 elo in two days as it is to lose 200 elo in two days. Assuming you ARE AS GOOD as you think you are. If you are worse than you think you are as a player than it's more likely to lose 200 elo than it is to gain 200 elo. If you are better than you think you are then it's more likely to gain 200 elo than it is to lose 200 elo.

Food for thought...

The fact that you respond to the matter in this way rather than getting mad, blaming your team while refusing to understand that you can play better, and being an awful person until you get banned does more to show us that you don't belong at the bottom of the ladder than empty references to your KDR.

So congratulations on being substantially more intelligent than most of the other people who share this problem.

It will get better if you keep at it (4 potential awful, brainless players on your team vs 5 potential awful, brainless players on theirs), but not wanting to play at that level is understandable. It takes a real dedication to your videogame points to play a game you don't enjoy for hours on end just to make a number go up a little bit, and there are better things to use your time on and demonstrate your capability for dedication with.

Not going to lie. I started playing ranked immediately, and tanked my elo down to 590. I always felt I was better than my teammates, and I still believe I was, but while I was better than my team mates, I wasn't good enough to carry a game by myself. Especially with how often there were feeders and AFKers.

I also was only decent in 1-3 roles, and would argue with others to get the roles I called.

But now, after tons more ranked games, I've gone from 590 up to over 800, and I'm confident I'll keep on climbing. Through practice, I've gotten to a point where I can carry my team in pretty much all 5 roles.

Champion select, everyone argues and fights for a position, and I just do what's necessary, and it changes my entire attitude towards the upcoming game.

It just takes patience and perseverence, and you can pull yourself up from where you are.

That being said, ELO hell does exist, but it's only in your mind, and what you choose to make of it. Improve your attitude (which is clearly negative) and your game will improve, and you'll pull yourself out of the hell you created
