My old account took around 80 games. I played a ton of premade normals with some really good players back in season 1 though.

My current account im suffering through silver. Im confident in my ability to climb out, just gotta get a string of non-helmet wearing team-mates.

It took about 20 games in season 2. This season I'm at about 80 games and I'm silver 2, but lately I've been working my way up fast. I'm something like 11-2 in my last 13 games.

It sucks. At the very beginning of the season I hit 1495ish and went on a huge losing streak, lol.

Is there any hope for somebody breaking even about 38-38? I feel like I "deserve" gold because i'm an above average player at my MMR, I just get some bad throws in solo Q it seems. I'm in S5. I feel like I can get there and yet the progress is not so good.

I'm 43-43 right now. Two or three days ago i was 32-41. You can definitely carry yourself out. it can take a lot longer with this new system though.

Hard to tell without watching you play.

Im still in silver 3 right now after yet another troll demotion (placements start in silver 2 I think) But I can tell when im playing against lower div players. I had a bronze 1 player doing a promo match in one of my games yesterday and called him out on it before checking.

Things to focus on if you want to progress:

Win your lane, but dont tunnel vision. Help others as they need it, even if it means missing a wave of CS when you are up.

React to other player's stupidity. If they do something dumb, and it can end up netting you a kill (obvious jungle entry and you see the enemy follow them in) Move on it. The more fed you can get everybody on your team, the better games will go.

Disregard all anger/nausea/diarrhea feelings that you have when games get thrown or lanes feed. It just makes people play on tilt and mess up more.

He asked if it was possible for a male human to have a sex with a female horse. He even drew a diagram; I think a stepladder was involved.

You won't get their at your current skill level. I've seen people in bronze/silver make the same mistakes over and over and unless you can drastically improve, then no, you're not a gold player
