As somebody who got placed in Bronze IV after a rough stretch, yes. I will say this, the lower you are, the harder it is to carry on your own.

Sort of, it exists but you will drag yourself out of it eventually.

I guess C, usually people toss the term around like it's impossible to get out of.

Not even a poll/10.

You like it or you don't, but i hate people saying it's 'an acquired taste." That's just a cop out. - bookwormbabe29 on beer.

I think anyone could reach any elo if they played enough and were good enough. Elo hell is just the mindset that develops when the past 3 ranked games have had an afk on your team, and you're just like, 'elo hell brah' but then of course you don't think of elo hell when you carry 2 games in a row.

Only if you're bad.

Yeah i know how bad bronze is, it's easy to get out once you understand how.

There are plenty of people who end up getting stuck with many teams in a row that they either cannot work with, or just have trolls in them. Once you start losing, you start getting worse teams to deal with. It's the period where you're stuck getting bad games in a row and can't seem to get any good ones for whatever reason. It can be painful and some people can't actually handle it; they end up being hard to work with or start trolling, themselves.. This is what "ELO Hell" truly is. It's just a really rough losing streak.

Eventually, you will get back up to where you belong, but it's easy to fall into a pitfall and hard to climb out unless you're well-practiced and patient.
