everybody that claims it doesn't exist, in my opinion probably won about 4 out of their first 5 games. this could be based on skill, or the fact that the other team simply had a leaver/troll. if your unlucky enough to have a bad start into ranked games your climb to bronze can be quite difficult. i know after playing about 200 ranked games or so people should typically balance out at where they belong. my problem is i get so discouraged while playing ranked that i get mad at the game lol. so far in the last two days here are a few of the situations i've found myself in.

0-14 AD gragas.... just.. why...

0-13 Morde who started with 13 health pots... again... why.

multiple players going for "touchdowns" for no point... being damaged and closely chased so it wasn't to try and give the turret a kills instead of a champion.

a AFK or Leaver in what seems like 75% of my games forcing a 4v5.

not *****ing or moaning, i mean i know i'm not the only person who has these problems. i just wanted to point out that elo hell is a real thing. just not to the extreme that a lot of people try and claim.

Elo hell does exist but not in the way people think.

Yeah I am around 1300 myself and god, people there are terrible. However every team sport begins with an individual, so always look at your own mistakes. You have no control over other people, anyways.

Everyone who starts ranked is 1200 elo; regardless of skill. So the few people who play 1000 normal games before starting ranked will suffer from the 80 normal win guys who rush into ranked. Hence, there is a sense of elo hell but as I said: its far more different then ppl think.

I'm stuck 850-1250 purely cause atleast 1 of 3 games there is 1 or 2 leavers and rest of my team think that cause enemy amumu jungle is fed we should target him...
