So basically, I was playing Dr. Mundo solo top against Cho'Gath and I owned him and all the other players in the enemy team. Still there was a fed Draven. My team repeadately fed him though I said them not to. I ended up having 12/4/5 and ganking everywhere. Currently I'm in "ELOHELL" (so yeah im 980 elo though I was 1254).
This ranked matchmaking makes no sense. Basically, you end up with some douc*ebags that feed and they even don't have the same skills like you. Is there a way to improve my team? Maybe some morale boosting (no, not thinking of in-game Gangplank morale boost)? Before this game I won 4 rankeds in a row and always ended up with positive score. Please be nice and consolate me :( I'm very sad because this happened because now I see that nothing is fair... Even video-games.

Well, there are 2 things you can do:

1. You can have fun and do a lot of normal/low elo matches where you just mess around a bit :D
2. You find a ranked team that cooperates well and are also fun to hang out with, so you can raid your elo anyway.
Change is gooooood

If you win games, you'll eventually get better players with a better attitude.

So you're saying you won 4, then lost 1 and now the system sucks? o_o

I won my lane once in ranked as Ezreal. But top was feeding Jax hard and mid wasn't too far ahead himself.

Anyway, come teamfights Alistar and Lee Sin kept ******edly hitting Jax into my face. I wasted at least 3-4 Arcane Shifts to get away, return to the battle, only to have him hit to me again, wasting another Arcane Shift, but still dying. In total, this happened 3 times throughout the game. I wasn't out of position, but ******ed support and jungler hit the most dangerous champion on the enemy team towards me. Suffice to say, I lost that game.

After talking about it with one of my friends, he concluded that I simply wasn't good enough.

Here's the advice he gave:

Stomp your lane. Then go stomp the adjacent lane. Then carry the game. If you can't do this, you're not good enough.

Now, I know you get bad games where teams are really ****, but the dude had a point. I thought it over as I was playing a few more games.

There is no Elo Hell. If you're not good enough to carry your game, then you deserve your Elo.

After thinking about this, I played a game as Vladimir in ranked, whom I had not touched since pre-S3 changes. I entered the game with the ambition to pwn at least 2 lanes. Unfortunately, I had trouble against Cho'Gath mid. I maintained level farming with him, HOWEVER, I scored kills via other lanes. 1 kill top and 2 kills bottom let me snowball hard. It also took pressure off my teammates too.

The only death I got was from a misclick on my part. I pressed W instead of R, so I ended up in a useless pool doing nothing and died as soon as I got out.

tl;dr - Just get better.

Having a duoq partner also helps, though.
