1. People have bad games. Sometimes I have a couple of off games or get a matchup which wrecks me; you're helping literally no-one by telling me "omg noob [x] u suck so bad". Also remember all of your bad games when someone isn't doing so well.

2. Be positive. Seriously. Below super-high ELO (1800-2000), 80% of victories are from getting people to shut up, stop bickering, and follow the commands of someone who knows what they're doing. Best way to do that is to calm everyone down, inspire them with your confidence, and get the leader (for me I can usually do it but you may not be able to) to lead. Note that this is different from initiating fights.

I agree completely. The biggest difference between mid and high ELO is the attitude. You usually don't see people in high ELO completely berating their teammates like you would at a lower ELO.

My weird rule when playing solo when I am somewhat in a bad mood:
Give each member 5-10 minutes to talk.
I mute people who are not communicating.
I mute people who are just flaming.

That's it.I also mute the enemy team because I hate them all.
I have currently 0 elo since I haven't played any ranked games but people seem rather selfish or rude most of the time,but you get used to it and just mute their ***.

That's how you win.
Ofc, you should know what you're doing too but if they won't listen to you, next best thing.
Or if that person just happens to be better than you.

What the hell kind of high Elo have you been watching? I see people raging all the time.

Being positive only works sometimes. Once someone crosses the rage line, usually no coming back.
Also to agree with Luther, most visible people at high ELO do in fact "berate" other players.

A big chunck of low games are decided by Baron. Either both teams are close and you get ahead with it. Or people just gets very demotivated do mistackes and lose even if they are ahead.

Strongly disagree with this.
Games are usually determined how likeminded or coordinated a team is in terms of their decisions, Baron is an element of this.

More often then not in low elo, you will get baron and half your team farms for half the duration of the buff.

While the other half pushes 2v5 and effectively throws the game.
