Please discuss. I would like to know what I'm missing out on, stuck in elo-hell with terrible ragers, etc.

Not Elo-Hell, and you aren't stuck. You can get out if you play your best, and play in a duo when you can, don't be so down hearted about it. 1200+ is hardly any better apparently, just a few more average players. And don't tell me I don't understand, I am 670 ELO. I have a thread about posting my progress on my way out. You'll get out, just keep playing and don't moan like the rest of the idiots.

Yes, he is. He said the most idiot word around here (ELO hell) and also said he's stuck.
He can try to go up in the next life though

Even if he said the unmentionable he can still get out, with a lot of effort, and play.

1200 Elo is the place where most players are.
You are not alone and you belong there if you don't get out.

Trying to get out.. asked about all the ragers because people just say one thing and someone will afk for the rest of the game. It's so pathetic. I understand kids play the game as well as adults, but shouldn't that be a good enough reason for everyone to act mature? I want to play in a really good match with champions actually picked for reason (like counter the other team, team chemistry, etc.)

Being a kid really has little to do with it, they're just idiots. I think you would be suprised how many of them are 18-21. You can get out, try to Duo que, it will improve your chances a lot. And what you want is 5v5 premade, not solo que, going by what you said. You're looking at the ideal match-up that everyone wants, that certainly rarely happens in 1200 ELO, let alone our ELO. You need to take the mindset that the other team is in fact just as **** as yours, which they are if they are in and ELO like this. And take the idea that this is actually 'ELO heaven' and wreck them. From practising and playing with friends, this is starting to happen for me, and I am sort of enjoying being able to battle back a team of five, with 2.

Secondly, blaming the ELO of ragers wont help anyone, you just have to be nice in the game, treat them like the fools they are, let them get on with it, don't caps rage at them because that just gets a reaction etc etc.

First thing we all need to know:

The team that starts fighting or blaming the others is the one that will lose


I'm sure that you guys have seen this case:

The enemy team ace because of a small error, but the team has total advantage, they were winning. Because of one mistake, they start blaming each other, and that advantage disappears. The team loses.

below 1000, 1000-1400, above 1400

they are kind of different, but 1200-1400 is just like 1000-1200


below 1000 it is like playing against bots

1000-1400 it is like... well... most often you get a full team (s-top,jungler,APmid, sup+ad-bot) but not always

1400, nearly all supports get wards and most junglers gank


that are the differences that I have spoted, but wasnt over 1400 for long, just like 15 games
