I've been playing LoL for a while now and I've started maining Eve. I'm primarily a Jungle/tank/support player, and I have a few more wins than losses. I ward and, amazingly, when I do my teams does hella better. I can id when it's safe to push and when they're about to gank me, and when I enter team fights they tend to turn around. Unfortunately I'm apparently not using Eve right, which suggests that my wins with her are all due to low-ELO luck. This has made me paranoid about all my builds. The friend that told me this is fairly high ELO and says that I should be popping into teamfights, then popping out, then popping in, staying on the outskirts, but that I should be in the middle.

The point being, I feel like I've hit a plateau of capability, and while I'd like to be able to play with my friends I need to make sure I'm good enough to not drag them down. Anyone willing to help?

Your insulting your teammates instead of helping fight really helps us win!- said noone, ever. Seriously, if you have time to insult, you're the reason your team is losing.

What elo are we talking? What hero u talking about, u dont pop out and in teamfights with most heroes, but some you do.

Honestly, under 1400 elo, it's really easy, even with bad team, just take a strong carry, and dominate your lane, Like ahri mid, get 3 kills, 130 cs by 20 minutes, and then go around wrecking everyone while keeping farm at a higher level.

Indeed, I must agree with the above statement. Elo hell is only really bad if you let it be. While I must confess I have not been playing much Ranked, and my Elo is quite certainly not good at all (1270 for team) with the new Ranked system coming out, I wouldn't worry about it! So my first point: Elo hell is gone. It's now League system hell xD. Furthermore, at that skill level all you have to do is find a champion you can reliably win with (for me, Zed and Jarvan are very consistent, 80% and 100% win rates, respectively. You can just carry yourself to 1400 with the strategy of playing what you're good at.

Oh! And I'd be happy to help you. Just PM me if you're interested in some duo que, and we can try and destroy some noobs together.

You mean, like, I won't be warding alone stomping around duo ques? Because that's the other big problem. I spend my money warding and get way behind everyone. The only character where I pop in and out is Eve- while I do do some counterbuilding on her my main focus is dealing enough damage to determine teamfights or save teammates- namely because she tends to get bursted by the WHOLE TEAM when she's seen. Otherwise I tend to go Malphite Supertank.
