I've been finding duo partners but only 1/6 of them have actually been good enough to win. I tried ad carrying but its hard mid-late game because I either never get a full team or theres 1 or 2 feeders. I tried playing a cheap burster(ryze) and I go 13/2/1, but what do you know we are down in kills and towers... I tried playing support and letting the noobs deal with themselves and then they blame the support for not pushing or the "look at your k/d/r noob"... I just need some advise on how to win more efficiently.

Can anyone help me? I play Ashe/Malzahar/Ryze/Sona/ and the free Maokai(best results are duo as him).
Currently at a low of 750 elo..

Play a carry/offtank, don't play anyone like a tank or support that relies on your team.

Who are some carry off tanks? I'm thinking about saving up for akali or another counter-carry and duo-ing with someone who can carry well. I tried Ryze today and early game he can shut down big heros like annie and other squishies in mid.

If anyone is serious about getting out of elo hell pm me.

Honestly, i can only recommend Mordekaiser, he so good if you can win lanes.

Also, Wards.

Wards are ******** OP man.

Yorick, Udyr, Urgot, Irelia, Xin Zhao (Tanky dps xin, not glass cannon), lee sin.

Anyone that makes a good solo top is a pretty competent shovel to dig yourself out of ELO hell.

If you can 1v2 with your champion, it will be even easier.

Don't play champions reliant on your team to do well. Supports can't carry a game. Tanks can't carry the game. Play characters with hard damage.

If you're playing characters like Ashe/Vayne/etc. and still not getting out of "elo hell" then there's fundamental flaws in your play.

Can you check out my gameplay as Ashe then? Here's my most recent video after getting tips from alot of people. http://www.mediafire.com/?m47w25h9h7itqkh

I disconnected and the team lost.

No seriously, play Mordekaiser or Kat, they tear heads at low ELO cuz no one knows how to stop them. This is all assuming you know what you're doing. No one's infallible, so in all likelihood you're at 750 ELO because you're doing something wrong, what that is though, is for you to figure out.

People like Ezreal, LeBlanc, and anyone who can bascially combo a d00d down from full to dead in one go.

Having some form of tower killing ability helps.

Ranged is +1, Tanky is +1.

I still say that Mordekaiser, Katarina, and Ezreal are probably your top picks for full on ELO hell carrying.

If you can manage to get good with akali shes really good in ELO hell against teams that dont have TONS of dps.. She has been carrying in ranked with me im 8/1 right now with her.. Also just find a friend that you know doesn't suck... 3 possible baddie randoms is better than 4... Also maybe consider also finding an excellent lane combo for you and your friend such as say support/ranged AD since that seems to be the meta currently..
