You don't rely on his calls lol. You should keep watch of the minimap / ward the brushes yourself.
Calling MIA or SS is bonus. It's not his responsibility to call it :P
Don't play jungle fiddle; it got nerfed and isn't strong at all anymore.

Fiddle or even amumu are not that good in solo, as they need to have a team being with them.
Fiddle or Amumu player could do perfect ult, if the team is one screen-space away because of stupid "lets go 4man red buff instead of fighting eheh". Works for gank too, if your mates are not well placed, your gank will fail and you would even die.
Amumu cant kill by himself, fiddle cant survive.
GP Skarner or Lee sin can easily gank and kill ppl by themself and can tank/escape just the little amount of time your sleepy mates need to come in fight.

Also, its in my opinion easier to carry the game as mid/jungler than bot AD, and solo top is even harder.
The mid or jungler can help the lanes in trouble with a nice gank-kit (ahri, cassio, GP, skarner, lee sin), the AD cant move to mid or top as he has to farm, stay in lane and generally has a poor gank-kit.
The solo top has to stay in his lane, otherwise the enemy top would hit the tower. Some top also need to farm for the first 20 min of the game (ad sion, nasus) and cant waste time in gank.
That does'nt work like that if the other lanes go well, then a well farmed top will bring the difference in TF, but you have to keep in mind that at least one of the other lanes will fail.

Or if you re SURE you can carry the whole mid-endgame with your top, go for it, but its risky if it failed erywhere else on the map.

PS : dont hesitate to buy some ward, can protect you from gank or help your support. Not too much, it will affect your farm, but you will need it.
Never blame your team too hard, even it they fail. They could play worse then, or would try to show you they are not that bad and would try some ballsy actions that could result in more fail. tell them they play defensive, farm, give some advice about actions in teamfights etc.
English is not my native langage, I'm sorry about how painful to read my text are :c

I do not care if he calls SS or not, but when u got 3 ppl bot in front of you and get CCed by 4th person bot Lux from your jungle and ultied, there is not much you can do... while tard mid is standing at his tower huging.

I mentioned amumu and fiddle due to their aoe team abilities. You can be able to solo any1 from opposite team but to win there need to be won teamfight.
I do not think fiddle jungle is so problematic, ofc clearing times is not extra super, but you can quite well kill their jungle and steal buffs/dragon solo etc. And ulti is kill of at least 1 if enemy is not megafed.

I do not like to jungle gank/gold oriented junglers as they need to not have perma pushed lanes. And mumu/fiddle utility kit is quite strong.
On the other hand lee or mao CC gapclosers can be also gamechanging on pushed lane from our bush.. but you need some gold income above standard jungle clear to be able to tank properly in teamfights after doing inital move.

Yes, planning to buy/learn GP and become better on Cass/Karth performance.

The problem with league of legends is it's portrayed as a team game,but in reality it's a one to two man show. Carry hard and carry fast.

sigh THERE IS NO WAY OUT. I cannot count the nbr of games where I barely got any deaths (1-3 which is usually ideally 0 if my team hadn't fed the opponents) and my kills are higher than 6 ot 7. while my team gets 5-11 deaths.... WHAT THE HELL??? No matter how much you protect ur stats, IT DOESN'T MATTER because your team will feed ur opponent ! ThERE IS NO WAY OUT!!!

you're clearly not playing enough Tryndamere

Also I forgot the names but there's 2 players on NA that are at 1200- Elo with 90+% winratio. They basically win almost all their games then queue dodge to get their rating down again. If you can't get out, maybe you're meant to be there.

You named it.
There are 2 guys doing Duo in Solo queue and that's that.
If you wanna climb Elo in Soloqueue get yourself a mate, one of Riot's most ******ed ideas ever.

There's indeed sth wrong with Elo climbing outside full-team premade.
Dont call it "Elo hell", let's call it the:

"I've lost 10 games in a row against low Elo teams thx to one ******ed leaver/afk/first time/a**hole while playing marvelous and trying to guide my team.
And while some guys brush it off, cause it could also happen to the enemy, they fail to realize that it WONT to some/many of those players so they keep dropping more than they could climb up again" -situation.


Let's get real: While it's possible to climb to a spot you deserve, you need skills WAY beyond that.
If your skill could be measured around 1,5k-1,6k you need skills of 1,8k-1,9k in Solo queue.


But w8... "Elo"? You mean that thing they used to measure ppl 1 vs 1?
Isn't it totally off to use it in fights where teams couldnt be called a "unit"?
MMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmhhhh.....
