Hey, I usually end up with trolls and people who seem as if they don't deserve to queue in Ranked games, wondering if it is better to stick with Solo queue or try and find someone to do Duo queue, either way I end up with like: 1 game win, the next a loss and my ELO doesn't change...

cheers.

EDIT: end up playing - Top/Jungle/Support (basically my mains).

Hey, thanks for the reply.
Well, the trolls and less desirables have been a common complaint for many Ranked players.
Honestly, there is no one solution to this problem, but duo queue is definitely a good way to drastically improving your chances of winning games, especially if both of you have:
1) Experience playing with each other
2) Communication - Skype, Ventrilo, etc

Picking champions that snowball well and getting your duo queue partner to help that process is extremely effective. For example, in my personal experience, a gank heavy jungler and high damage mid.
Of course, even with that, some games are just un-winnable.

Regards and goodluck,
TheLastsoloist

just to add to this, a good snowball would be something like top/jungler. play a champion who can also jungle, have your jungler gank top a few times to get you ahead then keep the lane pushed to their tower and gank mid. this will snowball mid while your jungler can gank bottom. As an example, go leed singa top, he has great sustain and harass and he can gank really well.

Interesting to note some discussion in PhantomL0rd's IRC:

Someone asked "What is the key to playing ranked?"
Another replied "Getting plenty of runes, learning all the roles and counter picks and owning a large selection of champions."

PhantomL0rd commented on this on stream and said that this outlook was rubbish. Instead you should just play normals until you find a champion you really love to play and then just get on ranked and try to play that champ as much as possible.

Now I'm not sure if I agree with either of those methods, but certainly honing your skills at a small number of champions seems to get people up there.

I would really like any help that you can give but only as much as you are willing, it is your free time. The roles that I play are usually mid or top then it would be adc then support then jungle. I recently bought ahri, shes quite fun and so mobile.

Hey Divinepwn,
I don't Know if solo is still part or AuV2, he wrote a thread saying he was leaving while we were dead, and he has only poked his head in here once or twice since. I'll send him a message in client to see whats up. otherwise Just say your favorite champions and i'll try to get some people in here who Play those champions alot.

Oh, ok. I'll watch this thread for a reply, but I will try to add you some time. Favorite champions though, I don't really have any favorites but my sort of go to champs is champs like, riven, gragas, nami, sivir, caitlyn, twisted fate (rare because countered easily), dr mundo if I jungle and scorpion (shen) but he is usually banned.
