: If you want a sincere answer, /mute all at the beginning of games is probably the most efficient way to rank up and/or become better at the game. Nothing your teammates can say will make you a better player, and the more time you spend typing is less time spent focusing and fixing your mistakes. There's a lot of doubt that goes into muting everyone every game, so much so that I've actually opted to disabling my enter key in league using another program just so I can read chat, but not feel inclined to type, though this mostly has to do with toxicity issues, and letting myself talk every several games to which I still eventually got perma'd on my other account for saying "so I'm gonna get spam pinged all game by the zil who never hit a stun in lane, give me a fucking break," while some guy yelling racist anti-american insults in all chat in all caps three days ago (which I submitted a ticket about immediately and still haven't gotten a response back) still gets to play the game. This "chat war" problem will continue existing at every elo, and one of the most important things to remember is that the only variable in your games that is under your control is you. Another thing is that you are, for the most part, guaranteed to lose 33%-50% of all of your games regardless of your input, only due to the fact that the enemy team is statistically better than the rest of your team and not much else. At higher elos team composition does come into play, but in this meta and at lowerish ranks picking any of the handful of pick/ban champs will put you in a decent position, or try to get a small pool of champs with drastically different playstyles for whichever role you play, which will both give you at least one good option to counter whatever the enemy team picks (or what your team needs the most,) and it will also help you play better against those types of champions. In the long run, as long as you're winning arbitrarily more games than you're losing you will eventually rank up, but I completely understand how the inclination to wage a war in chat feels and attempt to surrender at 15 minutes. I won't tell you that surrendering early is either right nor wrong, because some games you scale better and can outfarm the enemy team from behind, and some games the chances of winning from behind are slim to none. Being able to interpret which of these two categories you fall under based on team compositions will not only make you a better player as well by encouraging you to play to not only your champion's strengths and weaknesses and those of your laner(s), but also to the strengths and weakness of both teams as well, not to mention you'll often save yourself the hassle of playing an extra 15-20 minutes of a lost game. I'm not sure how much of this advice will prove useful, but I hope I was at least helpful in an emotional/technical way. While I can't bring myself to do it myself, both out of doubt and sheer laziness, try a few games of starting off with /mute all and see if that improves your winrate at all, and at the very least if it doesn't seem to help you win more games, it'll make you more aware of your own mistakes and help you become a better player in the long run.

Yes, I probably should mute all at the beginning. For some reason people piss me off real easily so seeing the enemies all taunting my team and tilting us I should just keep them muted for my own sake. But sometimes my teammates say some real useful things sometimes which makes me not want to mute them. I do want to look into this program or whatever it is to disable my enter key though in game. It will keep me out of a lot of trouble.
: im the same way. but in these low elo games i legit can only learn weird interactions between abilities and characters. honestly i dont think you need to change. just get to the elo where you can learn again. strive for that top stop. that where eagerness will reutrn

Go work out at the gym between 9:30 and 2pm, if you don't have a job. If you do, fit it in after work. Alternate muscle groups, and get to the point where you can lift your bodyweight with one hand (each). Take pics for IG progress tracking Meet people at the gym. Network with them. Go do cool s%#! Play some league. Watch some league. Stop getting mad, and build yourself, as well as an audience. Thank me when you make a passive income and have more time for league + working out.

I've just started going to the gym recently! My diet is a little better as well. I still wake up at 2 pm every day and have no social interaction whatsoever though.

: if you want to be less mad, get good at the game, cos you know you are good and you'll end up climbing in the long run regardless of how bad your team is doing. Maybe get a coach or something?

I'm not that bad at the game. Or so I think... Since I've taken a break I have lost a good amount of my skill but I can still stay in low plat which I don't think is that bad?

: You are, in some sense, a terrible person. Your anger scares me, and that you’re aware of your bad behavior makes it no less culpable. You should probably see a therapist: I doubt that you react like this only to League.

You're probably right. I was going to therapy for a while but then I stopped for some reason and should probably go back tbh.
: Take a week off from playing league. That will probably fix it.

That will probably fix it. Thank you for the suggestion! I've actually taken a month off the game whilst on vacation and stuff. I was so excited to come back and at first it was GREAT! I played norms with friends to get the feel of the game and caught up on the meta and such. But, I missed the competitive aspect. Though it makes me mad. And now I'm back to where I was. :(

I actually got hacked, and Riot unbanned me and I got my account and stuff back
: You have to do lots of practice, there is no better way to get better than just learning. Get caught by skill shots a lot? (blitz/thresh hooks, ahri ball, etc etc) then learn to step left and right, watch their animations and their placement. Are they trying to get closer to you than they were before? They're probably getting you into their range to attack. Step away or to the side, or behind minions if it's blitz/thresh. I'm looking at your match history and you're not that bad honestly, you have 3 mast 7 champs (that I can see) What do you think is the biggest thing that holds you back from learning? Do you make the same mistakes? Do you not ward enough? I'll try to give you as much advice as I can! I'm no pro but I have gotten **much** better from when I first played!
I tilt so easily is my biggest issue, i have no clue when it started or why. I use t never tilt now all I do is tilt after any little thing and it makes me flame and lose.

: That's a different story then. If you got unbanned manually by Riot, then yes, you will get rewards such as gold border. If you don't, contact support because that would definently be a mistake :)
Noted, thanks for the help everyone!
: If you were hacked and Riot Support helped you get the account back then you'll probably still qualify.

Yeah, I got hacked and got a 14 day suspension last night and it just now got lifted

: Well, as a support main, you're picking the wrong supports. At bronze and silver, if you're depending on your team's performance you're going to be dissapointed. While what I'm saying sounds toxic I'm just trying to be logical here. Statistically speaking Bronze are the players who have no clue what they are doing. I myself spent a long time in bronze before I was able to grasp game knowledge now I can easily and comfortably sit in silver without fear of demotion. In silver you have sort of a hodge podge, those who just grasped the game, those who have been in silver for a long time, but lack the practical application to move forward, and those who aren't necessarily good at the game but don't realize it because they had some lucky games. Sure there are those that sit in silver for a bit that belong in gold or whatnot, but that's mostly just because they aren't fully committing to the game. You want play making damage dealers at the moment learn the ins and outs of the game flow and be able to adjust to what will pull in the best results. If you get to gold, you need to start considering the Leonas and Karmas and such.
Would Lux be good to carry my lane as a support?
