If a bad player isn't doing well chances are pings aren't going to help him. Idk about the whole gold and above thing either. So you're below gold ? You can easily 1v5 silver and bronze if you're better than that elo, however bronze and silver is 70% of the playerbase, if you want to climb to plat or higher, even gold, you need to be better than your average player by a couple steps easily. Work on improving and climbing will follow.

Work on improving and climbing will follow. I've been plat for like 2-3 seasons idk where the "gold" thing is coming from. Trust me you can't "1v5" in plat elo unless you play and study the game 24/7.

You can mute keep your head down and go, 20 - 0 but at the end of the day there's only so much you can do. If you're 20-0 and lose the game, I think you're the issue. Are you using pings to communicate what you want to do ? When you're 20-0 people listen to you in gold and above.

I unfortunately had to deal with quite a few bad players over and over and it really ruined the experience for me. I could understand if it was a occasional thing but it honestly feels like it happens everytime i log on to play now. I mean I checked your match history and those matches were winnable, it's not like you're challenger, all games are possible to win. Maybe you should go in with a more positive mindset. You can't improve your teammates, however you always have something you can improve in your gameplay.

Ranked is fun for me. I just started playing again, I'm gold and bad now, but I'm improving and having fun. Just mute all and focus on improving yourself, the climb follows when you improve. Maybe you don't have the competitive drive anymore ?

: It's been more fun this year than the previous 2-3 years for me at least.
