Which means at first it sets you at a baseline skill leve, which is somewhere in silver. And then, when you lose you get lower, when you win you get higher. It moves a lot at first, and then it stabilizes around an mmr level such that you get a 50% WR. Of course no one actually gets to 50% winrate, because of your evolving skill and other uncontrollable factors, but that's how it is. And personally I think you should start playing ranked when you start having fun in this mode. If it's so hard it's frustrating, then keep playing normals. However, if you really want to learn and improve and don't mind the difficulty of ranked, go for it. And you're not supposed to beat a smurf, it's just plain unfair as you said. Best you can do is try to figure out what makes him so good. What does he do differently ? Don't feel bad if you don't know, most of what they do better is far from obvious, it's a lot of subtle things. And as what to do, I don't know. When I played a role that required last-hitting, I always did a 10-min last-hitting practice session in practice mode. That helped a lot. Now I play jungler so I generally go straight into ranked and only play a few games, and I do a 30 minutes break minimum if I lose to avoid tilt (losing one game makes you more likely to lose the next one because of the impact on your morale, even if you think you're not that tilted). Personally I also got into ranked as soon as I hit level 30, because of the anticipation as well, and got really destroyed, but I sticked to it even though I was at 10% winrate at some point. After a few dozens games I got put where I belonged, which was bronze 4, and I had better games. And I don't regret doing that. Overall, matchmaking adjusts more quickly in solo/duo, and I'm also finding that games tend to be more balanced there. Anyway, just my personal experience, do with that as you will. Good luck, have fun !
Thanks for the tips. I’ve honestly only messed around in the practice tool when I purchase a new champ. But, I’ll go in and complete one bot match with them and then try them out in a normal match. I’ve never actually practiced a particular skill shot over and over. Guess I really do need to “git gud”, haha. I’ll definitely remember to take the break after a loss to prevent getting too tilted.

Thanks for the reply. Sound advice. I guess maybe I’m expecting things to “click” way too quickly for the amount of experience I have in the game. Your explanation of the ranking system makes me think that there is more randomness than I realized before. It’s possible that the good matches I have had were just that, better circumstances for the skill level that I have. Those good games that I have had may have, in fact, been lucky games for me. I come out of those confident and then when I hit something that is more challenging it throws me a curveball. Gives a lot to think about. I really appreciate the feedback.

Thanks for the advice folks. I have a lot more left to learn about the game. And that’s fine. I know I’m still learning. Because the game does not allow you to play ranked until summoner level 30, there is a build up and anticipation that once you hit 30 you are now ready to progress to the next step, which is ranked... And obviously level doesn’t necessarily equate to player skill level. I still feel it’s unfair to be expected to do well against someone that is smurfing, but it is what it is, I guess. Smurfing is a problem that most most MOBAs have. And even though he was there, we did still ultimately win the match. Sounds like there’s no best answer on where to go from here besides just play the game more. However, I feel that I don’t understand how matches are made then. I’m seeing now that it doesn’t simply go off of your rank and summoner level... Which confuses me. MMR = ??? I should make a habit of doing one Normal and then one Ranked?
