    Elo hell exists.

    Last split I managed to grind up to plat 3. But not after qualify. Qualify in spring split ended me at Gold3, which I failed afterwards, got demoted to Gold 4 and it took a fking good luck to manage to grind to Plat 3 afterwards.

    Since this split was fixed around qualifing stuff, I ended up in Silver 4 with 6 wins 4 losses. Yeah, I was kinda alright altho I was a bit dissapointed.

    The next match after qualify I had was today. Our top pick guy wants adc, I am not against it, I was 2nd pick and I called mid lane. It was a surprise when, after I called my middle lane, our top pick guy was talking with 3rd pick guy how "what midlaner you want". I was like "excuse me, I called middle lane long before also I am 2nd pick". They ignored that entirely.

    Then our 4th and 5th pick began. 5th pick didn't want to go support when our 4th pick called a jungler. I took my solo lane. Then our 4th pick picked a supportish hero Hel when our refusing-to-play support took Tyr. I was kinda okey because Tyr jungle and Hel support can work since Tyr is tanky overall and I took a 2nd warrior into Solo lane. Tyr decided to screw this over and he actually went SUPPORT leaving our Hel into JUNGLE role.

    ---

    Yet those 3 players were harassing me whole match long for "losing lane" on my solo because Hel as jungler is not a good option and I couldn't get normal ganks overall. They screamed about "report solo laner".

    I reported them back for screwing pick order phase and stealing other roles even tho I called my role like a normal person.

    -----

    P.S: we have actually WON that match, but the experience and things I saw during that match were beyond understandable.

    I know, it's still pretty easy to carry yourself out of Silver, I just want to say that Elo hell with such examples truely exists. And I feel sorry for all those who are stuck in this thing and can't get out of it because they are stuck with such teammates.

    You want an elegant solution?

    Don't play competitive!

    Ahha JK, some people like the rush of blood when playing competitive

    But, man... I play casual and always try to complete the team, whatever role we need

    Well to those players I say: Improve in casuals where you can carry 90% of silver games.


    Why do you need 60 FPS? The human eye can only see 64 megabytes of RAM.

    Do you think they care?

    I just had a second match in Silver 4 environment. Our support player (according to his profile page) plays this game 5-7 times per month. He never played ranked ever and he barely played at least 250 matches at casual conquest yet he decided to queue for ranked conquest this month and was wondering why everyone blamed him. Because he never rotated? Never warded?

    Like why is that player even allowed to queue for ranked at first place if he doesn't even play Smite on a regular basis (I don't think 5-7 matches per month is a regular basis).

    well I placed Silver IV and my ELO is closer to the Gold level (I get placed with high silvers and mid golds).

    Its all about carrying.

    If your support sucks, then just carry him with a good AD carry (I personally use Rama or Cernunnos if they arent banned)

    The only time I play comp is when I feel like absorbing salt to fuel my ego.

    welcome to the real world.. where no artifical measure to calcualte or estimate someone's skill will ever function accurately.

    i am easily at master level, but to get there i should farm through countless games along with random people who cant be trusted to get us there. (joust/etc)

    duel is far too boring for me to play it, tho maybe i should considering you can get some free gems from it.

    but that is far from the point.

    This isn't League or DotA.Solo carrying in SMITE is next to impossible.You could do it in theory with Kali or something.But in practice it is extremely difficult to impossible.Cause SMITE has such huge anti-snowball mechanics.Even great players can't do it when the enemy team is semi competent and has a proper team comp and basic skills.
    You don't understand.Edgar is the one in the hole.

    "Never one."
    "Without the other."

    Exactly.I get randoms like this all the time.I consider myself in conquest to be a high plat/low diamond in terms of skill at minimum(mostly cause I am very humble with stuff like this).But I have to get lucky enough to get teammates that have more IQ then my pet rock to get to a high rank.
