here is my story.
I started to play ranked games so I wasn't good at begining, now I am 2x better, sometimes carry my team to win, but however I can't get rank up b/c:
1. Most common problem is ppl who do troll picks - ok you can leave w/o it starting, but you can't do it much only 2 times a day, so lets say it solved.
2. I am teamed up with totally newbies - this problem I can't get rid off. Its not even funny if your pick is last so you are support 80% and you go in lane with AD carry who doesn't even know what last hitting means. Its so unfair, I mean if I am lower rating shouldn't my teammates be for example higher rating and know how to play? I don't understand system of matchmaking at all...
3. Leavers. This problem is most painfull, I really don't understand why Riot allow ppl to leave games w/o getting strong penalty. I suggest 1 idea, if player leaves during the game and team lost he get all teams -rating total and rest get -0 (and he get +0 for win and still get -rating for leaving). When those leavers would actually stay on their rating, now its just sad to play when you know you have like 20% chance to win from begin.
Maybe someone can actually give some advices how to rank up or solve this problems.
p.s. I am really not bad player and I feel I can do much better than 1050 rating...
