    KDA will not win you games, objectives do. Even if you are 2-5-5 but you focus on objectives then you will win unless your opponents are that good enough to figure out how you are taking the objectives. I main Swain top and I rotate lanes just to push objectives like push out bot lane so we can do baron or push out mid lane so we get fast turrets. I don't just tp in, kill and leave, I stay for objectives. If I TP botlane it will be when enemy top doesn't have tp to answer and I stick around for a tower and drake. I don't play many games but I am still climbing.

    ADC is the most important role in league so as long as you are a good hyper carry adc you will easily win games

    As long as you don't have a leaver/inter every game, you can climb no matter what.
    Some tips:

    • For toplaners: if you find yourself losing a lot of games, check your matchups and farming. If you improve your farming, you will get ahead in gold and win lane, and be able to roam. Also setting up a freeze or slow push is a must to know, there's a ton of videos to learn that.
    • Junglers: Try to track the enemy jungle, be there to countergank or if the enemy is ahead, try to invade when the enemy jungle ganks. Try to give your laners advantage with vision/objectives.
    • Mid: perfect CS and try to roam if possible. Help your jungle when they invade.
    • ADC: maxing your damage to the other ADC while still getting your CS. You need to know when to attack who, when to last hit or to shove your lane, and when to back. Play around powerspikes when you complete items, and powerspikes from levelling.
    • Support: support is a difficult role, in all honesty (support main talking lmao). To climb you should calculate summoner timers from your opponent, know powerspikes in botlane, make sure you have vision, be ready to roam (on certain champs this is literally the most important thing you will do all game). Get CS when your ADC is away, know when to poke the ADC and when the Support.
    I recommend checking out Mobalytics to see what you're already doing well and what you can improve.

    In my opinion it does exist but not in the way many people say it exists. you're not in elohell just because you're in a certain elo. it does happen that there can be alot of toxicity (more then normal) around the ranks zilver 1 to gold 5, gold 1 to plat 5 and so on. people get more frustrated because they are not getting to the rank they want or are afraid they will demote and then shout they are in elo hell.

    But when you are unlucky in the teams you get (its a team game, you shouldnt have to carry always) or when you are having an offday(s) you can lose alot of matches in a row. when you're suddenly at the point where you gain 14lp for a win and lose 23 for a loss i'd say you're in elohell. you need a huge winning streak to get yourself out of there and that can be very tough.

    The fact that elo boosting exists is proof that elo hell doesn't. If your account in Silver is being held back because of bad teammates a booster shouldn't be able to get you to Diamond. But since you can literally get boosted to Challenger, elo hell doesn't exist.

    No, but there are times where you feel like you're spending so many hours without getting much progress and it just feels like shit.

    I'm not too much of a gamer as much as I am computer enthusiast, but from what experience I have had in Overwatch and CS:GO, (sorry not much about league), elo hell is really a thing from my perspective. It comes at a rank where everyone feels that they are better than their current rank, but at the same time believe that because they are so good and should be above their rank, do not practice nor try to get a higher rank, thinking that they can simply not try and win and rank up. This mass psyche of "I should win, but don't need to try" compounded by many people will block those who are actually trying to rank up and lead to poor matches. I don't know much about league, but rest assured it happens in many competitive games.
