Hovering between 2 and 2.4k for couple years now. I soloQ only, so at times it's random, but to hold >2.4k in soloQ you have to be pretty good and consistent. I normally have like 10-30hrs / 2 weeks and sometimes I don't play for 2-3 weeks. So sometimes I am pretty good and sometimes straight out trash. You will either have to play with people, or A LOT while keeping positive mentality to rise. Honestly, there are a lot of trash players even at 3k elo, just cause of the fullQ's they participate in. I know 3.7k elo players who legit only know 3 maps. Actually disgusting
I know the people you mean and I just mute people very fast. Toxic / annoying = instamute. I keep giving info and playing as good as I can. I just can't be bothered to deal with those.
Always stay chill, don't tilt, don't give up / throw and WWWWW will eventually come to you as well.
