Getting to Gold

Ok so I know what you're thinking "This noob took all season to get gold". No, i only play normals and wanted a maokai skin, so i decided to do it. (placed in Bronze 1) One quick question to everyone under gold - How the living fuck can you not get gold? I've had adc heim, adc rengar, ghost lee jungle. Some real bizarre random stuff, and with players who have not a fucking clue what to do out of lane. Honestly, if you are stuck below gold, can you please explain how it's possible, do people just afk every third game or something?
