    Wow! Your points were really clear, the examples and word choice is easy to understand and your video helped a lot you brought a many things to mind that I didn't think about. Keep up the good work your doing great man!

      @Exil I just wanted to say thank you and this advice applies to all team based ladder ranking PvP games. Late to the show but great advice. I just started playing LoL but am high rank in another game and the hardest thing to get into low ranked player's heads is your in bronze/silver/gold because you're a bronze/silver/gold level player. So many think they're in low ELO because they're unlucky or there some little trick so when they ask the answer they're looking for is some trick like changing queue time or just do this simple thing and you'll carry and climb. Just consider that maybe what's holding you back is the Dunning-Kruger effect, maybe just maybe the reason you're asking why you're in ELO Hell when you should be asking 'how do I become a better player'. In the game I main there's a saying 'The META is the META for a reason'. From counters to builds, from roles to positioning; the META is the META for a REASON. The difference between the equivalent to LoL is Gold they don't know the META, Plat they know the META and can follow it, Diamond they understand the reason the META is the META.

      Completely agree with Xerosey. Not only that, it's very easy to relate to what you said in the video to my games provided I'm looking at the right areas. When you mention how much much a player improves over the course of three months or so, I only had to look back at a replay I've uploaded in that frame of time to be amazed at how "boosted" I was. lul. But the opposite sometimes happens as well. In a few select games, I've somehow not only dominated the lane, but also roamed very well as a top laner yet, now, roaming/ganking is one of my weakest points. Unfortunately, I don't have the full replay to investigate and recall what my thought process was. What else can I do to bring back those moments?

    Silver - a person who isn't that bad, but isn't good either, but thinks he is good, so he starts to blame his teammates for his mistakes

  • Not a Stalker
    Not a Stalker

    Rune System back then was brutal for beginners and even the champions. But i'm thankful i saw the transition of the old lol to the new one, it was an interesting experience. My advice for silver players that have been playing this game for too long but still cant get past their elo is...stop playing for a sec and watch a video on how to actually play LoL. Mindlessly grinding is not gonna help u that much in an ever changing game like League of Legends.

    You are a riven player. You can get challenger with iron level macro just by building muscle memory for her combos and playing the game like any singleplayer title.

    Now that I think about it this is good life advice not just game advice. Figure out what you're doing wrong look at how others do it better learn from it, do it step by step, put in the time. Have a good attitude to it. Those are powerful things for doing anything.

  • CyricRO

    Oh man, you talk about those runes. I had all of the runes, and when they were removed, I got this mediocre blue essence refund. It was a low point.

  • The Takedown

    Hey Man, I just Started the game a month ago and i got to silver 4 after placements, however i feel a little lost on champions and runes and what to do, so if you can recommend me something or create a how to basic for me to learn from i would be grateful, also am a midlaner playing annie, tried kassadin and Ekko and Malzahar but still couldnt play anything as good as annie

    • The Takedown

      @Joshua Conrad thank you

    • Joshua Conrad
      Joshua Conrad

      The Takedown I recommend using a tool like FaceCheck to give you a good idea on current meta runes and builds, as well as providing insights on your teams strengths and weaknesses on load-in. On top of that though, some of the best advice I have heard, as useless as it may sound, is to just keep playing. Practice those champs until every time you play them, it’s almost like second nature. Repetition is the best way to improve in something like this, even though there are going to be times where League is going to tilt you beyond oblivion. Best of luck to you, though!

  • majones117

    Back when I used to play the game in 2013, I tried playing ranked for the first time. I played 3 years of blind pick and loved it. I got placed in B2 and started the journey out of Bronze. I never made it to silver because of how much I got tilted by watching the other 9 players play. Sure it was easy, and I could carry a game assuming I wasn't in a role I didn't know, but sitting there and watching people ignore my advice on how to exploit a champions weakness then flame at the whole team about "we're not ganking for then enough" drove me from ranked and I went back to blind pick. I never cared about winning or losing in non ranked and just messed around playing what I enjoyed. Ranked showed me how mad Incan get a game and how much it takes for me to flat out quit.

  • Zenks

    I was a Dota 2 player for 4k hours, started playing LoL 3 month ago, i calibrated silver 3 and got gold 3 in 1.5 month, im not gonna lie - Dota 2 is so much harder then league but league has better champions design, objectives are more fun and overall gameplay is significantly better. I did not write this to brag about being good at LoL, by any means i am not good at it, i just want everyone to know that Dota 2 is mechanicly the hardest moba and it's not even close so if you struggle with LoL in microgame not macro - go play Dota for like 500 hours and you either die in the process or become good. Also this video is incredible and one more tip if you want to improve you should play a lot but even more importantly WATCH a lot, i think good formula is 30-40% of the time - actually playing league and trying super hard to actually follow the guides and tips, not just brain dead autopiloting AND 60-70% watch everything educational you can find on LoL.

      @AnimeFreakish78 you're forgetting the possibility of baiting them to engage with using your spell, hitting the creeps and the enemy at the same time and situations you want to push or counter a push. I'm sure there are others, but it's not like that's an actual rule to follow outside of: don't fucking fight when the enemy has an obvious advantage

    • Amkool

      Been in here for couple days and gonna get out in a week

    • AnimeFreakish78

      @David Kordesh here is my advice when i was hard climbing from silver to gold and plat my first time as a top riven main. Take the time to lookup and memorize the cooldowns of every matchup you play as well as the dmg scaling on the ability. This will maximize your trading knowledge as you should NEVER trade with someone who has cooldowns up over you, and ALWAYS trade with someone who is on cooldowns. Never use spells to farm the wave cause of this unless you have to!

    • Gunner_kek

      @David Kordesh i agree with your post. As for your question, i rate my game knowledge as fairly high. Because while i quit league for 3 years, i did play consistently since the game was released prior to that. So i only had to catch up on all the new champions and items. If i count all my ranked games ever since i started playing in season 1, i estimate it's somewhere around 900-1200 games. Add to that another 1900 normal games.

    If you wanna rank up from low elo (iron to gold) pick one jungle or mud champ and one trick him until you rank up to gold/plat. If you can't get at least G4 with kha zix/rengar/shaco or akali/zed/twisted fate then you just belong to your rank

    • YodaOnKet29

      Krystian Kukielczak dude people call different elos low elo but i will tell u one thing-nobody calls only iron-silver low elo usually people call low elo iron-plat and even low diamond

    Ive been in bronze since season 3. That's because I rarely played. Now season 9 I'm stuck. I have the right runes etc. AND I main adc role. The problem with me is that consecutively I loose games I should stop playing if I loose one game I should stop. I keep grinding hoping for a win.

    Laning is just fine but then for the love of god the jungler comes by, breaking my neck on top & midlane. But yeah with the trades, it is easy to do, but I got to remind me every 2 seconds of that one auto attack, like vision, jungler & minimap. A complete loss of focus.

  • Wyatt

    I just realized that I honestly dont care enough to climb lol. I'm never going pro (wouldn't even want to if I was good enough) minimum 9 hour a day gaming sounds miserable. Playing with better players sounds nice buuut... the overall toxicity of league at every level just sounds like the game never actually gets better. I feel like league is probably most fun playing/theory crafting with friends and trying weird stuff. Cant do that in ranked though

    • Tup

      Yeah but over a infinite number of games if you allways play well you will climb since in your team 4 players can suck since you play well on the other hand the other team has 5 possible idiots :P so in theory you will climb

    2014 - 2019 I am still a High silver or low gold player but its weird my friends would pick me as their choice in local tournament or betting matches and I would normally fight Platinum and diamonds but the laning phase is not hard for me to match their trades or out perform the enemy. I am flexible and can take any role except ADC, my main flaw however is I am" not dedicated" to the game and can be considered a "casual player".

  • Yahzuo

    I do really feel like the players in my team usually are worse than me. I don't understand. We're all the same elo in that game. Why am I supposed to 1v9 instead of 5v5? I understand that carrying a game when you're clearly way better than the enemy team would make it relatively easy to win games. But if you're all that same elo, or slightly better, its almost always a 1v9.

I spent a month barely sleep , practice everyday Just trying to be better , but nothing really changed..I still cried out so many time when I got rekt I really tried..
