      @Jesse Mueller HAHAHA! I was thinking the same thing. In what world is sitting on your ass playing vids, even at the competitive level, considered a sport or requires athleticism? LOL

    • Haywood Jabloami

      ​@SneakyMcPete Is it even the same game it was in S1? I started playing at the end of S2 and got to gold 2 in a matter of weeks playing as support. I started playing Jng in S3 in order to have more presence on the map, to better impact the game for my team and to help the lanes that were struggling (or starting to tilt). I ended S3 in platinum... Then, EVERY single season after 2-3, Riot would rework the champions I mained and the Jungle itself. Like, COMPLETELY changed how jungling worked... I basically had to relearn how to play every season, which became extremely frustrating and difficult to continue to improve. Mostly because my attitude towards the game soured around S6-7 when every solo q game I played had toxic spaz kids, feeders, afk'ers or I'd just get destroyed by Riots newest 'OP champ of the week' because of all the ridiculous Buffs/Nerfs and unbalanced broken new champs they'd pump out. Jungling aside, the more you practice, the better you'll be at virtually anything in life. So if this kid spends every free minute playing league, of course he'll be better than your average person with a life away from gaming...Until acute carpal tunnel syndrome strikes at the age of 25 and he's left with a mangled claw for a hand.

      @Exil Sure it does espeically in physical sports. Genetics plays a huge part on how well you respond to recovery/rest from training. Your ratio of fast-twitch vs slow twitch muscle fibers. Your also underestimating mind sports as well. Grand champion magnus carlsen beats kasparov at 13 years old in practice matches. Von newmann was the only human who has made significant contribution to 13 fields of mathematics(Still the only human and physically quanitified his ability to understand 70% of all mathematics currently in development at his time) and surpassed mathematicians in intellectual might when he was just a 11 year old. Sure anyone can improve but can anyone be the best? Absolutely impossible otherwise you are not the best anymore. The difference lies in your genetics/upbringing.

      @Exil Exposing the hard work behind legends is very smart, but to say that genetics play a little to no factor is plain dumb, im sorry to say but if you have 100 IQ or less there is no chance you´ll get to challenger.

    im 14 and im not that bad of a player, but i couldn't play like a pro, too much for me :D and tbh my dad is 49, and he plays fifa on my brothers ps4, he played other shooting games on xbox360 years ago too, just because of my brother, he plays league, fifa, csgo, my sister played league, but she isnt very good at it, she does have knowledge but doesnt understand roles and stuff, and my mom doesnt really played any game :D

    I have to disagree, of course some people have a bigger talent by just having a better understanding of what they are focusing on. Some of us could've been one of the best baseball player in the world, but we never tried playing it. There is and always has been talent. Which is just good material you have to work with. 80% work 20% talent. Roundabout. Other studies have shown that talent is a factor. Way more studies.. and we all know that.

    I don't see much deference in sports and e-sports. It just depends where the effort is being put into it. Like, sitting in front of the screen all day, I find no different then kicking that soccer-ball day out in the field. Or tho, you burn less calories with e-sport, having to do other workouts along the way. Note - Coming from a non competitive player.

    Well if you play the game a lot and study it you can reach challenger, your age don't really matters. Any kid with more than 11 years can master any game if they want too.

    Maths says you are bound to climb anyway if you have an average skill. you only need 51% winrate, since season 3 it's really hard to drop by having a bad day (i remember going 1500lp => 700lp in two bad days (gold => bronze V)) And with 4 other people on your team: you have one less chance to have a bad/inted player than the other team. (also have 4 people who can also be carrying you unlike a 1v1 type of game) you can get high plat and even diamond by just playing a lot and doing the statmath game. If you include Queu dodge based on team comp, it may even make it faster since league is much less IG strategy focused than games like dota (were you have to cut trees, use high/low ground, etc). Meaning team comp (aka: draft) plays a big role since League is a more instant, action and fight oriented MOBA.² ²eddit: in a sense that there is no "Pyrrhic victory" in League. you can press B anytime to heal and come back and you do nto lose gold or exp on death. The only question you ask yourself before attacking an enemy is: can i solo him? is he isolated or can i manage his allies? if yes to both then go in.

    Your not an athlete if you play chess. Your not an athlete if you play computer games, even if you make money from it.

    I think more than anything, he has the right mentality. That is the simple key to success. The right mentality

  • 4uitoo

    I'm 12 years old and play LoL. My brother taught me to play, right now I'm in Silver. Imma try and get to challenger earlier than him xd

    • apenas um nome de canal

      You just need to study about the game and play a lot. I just don't know if it's worth it, there are WAY better games that you can play out there.

  • Mj Lorino

    OK SO, If he started playing during season 1, and is 15-year old at the time of this vid, then that means he was 5-6 when he started playing, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand SO how?

  • Armistice

    One of my senior was also 15 when he hit challenger.

  • mschecter 007

    Congratulations mate! I stumbled upon this video and was absolutely taken by surprise when I saw that someone about my age already hit challenger. I could never get there. I may be able to farm close to 10 cs a minute pretty much every match, (I have hit 10+ cs/min a couple times before), but I could never pull off the necessary clutch plays in order to win and rank up. I have had well over a year of experience with this game, and I still suck. I have learned many champions. Hell, I am a mastery 7 Katarina player, and I am still hard-stuck Bronze. I could never pull off the pentakill that you did starting from 12:30. I even made up this quote once to convince myself that there is a lot more to League of Legends than I thought: "It's not the mastery level on the champion, or the cool skins that makes a player good, it is the player who plays the champion that makes all the difference." Even though I realize that it is the player that makes the champion perform, I don't have the natural talent in League of Legends in order to play at that level. I guess I will just enjoy being hard-stuck for life. But whatever. This game is still one of, if not my favorite PC game I have ever played. So I hope you continue to shine and thrive in the challenger ELO you are currently in. I wish you luck, and hope that you may make it big someday, like the pros.

    Every high elo player has the same tone of voice. This video confirms it.

  • Darduel

    well its no surprise he plays the game since he was 6, its obviously not about talent just about playing a lot and playing a lot of video games over all, grown up pros also play from like season 1 and have previous experience from other games.. I play league from season 1 but I was never that focused on ranking up, I also played WoW before.. people are surprised there are teen pro gamers nowadays as if seeing kids play video games is so rare, im 24 and i remember playing video games as a kid too (6 years old and such)

  • Furret

    Busio is legit like me 15 started league in season 1 loved sc2 but I just suck and I am still gold xD

    • mschecter 007
      mschecter 007

      I almost hit diamond in SC2. That is a game I played since I was like 9. I started the Brood War version when I was like 5. So that has been my main PC game. But now I came into lol in the recent years, and am hardstuck.

  • Infinity

    Although i agree that most of what it takes to be this good of a player is effort and actual practice there is definitely an undeniable DNA factor. We all agree practice makes you better but how much better? that depends on how quickly you pick something up. To be at a pro level there has to be something unique about you that nobody else is able to reach. For every single pro, there are thousands or millions of others that practiced every day just like them and pushed themselves to be the best player but never reached the same level. A certain set of traits and genes are the true difference between pros and other challengers.
