Trouble in "Hell"? Not sure what to do to get better? A few simple tips will give you the head start in getting that Gold badge for Season 2.
Normally I would be giving advice on upcoming patch notes and how it will affect champions in the current meta, but I decided to do something a little different to help out those of you who may be stuck in this so called “Hell”.
First off, I recently acquired platinum (1900 ELO, Top 1915) while my rating in Season 1 was non-existent and my rating for most of Season 2 was in the 1200-1400 brackets, I managed to claw my way from 1250 all the way up to platinum at roughly +12 ELO per win (trust me… it was annoying). But how do you do it? There are feeders and leavers and AFKers and Ragers. Below will be a guide, albeit long (its very long), with a few of the basic tips along with general rules that you should always follow. Future Articles will include the different lanes and most effective methods of winning them.
A commentary about learning the game and breaking out of Elo hell
What’s up players? So I’ve been playing ranked matches lately – and I figured I’d take y’all along for the ride.
So far, my current goal was met. And that was to get me back up to 1200 rating. I’m now aiming for Silver. Ultimately, my goal will be for gold – but that won’t be for a very long time down the road.
I’ve been playing this solo, I haven’t duo queued since I first started playing ranked in season two. I’ve been wanting to do this on my own, and progress as a player…and not be boosted for bragging rights. Before playing seriously, I had 2 wins and 5 losses – I’m currently at 12 wins and 11 losses – which is the reason I started off behind the 8 ball.
I haven’t taken this game seriously before hand, and never tried to learn how it works, or what decisions to make and when. But now it’s all changing. I’m maining AP mid – and mostly as Ahri. Lablanc is my 2nd choice.
So now we’re all on the same page of where I’m at – it’s time to move up.
