1. Are you in your bracket (bronze, silver, gold etc.) forever once you enter it, or can you be demoted from silver to bronze for example. Or is it just things like, from bronze II to IV for example?
2. Does it mean anything when you're constantly getting at least +9 K/D ratios in bronze? Do I belong somewhere else? Am I destined to rise above this terrible place? Basically, does my match history say anything about the bracket I SHOULD be in?
1. You stay in your bracket forever and can never be lowered from gold to silver for example, but it's your division that can change so you can easily go from bronze II to bronze IV just like your example.
2. That's what people keep saying when they were low ELO that they "don't belong there"... if you really don't belong in bronze then you will eventually move up if not then enjoy your stay.
You very well will move up.... if youre actually good.
K/D can be VERY misleading. I mean playing a carry can get you a great K/D but you might just be getting a kill than running away leaving your team to lose the fight. Thats not a good player really. It could also mean youre good at laning or something and dominate but dont understand how to push or win team fights. etc etc etc. Basically a lot of kills doesnt mean youre going to win, hell you could dominate the whole game then make a terrible late game choice and throw the entire match of that.
So long as you keep this all in mind your scores are good and you should move up.
Well, lately I've been winning nearly all of my matches, with some pretty damn good scores. Even the games that I lose, you can see my score is pretty good. I do help my team whenever I can, and I do share the love across all teammates.
I FEEL like I perform at a higher level than the people I'm currently playing with, but I don't know if beating a bunch of dead horses with 18-4-13 in bronze holds any merit. I've only played ranked matches since S3 started, and I've got 1400+ normal draft games under my belt, which I've won majority of, so I should know a thing or two about winning, right?
I just feel like this is me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EYVepDBAC0
