Is ranked play a different ballgame than SoloQ?

#1MrFailPosted 3/23/2013 10:36:03 PM
So I just hit level 30. Once I accrue enough IP to buy the 14 cheapest champs (which is a stupid system) I hit the ranked games.

What will happen my first few games compared to soloQ? Is team chat going to be happening much more frequently? More pings? More ganks? More wards?

Or is everything going to be pretty much the same and I'll get 3 ADC on the same team or some other soloQish things?

Just get a team together.

Have you been playing Draft or Blind?

Blind. And only one of my IRL friends has a lvl 30 account.

there is a bit more of a discussion because in Ranked you can only play Draft (not blind pick in Normal where you can just pick any champs and NOT see your enemies choices) which allows each team to Ban certain champions from beeing picked for the game, and then each team takes turns picking their choice of champs. this helps people pick counter picks (champs that counter another champ well).

Everyone generally will get their set role and choose accordingly. But SoloQ in ranked is the same as normal soloQ, its just people try a bit harder to do well/win because the outcomes determine their score/position in the community.

Use SoloQ to practice champs (i actually suggest bot or custom games, but everyone practices in normals now) to learn champs before using them in ranked (unless you are forced to because of bans :D)

Please don't go into ranked the moment you can, you are not ready. Also the minimum champ thing is there so that you will have a champ to play if by some chance all your champs get picked and banned.

30 levels of grinding was enough imo. And also, I would really doubt I couldn't get one of my 4 mains.

I think it's strange that you're at level 30 and somehow don't have that many champions already.

That. Especially since you've been playing Blind Pick. Start playing some draft to get used to a team strategy setting and get better with the champions you have.
