I just hit 30 yesterday. My goal is to reach challenger and go pro. I have this nice rig here with great Internet. My ping is never over 80. I have all the tools needed for success now I just need to train. I'd like any advice from people who have already made it to challenger. Thank you sirs ^_^

I don't think there are any challengers here.

Most are bronze/silver, a good amount of golds, a few plats, and a few diamonds.

i was in challenger a while back. it is really hard to stay in there cuz the requirements are really high. unless you have 24/7 free time dont think about stayin in it. you have to play a set amount of games a day or you will lose placements. also once you get into challenger you dont get to be a pro. they are totally separate.

take it from me I just retired from being a pro gamer on league. i am going back to school.

You're going to make it. It's not that hard. Be sure to quit you job/drop out of school as soon as possible. You can't have anything holding you back.

I was told that once you move up a tier you any fall out of it? Like once you hit gold you can never go lower than gold v or whatever?

challenger tier is a separate beast. it only takes in the top 50 players. if you dont play you will get moved down in placements due to points. if you dont play at all you will get booted out of challenger same as if you lose too many points.

Also how do you get noticed? By streaming? I was thinking of starting to do that once I got to at least gold. I don't think anyone would watch a silver streamer lol.
