Hit gold about a week ago

Basically haven't won since. I don't understand why. I still play my usual champs, do the same strats, and on my climb up to gold have played against gold players and done just fine. Now suddenly I can't win to save my life, and it's almost always because of me.

I main jungle so sometimes I'll try new strats for wards and counterjungling, but nothing is working. I just can't seem to stay ahead of the game. If I ward his blue, he wards the grass leading up to it. If I ward my red, he walks through a different path to gank me.

I'm on like a 10 game losing streak since I hit gold. Thank God I'm not ranking down, but still this is pathetic and I don't understand how I'm suddenly floundering when I'm simply playing against slightly better people than I was just over a week ago.

I had the same thing happen to me. I was in promo for silver 2 then dropped down to silver 5 and now I can't win more than 1 in a row.

I think it is a mental thing

I did the same thing right at the very beginning of when I hit gold, and I recently did the same in plat

you get really really hyped and play really hard to get the next tier, and then you sort of plop down. Take a break and play some norms or something, have some fun.
