Okay, I think I'm ready for ranked.

#1Treye012Posted 6/5/2014 6:32:42 PM
I've been playing for a couple months, have a full set of T3 runes for Top, ADC and Support, as well as some presentable runes (T2 Hy-Pen) for mid. I'm missing the required champs needed to play ranked but I'm gonna work on buying some more champs now rather than breaking the bank on T3 Hybrid Penetration runes.

Is there anything I should expect in ranked that doesn't happen in normals?

Honestly I'm just sick of all the "it's just normals :p" people that I've been running into. I don't care anything about rank, I just want to have some good matches with teams that're actually trying.

Be ready for the rage, both from you and your teammates/enemies. Ranked is almost guaranteed to make you hate at least some portion of humanity for a decent period of time at some point.

There is a high chance that someone will ask you to violently take your own life during placements. This can still happen in regular ranked matches, though not as frequently.




That's about it, gl.

Agreed with what everyone said here so far, but I will also add we may see you come back ranting about your bad teammates when you are probably at fault too.

Good luck though!

Just remember that if you end up in Bronze V with 0 LP, like a CERTAIN person, it wasn't bad luck.

Yeah, but remember runes don't mean much. Its ability and knowledge with a splash of luck.

Best tip i can give you. DO NOT GET MAD. Calm down and play. Don't argue; just play. Don't stand and talk; just play.

rank is all mental.

So basically ranked just sounds like normals, just worse.

Lovely.

this

if your team gets mad and wastes time angry typing rage faceing each other, it would be a good idea to at least try to diffuse the situation. If you don't at least TRY, then you kinda deserve to lose with them because you aren't doing everything you can to win. If they don't stop however that sux report them after etc.

Pretty much this, expect for it being a wave of luck and not a splash imo. Lol

I try that all the time as is.

It really is amazing how many matches devolve into angry comments directed at each other.
