How to climb in League of Legends | Challenger interview

The journey just begins | League of Legends: Way to Challenger

My very first attempt to climb to the Challenger League in LoL was in Season 4. I remember that I was playing semi-hardcore to Platinum Elo League and then I thought – Why would not I try to climb up to the challenger? Then I just chose the strongest champion that was in the meta and just starts mastering it. My choice falls to the Syndra because she was unbelievably good. In those games where I cannot choose Syndra or when she was banned, I picked champions like LeBlanc or Zed, I was quite familiar with their kits, so I could show some good results.

Before starting to play Syndra I have watched a million of VOD’s from my icon of video gaming – Bjergsen. I learned all matchups and behavior patterns against EVERY champion in League of Legends, and then slowly grinded the games. With each game, I learn some new features, gain experience and just became better in micro. And roughly one thousand games later I have ended up in the Challenger League ūüôā

As soon as I hit the high Elo, I started to think outside the box and slowly learning new champions. And, of course, was dropped down back to the Diamond League. This was the point where I understand that you can grind one champion to achieve your goal, but if you really want to master League, then you need to extend your champion pool up to the 30-50 champions. So I started the long process of finding the right heroes, who work nicely for me. As you see this is an incredibly hard process and never even consider starting it if you are not ready to be work at lol boosting service. Do not be too strict for yourself, everyone has games where he had 20 deaths, even if you are an awesome player.

Challenger – what goals you need to set to climb so high

It is not working this for me. You do not need the clear goal to become challenger, but you need to feel the will to find the proper enemies that will be equal or even stronger in their micro or macro control of the game. So if you will feel that, sooner or later you will end in the league you belong. But the process of self-enhancing will not end here. Nobody loves to lose, so you will learn new tricks, master new champions and learn on your own mistakes. That will increase the level of your gaming skills and this Elo league will become not so good for you, and you will start the whole process again. Until you reach League of Legends Elo Heaven – Challenger League.

It works the same way in any traditional kind of sport, so why it would not work the same here? Especially considering that the cybersport was equaled to the classical sport!

How to keep yourself in a good form

Practicing is the key. If you are playing on one of the core roles, then you MUST train your Creep Slaying skill. In the forgotten times, you were needed to grind public games, where various scenarios were created by players and trying to slay EVERY creep on the lane. But right now we have Practice Tool, where you could create a simulation of these situations and continuously CSing until you become GOD-gamer in this part of the game.

If you have a friend who is playing incredibly good, you could ask him to play on various champions against you in private lobbies, to train all possible match-ups. Like I met some problems against Ryze during my way to the High Elo bracket, so I have asked my fellow guy to practice this matchup. We played like 5 games where he totally destroyed me, but then I slowly started to adapt to this champion and to the 10th game I could even win against him if I saw a little miss plays.

Types of players: Good and Bad

ANd the final thing that I want to learn you, that in the league there is no such thing as Aggressive or Defensive play style. There are only Good and Bad players and you need to remember it. You cannot play on the aggressive champion defensively and show the same amazing results as an aggressive player because these champions were not CREATED to be played this. So if you are going to pick a defensive champion, then play defensively. It is all about knowing the right strategy and behavior pattern on the champions from your champion pool.

Challenger in EVERY region

As you may know that the skillcap of various regions could differ. And that is why it is so interesting to start play in another Region if your connection could give you a proper ping. I achieved my Challenger only in NA servers and now I moved to the EU, so I am pretty hyped about all my possibilities. Right now I can hit Challenger on so many servers! From the EU to Russia, and I think that this will be an awesome adventure! Every region has its own meta and that is meaning that I will play against so different champions, and only this one experience could give me so much! This experience will be extremely valuable on the professional stage, where I and my team will face opponents from every country I can imagine.

But remember that you WILL face a lot of burns out, whining and toxicity. So be ready to face all the sins of the LoL gaming society! But remember that is your final goal to become a professional player, streamer, youtuber or anyone else, you need to be respectful in any situation. Remember the recent situation with the Ceb from Dota 2, and you will understand your responsibility for each word you have said.

ADC will be slightly buffed in the next LoL patch

For all those tired of visiting bruisers and mages from the bot lane, then you are in luck. AD conveys may observe growth in prominence following fans to champions at Patch 8.24b.

Although he is an AD carry, Corki continues to be played almost exclusively from the mid lane for a previous couple of years before falling from favor. However, with forthcoming modifications to his Missile Barrage greatest, Corki could regain popularity among gamers. Together with his Missile Barrage foundation damage increased in all positions, together with the specific”big one” rocket getting another damage improve, Corki’s poke damage will get considerably more dangerous.

LoL patch incoming

Tristana and Varus will also be going to find a little excess firepower in the kind of fans. Tristana’s Explosive Charge capacity is set to get fans in the kind of higher foundation damage, maximum harm, and harm ratios. These modifications are Riot’s effort at”enhancing Tristana’s capacity to blow people up in the mid-game.”

Much like Tristana, Varus’ forthcoming changes aim to fortify his”early and mid-game spikes” Varus’ Blighted Quiver, and String of Corruption ultimate will get damage increases in the skills’ first couple of positions, making Varus’ early poke damage throughout the laning phase considerably more powerful.

When these fans surely make Caitlyn, Corki, Tristana, and Varus more powerful, we’ll need to wait till Patch 8.24b’s launching to find out whether they’ll give these AD carries enough firepower to compete against the bot lane Yasuos and Neekos currently drifting around Summoner’s Rift.

How to rise Elo in SoloQ | Jungle

Hello, my dear friends, the first thing you need to know, that this guide is created for the Junglers, here you can find something new.

Jungle | SoloQ

lol ranked

This is a guide, where I tried to concentrate all available information, that is needed to¬†rise¬†Elo, playing as a Jungler. In this guide, I will focus firstly on players of Bronze and Silver league, but I’m sure that many players of greater divisions can find something interesting here.

Introduction

We all love to play in League of Legends, this is interesting, fascinating and funny. But sometimes SoloQ ranked matches is a real pain in the ass. All that I will write down here, is focusing on the one main purpose – raising Elo. To reach this goal you need to play mostly¬†on¬†one role, and play a lot. You need to carry four more guys, that probably even does not know how to play in LoL, You need to take a responsibility for all that is happening in a game, correct others’ mistakes, play not only for yourself but for the whole team.

SoloQ | How to rise Elo playing as Jungler

jungle champions lol

Everyone set their own goals when they start LoL. For someone, this goal is just to gain pleasure from the game, for someone – to add salt in games. They play normal games, or ranked, solo or in a team, but they play mostly for fun. But we need to chase another goal – to rise Elo.

Basic advises

After you set a goal, you need to focus not only on the game but also on your behavior. Behavior is the most important thing in all kinds of activities. Never start a game, if you upset, have a bad mood, or some problems in real life. If you feel unusual, but still want to play, then play in any other game mode, like a normal draft, ARAM, dominion and else.

Never start games when you tired. Every man has their limits, after what you start to play significantly worse. Try to notice when you starting to think out of the game. If you see that you starting lose focus on LoL, then try to change activity. Just know when to stop. Many players just lose a freaking lot of games, only because they do not know when to stop. If you lose 1-3 games, then just take a break. Most of the players just fall in rage and start to spam games, dramatically increasing their losing streak. And in the worst scenario, you may start to troll in games.

Remember that if you decided to play League of Legends then you need to be chill. Take a break if you feel tired and you will reach new heights.

Why jungler

Jungler is the most independent role, where everything depends only on you. Playing as a Jungler you free to choose where to gank, when to gank, when to aim a Dragon. I prefer a tank-initiators type of junglers, so I choose where and when all team fights will start. And the right initiation of the team fight is the half of success.

To carry low elo games, you need to play on strong champions. Always follow the Meta, learn new champions. Your task – to find which champions are strong at this moment and to master them. Strong champion is not always popular, strong champion – is that kind of champion that can carry games almost by himself. Take Shivanna as an example. Many think that she is weak because she is not popular, but with the right items she is able to deal freaking lots of AoE damage and can fight almost 1 vs 3.

With the new patch, your favorites may meet some nerfs, so you need to quickly learn a new champion. This is an infinitive process, and you need to adapt to it.

Understand your team

Adapt to your team. Watch how they play, and how they act. In most cases, you can locate an idiot just in the lobby. Never focus on bad players in a game, do not even try to help them during the game. Idiot with a 4-0 stats can still lose a lane.

Focus on good players because you need allies in a match. Help him, gank his lane and you together you will be able to win a match. Even if he does strange things, it will be better to risk and assist him.

Many peoples, especially from Bronze, just loves to whine at the team. “I have a great CS and¬†KDA, that means that I am a King and you all are Losers!” This is incorrect. You need to understand that if you want to break through low Elo you need to carry games, carry the whole team. If someone was killed by¬†gank, then be sure that he buy and place a ward. If he did not¬†bought¬†it, then buy it by yourself, go to him, and place it.

Remember that you do not need /all chat. So go and disable it right now. Enemies, allies, all players of League of Legends use this chat to whine, flame and troll. If you here to start a conversation with some new peoples, then try something else. League of Legends is a competitive moba game, not some personal chat service. When someone starts to whine, flame then just add him to the ignore list.

Jungler champions | SoloQ

lol jungler

Personally, I divide all jungler by 2 groups Рfarmers and gankers.

Farmers – those junglers which full potential opens only in middle and late game. They do not that good at ganking, but they able to quickly farm jungle minions. Shyvanna is a great example, that can so effectively farm jungle that she can have the same level as the other solo laners. Other great farmers are Dr. Mundo, Amumu, Nasus, and others.

Gankers – junglers that really strong in early stages of the game. These champions are quite bad at farming, but they can deal great damage already by the 3rd level.

But this does not mean that playing on farmer you need to focus only on farm. You need to open the potential of a champion on all 100%.

Conclusion

This is the end of the First part of my guide, the second will be released probably in the next week. Summing up all that I wrote above, I want to say that it is easy to leave Elohell solo, all you need to do is to put some efforts in it, and you will quickly see how your rating is growing up. But if you feel that all this is pointless, then you can always use elo boosting services.
