Hi im spitnik11, I've been playing LoL since summer 2010 and recently this year I've been reading the Mobafire forums and I finally decided to make an account.

Back on topic, the matter of ranked play, First of all I've played a small number of them, mostly because I was too lazy to try and get good. But that was then and this is now and now after finally trying to get serious about LoL I was scared away by the most simple of things, Attitude. Now yes I agree that this is something that's in almost all games normal and ranked, but when it comes to ranked play it's like your possessed by the ghost of fear and all of a sudden the smallest mistake has cost you the game, for example once you see that First blood appear on your screen in your head you say (ah **** this just got real.) But then you see "this guy has slain this guy" which might make you say "guys we need to focus," but here comes your jungle who says "gg noobs" followed by either going afk in base or continue to flame for the rest of the match. Now since I favor top lane I find it important to respect my lane enemy and and wait to see what he does rather than be to aggressive, considering wave control and all that, but for some reason when it comes to my attitude in a ranked game once I see 3 or more deaths and then an argument in the chat even when I'm winning my lane I suddenly start to make silly mistakes and stress out about the other lanes and at this point you know we already lost. And the worst part is, if it was a normal game I know I would have simply tried harder and straightened up. And this is why ranked games scare me, its what it does to me mentally, anyone else have these same problems, and don't get me started on Ashe who says "Just wait till late game."

A lot of LoL players are authentic babies. This becomes even truer in ranked (specially low elo) where everybody is convinced they don't belong there but for some reason Vayne only has berserker greaves and two Phantom Dancer.

Just chill, you gotta keep a cool head. Always remember that if you aren't calm enough to carry, you'll need someone else to do it. You really wanna elo climb always depending on someone else to pull you up?

Oh no, I always try to be the postive one in a losing game, even if in my head I'm cursing the world, I just wish people would take more pride in how far they've gotten rather than have a negative attitude about every fault, But that really is just LoL for ya.

"There is no late-game in solo queue," great quote. I think, especially in low ELO, one side will get ahead, and will usually stay ahead. Establishing yourself as serious, composed LoL player is key in my opinion. After that, you have to expect the worst in your team, while hoping for the best. You're going to get flamed, trolled, and be shocked by the lack of communication of your teammates. Just let it roll off and continue to play your game.
did i help? +Rep is always appreciated!

What I've slowly begin to realize is that you have to have a mindset that basically says:

- Keep your cool, don't rage.
- Communicate (I know, this can be exceptionally hard at times :\)
- Don't worry if you give up first blood, just make sure you keep your head in the game
- Never give up
- Have fun! It's just a game, and elo won't get you a promotion or whatever...unless you're TSM. :P

Thanks to jhoijhoi and LaCorpse for the amazing sigs!
