How to Climb in Ranked
Hi, My name is Rare and I'm a plat ranked player who mainly plays Olaf, Kayn, and Karthus. I made this section in my Olaf guide specifically to help players climb. Many of you probably think that you deserve to be a higher rank but the teams you get are holding you back. The other half of you probably think that you deserve the current rank you are in but want to climb higher but don't know what you are doing wrong or how to climb. There are 2 methods I can think of that you can use to your advantage to climb rapidy. First one is simply watching youtube videos and looking at guides for the champion you play. This is obvious and I'm guessing you guys already know this which is why you are viewing mobafire guides in the first place. Now for the second tip I have a phrase I like to use called "pick your cards". I believe that over 50% of your games are decided in champ select. There are 5 players on one team, assuming you are not a troll or sub 45% wr you are classified as a normal player. That means that you have 4 more players in your team and i'd say there is a decent chance that one of them is either a obvious troll, sub 40% wr, someone first timing a champ/playing a champ they have horrid winrates with, someone with a 5 game or higher loss streak, or a jg/sup autofill (playing with 2+ autofills in your team as jg is miserable, if they main jg or support they definitely can’t lane so you already have an auto lost lane). However enemy team has a higher possibility of getting one of these players since they have 5 chances while you get 4 (again assuming you aren't the troll yourself). You can avoid all of those players in the lobby by simply dodging. But you pretty much only get 1 dodge, you lose -10 lp if you dodge a second time so you can't dodge after 1st time (losing 10 lp to avoid bad teamates is not worth it). So you might be asking; How can you avoid bad teamates if you can only dodge a lobby once? The answer is simple, lock in Olaf and then replace smite with cleanse. Someone in the lobby will probably say something like "Olaf smite", or "Olaf bro u don't have smite". Don't type a single word in chat and then at the last possible second switch back to smite. They will have dodged already because the don't want to play without a jg obviously. Sometimes people really don't want to lose -3 so they will dodge last second. that's why u switch last second. 95% of games this works, 5% they won't dodge which is the reason why u switch back to smite last second so u can still play normally in case that happens. This tactic is kinda scummy and people won't agree with it for obvious reasons but I guarantee you will climb by eliminating the bad players in your team most games. Unless you are the bad player that I'm telling you to dodge you will eventually climb with this method. If u are the type of player I'm telling you to dodge then I recommend watching more YouTube videos of league to become more knowledgeable about the game and also watch pro league games to see how they play. You will eventually become a better player that way too and increase your wr and skill level. If you are one of those players that I classified as dodge worthy I recommend that you continue reading because the next section should drastically improve your gameplay and eliminate most of the issues you make which made you dodge worthy in the first place.

some other reasons I see people losing in low elo and their inability to climb are itemization failures, runes failures, poor understanding of how game works and awful macro decisions, randomly first timing champions (ur gonna do bad and it's basically coinflip whether you get a team that can carry you hard enough even if ur running it), people not playing their one tricks, inconsistency, and 0 vision score/no control wards bought. If you are one of those players that I told you to dodge or below the rank of gold, I can guarantee you that u are making at least one of these mistakes. Itemization and rune failures are easy to fix, all you have to do is copy the build/runes of this guide or go to something like and search runes/itemization for your champ. In low elo you will randomly see people build crazy ****, I've legit seen an ekko mid on my team build duskblade and lethality items when I was boosting a friends bronze account and it made me want to cry. Please don't do this, be a normal human and copy what pros are building for your champ. Don't first time champions in ranked, do at least 2 norms games before and don't play it in ranked unless you carried those norms games. You will 100% run it down if you first time champs in ranked and will put your teammates at an unfair disadvantage. Realistically ur not beating a one trick that is the same rank as you if ur first timing a champ. If you are a one trick and your champ is banned, just hold lobby hostage you know damn well ur gonna int on other champs. The major thing tho that I see is poor understanding of game and decision making failures, macro failures. Macro skills and understanding of the game go up each rank. Improving this simply requires more and more games, the more games u play the better your understanding of the game is.
one last thing I would like to note is BUY CONTROL WARDS. I constantly see players below silver with literally 0 vision score and they don't buy control wards either. for example you see enemy jg gank top. You go to enemy jungle to steal his camps, you should be putting a control ward in one of the bushes for his jg. Enemy jungle comes back to his bot side jg and sees that his camps are missing, he goes to gank bot and your team will see him because of that ward and back off. You just saved your team from getting double killed bot with one ward! trust me, vision saves games.

Final Note: Dodge tryndamere. Review the synergies list I put in the matchup section, the ones on the bottom end you usually dodge. I always dodge Tryndamere and Maokai support, sometimes irelia and katarina if they have inted any of the previous games in their match history. Dodge Alistar too if they are a one trick, usually garbage and plays in a disgusting way.

For those wondering how I look up the of all my teammates without manually checking each player (which takes forever btw) there is a very easy way. When you join a lobby, look at the chat. It should show that all the players join in the chat, you copy and paste it onto text bar and it will show you the player layout for all 5 teammates.

the lobby join messages that ur supposed to copy in the game should look something like this:

airplane water joined the lobby
kumavoid joined the lobby
djtheballer joined the lobby
Just Fluffy joined the lobby
Alpakah59 joined the lobby

you just copy that and paste it into searchbar

If you have any additional questions or are looking for me to do an Olaf review for you my discord is Rare#2573 and I'd be happy to help you for free.

I can also do a Kayn review if you play him as well.
