So I've done 8 provisional games, and to my knowledge 7 of them are wins somehow. I'm always afraid everytime I clicked the ranked button, and often times I click the stop search button halfway to finding a game.

I don't know WHY I'm afraid sometimes. Every other game has been with people always a little lower than me, it seems, and I always do decently...

So I guess it's just the stories of 9 million diamond smurfs in the provisional, or maybe the AWFUL teammates (that comes later I think) that make me not want to try. Not sure why I posted this here, it's not like one of you can just magic away my worry.

The trick to deal with these kinds of problems is worry as much as possible until you realize worrying isn't getting you anywhere, and then decide that losing probably isn't the end of the world.

Unless it is for you. In that case, this game will probably be your undoing.

And rectangles too; I won't judge.

You shouldn't worry. I feel like provisionals are best done as quickly as possible. You're only two games away from finishing and it sounds like you'll be just fine if you've gone 7-1 or similar. Pull off the band-aid.

Also the first provisionals matter more than the later ones.

Basically MOBAFire.

Not that I'm really one to talk but you've already won 7 games. Why do you figure you won't win the next 2?

It seems to me more than anything is the fear of where you will be ranked after that is holding you back. You have already won 7, so a good way to get over this is to review your previous matches then search the players that where in the game on lolking. It will give you an idea of where you will end up being placed regardless. Either way, the only way to overcome fears is to confront them head on. You can do it!

You have a huge chance you lose if you go into a game with ranked anxiety. It's a topic addressed by many LoL youtubers all the time and it makes you go on tilt automatically and start making mistakes that are so obvious and easy to correct that you just end up losing, and because you focus so much on your gameplay you miss out important factors such as win conditions that need to be met in order to sucessfully beat the enemy team and then you miss things out in your own gameplay. This then leads onto being toxic. For example....



SHACO An early game assassin jungler who wants to play aggressive and shut down lanes who are immobile and tend to do well late game. He's a potent splitpusher and a great ganker. He's not the strongest duelist but tends to be incredibly good at baiting, outplaying and invading. His huge burst damage and mobility allow him to snowball so he can take early game objectives so his teammates can scale into the mid game better. In order to win as Shaco you have to try and end the game as soon as you get an opportunity too. It's okay to take risks since he's a high risk high reward champion. If you don't make risky plays you're going to be a lot less useful than their jungler either way so you want to try and snowball as much as possible whilst denying everything for all of the enemy team.

Win condition: Early Game Objective Control + Pressure.

NAUTILUS A late game "hyper carry" tank who can tank almost everything and anything. He is loaded with a ton of CC. His kit allows him to lock down a single target for an incredibly long time whilst he allows his team to follow up with him and then take objectives. His teamfighting is very strong and he can generally set up ganks quite well but he tends to be quite weak early and takes time to scale. He scales incredibly well with items but if your items are delayed too long he'll become nothing but a squishy CC bot with limited damage. You want to make a few aggressive plays early on and gank about 4 times within the first 9 levels and then try and force teamfights when you're tanky enough and are confident enough to dive their backline because your backline is stronger.

Win condition: Late Game Teamfighting.

THESE WIN CONDITIONS CHANGE EVERY SINGLE GAME. If you can manage to meet them you will most likely will a majority of your games and gain ELO slowly. I found this quote somewhere but can't remember where it was from and it's very true.

- "It takes a good player to be able to carry their team, but it takes a better player to be able to know how to get carried." Referring to being able to do something within the game that is beneficial for your team even when you're behind.


Anyways, good luck! Don't worry if you lose a couple games, take it all as a learning experience. Not all games are winnable. Have a good mentality, leave the last game behind and start a-fresh. You'll get there.

The worst thing that can happen is you go 8/2 and you're placed in Bronze II; regardless you can climb.
