The debate about gold being high elo in this thread (http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/forum/general/why-is-gold-considered-high-elo-24713?page=2) actually made me wonder - where do you guys think high elo stands?

EDIT: This is just your perception of where high elo is. Nothing to do with the high elo section part of guides.

Platinum V and fprward. Gold players lack so much, especially the bottom part of it.

I feel like, as a gold player, I know quite a lot about this games mechanics and everything. I simply cannot reproduce every technique I know, all the time yet. :/

I agree with the way Gold players get partly the same benefits of being "High Elo" as plat+ players do, but I've always considered high elo to be plat and above.

That's basically what in my opinion, sets golds and plats apart.

NA perspective: Diamond III and up. Platinum through low diamond are solid players, don't get me wrong, but it's SO ******* STALE. Occasionally you get this one guy that does an unconventional but strong thing, but most players in that range are not innovators, they're imitators. You don't see a whole lot of stuff that you don't already expect, and many visually stunning plays you see are actually the result of the enemy team ****ing up instead of the user executing something perfectly.

The game's more fun when you get outplayed through the enemy doing something completely unexpected, not just 40 minutes of "which team has more solid mechanics" :/

SATELLA IS BACK HURRAY
I voted for diamond V+ as I think that it takes some real determination and talent at this game to get there.
Platinum players tend to be of similar mechanical skill like diamonds however they lack in decision making and make more mistakes.
As rose said before, making a mistake in plat probably won't have as big of an effect on the game as making a mistake in diamond would.

EDIT: holy **** I must be tired, revamped the post cause Engrish op

Barely! School started (and I'm officially a grad student now), not sure if course workload will still let me play League :<
