There is a massive skill difference in diamond 3+ d4-5 is nothing like diamond 3+ so I'm going to have to say Diamond 3 is what I consider the start of high elo and diamond 1 is on another level, which I hope to reach D:

The question here could have been "What are the criterions you use in order to define high ELO"
The data we gathered here doesnt provide us any tangible basis for a reasoning(ex: changing the guides labels), because the answers are clearly biased by the user's understanding of the question. Dont take me wrong, everything in the world is biased by your understanding, but there are means to mitigate this effect. One of them is using clear definitions.

So, what are your criterions?
-Is it simple a mathematical question? Then, what are the numbers? ex: anything < 15% is high enough? Or maybe 5%?
-Or is it about competitive play? If so, when you say competitive, do you mean "could hold it against pro players", or do you mean "they would definitely stand a chance in local tournaments"?

Using gold to label "high ELO" should sound somewhat legit to most 87% of the player base, not counting non-ranked players. I think it is quite a good label then. Now, I did play quite a few gold games with my duo partner, we honnestly arent that great as players, yet we are disturbed by the basics knowledge a lot of players seem to lack. Admittedly, it is nothing close to high playstyle standards. The ELO is still damn high.


TL;DR Should "high ELO" refer to world wide competitive play? I think not. Breaks down to maths IMO.

Diamond 3 and above is what I consider high elo. I've personally experienced playing vs plats and I have to say even tho I'm a nooblord the skill difference between me and them wasn't significant. (I prob just got really bad players or it varies from server to server).

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

Yeah, but all the plats you play with and against would **** all over golds / silvers / bronzes. That's why I consider plat to be high Elo. They're the best... just not the best of the best.

My opinion...

Bronze - Cares only for self, self fails.
Silver - Cares only for team, team fails.
Gold - Cares only for game, game fails.
Platinum - Cares only for team, team wins.
Diamond - Cares only for self, self wins.
Challenger - Cares... wait, nevermind.
