In the beginning, we were created. How or when we got here is not of importance. What matters is taking the first step of the journey.
I finished my placement matches the day after the season reset and ended up with a 5-5 win-loss ratio. I went from being Platinum III at the end of last season to Platinum V. Don't delay your placement matches! I know you want to know where you end up. Get those placement matches done!
I see a lot of people worried about their placements matches. "What if I end up in Bronze V!?" Then you end up in Bronze V. Don't be discouraged by your standing in the ladder. Challenge yourself to advance! You've played ranked before, you know how exhilarating it can be to advance to the next division. "Oh, I'll just wait until the bad players and trolls are done with the placement matches." There will always be trolls and bad players. Devote yourself to the match despite feeling an impending loss on the horizon. You will grow as a player as long as you keep and open mind and focus on improving. Perhaps the person who's doing bad isn't a bad player, and are simply having a bad game. It happens, we've all been there. Don't be judgmental on someone you're only playing one game with. Remember that time you fed? Of course you do.
This is my first blog entry and I hope there's many more to come. I'll will update this blog whenever I feel I've gathered enough insight playing League of Legends and can bestow my ideas and philosophies upon everyone. Feel free to leave any feed back. I'm open to criticism!
