Oh boy, where do I begin? It was about two months ago. After a series of losses on Solo Queue I was demoted from Platinum II to Platinum III. I had never been demoted, always on the rise. I took this demotion very hard to the point where I considered dropping League of Legends. Instead of taking it to the extreme, I decided to take a break. I had planned to take a one week break, but that break kept extending as other games were released. Finally, after about two months, I have returned.
I reread my first post. I have to admit, I somehow inspired myself to get on the ladder and start climbing again.
"You learn more from a loss than a win." - vVv Doomhammer
As always, there are things to learn from defeat. I noticed that there are some people out there on the solo queue ladder with malicious intent. It's just human nature, there's not much you can do about it. Anything from a misplaced ward, a missed skill shot, or even a failed gank can spark these individuals. Their ego ignites and explodes into a catastrophic event which derails an easy victory and turns it into an epic struggle that eventually leads to defeat. These individuals think that by purposely losing the game, they will teach you a lesson. You can't let people like this bring you down with their fallacies, stay strong and stay on that ladder. Take a break if you have to, but never give up!
