I almost wanna play my placements just to see where I'd get placed. I think I have the game understanding of at least a plat player since I watch lcs, nacl, and high elo streamers but I don't play consistently enough to have great mechancis.

And at the same time I don't play enough that I'd rather be unranked than to be a bronze player lol

Yeah I've never cared for ranks in any game. The only reason I played Ranked in Halo 2 / 3 was because those playlists had the gametypes I liked. I enjoy normals / social because it can still be competitive, but there is room to fuck around and not feel like you're messing with someone's rank who actually cares.

Okay, I'm gonna stop you there

first off, watching LCS =/= playing solo q, at any level of play. you cannot expect your team to follow your exact gameplan because one person can throw a lot of things off.

strategy can win you elo, but mechanics more so in solo q. you need a decent combination of both to get out of silver. Imo being bronze/silver just looks really bad (maybe as a diamond player; but if I see bronze/silver on lolnexus i just fuck around and still do okay....not so much with gold+). before you head into ranked you really should be dominating on a fairly consistent basis in normals.

the biggest problem about ranked is that teammates care more about the outcome of the game, so it's a more toxic environment when someone feeds. otherwise it's far more competitive (at least my level of play lol) and it's imo more fun that way. I still prefer playing with friends over solo queue, but grinding to diamond is also very satisfying.

Not sure if they changed this but if I remember correctly the best you can do out of placements is mid gold.
