I lol'd so hard at this going through all the replies. Funniest reply I've seen in the forum in a while.

To the discussion of this thread, I have to agree that you should never rage about your elo unless you're purposely being trolled. That's kinda what people are pushing the "loss forgiveness" mechanic to be added to the game. And for the people who absolutely care about their elo, they should stop going on solo que for ranked. Make a bonafied team and go at it with the other players. I guarantee that your competitive lives will be so much easier if you only go in with pre-mades.

I'll be able to do it, considering I didn't play in S1 I'm a bit behind. But I'm catching up fast and actually put in effort to learn from my mistakes unlike most of the playerbase ^.^

If they played over 1000 ranked games in S1 and are over 500 in S2 already, then well yeah I would agree with that.

@Everyone saying "dont rage."


You haven't lived until you've told someone that they deserve to die in a gas chamber because they cs'd poorly.
