Basically spam games

solo queue rating system is worse than ever.

All of GD has been screaming for a week about how advancing is super hard now. What's your argument for it being easier? Like, i dont have feelings either way, but i want to know your logic.

I agree, haha and I think it's because you have a grace period in between and also the fact that you can't drop tiers. And it only takes 4-5 wins to hit promo series.

He has a point. If you can spam enough games and get carried. Not even carried, just NOT FEED. You eventually can get diamond, even if you play like your gold. This can take longer times for others, but if you get really lucky, it can be done. And once your diamond, your diamond for good! So get your buddy to get you up there, then just feed all day with the pros! Who cares! Your diamond 4 life.

Last time I heard you had to actually be diamond rating with MMR which is your elo to get to diamond/plat so it's just like before but now you have to win a series to prove it.

Nope. Just stomp the baddies in gold. Get carried to Gold 1. Luck out on 3/5 games on your 10th try. Free plat. Rinse and repeat for diamond.
