Top players have smurfs with higher rating than Elementz's main account.

I'll probably be more willing to try new, untested but theoretically viable things in normal, but I still play to win.

Its how I've learned more about builds.

I actually agree with Elementz. Normal games are more about testing new strategies, new building, or new characters instead of being completely tryhard about winning.

The question is, how much do you really learn about the viability of, say, wit's end Xin Zhao when the enemy team is composed of smite revive evelynn and AP gangplank? You can't get better at the game or even determine good builds in games where people just screw around. If you need to learn the moves on a new champion, you can do that just as easily in a custom game.

People always 'screw around' in normal games. People who take champions who contribute very little to team or help form balanced composition are clearly just playing to have fun, rather than to win. In ranked it's -very- encouraged that you take the absolute best possible champion at every single pick, and not just instalock tryndamere as last pick when your team needed a tank and shen was open.


Yeah, I hear in ranked you always get the perfect team comp and nobody ever has stupid builds.
