Hello community,

If you clicked on this thread it means that you are interested in becoming a professional League player, be on top teams and compete in major gaming events such as MLG, IPL, etc. (and get chicks).

If this is what you seek, then you came to the right place my friend, for i will teach you how to do it in 13 easy steps. Follow them and you will become a pro in no time:


STEP 1:
Get a high end computer.

Although League of Legends does not require a very high end computer, it's nice to have it for tow reasons: 1. It will greatly increase your in game performance; 2. Chicks dig high end computers.

STEP 2:
Get a really good internet.

Honestly... If you have a ****ty internet and you play on 150~ ping, you will instantly see a difference in your performance when you get a new and better internet. Now instead of 150 ping, you will have 20~ - 90~ depending on where you live.
You will see that your cs will increase dramatically, and you won't randomly disconnect from the game.

STEP 3:
Acquire ELO (2k+).

This is a very important part of your journey of becoming a pro. If your ELO is 1300, you probably won't get picked in a top team. On the other hand, if you have 2100 ELO, you are much closer of becoming a pro player.

STEP 4:
Start streaming.

Almost every pro player streams. It's a great way to make money, become popular,and build reputation. Step 3 has to be done before starting step 4. Honestly, who will take you seriously when you have 1200 ELO. Also try interacting with the viewers (buy webcam and mic).

STEP 5:
Start building a fan base, get viewers and advertise about your stream (WARNING: this might take some time).

Create a facebook page, a youtube account, a twitter account, advertise your stream on reddit and on the league forums. This will get you more viewers, and thus make you more popular.

STEP 6:
Attend major events.

By doing this, you have the chance to talk to your viewers, top players, and even rioters. In this step you have to show the world that you are a very dedicated league player and deserve attention.

STEP 7:
Build a connection with important people (rioters, pros).

This is where your social skills and you ability to interact with people come to play. You have to say say things that appeal to the person you're talking to. Give them compliments, point out the good things they did during their career (carried his team, dominated his lane, etc.). Buy him coffee or something when hes on break and so on. Don't forget to talk about you stream and your dedication to Esports.

STEP 8:
Get acknowledged by riot and pros.

This happens when people like you, and see the potential of a professional league player in you. The thing you want to aim for when getting acknowledged by a pro is to hear him say "this guy is a scary (Insert champion here)" or "this guy carries games as (insert champion here)" or just "this guy is awesome" on stream. (TIP: watch their stream and queue at the same time to be in their team).
The thing you want to do when trying yo get acknowledged by riot is create guides, post them on the forums, create threads about an interesting subject, and when you see a riot post, you just hit the jackpot. If you continue and it's been a while you started streaming, you will eventually get featured. That is what you want to aim for. (TIP: save at least 5 to 10k RP in your bank you when a rioter watches your stream, you will look like a total badass).

STEP 9:
Try out for a position on a major team or a sub.

When a top team start hosting tryouts, don't let the opportunity pass by. If you are worthy enough, you will make it in the team. (P.S. If you got picked as the main player on the team (not sub), then skip to step 13).

STEP 10:
Temporarily get rid of the person playing the position you tried out for.

This step will measure the size of your balls. If they are not big enough you can just wait for him to get sick (which might take a while). If not, read below.
WARNING: DO NOT KILL THE GUY. I REPEAT, DO NOT KILL THE GUY. YOU WILL BE THE PRIME SUSPECT IN THE MURDER INVESTIGATION. YOU'RE NO GOOD TO YOUR TEAM WHEN YOU'RE IN JAIL. (Also, it's not cool).
Instead, just poison his meal to temporarily make him sick during a major event and take his place.

STEP 11:
Play well and carry your team.

This part is the deciding factor in you career. You have to both play well, AND carry your team to be on par with the rest of the top players. (P.S. If you fail this step, redo steps 10 and 11 until you succeed. But do not do it repeatedly, as it will become very suspicious).

STEP 12:
Proceed to get picked by a top team in the need of a new player or become the main player on your team.

Pretty self-explanatory.

STEP 13:
Get chicks.

Watch as every girl present in the event run after you.

CONGRATULATIONS!! You are now a professional LoL player.

This was a pretty sound guide, but I feel as if step 10 is probably a little too mild. I say just kill the guy, what's the worst that happens.
