Hi there,

I have been playing LOL for about a year now just mostly normal games and bot games with friends.

What different expectations are there for competitive play and is there a nooby guide for it?

Yes stupid question, but I rather ask here than give someone a hit on their ranking in the game.

Your basic guide generally is to be comfortable with 2 champions in each role. Type more the better.being able to adapt to different team comps with more champions will reflect in your elo.

Other than that it's pretty much the same as normal games. You wanna do whatever it takes to win the game. Figuring out his you are gonna win games is the key to moving up

As always if you need more practice. Draft normals are great for practicing
