Yeah, I haven't played ranked since season 1, when I had much less expirience.. So I'm just practicing to carry myself >_>, not sure when I'll get the motivation to actually try ranked again. It was pretty horrible starting in s1, I doubt much changed.

Am I the only one that thinks being scared of ranked is beyond stupid. Like, not enjoying it and that's why you don't do it is fine. But why scared o.0

Get in there mate!

There's a bit of a jump in tempo between normals and ranked, but you never know until you get in!

Yes, there are ragers and jerks, but for the most part- there's good people. (Of course, 1 in 10 is still every second game, but hey- what can ya do right! )

This. In my experience normals don't teach a lot and if anything can make you think you are better then you are. Be aware nearly half of all ranked players are bronze so dont feel to bad if that's where you end up

I'm pretty sure it's actually something like 65% in Bronze

EDIT; its the bottom 56% that are bronze

If you have 1000 normal wins, you should know how to play to a certain level. However, normals won't teach you how to get better at playing. You shouldn't be scared of playing ranked with that many wins. I started at 300 normal wins and went straight to Gold back in S2. As long as you can play better than your opponents, you will go up.

Edit: you shouldn't be scared of ranked, but if you find you dislike playing it, you can always stop. That's understandable to play ranked and not enjoy it.

If you have that many normal games, then you're probably skilled to some degree. Just try out your placement matches and do your best. Remember that in the end, it's just a game, so don't stress out too much about it.

90% of players are in Silver and Bronze.. only 10% make it past that.
