Silver V is the best training ground ever!

I would like to believe that I am good a League of Legends, but everytime I watch my Friend that is in Diamond league I am constantly reminded that my level of play is not quite where it should be.

I hit a 15 game loss streak that lead to a raging 30 game loss streak, which effectivly took me from Silver I to Silver V.

In my greif I was looking for a blog with game advice, strangly enough I got some great advice from a World of Tanks fourm: This is the best post ever, on the psychology of a loosing streak

But then I quickly learned that:

   - I had nothing to loose
   - I could farm up my skills in semi-high level play
   - I could try new styles of play without the threat of loosing
   - I had a better training ground than normals

One thing you really have to do in League of Legends is blame yourself for everything, and be able to accept that it is true. (even if you think otherwise)

If you do not, then you will get stuck in the stages of loss and greiving, and as long as you are playing mind games with yourself your game will be effected and more prone to making irrational decisions.

I have learned to jungle, gank lanes from mid and top, better warding, and more effective styles of leadership.

While my MMR is not great and I am not exsactly were I want to be, I am learning a lot about the mechanics of the game. (What leads to succes, and what does not)

A lot of people hate the Fifth level of the ladder system, because bad players cannot move down. But it is probably one of the best places to train for ranked games in League of Legends. (or at least, for people without friends to play with)

Normal is great, but there is a lot of issues since no one looses anything. (not too many low skill players take normals seriously)

I play really old video games and enjoy them.

My parents bought an NES and MM6 and Metroid and that is how I got into gaming.

You could say I am a Nintendo fan boy, but I am starting to get off of that train as of recent.

Anyway hope you enjoy my blogs and feel free to leave a comment.
