Tips and Tricks To Climb for Season 10Posted by BLOG 27th October 2020 in
It’s that time of the year again, the end of Season 10. Everyone’s making the final push for that sweet sweet LP, possibly for that brand new border or the illustrious Victorious Lucian skin Riot is dropping. Anyways, with that said, here are some top tips and tricks in order to climb:
Tip 1: Find a Duo Partner
There’s nothing worse than braving the wilderness called Solo Queue by yourself. This is why it’s always a good idea to find a friend/ partner to make that final push. Not only does a Duo partner mean one less inting teammate, the more games you play the more synergy you create together. Imagine dominating bot lane together, ADC and support hand in hand. Or even setting up a tent mid lane, perfect for tilting the enemy carry.
Luckily for you, Summoner’s Society has got you covered with a Discord and Facebook page to help you find your perfect pair. Go forth and grab that freelo!
Tip 2: Learn when you’re tilting
Lose a couple games? Got camped and flamed? Lose a baron smite fight? You’re tilted. Hate to admit it, but you’re tilted. And just like when you’re hungry, when you’re tilted you can’t think straight. Smaller things will annoy you and you might spend more time typing in chat than throwing your abilities at the enemies. What should you do when you’re tilted you ask?
TAKE A BREAK.
Go for a walk, listen to some music. Maybe bake some cookies. Anything is better than working yourself up while tilted. It’s always better to come back to the game with a fresh mindset. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
Tip 3: One trick a champion
Playing a single champion over and over again helps with climbing a lot. Not only do you become familiar with the champion after multiple games but playing one or two champions helps you focus on things like Macro or learning your role in general. Playing/ one tricking simple champions helps you focus on these things much more. My recommendations are:
Top: Garen, Tryndamere/ Jax, Darius, Renekton
Jungle: Fiddlesticks, Rammus, Zac, J4
Mid: Annie, Twisted Fate, Morgana, Xerath
ADC: Miss Fortune, Ashe, Tristana, Sivir
Support: Soraka, Janna, Leona, Blitzcrank, Morgana, Sona
Tip 4: Don’t be toxic.
This one isn’t necessarily tied to grinding out solo queue for LP but is important nonetheless. In order to get to a higher rank one has to play a lot of games of League. Even if your jungler is 0/7 or your top laner decided that Yuumi top would be a good pick into Darius. There is never a reason for you to be toxic. Flaming your team or cursing at them doesn’t help them play better, or help you achieve the victory. We’re all here to have a good time playing League, it is a game after all, and it’s our responsibility as a community to minimise and treat toxicity appropriately when it arises. If someone is being toxic, mute them and report them after the game, don’t let their frustration or anger affect you.
Tip 5: If you don’t get the rank, don’t beat yourself up!
Even if you don’t manage to get that coveted Victorious skin, or you’ve decided to throw in the towel, don’t beat yourself up. It’s a game after all and it’s not the end of the world, League isn’t going anywhere and you’ve got plenty of time, there’s always next season.
With all that being said, hope all your games go well and are rewarding with many victories. I look forward to seeing you guys out on the rift!
