Boosting your own ELO

As a general concern about sharing the account with someone and not being sure about the efficiency and reliability of these services we encourage you to try your best to boost your own ELO by doing this list of very important things and follow them religiously when playing.

1. Familiarize yourself with the map. This might come as a no-brainer but you can’t imagine the amount of people that aren’t aware of what is located where in the map of League of Legends and most importantly in “Summoner’s Rift”. Not knowing where the objectives for the bonuses are has to be one of the most dreadful things you can do in League of Legends and if you find someone that can’t find the proper things then you should definitely not be playing with that person.

2. Familiarize yourself with the items, again this might come as a no-brainer but the amount of people that don’t know what each item does is remarkable, they just follow a guide blindly and don’t even take the time to understand what they are buying, why something works and something doesn’t. Maybe the general environment of your specific game calls for a different strategy and you might have to purchase different items each time and not follow a specific build or generalized strategy in order to win. So please learn what each item does and why they use it.

3. Read lots of guides, one of the most underrated way to get better at the game in the start is to simply read and digest lots of content. Not only will this help you become familiar with popular terms and concepts – it helps you to make decisions based on other’s experience. Going into a game with the mindset that you are simply going to improve isn’t how you make big jumps in ranking. You need to have a strategy on what you are going to improve and how you are going to do it. Reading a guide will help you learn your champion. This tip alone will get you out of Bronze if you’re in that range of ELO as a beginner player.

4. Practice what you learned, not only by playing the game over and over in normals – but be prepared to lose some games in ranked. You need to pick champions that are going to help you learn specific aspects of the game. If you are struggling with map awareness play a champion such as Shen or Twisted Fate that do really well with good map awareness. You will notice that as you become better at these champions your overall awareness has improved. Likewise, if you’re struggling with farming – pick a champion that has slow animation and low attack damage, such as Anivia, and learn to farm. Once you can farm on Vladimir without using any abilities and hitting 80 – 90cs by 10 minutes, you know you will already be out of Bronze and Silver.

5. Learn from the best! Watch streams and while watching them don’t just do it for the entertainment, do it with one thing in mind and one thing alone, and that is to pay attention to what the best players are doing, and most importantly, why they are doing it; most of them will give some sort of a commentary as they are doing it but some don’t, so don’t pay attention to that and just focus on what you have already learned and why you see them doing such things and once you do that, think to yourself why would that work, why did this player did certain thing and why it makes sense to do it. This will skyrocket your learning curves and throw you over the top as an excellent player.

6. Get coaching from experts, in any sport ever, the best athletes are the ones who have the guidance of a coach that works with them day in and day out to make sure that their techniques and abilities are where they should be and with a realistic improvement mindset.
