doing burst damage to get better ratings

Burst Damage to Boost your LoL Rank

It’s no secret that the reality of a good LoL score is closely related to killing blows and your killing streaks, regardless of how well you play your role such as jungler doing every single objective for the benefit of the team.

This however, secures something very important which is kills, and with kills comes better situations for your team and therefore quicker wins because you setback your enemies a great deal whenever you score those kills in every ELO range you’re in.

The most important skill that you have to learn aside from the guides and general strategies is this one, it’s called “Burst Damage”. Almost every champion will have a set of skills or a combination of abilities in order to do the most damage they can in a very short amount of time, we call this burst. The reason why this is so good and it will increase your ELO is simply because if you perfect this it will make you an overall better player.

Timing Your Spells Accordingly

Just think about the following, you can use all of your spells to try to kill an enemy but if you time them wrong then the enemy is still alive and safe while you ended up blowing your cooldowns for no reason; while instead you could time them right and use all of your power the right way and score that kill, that will boost your ranking in-game and also increase your experience by a lot, this equals to faster leveling to faster builds, more gold, etc.

It should come as a no-brainer as to why this will boost your ELO, however let me further explain to you why this is important.

In the higher levels of game-play let’s say Diamond ELO or Challenger you will find that the players are perfecting every single little thing, they will spend time training just small things in order to perform at their absolute best and the player who does this the most will be the one who remains victorious with an incredibly high ELO and quite possibly in the pro-ranks where… they do the exact same thing, work in the little things.

More Successful Kills Equals Higher ELO

Landing killing blows and 100-0 a player is definitely one of the skills you need to master with the champions that can do it, it’s one of the most important skills you can possess given the nature of the game in which you get better the more you kill your enemy, giving you and your team a significant advantage over your opponent team.

If you train this set of skills and this set of abilities with the best champions for each situation (remember to follow the builds and guides) you will find yourself winning a lot more and being able to boost your ELO rating tremendously by becoming a far better player.

Remember that the way to get your division as high as possible is by working in the little things and mastering them, once you add them up the results will be incredible.

Why Not Choose Sustained Damage Instead?

Carry roles vary a lot and some people choose to use sustained damage. Popular streamers such as imaqtpie, or even pro players like Bang use sustain damage to carry themselves – so why shouldn’t you? Whilst it is possible to climb the ladder using sustained damage, the marksman role is the primary form of sustained damage. This immediately puts you at a disadvantage in carrying as you become dependent on your support to provide vision and utility, whilst also not feeding. As well as that it takes a lot longer for most marksman to come online and start doing great damage. Champions such as Vayne and Twitch are amazing carries, but their relatively weak laning phase can make carrying hard if a burst mage is poppin’ off in the midlane.

With that in mind, champions such as Fizz, Ahri, LeBlanc, Zed and Talon provide huge amounts of damage. Their high amounts of mobility also mean that you can win your lane before snowballing other lanes and the jungle role. It’s not that sustained damage is bad, but burst damage picks up momentum sooner and provides an extra utility to your team composition. If their team picks lots of tank champions, then you may find yourself wishing to play champions like Ryze or Cassiopeia who have lower cooldowns.

So it is our recommendation that you choose burst damage over continuous damage. It gives your team access to a great tool for shutting down carries and unlocks your lane sooner. It’s important to use assassin mobility to roam and shut down key players. You should use your jungler presence on the map to invade, steal buffs and camps to further choke out the game. All of these characteristics of the role help you to erupt and take over the game. However, you’ll need to mute all chat, unless you want to hear about how broken your champion is.
