That’s the thing, you can play a lot of games but you need the good competitive ones to rank up or you need to absolutely slay beyond expectations - here are games where I did go up compared to the games where I didn’t that I posted before:
Notice how these are all before I get Diamond early in the Season, I still slay, come above everyone and even high ranking diamonds.
This is what it takes to gain percentage:
And then, I get Diamond very quickly because I’m absolutely slaying and beating expectations.
Not only am I beating the other team.
I’m also outplaying and out-killing my own teammates who are also Diamond or similar rank.
The game then sees me as the one winning the games and performing far better than everyone else.
And hey presto, Diamond:
And see how I still play good even when competing against other diamonds and top level players?
This is how you go from Diamond 1 to Diamond 3/4/5.
