Hi everyone and welcome to Thursday's Top 10! This week we're covering ways for a mechanically superior players to quickly gain LP. Oftentimes, players realize that they're definitely more skilled than other players in their division, but for one reason or another can't seem to impact the game hard enough despite their strong displays of skill.

Introduction

Hi everyone and welcome to Thursday's Top 10! This week we're covering ways for a mechanically superior players to quickly gain LP. Oftentimes, players realize that they're definitely more skilled than other players in their division, but for one reason or another can't seem to impact the game hard enough despite their strong displays of skill.

Check out the listing below for ways you can make sure your raw League mastery pushes you to ever higher divisions:

1. Focus on CSing

The one single, most obvious thing that separates a lower division player from a higher division player almost always comes down to CS. Every ~15 cs equals a kill, so to the extent that you can make sure you hit all your CS and force your opponent to miss CS, this is often the easiest way you can dominate a lane and create strong advantages for your team.

2. Utilize Flash Offensively

Generally, mechanically superior players should have faster reflexes than their opponents (being mechanically gifted). This means that to the extent that you can release all your burst damage quickly enough to take down a target before they escape, you should almost always do so. However, be certain that you've correctly calculated the damage and aren't just wasting flash.

3. Freeze Lanes Early

Early on, many players tend to hap-hazardously auto attack creeps, pushing their lane and making it difficult to safely CS. As a result, they eventually start zoning themselves in fear of the enemy jungler. Take advantage of this and just chill on the CS for a bit. Freeze your lane at turret and watch the enemy laners squirm from perceived threat.

4. Beware Junglers

Along a similar line as the above, always beware the jungler's positioning and how likely it is for the enemy jungler to score a kill off you. No matter how good your mechanics happen to be, it's always better not to 1v2 before you're particularly fed. 

5. Level 1 Cheese Plays (Including Early Jungle)

Against players you think you can easily beat, but are afraid your teammates will hold you back, feel free to do an early level "cheese" play, especially top lane. Most people aren't used to early trades and likely won't be entire sure if they'll win or not. Because of this, you can often pick up free damage and/or force them to chug an early potion.

6. Ward and Push HARD

Later in the game, when you've successfully established your dominance over your lane opponent, if your allies are losing lane as they inevitably will, the best way to counteract this failure is by pushing your lane HARD while keeping wards up to prevent avoidable deaths. This draws more pressure top lane and prevents your allies from needing to fight particularly unfavorable battles.

7. Pick Offensive Based Champions

If you're truly gifted, selecting offensive based champions tends to give you the highest chance of outplaying enemy champions in 1v1 situations. Champions with death-denying abilities are also extremely good (such as built in shields or lifesteal). These somewhat unexpected utility moves allow for more outplays and are often not built into enemy calculations when they try and trade.

8. Pick Someone You're Good With

Despite me saying that you should pick offensive based champions, you should definitely still pick who you're comfortable with, as this insures the greatest chance of victory. Even if you know you're mechanically superior, there's only so much you can do against some well timed hard-CC in a poor situation.

9. Stall Teamfighting

Unless you're particularly fed, try not to purposely group too early. The reason for this is that if you know you can outplay everyone on the enemy team, fighting in small skirmishes gives you the greatest chance to prove your mechanical prowess. Meanwhile, in large teamfights there's always the chance to get hit by a stray Morgana binding and end up extremely dead.

10. Participate In Teamfights

Even though you should stall completely committing to team-fighting, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't go to the aid of your allies when fights do break out, or roam to pick up kills in advantages numbers.
