Top 10 Ways to Lose LP Before Even Playing

Leave a Comment
Everyone wants to win in ranked, or used to at one point or another. Maybe they've regressed to trolling every game, but those people don't stay in your division for very long. Sometimes it might seem like the world is against you, and that makes it hard to see objectively at the big picture.

If you've been doing the things below, you might be sacrificing valuable LP without even playing the game. Read on to make sure you avoid them before they start!

Introduction

Everyone wants to win in ranked, or used to at one point or another. Maybe they've regressed to trolling every game, but those people don't stay in your division for very long. Sometimes it might seem like the world is against you, and that makes it hard to see objectively at the big picture.

If you've been doing the things below, you might be sacrificing valuable LP without even playing the game. Read on to make sure you avoid them before they start!

Ban A Teammate's Champion

If you had a guy on your team who played a god awful Twisted Fate last game and wants to pick it again this game, please don't ban Twisted Fate. Maybe he's an awful Twisted Fate, but that might be what he's most comfortable playing right now. If you thought his best champion was awful, wait until you see his worst...

Play Late Into the Night

Most of us don't play league for a living, and don't need to play the entire day to maximize our LP gains. Many of us are also humans, who tend to perform worse after prolonged lack of sleep (a known fact). As a result, if you're prone to playing just "one more game" or "can't end on a loss", it's probably better to just sleep on it, and start up fresh the next day.

Forget to Check Runes/Masteries/Summoners

There are few things that put people on tilt more than playing or having a Zed on your team with full AP and Windspeaker's Blessing. If you're someone who tends to multi-task during champion select, at least make sure your runes and masteries are correct. Also, if you're jungling, don't forget to get smite...you can't buy a jungle item without it.

Forget to Lock In

This one is happening less and less as people get used to dynamic queue, but it still occurs quite often. If you don't lock-in a pick or ban, you instantly dodge and lose LP (and time). 

Play After Drinking

Drinking might make you awesome at beer pong (or so you say), but it probably doesn't make you better at flashing Malphite's ult or avoiding a facecheck against Leblanc. If you enjoy kicking back a few beers and playing ranked, just don't expect easy victories.

Allocate Yourself Less Than An Hour

If you have less than an hour or even an hour and a half until you need to leave for your sister's wedding, don't queue up a game of ranked. It might be a twenty minute game, or it might be a 70 minute turtlefest with six barons, and then Jessica's not gonna be happy...

Rage the Game Before

Sometimes it feels good to rage, especially at someone that's particularly toxic in the hopes that once they're banned you'll never have to deal with them again. However, that unfortunately sometimes backfires when they end up on the same team as you in the very next queue. Weigh it very carefully, is it #worth?

Tilt Pick

After a particularly bad game, you might say something like "I always lose because of bad mids, I'm going mid this game". Or, you might say Riven is just plain broken, I'm just going to start playing her for free Elo. This is when you step back and say, "Am I actually good at that?" If you are then by all means go for it. But if you're just doing it to prevent someone from being bad in that position, remember that there are always two of each role in the game, one on your team and one on the enemy team.

Rage In Champ Select

Even if you get the same toxic trolls from last game in your new game, there are few things that can tilt new teammates harder than seeing their allies rage at each other about a previous game. It's a new game and a fresh start, Forgive and forget.

First Time Champ That's OP

Did the enemy team forgot to ban Ekko, Kindred, or Soraka? How hard could it possibly be, if nobody wants to play him I'll do it, how hard could it be? After 500 games as Singed I'm sure some of these mechanics probably translate over. Avoid the urge!
