I want to touch up on something because I feel like a lot of players get stressed over this stuff.
It’s okay to drop out of a division
I recently got kicked out of Diamond I for the third time. I won’t lie, this was a hit to my self image. I’d worked really hard to achieve my goals and that was my anchor to the real world, a visible marker of progress
Sometimes change will benefit you, and sometimes it will not
You are constantly growing and trying out new things and the game is evolving and our Riot overlords play with the meta like gods. But the great thing about dropping a division is you can relax about every single ranked game, it’s no longer as high stakes when that division isn’t the highest you’ve ever achieved.
After playing around on easy mode for a bit, you’ll be ready to make it back into that division you were at before. You will be stronger, more experienced, better prepared. Always remember the immortal words of Kha’zix
Change, is good
Now’s as good a time as any to reblog this, I wrote this back when I was just barely stabilizing my mmr at D1. Time really flies, huh?
