    Hello friends!

    Alright, so I'm not a player of LoL, but my son is. He is always trying to tell me about it and discussing his achievements with me, but since it's not a game I play personally it doesn't mean quite the same. However, I've been trying to come chat with all of you, share tips/strategies, talk about the new stuff, etc. But he keeps telling me that there are way too many people who just aren't any good in LoL and he doesn't want to be disappointed.

    Now, I could go through and attempt to paraphrase all the other threads, but I am relatively certain I'd screw it all up. ;)

    So, I'm just going to ask the one question he asked me that seemed to matter most to him: How does everyone here rank?

    I think that the majority of our conversations (our = my son and I) when he talks LoL to me, is about his ranking and where he is vs where he wants to be and how he's going to accomplish it. So, how about all of you who play? Where do you fall in their rankings? :)

    I was able to achieve gold 4 before i stopped playing due to burning out. I find that the majority of players are somewhere in the silver tier.

    I able able to play almost anyone but i try to focus on roles that i can carry with. Personally i focus on Mid and Top as you can influence the flow of the game there.

    Interesting! As I said, I don't play. I tried once and it just wasn't my thing. However, every time I talk about the Razer|Insider LoL discussions with my son he asks what kinds of ranks the players are. Yeah, he's weird like that. hehehe
    So, I really appreciate the response! I'll have to ask him where he currently ranks as well. :)

    Yeah Silver 5 was the most popular tier last time I checked.

    Kajira, I'm a low Silver casual LoL players. And the fact that your son asks about the players ranks is not weird at all. In fact that's usually the most common question on any competitive gaming forum. Also, I think it's great that you and your son can bond over a video game.

    (now before you read this next part, I'm not trying to be a "Forum Parent" or "Critic" or anything like :)
    As far as league, the only thing I'd ask is for your son to keep an open mind when you two discuss the game and the discussions you've seen on here. I personally know a few higher tier players, people in the higher ranks such as Platinum, Diamond, and Challenger; and all of them keep an open mind when playing the game. I'm sure your son is higher rank than me, but just take it from someone who's delved into competitive gaming before.

    Good luck to him and all his goals. :)

    Yeah. he's a character in and of himself. LOL
    Between his ego from gaming and the ego he has from lifting/exercising and being USMC - he's just unique all around. *laughs*
    knowing all that, I think that in combination with his age, keeping an open mind might be asking a bit much. Though, I do try to keep him grounded and in touch with "the real world" and humanity. :)

    So, for anyone who was curious, I finally got the response from my son this evening. He said he was at Diamond 2. So, while I know how rankings work in general, I don't know exactly what the ranks are for LoL -- but I've no doubt that anyone who plays knows precisely where that is in the system. hehehe

    I am the most casual one who is in Wood Division 5 :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    I used to play ranked in my 1st account and got to gold 1 and then deleted that account because of addiction. Now I am using my NazgulStig account which used to be my smurf account at that time and I don't play ranked with that. But trust me division doesn't matter at all, there are players in bronze who are better than those golds. I can beat most of the plats and I have done that. These depends on how lucky you are in getting a good team, a reason why I main jungling because that is where usually things go wrong and a good jungler can fix broken lanes. I've heard people trying to insult others calling them bronze because they made a mistake or a bad play which may be due to lag. This is done by those brain damaged ones. In short, your skill matters not the division.

    I am currently in Plat 5 which is about top 10% of the players. This is actually quite interesting because back in season 2 I was Gold 5 and that used to be the top 10% of players. Just goes to show how the entire player base is essentially improving and also the sheer growth of the player base.

    That's really great to see a dad caring enough about his son's passions to investigate. I hope I will be like that with my own son (he's 2 now, so not on LoL yet fortunately).

    To answer your question I'm a casual player playing LoL since about 6 month and ranked Silver IV which is not that great, but enough to be angry when I see someone playing badly =)

    Just to give you some comparisons.

    21% Bronze
    45% Silver
    24% Gold
    7.5% Platinum
    2.3% Diamond
    0.01% Challenger

    I'm not entirely sure how accurate these numbers are btw xD But i'd say they seem right.

    (BTW last time I was active in ranked was more than a year ago, at that time I was Silver I)

    Seeing it in percentages is really nice, actually. I know he LOVES being competitive, in everything he does. (that's probably why he also joined the marines. lol) All the info here has been priceless, I appreciate it!!
