League of Legends, as you know, is the leader of the MOBA genre in the game industry. It has millions of players with its competitive gameplay and diverse champion pool. As the number of players is so high, it increases the competition and also causes the level of toxicity to increase.
This is exactly why many League players are looking for ways to rank up fast. In today’s article, we decided to prepare a guide where we will share 5 tips for beginners to rank faster.
If you are ready now, let’s get started and take a quick look at the details of our article.
- Learn Meta and Champion Pool Details
The key to being good at League of Legends is to have enough knowledge about champions. No matter which lane you are playing in, you should know the champions that you may encounter well. Because as you know, there are more than 150 champions in League of Legends. And all of them can have various performances with different skills.
Try to learn the mechanics of all champions in order not to have difficulties about the champion you encounter during the match. At least even if you only know the 10 or 15 champions in your main lane, it will suffice.
In addition, meta updates are made periodically in League of Legends. According to these updates, some champions get nerfs while some heroes get buffs. In other words, the champion you play may be weak next week, while the next week it may become very strong. The most important thing you need to do for this is to follow the LoL patch notes that come every few weeks.
- Find a Duo of Your Own Rank in League of Legends
As you know, League of Legends assigns you to any rank after playing a certain number of matches. After you are assigned to your rank, you start to enter matches with people suitable for your skill group. This is where understanding its ranking system is very important. Because if your elo is low, you will have to play with the same type of players in every match you enter.
However, if you are friends with a tryhard player like you and manage to communicate well, you can achieve victory. Remember that LoL is a team game and no matter how strong you get on your own, you may not be able to change the course of the match.
It will be possible to make plans as a team and to dominate the entire map with your communication skills. As much as possible, if you are aware of what kind of audience your own rank level belongs to. It will be so easy for you to climb the ranks.
- Follow Professional Streamers and Esports Matches
You’ve seen the streams of dozens of professional gamers on Twitch and Youtube. If you are a newcomer to the game, you can quickly learn some little tricks about LoL from these streamers. The more League videos you watch, the easier it will be to grasp map details, champion skills, and strategic moves.
Likewise, watching LoL Esports matches is an instructive activity. You can get an idea about meta champions by watching pro teams and players. And of course, you also learn how champions are used by pro players.
In addition to all this, LoL matches can increase your interest in Esports while improving your gaming knowledge. You might even consider using your experience for Esports betting. Because Esports betting is not as complicated as traditional sports betting. As a footnote, we would like to remind you that you can bet on upcoming LoL matches for the 2022 World Championship.

- Master All the Details of the Map
League of Legends map consists of 3 different lanes and a jungle. It is very important that our readers, who are considering playing the role of Jungle, get detailed information about jungle. You need to know the points where you can raid the opposing team’s lanes. Otherwise, you may not be able to help your teammates when they need you.
Even if such a situation occurs, your team’s falling back turns into a situation that you would not want at all. And of course, one of the most important mechanics of LoL is the Dragon and Baron wars. If you can’t do Dragon and Baron raids in harmony with your team, you will allow the opposing team to get stronger. If you learn the map in detail, you will know where and when you need to be.
- Try to Practice Every Day
Practicing in MOBA games is not as stable as FPS games. In other words, you can practice aim even offline in the FPS game. However, in order to improve yourself in MOBA games, you need to practice a lot online.
Therefore, be careful to enter ranked matches regularly. If you try to play regular unranked matches, you will not encounter serious players in your team. If you come across tryhard players of your own rank and like you, you will have the opportunity to improve your game.
Focus on In-Game Pings
As your LoL rank rises, experienced players like you will start coming to you and your team. It is very important to use ping or focus on the pings while in the game. Because this way, you can anticipate danger while your teammate warns you. In the same way, if you send a warning by pinging your teammates when there is no enemy in your lane, you will prevent their unnecessary deaths.
Do not forget to avoid making unnecessary noises while pinging. Pinging too much can annoy and distract your teammates.
Whether it’s League of Legends or any other competitive game, it doesn’t matter. No matter what, you have to play games in front of the computer for long hours. Only then can you reach the ranks you want after spending hours and working incredibly hard.
However, while doing all these, you should not forget that you should review your health problems. Staying in front of the computer for long hours can cause problems such as Lower Crossed Syndrome. We published a blog post where many Esports players are having such problems, maybe you’d like to take a look before you go. Stay healthy.
