Hot takes from a player who has been in all ranks from high silver to high masters
Currently hit my all time peak at M2 and figured I'd make a nice shit post to commemorate with some meaningless hot takes.
Low masters and gold are the most fun ranks to play at and are also the least toxic. Gold players are generally just having fun and happy to not be lower ranked. Low masters players know they are good, but not great and don't have an ego yet (mostly).
High masters and high plat are by far the worst ranks in terms of toxicity. The plats are just pissed they are hardstuck for the last 15 seasons and high masters players lose one team fight and just sit in spawn because they have weak mentals.
Not dying/feeding as a support can carry you to around Diamond even without making any crazy plays. Just having more uptime is insanely valuable, and in the current meta a support kill is basically a free teamfight win.
Every support is good this season even Moira in the right situation, such as into zen mercy (fade and orb coal into the backline and beaming the mercy is a goated strat) or if you simply cannot stay alive on your current pick.
Getting your teammates into voice is the biggest advantage you can give yourself even at the risk of toxicity. Calling out kill targets + ping or even loose ult tracking out loud is INSANE value. I can't tell you how many times I call out rein has shatter and then half my team just manually dodges that shit behind a wall like absolute chads.
Dps is the most boring role.
Tanks mains are absolute chads, especially rein players.
Support mains have the biggest brains and arguably the highest carry potential in S3.
Mei is S tier right now but you should commit sudoku if you play her.
If you can't get value with blade without nano you don't deserve the nano.
