As much as it would be nice to go pro, I do not want to play just to be a pro. Granted, it would be awesome, but I am obviously way below pro level. Just from reading the replies I can tell I need work on my cs. I want to play ranked to really see my level of play, and I would love to be able to see I'm a good LoL player, which at the moment I am not. So basically, I can always hope to go pro, but I really want to become a good LoL player and that is why I play ranked.
CSing is not the problem here. Not trying to be mean but I rather not help you. With a year and half experience myself, playing league in general is fun but a huge ass waste of time. The amount of time you have to put in rank is not worth it unless you're trying to go pro. If you really want to play rank, just play enough to satisfy your needs. Playing rank is not fun, you have to make it be fun. So in the end who cares if you're bronze, just play the damn game for fun.
