For the past 2 weeks I've been spamming League games to get back to Diamond. Before, I wanted to give up climbing and just end the season in Platinum (where I got placed) but I just ...couldn't. That's why I haven't been posting anything and I've been extremely slow with commissions. To those I owe art to, I'll make up for it, I promise!!
So, about the climb, I started in P4. I had terrible MMR because I had a trashy winrate at the start of the season and at some point I completely lost hope and started doing random things in ranked thinking "I don't want to get Diamond anyway".... Yeah, sure.
Well, Diamond isn't the top of the world but it's pretty and I can't imagine playing for 1 whole year with a stupid Platinum border, anything but that. And they call it a "reward"...
When I decided "Ok, I want my stupid Diamond border" I played 210 games in 14 days, which is 15 games per day!!
Which is like 12 hours. After struggling a lot the first week I decided to be a 1-trick Nami (which sucks but I wanted this to be over soon) and well, it worked out. I ended my climb on a 12 game win streak. From Plat2, 60lp to Diamond I didn't lose a single game. I aced my Dia promo 3-0. And no, I don't Duoq.
I don't know how I did this but I'm happy.
It feels so good to wake up and not feel any pressure to play the stupid game anymore. OuO Life's pretty good. I won't play much from now on, I don't want to quit the game because I love it but I doubt I'll play much from now, I actually don't want to. I'll probably play a few normals to try new champs when I need to take a break from art. If you wanna join me and play on EUNE, my user's Warpagi.
Next year I might do the same thing- take a break from everything and rush Diamond as fast as I can by 1-tricking some champ.
I'm pretty eager to make more League fanart
as soon as I'm done with the commissions. I'll probably try my own version of Nami's splash-art since I really dislike the way she looks. Her skins and skin splash-arts are no better except for the SKT Nami one which I don't have. >.>
Here's the satisfying pic~
