I read a blog recently about someone stuck in Bronze league SC2 and I can feel his frustration. I don't know how the average skill levels comapre but at my best back in SC2 I think I was borderline Silver/Gold (though this was like Season 1, so doubt that still applies). But to be fair I didn't play very much and I know there was lots of room for me to improve. In this case I'm probably about the LoL equivalent of Silver (or maybe Bronze) but I can't improve any more than I have been. I know how the game SHOULD be played, I watch streams, I analyze my own play and I know where my mistakes are made, but I just can't improve upon them for whatever reason.
I see terrible players in my games all the time and I can always pick out their mistakes and what they should have done easily but maybe only 50-60% of my own mistakes. I guess I am just as terrible and it's so disheartening to know that.
I think at this point I really need to play with a few people who are better than me and have them talk down to me/analyze my play midgame like I do with those friends who are bad at the game. I assume the comparison is exactly the same; I just know where they make their mistakes, just as someone much better than me will be able to point out the ones I don't see. I want to improve SO BADLY but just reading/watching isn't enough anymore to make it out of my personal Bronze League.
