Sorry but I just had to post this - so happy. I've been stuck at rank 1-3 of gold for the last 2 weeks and finally I got promoted after two TvP's which I won rather convincingly just now. They also put me at plat rank 7 which I think is pretty nifty! Do I feel like I've improved? Yeah probably a bit, I took a year long break from being Diamond rank 5 and now I think I'm back and starting to understand the timings and metagame again after several patches.
I play few games on 1v1, i started from bronze and the last season i got promoted to platinum, it feels good but i just got pissed of the skill wall between gold and platinum. I can stay on that so i am waiting for a new season to reset my MMR.
