I pretty much stopped playing rankeds after i reached diamond 5 last month.
Now i play normals and try new champions and play with my friends with odd tactics etc..
Then i get comments like these (all of these happened today , not the exact words but anyways) :
If Enemy team is losing they go: "Hah did you see that mistake you just did there, how much did you pay for the account?"
If Enemy team is winning they go: "How can you lose to our team that is made of silvers/golds, boosted much?"
If i'm winning lane they go: "Haha you noob just playing OP point and click champion"
If Enemy's winning lane they go: "How the hell are you losing to me with that champ, it counters me and i'm only platinum"
Trying out new champion:
Our support says it's cool to try out new things in normal mode,
but after 5 minutes he starts raging so much that i have to mute him.
Jungler is telling me to ignore him and continue do my best.
10 minutes later he starts flaming 10x more than the support did.
All the games I played today were fun in the end, no hard feelings and no reports were made.
It just amused me, that some people seem to think that a player who is diamond is either:
A) Boosted / Bought account
B) Jack of All Trades, Master of Everything, masters every champion in every role in every game
