In this episode, sOAZ provides an in-depth explanation of the mentality required to climb in Solo-Queue and talks about what you need to think about in every game to successfully grind ELO. Setting up goals is crucial to a positive solo-queue experience and getting better at the game. Establish a few goals and focus on working on them one at a time. Choose 2-3 champions and try to get better at them before moving on to others. Make sure you are always re-evaluating your goals and don’t try to do too much at once. A fast way to improve at the game is to ask yourself questions and educate yourself. If you are going to look at what others are doing, don’t just copy them without thinking. Why are they doing this? Why should I do that?
