If you’re looking to climb in solo queue and generally improve your skill in League of Legends, we have some tips for you!

In League of Legends the majority of players tend to tilt quickly and throw leads they achieved just minutes ago. Even if you are not that player in your game, chances are the match will be turned around. Here are five tips to permanently improve your overall performance, no matter which role you play.

1. Play in Sets

Often times people play match after match, completely focusing on winning, also called “being in the zone”.

Now, that does have its advantages as you will likely not be distracted and perform as good as you can to win, the downside of playing multiple hours can be severe. That is exactly why I recommend playing in sets, meaning either a best of three or, if you have a lot of free time, a best of five. If you manage to win your set, that is great and you can keep going. If not, though, you should definitely consider taking a break from League of Legends for a short time.

2. Take breaks

As I already addressed many players like to invest lots of time into the game, eventually there has to be an improvement, right? Well, sadly, things are not always that easy, especially when it comes to fixing certain mechanics.

At some point, our brain will auto-pilot, meaning we are unable to play with peak concentration or reaction time. Therefore it is absolutely crucial to take breaks from time to time – and by that, I do not mean playing Jump King or watching Synapse. Go for a walk, listen to relaxing music. Whatever it is, isolate yourself from stress before heading into the next rounds.
