Decided to smurf and do an Unranked to Diamond run playing only Vayne
You'll regret it. I wanted to do an unranked to challenger run playing only adc (my main acc is challenger). I instantly regretted buying Vayne and Graves only. Graves is alright but Vayne is a subpar adc at most, even in this tanky meta - I won like the first 20 and then I just got matches where I got quadra ganked bot all day. Not fun.
what's your opinion on the LAS server? I keep hearing it's worse than BR but I highly doubt so lol

I play on both. I don't play a lot on BR though because I only go there when LAS is lagging. I climbed from Plat 1 to D2 in like 4-5 days in Brazil though (last season when I transfered my smurf), so I don't think its "better" at all. Could get Challenger there as well. I think BRs take it more seriously though, or at least try to win more as a team and less... individually? In LAS it looks like everyone wants to solocarry.

The only difference is the "seriousness" of the Challenger players, LAS Challengers are really... well kind of jerks and not serious at all.
I keep hearing "oh you are Challenger on LAS that's like Platinum on EUW/NA/etc" and I honestly disagree. I watch a lot of streams so I know how the avarage Challenger NA/EUW/etc player plays. I could be there too, whenever I watch these streams I see SOOOO many mistakes from them... so yeah...
The only difference is the seriousness of the players - which translates into mentality and competitive success, which we lack.

By seriousness I mean things like... people will act like 12 y/o in LAS challenger. Lots of may-may's, blaming, trolling, etc.

So yeah while I agree there aren't many good players in LAS Challenger, I also think there aren't in ANY region, it's just that those regions with LCS players have some better players than the rest - they have people playing there who get paid to play.
Aside from the LCS players, I think it's 100% the same in terms of skill - they might just have more skilled players, but not better players - except for the LCS ones, which are obviously better than the rest since it's their whole life dedicated to it.
So yeah, that said, whenever I see any stream from NA or EUW I see loooots of mistakes. I'd love to play there and try though.

So tl;dr: We are a small region which means we have less good players, but not worse players. The only straight out better players from other regions compared to LAS are the LCS players.

edit: I have some clips from the times I played in a Challenger team in LAS (we were rank 1 but not the best team since the best ones were not playing ranked 5's haha). I'll probably upload some and also some from BR.

makes sense, so it was exactly like I imagined, thanks for confirming. the thing is that in BR servers, everybody knows each other at high elo and most of them end up in the competitive scenery (usually as tier 2-3) so they don't act like little kids too often. Below d5, though, everybody wants to solo carry and the troll amount is so ridiculously high that it's barely possible to play without duo'ing to make the chance of a troll in your team smaller.

Would be cool to play w/ you on BR server tho, would learn a lot from it :p

We can whenever you want, add me I'm Silleth there.
I'm just D5 because I only played like 30 rankeds this season, didn't climb or anything.

Do you ever wish to be in Challenger? Like, have you ever wanted to be in there at all or not? You played in that one team but did you actually want to be there?

Well back in S3 when LAS server was created I was like Silver in NA but I had only played the placements. Then I transferred my acc, and I started out at Gold. I thought "wow I'll be happy when I get to Plat"! Then I got there and nothing changed for me, I now wanted Diamond. Some months later I got to Diamond and same thing... So I climbed from Gold (technically unranked actually) to Diamond in 1 season. Then got to Challenger in Season 4 and at first I wanted to climb the Challenger ladder but after some weeks and getting like 400 LP I stopped enjoying playing there. I just dislike the people. So nowadays I just play once a week in my main acc so I don't get demoted, and instead I play with friends, smurf, etc.

Oh and about the team, I wanted to be in a good team for some time, so we created this team and scrimmed all the "competitive" folks that we could (BKLG, LK, FG, FGA, FoN, etc.). At first we were winning against pretty much anyone even though we were like 3 weeks old. Then for some reason we started sucking and I left.

That's what they call honeymoon syndrome I guess.

Random clip from some months ago of a ranked 5's vs. bKLG (means benched from KLG, KLG being the "best" team of the LAS/LAN atm). Kind of a sloppy play from me, I just KSed everyone, but my team focused them pretty well.
