Skill rating in League of Legends games determines how hard you carry games and how great of a player you are, generally, the better you perform, the more likely you are to get an S score and therefore get more Blue Essence and Champion Mastery points!
In this guide, we will tell you all it takes to get S as often as possible.
Getting S rated means you did your best in the game and probably performed the best on your team as well, which translates into more honors from your teammates and faster champion mastery progress.
S is critical to getting all the cosmetic upgrades in League of Legends that all the players want, and it's no easy task!
Skill rating is affected by almost everything you do, let's look at some focus points.
KDA or Kills Deaths Assists ratio is a great deal when talking about skill rating. If you have a negative KDA, it's nearly impossible to get rated well.
Kill Participation- this means that you cannot just afk through your game with 0 deaths and 0 kills, as you would have 0 kill participation, and the game won't reward you for playing a tree!
Creep score only matters if you are playing a role that requires it- League of Legends looks at your CS compared to your teammates and opponents on your designed role.
Putting up wards and destroying them is essential to setting up objectives, ganks, and leading your team to victory, and that's why it matters! The higher, the better!
Participating in as many Dragons and Barons that your team kills and as many towers that your team destroys is essential to getting the best Objective Score that you can!
Surprisingly, chat and flaming don't affect skill rating at all. Even though you can flame your teammates or get reported all you want and still get an S, it is not advised!
Now that we went through all the reasons for getting a better skill rating and all the points that determine it let's get into the actual tips on getting our precious S! Rule of thumb is that the better you perform, the better your rating will be, so make sure to play without any distractions and only when you can focus on the game with a clear gameplan established.
You should attempt to avoid dying much at all costs. If you die more than five games per game, then it's terrible. Always try to die as little as possible and don't take risky plays or follow your teammates into suicide; that way, you won't give free resources to the enemy team, and you can spend the time farming and get stronger on your own instead of watching the gray screen.
Know the feeling of getting suffocated by the enemy jungler, support, or midlaner and being unable to lane the whole game until you just end up losing all your resources and objectives? Be the one who does that instead of playing the victim. Make plays, take kills, starve opponents, make their life hell!
Wards. Put upwards, destroy enemy wards, destroy blue flowers so that you can kill even more wards. Wards are the single most underrated objective in League of Legends, put up good vision, and the enemy jungler can never gank you. Destroy the enemy's vision with pinks and red trinkets, and the enemy jungler or midlaner will never touch your lane again.
Play fewer games that you put more focus in. Only play when you are in the ideal environment, aka no screaming babies, moms, or girlfriend around you. Play when you don't feel tired, when you are full of adrenaline and energy and have a positive mindset, don't play when you don't do well as it just cascades into more loses.
Win games and play well to get your beloved S rating. Perform as well as you can, and that's as much as you can do.
