Like i said i came first twice in my ladder in silver league, out of the 2 times i bought faceit. The first time it was a close 1st place, but i mostly played with 1 other person only. the second time i dominated the ladder by over 50 points, and you get 12 per win, lose 12 per loss (sometimes slightly more or less depending on enemy elo)
The higher you go in a league the harder it gets, the more dedicated people are. A lot of people in the ladder only play a few times and then never play again or just dont play till the end of the month.
In bronze league most people are like LEM at best, silver is good supremes-globals most of the time, gold league is global+ i'd say.
