MM experience (LEM+)
Netherlands AntiGrease 
Ever since I ranked up to LEM 2 days ago, MM has been really weird. In MG ranks carrying was eZaF, and teammates were not really useless as they could hit most of their shots. Most of em still had the gamesense of a chimpanzee for some reason. LE has been ez as well, went on an 8 winstreak immediately after ranking up from DMG in just 2 days to rank up to LEM. Since I have relatively low amount of hours in CS (488 hours), people rage reported me just because i was better than them with half, 0.2x, 0.1x the hours as them. Due to that my trust factor has gotten low. So here’s the problem. Idk if this is just an LEM or soloq problem which didnt happen to me yet, but my teammates seem more retarded in LEM/SMFC than in MG ranks. They think they are some pro players and don’t listen to what you’re asking them to do in order to win. 90% of them are toxic as well. I came across globals every once in a while and I can definitely see why they are better than supremes/LEMs. I started noticing that I’m not really far above the LEM skill level so I can’t carry my teammates as much, but is Valve expecting me to literally hardcarry these noobs in order to rank up? I need teammates. I can’t win every single 1v4 or 1v3 which I was able to win against MGs 90% of the time. I’m still a consistent player in LEM, dropping 25+ frags every game and having an impactful role in the team, but this shit is too much, I demand competent teammates and better opponents tl;dr How am I supposed to rank up when my teammates are literally dogshit and I end up in 1v3’s or 1v4’s all the time? (read post for context)

80% LEM or smfc u see are not real, they got boosted by good teammates , when they solo queue, they start to play like mg2, coz no good teammate to entry frag, so that these guys can shoot from behind, or no good awper to watch mid, and they really suck, when they meet real LEM
2018-08-15 10:18
That's pretty much what's going on right now. Occassionally I will have a good LEM teammate, but I just hate playing with LEMs so much, cuz I'm not really improving when I play against them. Of all the games where I played against Globals/Supremes with Globals/Supremes it was really fun, but at LEM it just feels like I need to make a play in order to win the round, cuz these guys and doing shit.

stop baiting find friends to play with
2018-08-15 10:19
I don’t bait actually, I feel like I’m a good trader, but that’s only for one kill, my teammates so far have these bad habits of not communicating at all and just rushing on both sides, nothing I can do about that And as for my friends, I have 2 global friends but they stopped playing CS about 6 months ago, and all of my other friends are either MGs or silvers, hence the soloq

Play faceit
2018-08-15 10:27
I tried faceit, but I cba right now to rank up to my level, these level 3s/4s were waaaay to easy for my own improvement i think its better to just continue with MM because I will start playing with globals soon, and im not really familiar with the ranking system in faceit compared to MM ranks

Fair enough
2018-08-15 10:33
faceit is dogshit on 1-5 lvls, so if you dont have high lvl on faceit its better to play lem+ mm
2018-08-16 13:39
Yeah that’s exactly what im saying Cba to rank up in faceit, might as well continue with MM

Keep playing. Eventually your individual level will be good enough to do the same thing you were doing as MF and LE. When you are able to carry your team that also makes your team mates look better, they will have the Eco rounds to boost their kills, eventually will have a boost of confidence, and it snowballs from there. When you are loosing, the exact opposite happens, people rage, tilt, miss easy shots.. Tl:Dr Keep playing, you might even derank and feel like you are smurfing, but eventually you will stabilize at LEM, and soon after, rank up. Edit: Take it from someone who solo queues 90% of the time...
2018-08-15 10:46
I don't think that I'll derank since I still win more than half of my games, but yeah i guess it just comes down to patience
2018-08-15 11:27
You say that your teammates are dogshit, so your opponents arent better. Stop complaining, you want to Play with globals and smfc so YOU have to be on that lv, not your lem teammates. If you consistent drop 25 every match you dont really lose a lot of rankpoints. Matter of time to go further.
2018-08-15 10:41
Well I mean, I know that I’ll rank up eventually but I still feel like my teammates are letting me down most of the times As I said, I can’t win every single clutch I get into, and if my teammates are decent and relatively smart I can just focus on holding angles instead of worrying about my back 24/7 iykwim

+1 absolutely, i've also noticed the fact that DmG is way harder then LEM, they 're good and consistent,while the LEM rank is completely crap, since all of'em are trying hard, and the level of toxicity is so high, esp when u play with the UK kids. When ur Global it's a way different, there are some really high skilled player, but most of the time u will find a cheater.
2018-08-15 10:43
Of all the globals I played with so far, they were definitely by far the most skilled in everything, supremes werent even close against LEM than globals I still dont know why everyone is complaining about UK players. They are polite and play to your liking if you have the right attitude towards them, never had a problem with them so faR. I had playing with turks though
2018-08-15 16:36
MG/MGE I find they're the best and worst players in the whole system. LE is easier.
2018-08-15 10:43
LE was definitely easy for me, even though it felt like I had more competition than MG ranks Then again, DMG was also easier than MGE for some reason so yeah, its kind of weird
2018-08-15 16:33
in SMFC you either get great teamm8s who communicate and give info all the time with decent skill aswell or some dogshit boosted gold novas who are toxic af
2018-08-15 10:46
From my experience SMFCs are generally the most toxic kids on CS, Globals actually put their words into action, SMFCs only have big talks but sucks when it comes down to whose the best, and then there's LEMs who just want to play and rank up

I disagree with about 90% of what youve said.. could be because of the trust factor or something but ppl are generally pretty nice in supreme/global, even in the cases that I become toxic people dont get angry back which I really didnt expect
2018-08-15 17:57
Globals are pretty nice people It’s just that supremes are meh when I play with them, but then again, this can be because of my trust factor

You need to play with people that you know. Thats the main key to get global :) Playing solo will only bring you cheaters and toxic players. Im at LEM too and it is the same for me
2018-08-15 11:12
I might need to add good teammates in my MM games then since my friends either dont have the rank or dont play =/

2018-08-19 03:08
Statistically you will eventually rank up if youre really 25+ fragging every match. With 488 hours it seems like you didn't play very much games in LEM. Play more, keep grinding and the rank ups will follow.
2018-08-15 11:13
I played like 12 so far, lost 3
2018-08-15 11:24
Just keep going thats the only advise i can give other than find good team mates.

If you played 12 and lost 3 you have nothing to complain about
2018-08-15 16:42
Yeah true But I wrote this post just to say whats I think about my LEM teammates so far and to see if I’m the only one having this overcome me or if there are any others as well

2018-08-15 16:41
I don’t think that I’m a sick player, but compared to the average LEM I have played with and against, I’d say that I performed the best out of all I don’t know if you’ve ever played with current LEMs but most cant even shoot properly, I’m not kidding. Also don’t understand how that makes me toxic lol I just want to play with supremes/globals, because thats the only way currently to improve quickly

To me it seems like youre the guy who thinks he is better than his team and screams at them when they play bad and then you get really toxic and afk or grief or something, and youre the guy who thinks he belongs in global after 500 hours
2018-08-15 17:36
Well, you’re wrong I don’t scream at them, I don’t grief, I don’t afk when I get bad teammates, I’m not toxic at all It’s just that I currently don’t enjoy my teammates in LEM, only time I had fun so far was with globals and supremes, cuz they actually play properly, and understand the game, some of my teammates who were LEM- had no idea of what they were doing

To be honest you dont have a clue what youre doing either if you played 500 hours, thats not enough to understand the game unless youre a sheldon cooper
2018-08-16 14:02
Look, because i have just 500 hours in CS doesn’t necessarily mean that I don’t have a clue of what I’m doing You know that there are a lot of content creators out there on youtube/twitch/whatever to ‘teach’ CS right? That’s where I learned most of my CS logic/knowledge, not really by playing the game

Norway JorgyZ 
But you cant get a proper understanding of the game if you dont play it enough, the best way to learn is by doing, anyway im sure you have decent gamesense and aim if youre LEM and winning most matches so im not gonna argue anymore
2018-08-16 14:20
It’s definitely possible, even though learning by doing might be more effective Timings and off angles are mostly what I learned from doing, but I was just trying to tell you that my amount of hours do not count in the hours which I’ve spent to get an understanding / new perspectives of the game

2018-08-15 16:46
Whats the matter with LEM?
2018-08-15 16:47
I read your thing and instantly saw one problem: "...and don’t listen to what you’re asking them to do in order to win. 90% of them are toxic as well...." Do not try to tell LEM+ players your ideas on how you think they should play, that is annoying as fuck. LET THEM PLAY! DON'T TRY TO "TEACH" THEM! I've seen your kind of ppl and was annoyed.
2018-08-15 16:46
I get your point, and I let people play their own game, but when I notice that my teammates consistently make mistakes which makes us lose rounds I’ll tell em to stop doing that, that’s all But yeah, might be one of the reasons why they are toxic towards me, idk

You cant really change factors like your team being stupid or bad, or the enemy team just being better If you play solo all the time the only option for you is to grind and get to a level where you can win every 1v3

I soloqued to Global Elite so I guess you just have to git gud :>
2018-08-15 17:23
=\ Its not like I wont make it, but atleast having competent teammates against good opposition would help me improve a lot
2018-08-15 17:26
Lowered Trust Factor + Boosted kids accounts
2018-08-15 17:39
I was stuck in mg ranks for a long time because i solo qued, my teammates didnt communicate, their gamesense wasnt good enough, basically my experience with mg's is the same as your experience with lem/smfc
2018-08-15 17:52
It sucks man, I hate it

Been playing a little bit of MM lately and I've honestly started to believe that a lot of people are buying their accounts on ebay or something similar. Not sure if this is actually a thing and I don't understand why anyone would buy an account, but yet I'm really suspecting it these days.
2018-08-16 13:35
It’s the internet, ofcourse accounts are sold on a lot of sites, but I’m not sure in what amount exactly, would really like to know that actually

2018-08-16 13:48
What’s the matter with LEM?
2018-08-16 13:49
For me, the nationality of the player is what matters at the higher ranks of mm. If you will get russian, most of the times expect to play without info and russians sitting out when the rush or fast play happens. Tbh, you should just get 1 or 2 decent teammates to play with and you should be fine. Year ago i somehow managed to carry myself to global getting 30+ kills every game. Idk about now
2018-08-16 13:53
Occassionally, a russian will be nice and listen to your suggestion, but yeah most just dont talk or are in teamspeak/discord with their friends Apart from that, haven’t had a problem with scandinavians/western europeans so far, chill guys
2018-08-16 14:13
Scandinavians are mostly polite Polaks are 50/50 Turks are fkin cancer jesus christ xd
2018-08-16 14:16
+1 Most turks literally change into 10 year olds when they play CS
2018-08-16 14:20
True apart from Polaks, 8/10 times they are toxic as fuck especially if they are patriotic

''They think they are some pro players and don’t listen to what you’re asking them to do in order to win'' As much as i want to agree with you as you mentioned they're not pro players and you're not leading a pro team here, it's matchmaking barely anyone takes it seriously anymore.
2018-08-16 14:21
What are you talking about? Most people in high ranks are sweating to get the w, and will start to shit on you even if you get few frags less when they will start loosing
2018-08-16 14:28
Some dont care, its obvious when they dont But there definitely are people who still care to win the game
