I did, and I'm currently in 1, it's not quite near my skill level but more like around 2.5k-2.7k, finding 3k+ elo teams is very difficult. I had high hopes and it looked very good at the start, going 4-0 in open, but we're 4-4 currently and that's disastrous considering 2/4 losses were against way worse teams, even choking from 13-5. Now I lost all the motivation that I had.
Trust me, getting recognized is very luck based. My friend who is only 14 (2 years younger than me) got mentioned as the rising star of my scene in an interview with a semipro from my country. He also got invited to my scene's pro league, all that whilst being twice as bad as me (not saying he is bad, he has a lot of potential, but I envy him because I've been way more consistent and way better, not sure how to put this in a way where I don't sound egoistic, because trust me, I'm very humble, but it's the factual truth). I never even got a "nice shot" from any1 who's already recognizable... considering I play my best when I play with/against them... that just shows it's all about luck.
It's depressing at this point and I just don't see why it would get any better.
