In general, that is. For some odd reason, people (even ones who you've encountered here) are terrible and aren't aware of this simple fact. I'm bad, you're bad, probably everyone viewing this forum is bad, but we (Non pro-gamers) seem to think we have all the answers. I think Riot's awarding people for good behavior (the honor system) is a great call to help this, but I also find it somewhat depressing that the MOBA community is so bad that it needs this kind of system (and this is coming from a long time CS player...)
^ The truth has been spoken...albeit abrasively.
People here (heck, people in general) do tend to have over-inflated self-perceptions... But that only means that we have room to improve. And, fortunately, LoL is one of those games that offers such great depth and complexity that there is always
room to improve, even for the pros. We just have to realize
that we have the room to grow and not become complacent and wrapped in overconfidence.
That is why I like that the OP reached out to the community as he did. Despite his post's superficial egoism and the fact that he didn't say it explicitly, the main motivation of his coming here looking for higher level players is very likely that he realized he won't get much better by playing the "noobs" whom he currently encounters in most of his games.
At least that's what I would like his motivation to be. Part of the reason I invited him to find me was to see for myself. haha And even if it's not, I can shake any ego out of him while helping him get better by pitting him against lvl 30s. I didn't play with anyone under 1400 elo until I was lvl 30 myself, so I know all the feeding does a new player good!
