Well, if you mean this season? I started at 1500~ dropped to mid 1400 by placementgames's end, then climbed from 1400~1700 in about 15~20 games. The hardest "points" to climb where when i was 1500~1600 and not playing the roles i play best at, aka playing top lane(hard to carry).
If you mean overall? Season 1 i dropped to about 600. Back then i was just playing for fun and the number didn't mean anything. I'de say geting to bronze season 1 was the hardest i've ever worked for anything. especially the 1100~1300 area. That was the hardest to climb by far. Geting past the 1600~1700 gap(season 2's 1600~1700) was more demanding, but once you get the skill neccesary, its becomes much easier.
So overall, 1100~1300 was the hardest hill to get over, partially because you need to be playing at atleast 1400 level play to get past 1200 without either playing 200 games, or geting lucky.
