Hey Summoners. I am new to LoL, I believe level 23. I love the game and have been trying to get a few matches in every day. I was wondering if it is worth it to do my placements for season 9 and try ranked. The reason I ask, and my concern, are smurfs and the fact that it is so late in the season. I have read on the boards smurfs are 30-35. I do not want to hit 30, do my placements, get destroyed, and start much lower than maybe I should be? Any advice would be great. GL to all!
