**All spots have been filled now so no more applications will be taken. Good luck!**

Hello, my name is Wolfram. I am currently a 1200-1300 ranked player and I'm looking to make a team of 5 to 6 players.

My goal with this team is to improve ourselves both as individual players and as a team. We will not only create a ranked team of 5, but use the opportunity to consistently practice and debate with one another about the game.

I am looking for players with a competitive mindset and a humble attitude.

I am looking for players who are quick to criticise but never insult.

I am looking for future Challenger-tier players.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is our team philosophy, and only if you agree with everything listed please sign up:

|There is no Elo Hell|

If you truly believe you have the skills, you will understand that the onus is on you to carry. Bad players are to be expected and are to be taken advantage of. Otherwise, you accept that you are at your current stage because you do not yet have all the necessary skills at the required level.

|Mistakes are prime tools for improvement|

After any and every game you think about what you did wrong or could have done right. You then develop a solution and try to apply this to subsequent games.

|You reap what you sow|

You understand that practice is crucial to this game. You know that keeping up to date with the current meta and game stats keep you afloat, and that you must play this game frequently. In particular, you understand that innovation is god. You must be able to readily critically analyse other people's opinions, regardless of status, as well as form your own.

|Emotions make or break|

Negativity breeds hostility, and vice versa, whereas positivity breeds tenacity, and eventually tenacity breeds victory. You understand that the power of emotions is not to be underestimated and that victimisation of fellow teammates will send you on the path to defeat. Instead, you offer hope and inject confidence to failing comrades because you know it's the rational thing to do.

|You have an ultimate goal|

You don't play this game because it merely fills up your time, nor do you do it just so you can play your other-half. You play this game because you want to be in the top 100 in EUW. You play this game because you want to best Wickd's Irelia. You play this game because however ridiculous your dream may sound, it motivates you.You understand that you are currently far from achieving your dream, but whatever it is, the sole objective of this team is to act as the first stepping-stone to facilitating that dream.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To be eligible for consideration you should:

-- Be over 18 years old;

-- Agree to the team philosophy;

-- Be on the EU West server;

-- Be available on most days at around 18:00-23:00 CET

-- Have at least 300 Normal wins;

-- Have an Elo rating of over 1200;

-- Be comfortable playing in at least two different roles;

-- Be able to converse fluently in English

-- Possess a ranked W/L ratio of at least 60% with 2 champions in your main role and at least 9 games played on both of them;

-- Possess a working microphone and be willing to use Teamspeak;

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In order to apply, please use the following format replacing the bold text with the relevant information:

Also please bear in mind that that right now the likelihood of being considered is based on your powers of persuasion. Please spend time on your application, and try to be as available as possible to play probation games upon acceptance of your application.

Summoner name: ass*****494 (ummm doesn't our posting name give it away? )

Current Elo rating: 1460

Roles in order of preference: Top Lane, Support, Jungler, (midlane) [DON'T MAKE ME ADC PLUX]

Best two champions (according to the above): Irelia and Maokai

Two of what you think your strongest strengths are:

1) I have a strategic mind due to my background in Chess and Go (and other games such as civ). A strong feature I have is playing for the team. For example my KDA with Irelia is rather low (2.1) compared with my win rate (76% from 51 games), and this is because I "suicide for the team". Which entails making the team focus me, or bringing the entire team after me whilst we take objectives.

2) I enjoy the game. As a result I don't flame teammates, and even when losing (up to a certain point) I don't surrender as there is a lot to be learnt from playing losing battles

Three of what you think your weaknesses are and are looking to improve:

1) "Blind". Example: I place a ward and don't see the jungler coming (not often, but still too often)

2) I don't have a lot of team experience. I have played in one team before (aside from goofing around teams)

3) Quick reactions. When I go even in lane it's usually because my long term strategy and decision making is better, but my reaction and mechanics (aside from c/sing) are worse.

What your ultimate goal is: Playing in a team that seeks to play as a team, free from raging however still man enough to take constructive criticism (I'm my own worst critic ^^)

Other things you should know about me: I mainly play strategy games such as Age of Empires, Civilization and Rome Total War. And I'm starting to lift. If that helps :P.

I have read and understood the Team Philosophy, accept it, and agree to uphold it within and without the team. I accept that I may be removed from the team if I am found to violate any part of the Team Philosophy or if I fail to keep to a consistent but fair standard of play.
