how to climb out of gold to Diamond:
step-by-step video guide

Climbing out of Gold to Diamond is hard work. Most players don’t make it.

To go from the top 30% of players in your region to the top 1% requires you to start doing things differently.

If you’re not ready to change the way you play, improve and perform in League of Legends, you won’t climb out of Gold.

If you aren’t willing to do what the 1% of players do differently to the other 99%, you won’t climb out of gold.

If you want real, practical advice that you can follow step by step to climb to Gold, I’d suggest watching this video below.

There is no right answer here.

In the current meta, you can climb with every role in League of Legends.

The best strategy to go with when choosing which lane to climb with is to pick the lane you are most comfortable OR the lane you have the most success with. If you’re unsure about what role/champions you’re most successful on, go to and look at your statistics.

The most important tip to remember when trying to climb out of gold is to try to just stick to one role and master it. It’s much easier to become a god at one role rather than constantly switching roles and being indecisive when trying to climb.

There are three ways to approach choosing a champion pool when trying to climb in League of Legends.

  1. Play the champions you have fun on – this is best recommended for players who want to make sure they always enjoy the game. Usually, if a player enjoys a champion they will also perform better on them, will learn faster and climb quicker.
  2. Play the champions you are good at. Go to and look at your most played champions. Look at your wr%, games played and KDA. The champions with the best numbers across these three metrics are usually the champions you are best at playing. Generally, any champion above a 53% winrate over at least 30+ games is a good champion for you to focus on mastering and playing to climb.
  3. Play the meta/OP champions. This is the hardest option as it generally requires you learning a new champion which can be very difficult and actually detrimental to your climbing, particularly if you’re a new player or haven’t played the champion before. If you use this approach, make sure to practice the champion in flex-queue, on your alt. account or in normal games before bringing it into your solo-queue games on your main.

In my experience, having coached hundred of players in gold, the best strategy is to choose a small champion pool that focuses on a balance between the champion you’re good at and the champions yo enjoy playing.


There is always a synergy between high performance and champion enjoyment, so make sure you keep your champion pool small (3-5 champions) on your primary role, make sure you enjoy playing those champions, and make sure you can actually win games with them!

This is a question that almost no-one asks themselves yet one I ask to all my silver players.

Goal setting when aiming for a higher rank is critical because it makes you start to get specific and focus on areas of your gameplay that aren’t up to a gold elo standard. See the following goals as a general guide for a silver player wanting to become a gold player.

  1. Have a wr of 53%+ across your most played champions.
  2. Have a cs/min of at least 5 for junglers and a cs/min of 6 for top, mid and jungle. This should be across all your most played champions.
  3. Have a KDA of at least 3 across your most played champions
  4. Have a KP% of 50-55% as a jungler, 40-45% as a top laner, 48-52% as a mid laner and 55-60% as a support.

Now, just because you have these statistics, it won’t necessarily mean you will reach gold, HOWEVER, if you are achieving these statistics in silver, it proves that you are in fact playing better than the average silver player and therefore if you keep that level of performance, you will eventually climb out of gold, whether it’s in the next 10 games, 50 games or 100+ games depdning on your rank, MRR and consistency.
