    How do you get into practice league? It placed me into Gold and im afraid Ill lose every match I play. I got into Gold 2nd day Season 5 Started but im Too afraid to actually play now since its Gold and not the Bronze im use to.
    It initially puts you into practice league without you doing anything, you click a button to skip it.

    It's too late for you to get in Practice League now, then. It's a one time choice when you first start.

    Before you do your placements for the first time, you get 50 games in the practice league.

    Maybe I should check the next page next time.

    Well, worst case scenario is you lose a few games and get moved back down, so league isn't that important.

    No it doesn't. Practice league is awful. If it was just a couple of unranked games, that would be cool, but they put rocks on the ramps to your mains and slow the game down. It completely fucks up how games are played and as a consequence it teaches you bad habits that have to be unlearned when you move onto real games.

    I am only being held back from Masters due to how easily I can go on a tilt, feels bad man.

    I don't know if anyone feels the same way but after just a few losses this happens to me.

    Oh man, I've played almost thirty games in the practices league and am shitting myself now. Although, everyone who plays Terran gets a star port up as quick as possible and storms the enemy base.

    I remember the few practice matches I played in the beta. They ended up exactly like that. I just made a massive fleet of banshees and vikings and then flew them around to the least defended side of the enemy base to kill stuff. I'm kinda proud that I realized pretty quickly that practice league wasn't the game set up how it was meant to be played, and went to the actual ladder.

    You could be in gold with a bronze mmr rating. It wouldn't be much different than actually playing in the bronze with a bronze mmr. I got placed in platinum but had a silver mmr, so I lost 16 games in a row until I was finally playing silver people.

    Looked at some old replays and realized that my apm has improved quite a bit. My average now is about 55, and it used to be like 35. Then again that might be spam, or unimportant clicks that doesn't really affect the game to much but it still feels good.

    Yeah if you don't spam, using APM as measurement of improvement is pretty good. I used have 60ish APM when I started out in Platinum. Now I have 95.
