How To Get Most Out Of Placement Games?

As usual, we offer Placement Matches boosting to get you as high as possible for the next season, placement games boosting is the best bang for your buck as those 10 games determine the rating where you will end up in and shifts can be huge. We can do them for you piloted, or you can queue up with one of our pros and play them yourself with a little help.
