    1 with a peal role and one 1v1er is a good combo.

    the best climbing strat is to play at lowest population hours and dodge any duo that is on (adding them to ur flist or block list is a good way to know), dont forget to sync q with a friend using third party coms for very easy +rating regardless if they are on ur team or not. additionally u should be playing any combination of mirage/holo/herald/tactics war/spell breaker/fire weaver/symbolbrand.

    Queue as ranger / necro and then switch to double holo.

  • this sounds dangerously close to match manipulation

  • For classes I don't know how it is now, but last season Symbolbrand + Holo was really popular. Holo is general is just a must-pick for Duo climbing, you could even take 2 and still be really effective.

    When it comes to strategy: Queue in the off-times when there's little competition as humanly possible is playing, double queue as a class you know you can easily beat and swap off it at the last second, and find the best Duo partner possible because the higher you go; the less chance you have of ever being mirrored by another DuoQ, let alone one of similar average rating.

    If you're really desperate to climb the ladder, another pro strat is to find someone you trust who's mechanically good and has good game sense and have them swap to a low-rated alt account and just queue with them. DuoQs use an average of the two ratings, so if you queue as a high-plat player with a low-silver or even bronze smurf you will likely be matched against gold to low-plat players. You will get very low numbers for winning like +3 to a max of +7 for winning, but the games will be very easy. This is not so good for climbing, but this is perfect when you have a leaderboard spot that you want to keep as it helps you keep up with the game requirement and there's little risk of losing any rating.

    It's not match manipulation. It's a feature.

    Ranked DuoQ 😡👉🚪
    Patch-culture is awful
    Nerfs should be reserved for extreme cases and only done in creative ways that make the game more interesting to play and watch.

    Queue as two necros. Class swap. One plays farpoint and one plays homepoint. Be mobile and tanky.

    I que as two necros to dark the people silly enough to switch from two necro. Even better if they switch to ele or holo
