What are some other competitive games that reward players for their personal skill?

I was addicted to League of Legends but they removed solo-queue and Diamond rank can be acquired by every Bronzie who goes premade with 3 Challenger boosters.

It especially sucks where you are single man, and they're put in team with 4-man premade.

 

What are some other competitive games that reward players for their personal skill? By rank or by a number. With high skill-cap where you can really master things and make people go: "wow".

Edit: That can be played with friends, but still has option to translate skill onto leaderboard as solo-player in rankable matches.

Super Smash Bros. Melee, it takes a long time to master all the techniques and is super hard to get to be the best ever. You have to learn a LOT of techniques to actually compete on semi competitive level and have to be AMAZING to win any major tournament. It's also a 1v1 tournament (you have 2v2 tournament too though) game, so you can go solo and don't have to depend on teammates. 

 

But it's a whole lot different than LoL. It's a way different genre, but also the way you play is different. Competitive is also done at actual tournament and not at all online. You do have some online ladders and Dolphin emulation is getting way better (recently they made it so input lag is just as low as on consoles with some nifty tricks), but every major tournament is still done locally.

Yea, and can I play with friends in "non-ranked" matches, and can I run it on PC?

Even tho i hate to say it but...... Dota 2 ?

I'm neither hater nor lover or fanboy of LoL or DotA 2. But DotA 2 has this turn-mechanic that I just can't play with. I tried it and it didn't look MOBA to me, it looked damn hard, and I want something that's easy to pick-up and really hard to master.

It can run on PC in the Dolphin emulator (the emulator is legal, but getting the game is gray zone at best, so can't say anything about that) and you can play with multiple people locally on it I think. You can also do online play, which is usually referred to as "netplay" in the community.

Battlefield 4. 

Don't buy hardline. It is crap. That game is under developed....

And the upcoming battlefield 1. 

But we have to wait and see. 

If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.

These titles are constantly getting replaced. I'd like to play something that stays here for always and is just getting updates.

Trust me, Battlefield 4 is not gonna be replaced for a long time.

A lot of the players bought hardline, played it for a while, then go back to BF4.

That's how good it is.

And I think that there is not a single game in this world won't get replaced forever. 

I have been playing league on and off since season 3.

And I still miss season 3. Season 5 was horrible. 

Eventually it will die. Same as other games. 

If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.

Are there "cool" people in Battlefield 4 who have fun, or is it massive "everybody for themselves"? I'd like to go premade with friends, but I'd like to play as a team, instead of just running in separate directions.

If you wanna play with your friends, BF4 is the best game for you.

Go check out those youtube video, a lot of players play with their friends, classmates and etc.

You can approach a tank as an engineer, your friend can help you locate the tank from far as a sniper, then an assault can try to distract the tank by running around.

That IS teamwork.

Here is just an example... Go search bf4 funny moment on youtube.

And it is not a "go out and shoot all the enemy" type of game/.

If you keep doing that, you are gonna die, A LOT. 

It is a strategy game. And it is fun. I think origin is having a sale right now.

5 pounds or euro or sth, not sure.  

If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.

Any game with 1p ranking should work. Something like Rocket League, Quake Live, Starcraft 2, any fighting game. Games like Battlefield and CSGO appreciate players individual skill, but because of teamplay, they require more than just heavenly aim.

Rocket League. With tournaments like the RLCS with a prize pool for $50,000 as well as organizations like Pro Rivalry League, Mock-it League, and Pulsar Premier League (plus Gfinity and ESL tournaments) building up momentum, it's now easy for a professional RL player to win thousands of dollars per year. On the other, non-monetary reward side of things, its ranked system is incredibly detailed, with four tiers combining to make a total of fourteen different ranks (excluding "Unranked"). There are weekly "power rankings" that determine the best competitive RL teams in both the NA and EU by people extensively involved in the RL eSports community.

 

The scene is completely blowing up. It may be the new LoL soon enough.

Consider World of Warcraft - 3v3 Arena specifically. Any naysayers that suggest its an "EZ GAME" haven't tried to get past 2500 rating in Arena.

It has a massively high skill-cap and a reasonably low entry point, with tonnes of online resources to catch up with. There are loads and loads of things you can do that make other people go "Woah, that was awesome" - like using abilities to immune instant-cast spells at close range based on pure instinct or incredibly quick reactions, or interrupting a 0.5 second cast on someone who you aren't even targeting.

 

Also consider Starcraft 2 - Its the highest skill-cap game in the industry and rewards individuals and individuals alone. Its impossibly hard to master, it took me months of intense practice and stress to get to Gold and any failures (as it is not a team game) were my own fault entirely. Also, if you "git gd" at SC2, you're pretty much good at the hardest competitive ever conceived, other than StarCraft - Brood Wars, that alone brings bragging rights.
