Last year I stayed in the silver tier until October. I eventually ended up at diamond, but I felt like I would have enjoyed the game more if I made the jump sooner. My plan is to go diamond next Monday. I know several others on here are contemplating jumping up tiers, so I thought I would share my experience.
I am currently at Gold 6 and up 2-0 in my playoff series to move to platinum. Here is my current lineup and resources.
