One thing I have noticed while playing ranked matches in League of Legends is that the aggression levels of other players has increased.  I don't mean on a personality level (which it probably has too), but in the way that they play the game.

I played two games yesterday, both wins, and faced off against the same guy.  This was several hours apart, so I wasn't sure if it was him or not.  Anyway, the first match he jungles and ganks top around level 2.   So I did my duty and warned top before the second match.  Sadly, it was not enough.

He ganked bottom, me specifically.  That's another thing I noticed, players really go after the support character.  Usually, they try for the AD carry and let me dump all my abilities to save him.  In ranked, they seem to come right for me, which is something I will have to get used to.

The best games I have played so far are when our jungler actively wards.  I ward plenty, but I don't travel the map nearly as much as the jungler in the early phases of the game, never-mind going into the enemies jungle.  It is a huge boost when you can get good ward coverage early in the game.
