: aren't key fragments drop chances supposed to reset each month ?
its been 4 days i play in a row, and no key fragment. someone told me that if you get reported, you get "punished" and no key fragments drop. i don't know if it's true, but probably.. i'm not a toxic player, but sometimes i get reported from players that rage and flame everyone, and as i main support, this means sometimes i get a toxic add that can report me for not playing the way he likes, or the champion he wants, not to mention we all have bad games sometimes, and loosing a lane or not making kills (because you're support duhh!) is enough to get new players that don't even understand roles to report you. i question myself how fair thiss is
: > Do you think that having placement matches makes sense? Because i see it just like a loss of time if that's the mentality I think it makes sense as a way to allow for uneven drops. Even drops would encourage people to play during the preseason, the least balanced time of the year, which would feel like a bigger waste of time and more unfair than the 10 placement games currently do.

Thank you for answering again. From my point of view, or at least in my situation, i saw no point in my placements, because i have the feeling riot already had a plan for me, no matter what the result of my provisionals would be. Similar seems to have happened in other leagues as most platinums ended in silver and most golds in bronze, but if you were bronze, why do placements if you're gonna be bronze 5 guaranteed? I still think there should be a difference between 7W/3L, and 10 straight AFK games. I also don't understand how i ended in silver V after my provisionals last season, only with 2 wins, and at the time i was really really bad. I also don't think provisionals make sense to people that never played ranked before. It's fair that they should climb all the ladder in my opinion. I'd still want to understand how the system works this season (or from now on).
: Lol, I just read it and I'm impressed in that it's worse than I thought. You're actually just a bronze player that's sad they got placed in bronze 5 from bronze 1. If there was a tier lower than bronze I can guarantee you'd have been placed in the 1st tier of that so if I were you I'd just be happy that it doesn't exist. Couple other things. Score means barely a thing in placements and the only impressive one would be S- at least. You say that ranked placements were a mess "this season." How long have you been playing exactly? Cause these threads have been happening consistently at the same time of year (as the placements start and for about 2 months after) since ranked started. It's not a new thing, people just forget. Next thing to approach is where you said it'd be the same if you'd just afk'd for your placements you'd still get bronze 5. While this may be true, your MMR would be significantly lower (not to mention you'd probably have gotten a few warnings and at least a restriction). So if you'd have done that you wouldn't have been able to climb to bronze 4 in a day as your winning LP would have been a lot lower for some time in accordance with your lower MMR. You may have won more often though, or lost more, I dunno how low bronze 5 games are other than from the friends I spectate and those are pretty depressing to watch. I for one actually managed to place higher than I finished last season due to some hard grinding in the pre-season, finishing there as plat 5. I got placed gold 3 after ending the last official season gold 5. I know that me and a few friends that actually knew (like anyone that knows what MMR reset means) that we'd be placed down worked reasonably hard to be certain we wouldn't be placed back in silver. Some of us made it, some didn't. The ones that didn't, didn't complain and are now already back in low-mid gold with me. Are you happy I read your post now?

: I was Silver 2, I'm Silver 5. My wife was Silver 5, she's now Bronze 4. From an experience standpoint, we should expect to be placed lower than we finished last year. You'd have an issue with players feeling like they'd plateaued if they were at the same level. If that's your cap, why play more ranked that season? Just give up after placements and get your reward. Or the even worse scenario, players could lose a few games and started slipping into lower ranks than they were, enforcing the "don't play ranked" mentality. Starting lower we've got the mentality of "I was X rank before, I can get back there again!" which motivates you to play ranked. So if we have to start lower, the real question is if we should have placement matches at all or if we should just be placed at a lower spot and told "work up from here". I think that's what's really brought into question. Should I just be demoted 3 tiers? 5? Do you drop players an equal amount of ranks or do you drop them a fixed MMR value? Do you drop them individually instead of a sweeping change to all, and how would you compute that? How does that effect the pre-season, when fewer players play ranked? Do players feel compelled to play more in the pre-season because they'll be randomly dropped a few ranks later? There is no good answer to these questions. All of them have their nice things and their flaws. TL;DR: No matter what system you pick, there will be people who feel cheated by it.

Let me ask you one question: If you have to drop X tiers every season, so u can go up again... Do you think that having placement matches makes sense? Because i see it just like a loss of time if that's the mentality

: I didn't read cause it's a pointless topic. They're not going to change it as it's working perfectly to what they want to happen. It's meant to reset EVERY SEASON. People are SUPPOSED to be placed down to prove that they deserve to be in the rank they achieved previously or however they or anyone wants to justify it. This is probably the over 100th thread of this topic, not even including the ones that got deleted. The discussion is silly and pointless by now and will happen in exactly the same way at exactly the same time next year. So be on time next year if you wanna get it read by anyone other than the people STILL crying about how placements suck.

: Every year the same crying. Diamond/ master/ challenger are all placed in plat, plat gold, gold silver, etc.. It should be known by know where you are roughly going to get placed.

Actually last season i went from unranked, to silver 5, with only 2 wins, and i admit i was really bad at the time.... Still, you give no opinion about how to improve things, as i requested in my post Will i get a constructive critique or i lost my time writing?
: Gonna file this under the yearly -new season people whining about ranked placement system- that I'll continue to not actually read cause they all sound the same after the 2nd or 3rd. They've actually improved how ranked works with the free win system so getting demoted sucks less. I'm gonna continue being happy about that and not ask for more since I believe the way they do it makes sense.

I never got any message after my black screen.. you might also have a 3rd party software, such as LOLReplay, a firewall, or something causing this. Also, try restarting your modem if you still didn't, and everything you can remember, because riot took 26 hours to answer me, and offered no compensation. The game is all bugged somehow, and this had exactly to happen during the bonus Ip week in EUW :( Best of luck solving your issue!

Just an update: i finally got the riot response for my ticket (after 26 hours). I got NO COMPENSATION for any of my time not playing (15 games and 6512 ip lost). Ty Riot for the bugged game, not giving me any solution to the issue, for loosing my time trying to fix your bugs, and no compensation... Te copy-paste of the answer: "Hello Summoner, Please accept my apologies for any trouble you’ve experienced because of this issue. We strive to provide players with the best service possible and do our best to solve problems quickly. Though I am not able to discuss why we issue compensation for certain issues that impact our player-base, I must inform you that we decided not to compensate for this issue. Because of this, I unfortunately will not be able to accommodate your request. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
