: I'm afraid I don't buy lies about "skills" and "improvement" when 4/5 of your team are picked by an entity who's wealth is based on you playing the game more. But you're free to believe what you want
So you're saying Challenger players are just robots created by Riot Games as propaganda? High elo players (Plat+) aren't good at the game, they're just super lucky or they bought accounts from Riot in some secret underground market? Every single person that's ever been good at the game started somewhere. They definitely didn't sit around and complain about how they can't climb because of everyone else's fault. You need some help man. Defecting on just a game like that demonstrates how you handle your problems in real life... that's def. not healthy my man. Oh well, have fun on the rift.{{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}

No, it's hard for YOU to admit that league is a failed game.

See, there's a huge difference between your own improvement and the actual impact it has on the game. I was playing lux support last game, 7/7/7. Guess what was the burderns' kda? 3/12, 5/11, 3/11, 4/8. No assist above 6. What about the previous game? I was 3/4/10 Them : 4/9 7/9 6/9 8/9. No assist above 8. I have ALREADY improved way beyond that elo. And I'm still correcting mistakes. It's just NOT THE ISSUE. The issue with this game is trash matchmaking that ruins some peoples' games constantely and not others. In my last 10 games, I had ONE occurrence where my team was better. ONE. That's neither balanced nor random. And don't start telling me how we're all the same levels and we share responsibility for the loss : the top goes 0/3 in the first 5 minutes when I'm bot and the jungler dies twice in the other side of the map.
> I have ALREADY improved way beyond that elo. If this is true, why are you still in Silver? The way you talk about the game just shows me and everyone else that may be reading this that your understanding of the game is slim. Stop deflecting

I don't think this game is for you my friend. If you feel that way and you don't like it, find something else
Theorex (NA)
: Can't tell if you are trying to be a dick or if you are actually clueless. I will assume you are being genuine, and try to spell it out for you. They turned up the rate of autofill because the playerbase has dropped significantly. Compile the fact that no one wants to play jungle right now. Now you have less people overall, but even less people in the jungle and support positions. (Support by nature in NA). So to counter longer queue times, the increase the rate of which you have to play that role or will end up playing that role. This is normally completely irrelevant for anything below d3. Because you have a massive grouping. Even at 700,000 people. Let's say that it's even 1/24th of the player base is on at any given time. That is 29,166 people per hour. Of that you will normally play within +/-1% of your skill rating. For someone in the 20% it won't matter much at all. (Gold) For someone in the 10% it will start to be noticed but not really affect majority of games. At the 3% you will feel that in every game (mid plat) 2% you have to be good to even climb now, because what used to 1% problem is now a 2% problem. 1% have fun. If you are wondering that the old 1% problem was it was. 1 game per month diamond 5 players. Playing against people in d1/D2 when in low diamond. Massive skill difference. And you are always on the less LP gains because of 1 game a month players. But now with a lower player base, all of that is shifted down an additional %. Thus inadvertently affecting all elos until gold. Gold is a normalized section, that doesn't really affect anything. Because gold doesn't normally feel the small changes in the game. And silver and bronze don't 100% of the time. Aka. Less players, less people playing specific roles = massive queue time spike. Let's say out of 100 players, 4 are playing support and 5 are playing jungle. You got 2 games of no auto filled, which is 20 players. So 80% of the community is dealing with auto filled. If you increase queue times for try players. Then you are still the minimum increasing it to 15 minute queue times. Auto fill saves time. So that they can get "more people playing the game".
Well Cause (EUNE)
: How many times we have to repeat that matchmaking is based on MMR and not rank??? I don't understand you people
MMR and rank are directly correlated, that's a given. However, considering both Global and champ win rates... the MMR here is massively skewed which means something else is at play in this equation
: LOOOOOL. Are you trolling or you just never played at low elo bc u buy accs?
Also, I'm stuck in P2 currently because I'm just not good enough/knowledgeable enough to climb at the moment. It's the same for you mate.
: LOOOOOL. Are you trolling or you just never played at low elo bc u buy accs?
It's hard to admit you're flawed in a game like League, I get it. But if you want to improve, blaming anything and everything else doesn't help at all. Me making a tangible claim of skewed matchmaking is not the same as you deflecting on the matchmaking system (and teammates) in Silver because you're frustrated. My main currently is currently P2 and this one is P4. I didn't get there from magical luck in the sky. While some people may think I'm a great player, I don't consider myself good at this game and I am CONSTANTLY learning. Even if my teammate makes a vital mistake, I blame myself because I know there's always something I'm doing wrong. There's always something you can do different to improve and you can't find that by deflecting. Just my 2 cents...
: Today I had 7 trash teams out of 8 games. NINETY PERCENT OF MY GAMES WERE LOST BEFORE THEY EVEN STARTED. In those 8 games, I had like 5 trolls. People who afk because you pushed lane. Then int every lane. In my last game, top was 1/11 and jungler 1/6. I was support, and they fed early. I had absolutely nothing to do with it. And it's not the first time. I had tons of chain bad teams. I can believe in some degree of coincidence, but that's too much to be random. Here is one experiment I made in my games : compared winrates of both teams : https://i.ibb.co/kqVybH0/percents.jpg
That's not a matchmaking issue. Low elo is insanely easy to carry friend. Try maybe reviewing your game play and work on improving.
: I would like to play dominion again
It's fast... it's fun... It's Dominion

You could have taken those same players and swapped which team some were on and balanced that game. Though honestly ive seen much worse, your average was only like 2 ranks away from theirs. 3*
Yes I agree, but there is also a considerable difference in both game understanding and consistency between those 2 ranks and a massive difference from a Plat 3 player and a Gold 4 player with under 50% WR
: Your mid's mmr is plat bc they're in promo, your bot lane is a duo so I think they go into harder games to compensate Also only one division separates gold 1 and plat 3 now, and going on their amounts of LP, some of them have been losing recently so their mmr might be high gold The game isn't as unbalanced as you make out imo
: It had 19 votes in 9 minutes not suspicious at all. /s
