Wasn't implying that it is or isn't. What I was pointing out is that Flex Queue wasn't created with the sole purpose of giving duo's a way to play ranked together, but rather giving groups of 3+ players an option to play ranked together. EDIT: And, as far as technicalities go, no. 2 is not a group, but rather a pair.
I'm a math guy so 2 is a group for me (ty algebra)
: And tell that to adc/supp that try to climb solo in this meta.
In the meta where support items are busted and can keep an adc alive longer than a tank? Easy enough to climb

Flex Queue was implemented so that groups of friends could play ranked together. Groups of 3+ can use it as a way to play together, without being forced to go into a Normals game. The queue you're complaining about is called Solo/Duo queue, not "Solo Queue". Most people refer to it only as "Solo" queue, because for the most part, they play alone. But it still open for Duo's.

archerno1 (EUNE)
: Its called SOLO/DUO queue. That means both SOLO And 2 man premades are welcome. Why would they remove it?
Because premades can go to flex queue now

: Please delay Eternum Cassiopeia release for 1 day for each complaint
Please do, there's people complaining about it when it's honestly really cool because the ult doesn't stone them it eternum's them!
Necrozard (EUW)
: ALERT : A new kind of bot released in Coop vs AI
: I don't see how this is balanced
What did you expect? Riot would never let the ADC role become anything more than essential every game. Wouldn't want any champ {{champion:266}} {{champion:69}} {{champion:107}} or role *cough* _assassins_ *cough* to be useless or anything now would we?
: PSA: Bad People Know That They Are Bad. So SHUT THE FUCK UP.
I thought the title meant "bad" as in people who troll or have malicious intent of any kind. Still a valid point.

: The correct reaction to seeing Yasuo in ranked
"Oh boy I bet it's that fucking noose meme again!" "Thank God, LF came though"
: Premades are usually individually worse than the solo players in terms of skill, their advantage of being in a duo is balanced by the fact that they are probably a hundred or two mmr below you.
Always fun to have a duo on my team who sucks...
: Can we please be allowed to see which players are premade?
Riot took that away from LoLNexus because...reasons?
: So you have to manually go into the interface and turn on/off sounds every time you want to get in a queue? Sounds like a huge waste of time on something that should be a simple feature.
It's not interface, Gath said to turn off the sound from volume mixer.
: But then you can't hear the sound when the queue pops. EDIT: actually in the sound mixer it is two different things, so sorry Gath, you are right.
But OP said he wasn't in queue, he's sitting there waiting to hit "find game"
Aenaeus (NA)
: Why did Riot remove Zephyr?
Because Tenacity is close to Tencent and Riot is trying to remove them
: Akali is a "ball of stats" champion that should never be allowed to be good.
"Hey Akali's weakness is her lane phase. Better give her sustain and more damage!" -Riot

It has no basis. Just experience, which takes into account even less factors.
Because a website stating MMR and match history is just experience. Makes sense to me!
: My point is that anecdotal evidence is even worse than that. It has no basis. Just experience, which takes into account even less factors. For the most part you could account for premades, you could tell if players tend to play together often, and that would help identify most of the cases of that.
Except if it's only one game together we can't. Not to mention they may party up after winning a game together, meaning one game factors the premade it while the other doesn't.
: Did you seriously just only address my first paragraph? Are you reading in order to understand or are you just reading so that you can prime a response and fire it off? Gonna be honest it's a little discouraging when it looks as if you read my first sentence and then gave up reading because you already had a response formulated. We can see much of the outcomes, but we do not know the actual rules by which it reaches those outcomes. There are a number of different ways it could make it's decision. It is erroneous to assume that it attempts to control your win-rate and keep it at 50% because we do not know if that is a rule that it uses to make its decisions about who to match us with and against. Off the top of my head, you could just be getting matched at a higher level, and getting other teammates who also have higher MMRs than their rank. Just because somebody on your team gets snowballed against and also happens to be a low rank does not mean that they are consistently a feeder, just that they are tilted or having a bad game. That aside, anecdotal evidence by its very nature is a limited viewpoint. It comes from a limited group of people who have had a similar experience. It is based off of the experience, and not the methods by which the experience was created, and it is extremely easy to miss key factors due to not knowing which rules are used and to what degree they are used or what priority they are used in.
Reading the first paragraph and responding while I wait in queue :^) jk your entire post falls apart at that one line. It's not so much limited, it's just that there's a flaw. It's not so much anecdotal when we CAN get 25-50 people for this but we can't see premades, ruining the entire experiment with one variable.

: It's absurd that RIot has allowed this to happen for so long. Rengar suffers while Twitch is around.
I think it's because of Rengar's new W. Not only is it a QSS, but it also heals a % of the damage he took. Using empowered W then regular W can heal you 100% after a burst of damage. Riot also has this weird idea that a champ is balanced if their weakness is "they need items". Just look at {{champion:41}}, guy can spawn a barrel on you and instantly detonate it over a wall/out of a bush or if you're CC'd and chunk all 5 of your team is 0.75 seconds because "xDDD he needs 2 farm 4 items!". I feel that's the problem with champs like {{champion:112}} {{champion:67}} {{champion:23}} {{champion:24}}
: It is easy to develop misconceptions about a system when one does not know the actual methods by which the system acts. Anecdotal evidence is all based on a limited viewpoint of the system. It makes it very difficult to properly confirm or deny a hypothesis, or even attempt to perform an experiment, because without knowing all of the factors that are used, it is too easy to attribute a change to the wrong factors. If you want to pull data for many players, and specifically their match histories for like 25 or 50 games... be my guest. If you can cross reference their win-streaks and loss-streaks to show that there is an overwhelming correlation, I would be inclined to believe you. But I cannot accept anecdotal evidence as the sole basis for a claim. _Case in point about anecdotal evidence, there was a guy who took aspirin and died. Does that mean we should ban aspirin? Maybe, but we should probably investigate first, maybe confirm cause of death, and see if the aspirin could have affected his body in a way that could have triggered whatever killed him._ _Later it was found out that he had had a bleeder stroke because his blood was too thin, and once we knew that aspirin thins blood we would know to not prescribe it to patients with already thin blood or who are at a higher risk for strokes._
Except it';s not based on a limited viewpoint. We can view our live match team mates/enemies and their MMR on LoLNexus. The only reason this wouldn't be concrete is because premades exists and we can't see who is premade. Someone ranked Gold 4 with an MMR of Silver 1 can play in Gold 2 because they're premade with their Gold 1 friend with Plat 5 MMR.
: Why is account sharing illegal? He is lower elo than me so I'm not boosting. It's just that he's gotten banned so much so he plays on my account cuz all of his accounts are banned.
"Yeah I knew this guy was a pyromaniac who burned down 4 houses he stayed in, but I still think he's an OK guy and will let him live with me"
: PERMA-BANNED PETITION FOR REDUCED PUNISHMENT
Account sharing is also bannable so...
: PLEASE REVOKE I MESSED UP
Good guy confessing his mistake.
: I mean no offense by this but that is all correlative evidence. And correlation is not necessarily causation. If a red car is driving by my house every time I make pasta for dinner, is my cooking pasta the cause of that car turning down my street? Probably not. What we need is Rioter input on this issue, they have access to the code of it and should know how it chooses who to match together.
Except Riot doesn't send us any data. And anecdotal evidence in the amount we've had over the years? more than enough
: I think they're suggesting that the current Void models aren't even able to make the motions associated with certain abilities. Like your suggested Ahri wouldn't have a Void Q animation. Not sure they half assed the models hard enough that this would actually be the case, but I'm pretty sure that's what this person was suggesting.
I understand they didn't make them. I'm explaining what Torm meant. Some skins are retextured models but the abilities aren't changed.
: It appears your comment is funnier than my post. I am at once amused and sad.
: Ah there's the fib!
Nice try guy but Toronto doesn't know fashion
: {{champion:83}} It works trust me {{champion:83}} soon enough... {{champion:83}} any minute now {{champion:83}} .... I'm going to get a drink at the bar with my buds... {{champion:112}} {{champion:69}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:136}} {{champion:98}} AY YORICK WELCOME BACK!
Sukishoo (NA)
: You don't get it k.
Let's say there was an Ahri model of the void monsters. She doesn't need a Void-based orb, charm, or fox fires. Her Orb looks the same, her charm, and the fire whisps all look the same. Her base model is different. Think of {{champion:22}}'s woad skin.
: I work in a store int the fashion district of one of the biggest metropolitan cities in na
Ah there's the fib!
: nope I'm only 5'8 and I'll pound you
I'm 5'9 :^) get pranked manlet!
: you still a mofo clown
Next month I will be an official one!
: THAT never happens .. I work retail , shit never happens like that
Then you clearly don't work retail or you're in a small town/store.
: and fr you a clown.... run up
Jokes on you I didn't finish clown school yet :^)
: Why do people think that the system gives you worse teammates to counter-balance a win-streak?
Because it literally does. I've had games with one plat player on the enemy team with 2 golds and 2 silvers vs a team of 3 golds and 2 silvers. If you ever go on a winstreak you'll notice it. You suddenly get some guy on tilt, who tells you in the chat and flames all game. I never see those guys at all unless someone on my team is on a super winstreak.
: I'm just sayin if you can back up laughin at a person than you should justify a person calling someone trash. Both actions show no respect for the one being disrespected
Laughing at someone making a fool of themselves =/= agreeing with them. It's like the crazy people who go to retail and yell at the cashier about the prices.
: I don't value their opinion and honestly they can go into the abyss with all the other trash players I've encountered and stay there. If they wanna laugh , then laugh, If we ever link up up in real life I'll just trash them fr
"I'll beat them in a fight irl" kek I bet your dad also works for Nintendo and you're a 6 foot 5 inch honor student at Princeton too
: LMAO I'm not upset at all, I'm just shitting on these trash people who for a fact farm honors by being fake
My boy you're so triggered you're posting and arguing on their website, letting others laugh at you.
: Inting teammates in a premade ganged up and reported me.
: THIS GAME SUCKS .... I JUST GOT PERMA BANNED FOR TELLING A FEEDING NASUS AND THRESH THEY SUCK GG..
: HOW COULD YOU DO THIS RITO? YOUR HONOR SYSTEM STINKS!
: lmao you get your feelings hurt over internet words, pathetic
But you just got upset over a virtual ban and a "good riddance" lmao
: Will you please reform me.
You had like 3 warnings dude
