: Toxicity in Plat 1
Plat 1 / Dia 5 is the worst. Been up to Plat 1 92 LP... And tilted in and out of Plat 1 since. It's not even fun.
: Post Game Chat Offenses
You're the one engaging in converation with the angry player. Either leave the lobby or grow thicker skin before you engage with obviously tilted players.
: Don't be that high elo player.
Ridicule is valid form of instruction.

Like everyone on each team gets 6 tier 3 items kind of long. Well if a game goes long then a come-back / throw has already happened OR neither team was never far ahead.
: Should you play all 5 roles?
If you care about fun, play them all. If you care about winning, master 2 roles.
: Most shocking aspect of Ranked that happens all the time....
Happens on a meta level too not just macro in a single game... Like last split when TSM wiped up Immortals in playoffs... Or last Worlds qualifying, C9 reverse sweeping series after series...
: Will ability ratios ever be visible in the game?
In-game no. In new client I hope so.
Rioter Comments
: No thanks, I don't want my games to be decided by who has the one retard on their team, who has the troll on their team, or who has the AFK on their team. The game is meant to be about setting up plays, coordinating with your team, etc. Throwing a bunch of kids together without even having voice chat already eliminates an entire skill group, leaving the game to be decided by champion picks and/or who fed those 5 kills in the first 20 minutes. If you don't like the game the way it is, then you better leave because it's not changing. League is a team game and players who enforce that should be rewarded. There are plenty of other games out there nearly identical to league which are more suitable for solo players, so please, stop making these bull shit threads because nothing will change.

: I don't even understand this. Statistically, you win rate with the premade should be equal to your lose rate against one, but never is... Also, let's not forget the fact that statistically, you are incredibly unlikely to have the premade on your team, as there are fewer spots to fill on the team with the premade example: 4-man with 6 solo players: you have a 1/6 chance of being the guy matched with the premade.

Just fkin stupid shit here, rito. It is not just about winning and losing. It is not fun, even if they are on your team or not. Premades at my elo operate on a completely different level than I can as a solo. It is punishment to be a Solo Quer.
: Dynamic Que is Atrocious.
To all the nay-sayers: I wish we could all be in premade teams of 5. That's really the pinnacle experience of a Summoners Rift game. I also wish I had even 1,2 or 3 IRL, or IG friends to regularly play ranked with. I don't. At Plat 1/2 the pool of people to play with dwindles significantly. Also I work nights, complete opposite schedule as IRL friends and most of people in general. Dynamic Que is more than a tool; it is an in-game advantage, a more enjoyable experience, and I simply do not have access to it. Solo Que is needed.
: Oh, I'm sorry. What am I supposed to infer from "The unfairness to Solo Players is overwhelming."? Is Ranked not all about climbing? Think before you salt.

And it is, there is no disputing the advantages of better communication and cooperation. For players who do not have that luxury (at least somewhat reliably), it is an unfair advantage.

: Honestly, I don't even care about premade groups. What I care about is how large the difference in ranking there can be between players in a premade. If the system is allowing a 10 division difference between players in a ranked game (i.e. Gold 5 and Plat 1 in the same game), there is something horribly wrong.
RoodToob (NA)
: Dynamic? maybe. Boosters will be prevalent everywhere and theres no real reason to believe theres an increase compared to last season
Is that a joke? Booster Que is alive and well much more than it was last season. Much easier and more profitable to get 3-4 boosters que'd together instead of just 2 compared to last season.
ERONATE (EUNE)
: that's not dynamic queue's fault, you could say the same about teammates last season. stop blaming the fact that you can't climb on dq
No. Duo Que is much different for a Solo Player than Dynamic Que. Also, Duo Que happened, but wasn't the norm. Dynamic Que is now the norm.

: Minor things are first met with chat restrictions. Anything being punished is unacceptable behavior, even the minor stuff. If the minor punishments(chat restrictions) don't get them to stop the behavior then they goto a more severe punishment(14 day ban) and if that doesn't change it there is no reason to think they will change anymore so they are removed. It's not like this really applies to the OP anyway.

: Why linking Smurfs to Main Account makes sense in 2016...
To those saying "no one would link"... get real. A lot of people would. But say even a minority of smurfs would, so what. This is only a benefit, no one is penalized for not doing so. I don't get the resistance.
: the accountability is why nobody would do it. almost every smurf i see is poeple intentionally tanking elo to play in lower elo games, most of them talking shit cause they know nothing will happen to main account cause "this is my 7th smurf see if i care about reports you fucking retard"
You have no idea who is or isn't a smurf, literally none. If you take the word of a troll who is intentionally losing a game, then I have a bridge to sell you. Sure not everyone will link, but it's reasonable to assume many would for the perks alone.

Riot would never do this. If a smurf were intentionally retarding their elo climb (like staying in silver when actually diamond), this would require much work of intentionally throwing games and is easily detectable. Both accounts would be disciplined. People are doing this now... linking accounts holds them more accountable for actions on Smurf.

A chat restriction would suffice... unless you've progressed up the discipline ladder and you've already been chat restricted. Personally, I think bans should be reserved for agregious stuff. Just chat restrict people for months if need be for the tame stuff. Also... responsibility should be laid on other players as well to just mute someone they find annoying.
