: Let's start by assuming you're correct, even though you have a sample size of 2. If matchmaking really was fucked up, "gold" and "diamond" would be meaningless, since you can get matched up against anyone anyway. Basically, if the game isn't going to create even situations in terms of MMR, you have basically a 50% chance that your team of golds and silvers is actually higher skill than the enemy plats and diamonds. Literally, in your point to say "rank isn't a display of skill," you say "gold players vs. plat players is unfair and uneven matchmaking." So...rank IS a display of skill. What are some reasons a game might have been golds vs. plats and diamonds? 1. the plats and diamonds have tanked their mmr from bought accounts and are on a steep decline to gold 2. at least one of your golds is a booster or bought account 3. you're the best players in gold facing off against the worst players in high plat, for a game that has an average elo of around plat 3 or plat 2. 4. You are queueing at 3 am and this is the most fair game the system could possibly offer you 5. op.gg is wrong and the ranks are actually closer together than you think Basically, quit yo bitchin
There are far less people playing the game now, therefore you get placed with higher and lower ranks to fill the void.
: Iv avoided ranked for a few months now, played a few games today/yesterday. you guys werent kidding.
Literally just posted this. ( https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/AjtOzy97-ive-lost-24-games-out-of-the-last-26-games )
: People are leaving because riot lets trolls do whatever they want but we can’t say shit to them. Riot has gone full snowflake and can’t handle people being mean but people intentionally losing games is ok.
I agree that they have 100% gone full snowflake. The game is being as AstroTurfed as it can get. Just look at Riot and all it's publicity last year alone. It's insanely sad, but this is what happens when you're located in Cali
: Simply no. Move on and don't do it again.
Nah because if you dislike something, you have to make it known. Or else things will never change.

: Not to try to discredit you, but what's up with the 12 game losing streak? You gotta relax mate. As stupid as it sounds, sometimes you just need a deep breath.
I took a break after every 3 losses. Like, hours of a break. Came back refreshed and untilted.

: I'm sorry you and those silver players had to go through that because if you think about it, everyone suffered. You had to be weighed down by team mates with far less experience and they were forced into an unfair fight. I agree, this is just horrible matchmaking and every single player on a team suffers because of it.
Yeah and I told them that. I complained about it in game and I told them like look, I know it isn't your fault but this isn't fair to either one of us. It's lack of experience.
: He wasn't asking you, he was responding to grimspeak. Use discussion mode to get context when not in general discussion.
: This is why alot of streamers are pushing the idea in their how to climb content, that you really need to start checking stats and dodging. If you'd OP.gg'd your team there it should be obvious to you that you lose that game. It's a shitty unfun solution, but it's really only work around till they stop breaking their game.

Yeah but the fact that you have to dodge because they don't want to invest time and money into making decent matchmaking is bullshit
: That's only one game and it has equal chance of happening on the enemy team.

: how is this possible? riot fix your matchmaking please.
Legit had a Silver Duo in my Gold 3 game. Combined, they had an 8% win rate. The Lee Sin went on to go 0/17/5. 100% unfair and 100% cost me the game.

: Skin for Rakan.. but not for Xayah?
Unpopular opinion. I think it's fine, and look forward to more separate skins in the future. It allows couples who play together to play their favorite instead of matching and basically sharing the same Facebook. Like I LOVE Cosmic Dawn Rakan, and my wifey-poo likes SSG Xayah. We don't share the skin set, we play what we want. Also, Xayah had to be played in order to be able to get a skin anyway, and I'm not sure if she was. So they would either be going against something they've set in stone, or something they said they would 'like to do.'
: I really love this years Invictus skin line but you're 100% correct. Then again as soon as you saw her thighs in game you should have expected them to go full bass and tiddy whenever Camille got a skin. She's an "Old" lady in the same way Zoe is "thousands of years old". League is a game played disproportionately by young men in their teens and early twenties, and old ladies just aren't that appealing to the _majority_ of men. I'm also disgusted I have to say majority instead of all.

: > as long as you’re playing to win and not making anyone else’s experience a bad one. Maybe you've missed this part? Also, it would needed to be 3 months instead of 2 months.
I was Honor 0 on my first or second checkpoint when the article dropped, and I have been playing my best every game.

When the latest season started, there was a bug that downgraded people's honor. I was Level 1, Check Point 3 at that time, but I logged on to find my Honor was Level 1, Check Point 1. I submitted a ticket, they fixed it after they figured out the initial bug. > > But I don't want Riot to fix my honor. I want to know why I did everything the article said, and I'm still not there yet.

Will it not work because I already posted it? https://media1.tenor.com/images/a7297988cd2c2afd75026454a9dad477/tenor.gif
: Slice off the part of the URL after .gif.
: Here's the thing about story telling - everything doesn't have to interconnect. In fact, when you interconnect TOO MUCH, as Riot has been doing by making Targon the Oprah of celestial power, and by making all the evil in the world Void related, stories get stale and the richness of the world degrades severely. And we already know what revived Azir, it was Sivir bleeding to death in the desert - her blood seeped into the earth and reawakened her great x1000 grandpappy Azir through their shared royal blood line. Also, the unnamed emperor's mausoleum above Ne'Zuk's very well could have been Azir's.
