The problem isn't that riot has a formula better than mmr in their back pocket and they simply are choosing not to try it. The problem is that riot cannot find anything better.
It makes me wonder why the entire Concept & Creations board exists in the first place, when Riot is too insecure to do absolutely anything, anywhere, ever.

The fact that some 0/9/1 buffoon is allowed to lower your MMR is half-assed.

: Because we have no way of determining performance accurately enough that such a system would outperform mmr. We saw what happened when riot tried to implement a grading system and that was a disaster. Mainly comes down to two specific problems: 1) the parameters for a good performance depend heavily on champion matchup and team compositions. With 139 different champions, you have something to the order of 5x10^14 different combinations of 5 v 5 each of which play slightly differently. This also changes every patch making it impossible to create a computer program to accurately judge how well you played 2) the parameters of a good performance depend heavily on how much resources and pressure your team affords you. A good performance when your jungler is helping you 24/7 is completely different from a good performance when you are camped.
Then they should make it simple with two factors: 1. Only include the part of the game before 15 minutes or whenever the teamfights begin. They can make a program that shows if five people are standing next to each other or not. 2. Only include the raw factors that are most obviously contributing to the deterioration of the late game. Gold earned/gold you gave the enemy by dying. Something like that. Anything!
: They could be based on performance, but that would make a losing streak hit harder than it does now. Why should a silver player drop into bronze because of a bad week, when they are legitimately a silver player? It's a well known fact that people hate losing more than they love winning, and while MMR does harm winning more than it does losing it does lessen the sting of a losing streak.
Two things. 1. MMR makes losing streaks worse! Because every loss you suffer lowers your MMR, making it even harder to gain LP. 2. If someone is "having a bad week" and still legitimately going into ranked games knowing he'll do poorly, he belongs in Bronze!!!! He could play normals! ARAM, even! But he chooses to make the lives of 4 other people worse!

: plat players tend to go 0/7 in lane more often than in the lower elo's imo. Also if riot make it based on performance ppl would be trolling to get High CS numbers + desperately trying to stay out of any possible fights so they get more / lose less LP. I rly hate playin'with kda hunters.
Maybe that would give Riot the incentive to change the S-system to not rely so heavily on CS! Maybe they could *only* judge your performance in the early game, before one team snowballs into a guaranteed KDA-machine. So many options they could look into, but they never will.

Oh man, that's terrible! That would be pretty overpowered if she had two other pieces of hard cc and a way to get a massive amount of bonus armour during it, but nope! She'll pop like a balloon every single time she lands her easy, large-hitbox root!
: 2018 Ranked Placements Venting post!
I wouldn't be as upset/frustrated if I wasn't placed in the hardest ELO to climb out of. High silver/low gold is where the shit players and good players are at 50/50 odds, leaving you at the fate of luck.
: Anyone else tired of losing because of an Autofill?!?
Honestly, even if the autofilled person gets to switch with someone else, I still know I'm gonna lose, because someone who can't handle it will obviously be a bad player regardless.
: 2018 Ranked Placements Venting post!
It would be nice to see everyone Plat+ get reset to Gold 3 every season. That would dilute the shit players just a bit, make the beginning of the season more interesting, and give the Diamond people on these boards more to brag about.
: Your logic is flawed, because if that's really what's going on then there's an equal chance of the enemy team getting the players who don't know what they are doing, so it shouldn't effect your W/L rate

I dunno. I once made a post about how items should all get a special enchantment path for 1000 gold to buff a certain aspect of the item, during the time Kayn came out. Next thing I know, Ornn exists. rip me
Candurill (EUW)
: Most likely coincidence. And if, by a slim chance, it wasn't coincidence, they would never admit it because of legal reasons. Sorry man. But to be honest, I think that riot came up with it themselves, since its a pretty popular expression and the design teams are very creative.

I thought you were giving tips for a while but Bait out his ult, as you would an Illaoi, because he gets twice as much damage during it (twice as many Q's and that aoe thing) You might need someone with a knock-back, since his W is crippling in a 1v1

He's good against anyone who can't easily close the gap between him and them, but yea he's hella unique for a mage

They should buff Thresh's Flay passive to wind up faster with more attack speed
: They're going to add another item with FQC's active that's tuned more towards supports, so I assume Ivern will just buy that instead of FQC.
Didn't they take the active off a different item in the past just to fit the FQC? Now they're going back?
