Because they dumped $100million + into LCS and stopped trying to improve the basics of the game.

: Matchmaking at its finest
The matchmaker has been putting iron players in my games anytime it decides I should lose. I just had an Iron 4 in my game, and of course he fed and was awful. How does a silver game have an Iron 4 in it>?!?!>?!

: FIX YOUR MATCHMAKER!!!!!!!!!!
And my next game the enemy team has an iron player. Guess what? I won. Of course. This matchmaker is garbage. It's not even close to making fair games. Which ever team get the iron player loses. Matchmaker is picking winners and losers. There is no 50% chance to win when you are getting people who are A FULL TIER LOWER THAN YOU on your team! I would really like Riot to speak on this. Where are the red posts? How can this be a competitive environment when matchmaker is pairing us with people a full tier away?!?! Stupid!
: FIX YOUR MATCHMAKER!!!!!!!!!!
Matchmaker is picking winners and losers before the match even begins! It is handi-capping teams with better or worse teammates. This is probably about 90% of the determinant of win/ lose! Fix it! Get rid of shitty MMR! Pair people with-in their tier!
Rioter Comments
: Well you did it riot. You broke it.
But but they invested $100 million in LCS! IT MUST SUCCEED! You gotta wonder how a spectator sport will succeed when no one wants to play this game and therefore have no interest in spectating. This is what happens when a big corporation takes over a good product and apply the corporate business model. It turns to shit. The corporate overlords wont take any responsibility either. They will make excuses about how its not their fault.

: It is funny that you are being ranked by your rank, yet you get matched in games by your MMR. Gold Players matched against Diamond 2 player to get out of gold. Totally fine.
Dahaaka (EUW)
: Agreed, Ranking means literally nothing, i have 2 friends, silver 1-2 they perform 9/10 games better than plat ranking players. at start, when they were b3-2 they would have 80%+ winrate, they play good, carrying games, even skipping some of the ranks, but then system started to put them with ppl of 30%> winrate which caused them both stuck there. their mmr is still high. Watching their match history and seeing stats like: 15/6/9 - loss 3/1/14 - loss 21/8/9 - loss like wtf?? why they must suffer bcz of that? If the rank system would work by mmr, everything would be much much better, especially for them.

No that is the hidden MMR trying to unsuccessfully adjust your handicap with crappy matchmaking. Also prob, some badluck.
: It didn't. Matchmaking still works the same as it use to. The gameplay itself has just deteriorated. However, as long as people are dumb enough to continue to blame matchmaking, nothing will get fixed.
Dude, stop. You arent convincing anyone.

This effectively forces you to stay within your bracket. It is a stupid system that doesnt work. That rumor was shot down a while ago. MMR simply puts you with 9 other players within 5 points of your own. https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752954-Matchmaking-Guide >In a perfect match, ten individuals with identical MMRs queue at the same time, each having selected a unique position that they’re well-suited for. That situation is incredibly rare depending on who is queueing at the time, so sometimes teams can have very slight skill differences (on average, no more than 4-5 MMR).
after playing several thousand games, I don't believe it. That may be how they expect it to work, but it doesn't.

The MMR system has proven time after time to be useless and unfair. Riot have had 9 or 10 years to come up with a better system yet they refuse to listen That is completely false. The mmr system has proven to work every season despite all of the flaws of the league community. There is no better system from a matchmaking aspect and all of the flaws you have pointed out are attributed to other aspects of the game.

Yes, if they are showing that they are toxic beyond reform like this guy. A sharp decrease in toxicity and trolls would likely attract and keep new players which Riot desperately needs. But your assertion that it wouldn't work isn't really accurate. You cant just get a new credit card.

Because they didn't ban people's accounts by credit card number and name, that's why. But yeah, when you have a bunch of kiddos whose parents are paying for it, or who just dont care about having money in general yet, it makes its tough.
: There have been so many times that I am utterly AMAZED at the lack of skill level in high elo master and grandmaster games. To the point where any sane human being would be unable to flame 100+ games unless they literally did not type anything. These players are a bigger plague than any toxic thing I have ever said across any games. My first account, I had for over 2 years, then when it got permabanned, why would that suddenly encourage me to become a better person? I kept making more and more accounts, because I literally do not care at this point, and let everything I want to say be released immediately instead of self tilting myself to another dimension by not typing and potentially breaking everything around me. 22 accounts happened like nothing, I can barely even make it to 30 before I get permabanned now to play in high elo.

I dont believe you. And that just makes you sound like you are wasting your money. And by that logic you are paying Riot to ban your accounts. If it was a monthly paid service it would be easier to track and ban individual users, and there would be a greater incentive to keep one's account.

Make the game a paid. If people had to pay for the game they wouldn't troll so much because their accounts would have cost them actual money, and you could ban people by credit card number and name.

Not even. Because unranked players are a gamble. Some are really good and some are bad. It adds randomness to the game instead of a straight tier ladder. It makes no sense in competitive play!

It was a frustrating experience with a company that doesnt respect its players, and a crappy ranked system with a hidden MMR that makes no sense at all and is insanely frustrating to deal with.
Nitehunter (EUNE)
: Lol matchmaking system sucks
Its the matchmaker MMR dogma. If you win too much it tries to lower your winrate to 50% by giving you bad teams. Usually you hit promos after a win streak and your MMR spikes. The matchmaker MMR correction will usually over shoot you low, and you will have to climb back. It's awful. Whether you win or lose a game has little to do with how you play most of the time. It has more to do with how much of a handi-cap matchmaker gave you when assembling your team. Have you ever noticed you have games where you don't do much and you win? And then other games where you carry hard, yet lose? Thats matchmaker assigning you a handi-cap when it picks your teammates. Its utter trash system.

Yup. I asked why are 100% of my ranked games vs unranked players? Never got an answer. Riot just ignore us now. I deleted this game. I hope they lose another 50% of their revenue this year.

I said when Sylus was announced he wasn't a champ that could be balanced. Looks like I'm right.
