: unpopular opinion
As a diamond player who Smurfs a lot I have a unique perspective. The game and skill floor has definitely changed over the years. The first few years it wasn't too hard to climb, lots of people were new to the game and there was little to no comeback mechanics in the system. Fast forward to today and the average player base (which is around silver-gold) has lots more experience and also a wide range of skill levels due to 1) a natural bell curve because of the sheer number of players in those elos and 2) new accounts in ranked Start around those elos which includes new players and smurfs This is why it's become a pretty frustrating point for many. Your top lane might be a bronze player vs a gold, mid might be diamond vs silver, jungle is silver vs silver, and bot lane is gold vs plat. (I'm judging on skill not implying actual rank or their MMR.) When you have such mismatches in skill it feels like a coin flip - i.e. Who got the really good teammates and who got the really bad ones. So yes in my opinion it's harder to climb these days. The player base has changed, riots ranking system has not. Also, I think any system that bases a solo q rank solely on winning or losing a 30 min 10 person game is the wrong way to go.
