Why Even TRY Ranked?
I'm honestly done with ranked. It doesn't matter what elo I hit, I keep getting the 09 tops that rage so hard it isn't even a game anymore. It's just frustrating. I work my ass off to hit 1.3k. 5 straight losses. I'm positive in all of them. That didn't bother me. The raw, swearing, childish rage. Best part? You see them a day later, nothing changes. Neither the tribunal nor the match making system are even worth trying to change. Personally? I don't even want to play LoL anymore. I wish I could just have my money back and my wasted time. Why play a game you can't even enjoy because of one person out of five.
Ranked has so many matching problems, I don't even know where to start:
I don't even understand how Riot's servers match people, but it needs to CHANGE. Based on either W/L ratios or even elo, to an extent, is useless. Ragers can be carried. If anything, it should be based on ingame stats, Going 13/2/13 in the first five minutes? MAKE NOTE OF THAT. Why should that person, regardless of the match outcome, be placed with a 0/9/0 Top next game? The tribunal can only work so damn fast, and what it does is minimal.
The issue that can't be solved is the problem: Free to Play. Pre-School kids can log on and play. What CAN be fixed is adding a requirement of some sort to enter Ranked. Overall KDR/etc based. Something to distinguish good from bad. Let's be honest. It may sound unfair to new players, who can't play well, but who WANTS to go on a losing streak, get yelled at by their team, THEN feel like **** IRL?
Sounds like a rant? Somewhat is. Do I think I'm good? Hell no. I belong, at best, around the 1.3k-1.4k bracket. I'm no god. What I want isn't a free pass to gold, what I want is, to when I que for Ranked, get a team better than blind pick. I take that back. I GET better teams in blind. Ranked's match system should be DIFFERENT and UNIQUE, not just throwing in a rank and basing it off that.
