ok since this actually got a bit of views ill change my question so something more senseible - seeing as i literally wrote the original in about 3 seconds.

Im currents at high gold (back and forth between II and I) - and the vast majority of my matches are with 3-4 silver boarders, occasional gold / no boarder and very very few plat.

Is this because average player skill in gold has decreased?
Silver players from s2 have just gotten better?
My mmr is just realy low? (doubt it seeing was going up like +25lp recently and only losing like 10)

My s3 to s2 translation

bronze is still bronze
silver is still silver
low gold = high silver
high gold/low plat = gold
high plat = high gold
low diamond = plat
high diamond = diamonds and high plats

IMO.

Or the silvers are improving

or... and you won't like this...

Your Elo isn't where your visible tier is, and you're playing with high-end silvers because you're that low.

Or it might be completely random for you, and in a week it will go back to gold borders because it throws a different semi-random set of people at you.

People improve. It doesn't mean your elo is worse, it means a gold from S2 is as good as a silver plus 3 or 4 months practice, which is reasonable

according to lolsummoners

The statistics from each tier did not seem to change from Season 2

From personal experience, S3 Diamond games feel like it is less skilled than 2k elo games in S2. There is definitely tier inflation but since new players start at silver, the inflation should be negligible at around silver and becomes more prominent as you move higher

It's a new season, I think you're forgetting that some people can improve at the game.

too many players got pushed upwards in the start of s3, low gold was similar to sliver games from last season. and high gold/plat are still filled with bad players
