And you can say a lot of people got unlucky too and got pushed down

Im just saying that the percentages of each tier did not change. lolsummoners.com go to tier and go to D5 and check the names 0 and it will take you their % and this is what you get

Roughly

Bronze is 50%-100%

Silver is 50%-10%

Gold 10%-2%

Plat 2%-.-02% or something like that

Diamond is everything below

While I have no idea what you just said, I find any post authored by someone named "Thong Pimp Slap" to be remarkable in it's own way, and deserving of a careful read.

IMO.
This makes sense because we are dividing less tiers into more tiers.

Considering MMR is different from the league you are in there is no real accurate translation.

I've played with a few challenger tier people and occasionally even play with golds (like smurfs who are 35 and 0) in diamond. And I'm not diamond div 1. I got demoted from diamond div 2 to diamond div 3 in a game where everyone else was diamond div 1. Now I'm diamond 4 (after a little bad luck) and still often have many people who are diamond div 1 in my games. (And I don't duo, so its not my MMR being boosted from that)

What happens in the 9-10 and 2-3% zones? The void?

No offense Zileas because I personally could care less most of the time but since we have a part of the summoners code thats against idk what we call them but "offensive in game names" and this including a report for it.

Not sure if you should post positive feedback on a possible "offensive name".

As I said i don't care about names for the most part but yeah. (no offense once again, almost feel bad posting this)

Ya dude

i'll fix it but you get the point

I did say Roughly. I'm just going by the numbers that the site gives me. It doesn't go into the decimals until 0.9

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.
doubt that seeing as i started at gold V then moved to gold I
