The battle against Elo Boosting commences everyday.

We get an extremely high volume of reports of Elo booster and Elo Boostees. We want to find justice for these boosters as much as you do. Our investigations on these players are very in depth and in some cases may take some time. IP addresses and Lolking scores are not as reliable as you may think and we always want to make sure that we are 100%. We do this so we catch the guilty ones and ensure that no innocent bystanders get caught in the cross fire [shared IPs, College/PC Cafe IPs]

Since the results are not instant it may seem that we aren't looking into this or that we don't care. Since the end of the season is near there are those summoners who are desperate for those rewards. This is the reason for the spike. As players are seeing the spike in games we are seeing the spike in reports and we go through and investigate every single report made.

As Summoners you have every right to help us find these boosters/bostees.
Efficient reports include:
Summoner name - Of both the Boostee and Booster if you know but either summoner name will work.
Screen Shots - It's not always apparent that a booster will admit in chat that they are boosting or a player will say they are playing on a friend to get them out of bronze but if it does and you screen cap it it will help us greatly.

Anything else. If you think it might be helpful to us include it in your report. With this information we can get to our investigations quickly and in some cases be more efficient. Every little bit helps.

i'm pretty sure most boosters are smart enough to use VPNs

You are now my favorite Rioter. Firstly because elo boosting sucks, having earned my place in gold (hopefully even plat) solo, and secondly because Bear Cavalry Sejuani is the best.

I actually met very few obvious eloboosters going from Plat to Diamond...

Sometimes I would think that someone's really good, but it might have been one of his good games.

And some people claim to be "eloboosting" just to get the role he wants, so I don't know if it's fair to ban/suspend players based on that.
