how about you tell the person responsible for the leagues system to make it possible to drop out of a V division.

Boosting is encouraged when you can't drop out of gold/plat/diamond V

They are making that possible...

Do people even research things BEFORE posting?

Hasn't he been in a slump ever since he started duoing with that one chick?

And all the "smurfing" makes him feed in Diamond games. Lol

Are you sure about that? Are you REALLY sure about that?
Let me share a little history of me and my friends smurfing. I know a semi pro Challenger adc who won 9 out of 10 of his placement games in his smurf. He was placed in bronze 1.

I know a diamond 1 jungle main who won 8/10 of his placement games. He was placed in silver 5.
When I started S3 for ranked I won 8/10 of my placement games. I was placed into silver 5.
My friend won 4/10 of his games. No joke. 4 out of 10. He got silver 3. Hes been demoted to silver 5 and stayed there ever.
Can you explain to me how this happens with such a finely tuned, well oiled machine that is the LOL ranking system?

If the player owns a VPN or VPS how will you weed out the boosters from the people who just want to hide their real ip?

Smurfing is fine.

Having multiple accounts is fine.

Giving other people access to those accounts, is not fine.

Duo needs to be removed. It's solo queue.
