I played a game with you when you first got back after you uninstalled. Made my day because your learn 5hit thread helped me climb up to top 500 (i've since fallen but I got up there).

So thanks.

because that's not how elo moves, it's not a simple 0 sum system first of all, and secondly teams are not static.

most importantly the "placement" games greatly imbalance the system. it doesn't pair you against other people who gain and lose the same amount of rating that you do.

if you lose the game and lose 50 pts, the guy on the other team still gets his normal 12 gain, not 50.

if it were a true bell, why is the "top" shifting further and further. 1900 used to be the best rating, now we're looking at 2500s

Post more. Start a blog. Something.

Your writing about LoL is 10x better than any super high Elo player's.

Sorry, but this really bothers me. It's not a 50/50 chance unless you, also, may play a crit annie. Otherwise your chance (assuming it is "random") would be 1:1.25. x_x

while true, i was merely quickly making a point, not bogging the argument down in a 4slot vs 5slot debate
