-5v5 premade
-3v3 premade
-5v5 solo q

Hopefully they've made it so that if you have less then the required amount of people to play in a certain bracket , they wont let you play. If they did, then people who are anticipating to be ranked as a solo qer, find themselves getting their character banned x_x
But see, my point isn't about 2/3 mans getting into 5s, its about the fact that 2/3mans don't have a shot at getting ranked in 5s. For those people that want to play ranked games but lets say they only have 1 friend they play with -- they are SoL.

Take SC2 for example. I can que up for 4v4 ranked with just me and my buddy and we'd get matched up with another 2 to make our 4. So if the matchmaking system in LoL is currently setup to support "finishing" the group for 5s then I don't understand what is the reasoning behind not allowing that for a ranked 5s league?

Question:

(I realize that with 243857923847 replies, most questions will get ignored, but I am trying to follow the recommended procedure here)

How will initial ranking be determined, or will all players start at the same rank? Specifically, will ELO factor into initial rank, or later rank?


(The reason I ask is because if ELO figures into ranking, then games right now are psuedo-"ranked", in that they may affect where someone starts out on the ladder.)

They are aware of a statistical difference (like ~2%) in win/loss percent between the top and bottom team, and have stated that they are looking into ways to fix it. For now, it's a factor, but at a very low %, it's not a huge factor.

Questions:
i remember reading the interview of Tryndamere, it was said there that when season one comes out that there will be introduced some new maps and possibly game modes. is this true and is there any details you can share?
In that same interview it was also mentioned that there will be greater stat tracking, i.e. all of the champs i have played as and the W/L/A numbers, tower kills, etc.?


love the game and i will continue to spend my money for such a great product, thanks so much

For teams of two, you join the solo queue (see the 6th pic 'SR 1's & 2's). For teams of three, you can play TT. Teams of 3-4 are out of luck for SR, but this means they don't need to worry about too many ranking groups. I imagine they're working on different sized maps at the moment (I see 4v4, 1v1 and possibly 6v6 or 7v7 in the future)
