Interesting... I'm curious as to what these graphs are based upon though? Obviously these "After Correction" graphs aren't real data, since the fixes haven't been implemented yet. So... what are the graphs based upon?

Also, could we get any more specifics on WHAT the actual changes will be?


Its using the same data, with the corrections applied, then mapping how accurate the predictions then are.

That sam danziger could cosplay a ryze, easily. He's even got the crazy eyes.

Good work btw, guys.

Pretty cool stuff, hopefully this doesn't extend queue times at the Elo extremes.

1) As we all know, blue team has a bit of an advantage right now. We are going to do some steps to reduce this advantage, but we will be matching around this detail for the time being.

I'm curious how you match around it. Do you just put the team that's predicted to win on the purple team? You wouldn't be able to alter the team's ELO rating for matching purposes if you don't know which side they're going to end up on.

yes, we treat blue team as having a certain amount of advantage and match around it.

Zileas: Can you say how you detect carry/feeder? Do you mean one very strong player who tends to dominate the opponents, and one very weak one that tends to die constantly? Since the typical "carry" requires using certain champs, it seems like that would be hard for the MM to account for.
