Full premades in draft is beyond broken and not an achievement to reach high Elo with. To begin with, the playerbase in draft is extremely small. While you premade with some of the highest Elo players in Dominion, if mm can't find you a proper matchup, it will randomly match you up with different Elo ranges far from yours.

I've played against full premades and as I do lose more than I have won vs them. I still gain the same Elo amount in loss or win, even though sometimes their Elo average has been 500 higher than ours. Simply put, it's a joke.
So if you want to brag it up, then man up and try to reach over 2000 by just solo queuing. You'll be amazed over the huge difference over having a fully coordinated team, to a team you'll have to carry hard to just be able to move up.

Im willing to destroy the elo of one of my smurfs and then raise it up to 2k (AT LEAST), playing mostly ashe.

I will do that if that means anything to anyone, what you people think?

(im also willing to listen suggestions on how to destroy my elo, my lowest elo account has 1880 elo and since doding doesnt take away elo...)

In other words you're of the silly opinion that playing a team game as a team is broken.

Why does it never occur to you that someone has to be the top?

When I lose against Mollica's team, I usually lose about -13 elo. And then I queue up and matchmaking throws me against them again. Just saying.

It requires a bit of luck but if you're good, solo queue players can eventually get there too.

Congrats. Maybe I'll get there one day. lol

The big problem is that they are using the matchmaking algorithm from SR, where it is more reasonable for a good player to be able to dominate their lane and then carry the game. If you get a bad team in Dominion there is very little you can do.

They mostly just need to reduce the effect of outliers on team balancing and increase the adjustment for all group queue sizes, most likely needing larger adjustments for smaller group sizes.

Anyway, congrats, Sauron. From what I've seen in the touraments, you guys are just on another level from everyone else.

Congrats, Sauron.

And to all the complainers, play against Sauron, and then say he doesn't deserve his Elo. His individual skill is a large part of what got him up there. I had the privilege of doing so last night, and it was impressive.

Premade 5s (you will probably need to find 4 people who also have their own reasons for losing elo). Win or lose, surrender every single game before it ends.

While you're at it, you can give tips to the players you encounter as your rating plummets. They certainly could use the advice.

Getting above 2k is rather easy solo queue. Think I'm up to 2100+ playing mostly kog who is rarely banned anyway. Not sure if it will stay this way, but all my wins/losses are always 13-14 points either way, even coming from 1850 or so.

Op: grats and I also hope for some dominion ranked, would be very fun.
