Hi everyone, I am investigating several potential upgrades for the matchmaking systems and am interested in collecting some feedback from you – the players! If you have played a game you felt you had no chance of winning, or a game where you felt a player or two was too high or too low skill for the game, help me improve the matchmaking!

*PLEASE e-mail (Matchmaking [[[at]]] riotgames.com) these details directly. Thank you!

1) What is your Summoner name?

2) What was the game mode? (Normal, Normal Draft, Ranked)

3) What was the map? (Summoner’s Rift, Dominion, Twisted Treeline)

4) Were you queuing with a friend?
a. If yes, how many friends? (1, 2, 3, 4?)
b. If yes, and ranked, what were you and your friends’ Elo(s)?
c. If yes, and normal mode or normal draft, what was the Level and win/loss of you and your friends?

5) If you are below Level 30, do you have a Level 30 account?

6) Any specific reason(s) you felt the game was unbalanced?

7) A screenshot of the end-game score

You might benefit searching around a bit. I've seen a fair number of threads with sub 30 players being matched in full 30 games.

Edit: Found one. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=1750067

Doubt true ELO will be seen in very many people. There are 9 variables in every game, its impossible to tell.

I dont play ranked games or normal games.

wait..

ranked games and normal games have such crappy match making when you start out.

Got guys with like 400 wins who are feeding while your on your 7th win.

ppfffttttttt..

gave up there,

wait normals?

yea i rage when i waste 40 minutes teaching a lv 8 how to last hit.

My norm elo should be pretty good at 450 - 380 but i guess not..
