I find the elo system heavily flawed....each game is worth less ELO - so if you go down, you have to win more games than you lost just to return to where you were started....this makes it nearly impossible to ascend the ladders after a high volume of games - I believe someone did the math and found that after 250 ranked games your elo is basically solidified - if you find this is the case, alt account is the best you can do...sorry....


After 250 games your elo reflects your ability. The reason its hard to move up is because it takes time to get better. All creating a new account would do is give you massive elo fluctuation at the start before you end up at the correct level.

First account: 1.1k elo last season. Nothing but afkers for around 30 games.

My brothers account which I also played: 1.6k elo last season. Got lucky in the first few game and had no feeders / afkers.

No indication of my own skill whatsoever.

I didn't want to go into detail cause everyone says the same ****. Like, well you must be some kind of ****ty player if you're at such a low Elo and complaining about ranked. But in reality Elo doesn't leant really reflect the skill of someone. I'm really not a bad player, I'm Stuck carrying every game, and either have a troll or a feeder on my team. It just gets old after 200 games. I'm only 1450, but I know I could easily play with 1800s.


Wait until you actually get there. The game changes. It's not forgiving when you make a baby mistake, because it does cost you a game. 1450 you can run around with 6 tiamats and carry.
