QFT. After the reset I went 3 -0 and then 0-11 solo queing before I picked up another win. I had about 6 in a row where 1 to 2 people were either afk or left immediately, and after that it was newbie island. I actually had a teammate rage quit yesterday after I "kill stole." I was playing Teemo and had left a mushroom in the grass in that lane probably 5 minutes earlier. After my teammate had been chase out of his lane, the opponent popped into the grass to blue pill out, hit the shroom and died. I also had a teammate yelling because I didn't heal him as Amumu during a teamfight and was pissed that I took exhaust instead of heal because that "caused him to die."

I'm not perfect, and I've had bad matches, but jesus, I never went anywhere close to 0-11 in beta.

I understand your intentions, it doesn't completely make sense. To make a silly analogy from another game, 5v5 queues in world of warcraft are sometimes extremely long. However, they don't match you up against a 3v3 team and a random 2v2 team, because that would be absurd and the 3v3 and 2v2 would be slaughtered. There might just be a point where the game has to say "sorry, there aren't any other 5 player premade groups playing, try to queue again later or solo queue"

Last match I was in was just a complete slaughter. SS shows the end score.

Zileas, do you also take care of bad enemy teams? Unfair matches because of you having a bad team is terrible, yes, but I do not have fun stomping far weaker players as well - just take all my most recent games as an example, I stomped most of them with no problems at all.

Well here is my first game of the day, starting off strong. Singed and Teemo both went AFK like 15 minutes in. At least gangplank stuck around although he was terrible. between the 3 they went a combined 6-21 if i remember correctly.

If we double the concurrency of the game, this happens half as much, etc. It's just that the best of the best are going to destroy someone eventually.
that was the 2nd time the matchmaking system put me against reginaid that day. i solo queued both times.

and as flight said, i didn't make top 500. my team was good and they belonged in that game, but i didn't. could you please tell me what my elo is?

Here's a slightly different one for you, Zileas:

Saturday night, I had two games in a row where the game ended with my team surrendering at 15-20 minutes in. I was 0/0/0 and ended up in a solo lane both games--my teammates in the other two lanes had died multiple times before I had even hit level 6. At the time of surrender, the opposing teams had about 15 or more kills ahead.

I did make top 250 ELO in beta and I was level 11 or 12 at the time, so I don't think my ELO is that bad right now, and I should be avoiding newbie island.

Sadly, I don't have any screenshots to help, but they should be within my last 10 games.
