Hehe. Anyone else notice how the "Legal Jibber-Jabber" included the use of more tracking cookies? I bet correlating IP with elo gain on accounts has nothing to do with the analysis...

What will happen to those who are selling spots on high level teams to low level players? I understand that five games have to be won by that player on that team, but this is a very small barrier.

i dont understand why there are so many negative people on this thread, at least riot is doing something about it, many other gaming companies would not even care, a lot would think "we are profiting still, why care about it" glad to see a lot of people appreciate it as well

by the way, aphromoo has had a banner running across the top of his stream saying he does elo jobs. lol

You have restored my faith, I just hope you get most of them should be fairly obvious. PRetty much look for massive ADC + support win streaks win streaks. since this is the way they usually do it, they work in pairs 1 is support 1 is adc and they rampage bot lane and carry. You will need to monitor this all teh time though, people elo boost all season long.

What about high level 3v3 teams like the one "she" is on, who are boosting their 3v3 elo for rewards. Ive seen and spoken to "she" about this

Also people like 408 and DJ LAMBO that have "Selling plat/dia 3v3 msg me" in their status message
