Good Morning

K, something is really screwed up here. I'm trying out ranked matches pretty much for the first time and have been keeping a close eye on elo and how it works.

But than this happens:

Had 1280 elo
Played Morde...and WON the match.
Now have 1255 elo.

How does this make ANY sense???

You might have been reported as "unskilled player" some time in the past this season and they might have lowered your elo because of that report.

Wait, what? They can do that? That's so broken, just because of the fact that trolls will abuse the "report unskilled player" button. Didn't win your match because you went 0/18? Don't worry, you can blame your 8/3 adc! He's obviously unskilled because he's not you! And make sure you tell everyone on both teams to report him as well!

True story.

so, reporting 'unskilled' automatically lowers elo?

well then....

if you can't beat them, join them.

I think it goes to the tribunal and instead of ban, they lower your elo by a certain amount. I am not sure but I would love to hear from RIOT about this. See if they can explain how that works

I would like to hear about this too, sounds totally unfair due elo is based on you r win/lose ratio.

Unskilled player is matchmaking only. I highly doubt it lowered your Elo.
