Did one of them suggest to read the Summoner's Code instead of go into a rage and make other people not care if they win or not? Seriously, have you not seen that stats on acting rudely and losing versus being helpful and winning. When you help, you might actually make a friend or two that are good and continue to care about getting better.

What's broken is your ability to carry your team. You were fed, but that doesn't mean you carried. Did you secure dragon? Did you ward? Did you gank?
You didn't lead your team to victory. Be a leader. Did you make sure they capitalized on every won teamfight? Were you kill oriented? Or objective oriented? Objectives win the game. Kills look nice but don't do much otherwise besides gives you a bit of gold.

Your opponents are no better than your teammates. And frankly, if you're in the same Elo bracket for more than 10 games or so, you're no better than those teammates, either.

See the problem with allowing people to join queues with a full team is it puts some players at a disadvantage. If they don't have 4 friends who want to play ranked, or are level 30 or whatever the situation, then they are acquiring a random team whereas the enemy is a premade with communication.

I think allowing a maximum of 2 is perfectly fine because it's fair. For everyone complaining, realize that everyone has these same issues, so it's an equal playing field.

I will not go back on this topic..but I see the need to review.. I think I agree with you on one point... I think you should be able to enter a 3 ppl in rankeds.. not duo.. 1 ppl more.. I think that if you got 3 people that know play 3 ppl can carry 1 match.. with 1 afk or troll or fed.. once I can win a game with my 3 friends.. i register on duo.. but my other friend register on same time than me.. and agree.. 1 fed and after afk all match we win.. was the best game of my life so far played.. obviously we take the best roles on team.. ( top adc and jungle) tank jungle tank top.. and adc vayne.. mid fed and after dc.. and suport low experience.. this match is really mark my life in games..but went 3 players (very good players) I only add good players and when anyone failed game I delete... I am very strict on games ..I do not accept mistakes

Why do you all think that the other team can't be just as AFK or stupid as yours? I mean, obviously you are all carry gods and your team is terrible - so why don't you just win it considering it would be a 1v0 statistically.

Typical thick headed response. That was a reaction towards how bad his team was

This ^^^

Now you may be referring to a smaller group than 5 but more than 2 and if so I guess you're just going to have to bite the bullet or put together a 5 man if you want to play rift with a competent team.

I'm sorry but that's just the way it is bud.
