With / against the same people as before. This new league thing changes nothing about matchmaking at all, you still have your elo (just no more visible), you still get matched by elo. This new system is nothing but a graphic interface built on top of your elo rating, which more rewarding looking ladders and badges. There are only 2 differences:
- Hitting new tier (silver->gold->plat etc) needs you to win 2/3 and 3/5 respectively
- Falling into lower tier is no longer possible like with elo, however your hidden elo will still drop even if your badge doesn't. Basically that could mean you can be able to hit Diamond, then lose 100 games on purpose and still be in the Diamond league, but you will be in elo hell and ranked last spot #250 on your league

Hello, my dilemma would be that i am not gold elo now. During the preseason i was gold, and had 1500 current elo, and 1520 top elo. I was reading the facts about the new elo system and i assumed i would be gold during the actual season 3. I logged on today to find out I'm not gold anymore! This is kind of irritating because i assumed I'd be gold and I am kind of disappointed. The actual elo it takes to achieve tiers was raised i assume, but i am kind of confused about all of this. Please explain!! =/

All of my friends that i play with in ranked, normals and even in my ranked team got placed in "Diana's Dervish" except for me in "Kha'Zix's Harbingers". I am a sad panda

I know i can still play with them i would've just liked to be able to view my rating against theirs in the ladder..

Its a simple fix actually make a best 2/3 series to keep people from dropping division it gives them a warning, rather then just being dropped like that, and spurns a more competitive edge to have the chance to stay within the higher division. Simply making it 10 times harder to advance then be demoted does little for making players happy, they like to win, as do most gamer like my self XD. But my point is that I will win some and lose some win 2 in a row then ill lose 3 in row and all of sudden drop a division now I am forced to try and go 5-0 just to be eligible for promotion so in actuality you need to go on a run like 7-1 to advance but only need a record of like 3-4 to drop. This seems a little one sided
