I think you guys need to address this ASAP

Over the last week or so since the changes I've just seen the game go downhill so fast...

....so much that I am not even doing games with other people and have just switched to AI games due to the bad play, trolling, general imbalances in the matchmaking games, etc.

I don't find games fun where one side just destroys the other because you get paired with 1-2 players that aren't close to your skill level and they get dominated and it snowballs the game...even though you've done your job or held your lane in a draw.

There is something 'fundamentally' wrong with the system...it's obvious.

I have a question on the ranked queue portion. I've had a pretty good experience with the normal queue. but it tends to work best when i'm with people near my own skill level. I have two roommates who have nowhere near the experience/skill I do. It's fun to play with them, but we almost always lose our matches because they are constantly outclassed due to my higher ELO/experience. not a big deal, just something we have to deal with. anyway...

Because the ranked queue games resets every season, does the MMing algorithm currently take into account Total number of games? or just games this season? Sorry if this has already been answered but I didn't see it.

I've mainly been playing ranked between 8-5pm PST. and i've been seeing a lot of all border teams vs no border teams. typically the team with borders is winning. if it's more spread out (IE, some borders on both teams) the match is a lot more even. I've also noticed that 'no border' teams tend to 'throw games' more often.

I'm over these changes, i have been on some occasions waiting up to 3 minutes for a queue, i can only imagine what it's like for higher rating players.
I play normals to get in game quickly and have fun regardless of mine or the opponents skill level.

RiotKiddington,

I posted a few pages ago without a reply, but I didn't include any specifics. I went through the LOL Recorder and roughly tallied the number of wins losses before and after the match making change.

Between January 1st - January 15th I played 118 games
I won 67, lost 51 for a 43% loss rate

Between January 17th - January 27th I played 114 games
I won 49, lost 65 for a 57% loss rate

I "felt" like I was losing significantly more, it wasn't as bad as I thought but still pretty significant. My average queue times was always less than 2 minutes, but now my average is between 3 to 5 minutes.

I'm not really concerned with the queue time, but the QUALITY of the matches have been very poor. It doesn't seem like the matchmaker is even trying to find quality matches after you been in queue for 3+ minutes.

You can look into my match history for confirmation. I have stopped playing my main character; I'm waiting for the M.M. to be improved.

Thank you for your reply,

-Kampfybewts
