We have elo decay system to address this concern.

I see a lot of negative but guys you should really give the tweeks time to normalize before jumping on the its bad bandwagon.

This is great, and it was definitely a change that was very needed.
With the current Elo system, players that have won a few games early are given a much higher elo, and I think this creates a temporary misplacement of players. Someone that is 5/5 having a higher elo than someone that is 100/90 does not make sense in my opinion.. (this does happen at lower elo depending on whether u won the first few games or not) and this new matchmaking system definitely counteracts that to a certain degree..
perhaps if this causes a problem with smurfs, then implementing this system only among lower elos ( perhaps below 1500) may also be a solution.. if ur at an elo higher than that, i think chances are much higher that u deserve to be up there..
anyway, i think this is a great change, and it will help a lot of good players who are stuck in elo hell. Thank you riot

It's trash. I've been matched with nothing but trolls since the MM change, gotten so angry i got banned for raging.

Then the last 4 days i STILL haven't won a single game OR had a single game without people INTENTIONALLY trolling in it.

Fix it now. Games are meant to be enjoyed by default; They're in the entertainment category.
Raging 100% of my games since MM patch is NOT ENTERTAINING.

Seriously, this new system is terrible. I feel like every team I am playing with is just straight up new. I have 700 normal wins and somewhere upwards of 400 ranked. Why am I being matched with people who seem like they just got done playing with bots?

My last game in a group of 4 took over 5 minutes to queue. We're not particularly high elo, but we had a range of elos and wins.
