I know ranked games give this info in normal mode, but since that does not exist for dominion, is there some more general way to estimate elo based off public win/loss data for normal games?


I am kind of curious to know whether I am playing with sewer rat tier or closer to the heavens.

I still have people in my games that don't take revive so I guess I'm still in the derp leagues...

Well if people rarely play kassadin then you're at least playing in the upper elo ranges where the gentlemen's rule is active, but then again I haven't been able to play for a over a month so I could be off.

I just estimate mine by comparing my current W/L to my one i had back when you could know your elo. It isn't perfect, by I estimate i'm at least 1900, likely higher.

You can't estimate ELO by wins and loses.

You can estimate if you base it off of your last recorded ELO from lolmatches

He (Riku) was at 1800 when dominion ELO was hidden again

This is basically the case - if you had a reference to your elo beforehand sure, but I myself wasn't playing LoL for a while and by the time I started up again the elo was no longer sent client side.

If you try the usually recommended elo calc, you'll see it can be off by hundreds so unfortunately there's no reliable method. They really want it to be casual, but it would be nice to see elo if just to rate your own performance, as in seeing if you're elo is improving or degrading.

Which begs the question.. why not enable elo for dominion players? We want it back! Why let someone who rarely- if ever- play the mode dictate what happens in our choice of game play? Its bad enough they dont balance champs for dominion...

My point is not all wins and loses generate the same gains and loses. There is just not enough info to calculate just using wins vs loses.
