KDA is a horrible way to determine league points.

That looks like shorthand for a way to record stats...Just saying.

Not a way to gain more league points. Just like the current system has stat tracking.

Ur tottaly wrong. Even supoort can be beneficiated b this sytem asit also takes assits into account. Good players havegood KDA bad ones have a bad ratio, its simple.
There are a bunch of times where you can die without getting any assists and still win the fight for your team. If you're playing a tank and the entire enemy teams burns all their AoE ults on you for example. The enemy team no longer has a strong fighting potential, and your team can clean them up.

Ever realized the possibility that the line below it is not answering the "question" posed by the line above it and they're just randomly ordered? Read the whole spoiler section of the announcement.. It's just a coincidence.

In the spoilers:

rswKDA:"KDA"
Each one of those strings are seperate entities and do not correlate to each other.

That's like me saying that I have a weighted die that lands on 6 85% of the time and you saying that there are 6 faces of the die.
It's also like the OP saying stuff from a week ago on the PBE isn't subject to change and will 100% be implemented into the ranked system.

OK

Play champions with execute spells and resets.

As if they were not OP enough as it is.

Elise, Kah'Zix, Darius are now in their own tier.

I really hope that's the case, but I'm still going to say KDA is a horrible way to determine league points.

Play supp properly and you will have enough assists this shouldn't be an issue. Only an issue for kids with bad KDA which honestly, while stats don't mean everything, if your KDA is bad on everyone you're bad sorry.

lhWhatDeterminesHowManyLeaguePointsIGainFromWinnin gAMatchDesc:"There are numerous factors, with the two major ones being the following:

1. The difficulty of the match. If matchmaking considered your opponents to be favored, you will gain more LP than normal, and less LP if the reverse is true.


2. The relative MMRs of the people you are playing with and against. If you are playing with people who are generally higher in the standings than you are, you will gain LP more quickly (and lose it more slowly from a loss) so that you will generally trend upwards even with a 50/50 record.

"


OK I found it, thankfully I was misreading. In my defense riot is hiding Elo because people were complaining, and people have been complaining about KDA not representing elo for a long time.
