Literally all they did was add "leagues" and hide our elo. That is it. nothing more.

It's just a facade, an illusion of a different scene, when it is the exact same thing.

The new system makes bullying summoners based on their ELO much harder, and actually gives incentives to players who advance. Same system, but with less feelings of doubt, insecurity, and anger

You're right, it's just a fancy skin. Clever you for spotting that out.

...it's governed by nothing more than a cheap skin over a dated system, easily described by these two points in the S3 FAQ:





In layman's terms:

We don't have achievements to provide longevity with our current model, so, here's some rose-coloured glasses!

Matchmaking never changed; the queues are exactly the same; these points are just a cover-up for the old ELO system graded by fancy metals rather than big numbers.

-1 respect.



I dunno man, for some odd reason, I'm getting super inconsistent games. Triple Plats in one game, silver border/noborder in the next. Gold Tier1s in one game, Silver tier1 after. It's super strange.
