more incentive to win doesn't help. trolls gonna troll.

People want to win anyway so they try there best and either win or loose.

Tbh I don't see why elo so vary, you should get X for a win no matter who against and loose X (being the same) for a loss... If you win more then lose you go up (simple math right?) if you lose more then win you go down! I know its incredible but you elo would change directly based on your W/L ratio.

The current elo system tries to determine that based off of the average "skill" of players on each team, but previously was pretty flawed, I guess we will see if that is still the case or not.

Yes a lot of people are... Riot already made the new system shifted so that former Low tier gold got silver 1... If they wanted people to be overqualified they would have to put players down even further in divisions and tiers... Then people would gain more then lose. But imagine the rage of a former 1600 being put into silver 1
