Seriously. I don't understand how being marginally successful at a computer game can lead to such ******tery.

Truth. Arguing about the elo that was earned last season is stupid. If they're being matched up to you, they're at your level (or duoing).

Diamond V, Platinum III on his team.
They queued up with someone that wasn't ranked probably, thus leading to them being paired with him.
Everyone on my team was bordered, silver (2 of us) was the lowest.

because, dunno if you noticed, but elo boosting was a thing.

Go look him up on LoLking. Check out his latest game (J4 Jungle - Defeat). Then extend the match and look up each of the people on the enemy team (you can just right click + Open in new tab). Of his 5 opponents, only two were remotely close to him (still about a full Division above him). Two of his opponents had a 1.7k and 1.9k LoLking rating. The 1.9k dude is currently Plat III

Those are CURRENT ratings, not just the load screen borders from last season.

Pretty messed up.

Their MMR could also be higher - rather than everyone else having a lower MMR.

Wonder if OP thought of that?

I'm a decent player when I'm supporting and my ISP isn't acting up. I'm definitely a silver jungler, especially with J4.

I was Gold 1 and I have been consistently matched with Plat 1 and Diamond V players. This made my promotion series into a rather difficult affair. On the bright side, I gain 25-32 lp per win. This might be a case where either their MMR has dropped, or your MMR is just higher.

Indeed. I skipped a division on my last win streak in ranked, and I'm consistently queued with golds. But that doesn't change the fact that I have a silver border, which means I make silver ganks and lose dragon/baron with my silver smiting.

Try your best! also Diamond shouldn't yell at Silver but instead give some tips on how to help them improve. Yelling doesn't solve anything but giving them tips does improve their game in the future.
