Everyone complains because they are in "elo hell" because of "bads, idiots, trolls, etc" but honestly the amount of Bronze and Silver player are about 91% of the league community.


Take a gander at this here bar graph.

Everywhere you go there is a ranking and the amount of people below average will always VASTLY outnumber those above average. I mean only 9% of the guys whoplay this game are Gold V and above.

So if you're in bronze V don't complain as if YOU are the only person in the Division who doesn't belong there. Because frankly, you all say the same thing.

Here is a youtube video that you can watch to get a good laugh about "elo hell" as well. Provides some pretty useful tips haha.

Edit: Follow this link to the graph since the link shows a tiny image.
Btw. This isn't made by me either, I just found it interesting and figured more people should see.

I'm as much of a fan of shiny graphs as the next guy, but could you supply a source?

I don't mean to doubt you, but is your source reliable? Although the number seems quite right

Sure thing brother.

That's the source of the graph. Read the below comments to find the equation done to produce the graph and all that jazz.

Also, LolMatches provides their own graph with very much similar results.

Man, Gold looks tough to crack! Silver looks like cake, but then I bet a big portion of that Silver V population is people who got placed there after placement matches and have been unable to fall to Bronze (where they might actually belong).

The people who go on the forums to complain about toxic players are usually the toxic players themselves.
Truth.
