does anyone know the exact numbers?
I'm a college student and recently started playing Ranked games... and I don't want to lose ELO just because i was too busy for a week.

SO

How long do you have to be idle from a certain type of Ranked before your ELO decays?
How much does it decay when it does go down?
Is the amount of decay over time a constant?

thanks in advance.

EDIT: just added the quote from Zileas. DopeHimself found the thread for me.

if you are in the top 100, you lose 25 elo every 2 weeks. I was at 1787 elo, went afk for like 2-3 months, came back, elo was at 1652

@Sequence

thanks for the response
do you know whether this applies to other ELO ranges?

Elo decay doesn't affect people under 1400 Elo (or 1500, It's around that range). The decay only starts

if you haven't played a game in 2 weeks (so, you'd be able to log in, play one game, and then ignore it

again)

I can confirm its already happening when you are 1500.

I can also confirm that if you are low 1400 you can lose elo and drop you to 1390s.

If only search function worked (sadface)

Lima Beans has posted the conditions for Elo Decay some time near the start of season 1. I don't play ranked unless my premade is on (and we'd rather raid than play ranked )

hopefully some more concrete info will be here when I get back.
does anyone know if a Riot staff member has ever discussed this or fully explained how the elo decay works?
