MUST... KEEP... GOING...

QUEUES... SO... LONG...

Attachment 383384

My journey from 2500 to 2600 was quite rocky. Most of the rating gain was done in solo/duo and most of the rating loss happened in premades.

As I went through the 2500 range I went ahead and logged a bunch of statistics about it:

======
Ratings:
======

Average queue time for solo blind pick: ~70 minutes.
Average queue time for premade blind pick: ~25 minutes.
Average queue time for solo draft mode: ~130 minutes.
Average queue time for premade draft mode: ~45 minutes.

Average rating change on win when solo vs solo: 4
Average rating change on loss when solo vs solo: 7
Average rating change on win when solo vs premade: 8
Average rating change on loss when solo vs premade: 6

Average rating change on win when premade vs solo: 2
Average rating change on loss when premade vs solo: 34
Average rating change on win when premade vs premade: 7
Average rating change on loss when premade vs premade: 12

Most frequently seen rating range for others in solo queue: 2100-2200

Minimum rating gain possible from one match: 0

=====
Ratios:
=====

About 50% of games are played on even matchup: i.e. an equal amount of solo and premade people on both teams. This can get skewed depending on the time of day.

In the 2500 range, to break even in rating changes, you need to:

(Solo) Win 7 games for every 4 losses in equal matchups. (At least 64% of matches must be wins)
(Solo) Win 3 games for every 4 losses in disadvantagous matchups. (At least 43% of matches must be wins)
(Premade) Win 12 games for every 7 losses in equal matchups. (At least 63% of matches must be wins)
(Premade) Win 17 games for every 1 loss in advantagous matchups. (At least 94% of matches must be wins)

Ratings conclusion:

If you are truly a skilled/supportive/positive player, you will gain rating most rapidly by solo and duo queue, and this will continue to be true until your queue times get too long. At which point, you should switch to trio queue if possible to balance rating change with queue times.

It is a lot more important to be a supportive and positive player than a skilled one. If you lack "dem skillz," all you need to do is delegate carry roles to others and be content with playing tank, disruptor, and support champions that allow your carries to succeed. Start with a small selection of champions and focus on getting really good with them before moving to others.

=====
Other:
=====

Five most frequently seen summoner spells (from most common): Exhaust, Revive, Garrison, Ignite, Heal.

Ten most frequently seen bans (from most common): Rammus, Kassadin, Yorick, Urgot, Warwick, Wukong, Ryze, Poppy, Jax, Udyr.

Three most frequently seen champions in blind pick: Kassadin, Warwick, Ryze.
Three most frequently seen champions in draft mode: Jax, Warwick, Ryze.
Honorable mention: Postpatch Shen.

Number of times I fought my own team in solo queue when in the 2500 range: 14 (10 were wins)

We get it. You are good at dominion.

Funny you wrote all this stuff about ELO gains, pretending to care, because we all know that in the end, all you really aim for is getting people to tell you how amazing you are.

As if being 2600 ELO in dominion meant something when there's only like 3 platinums playing it.

Congrats! I tried to stop your juggernaut, but I only slowed it down.

How do you know your ELO? I mean is there a way to see it somewhere? All I know is that you can see a ranked rating pretty easy.
