Resetting elo for season 2 was a silly idea. It merely created elo hell all over again for some of the people that managed to finally escape.

Besides that, elo really ought to be tied to normal elo.

Just be good. If you're playing with bad players its because you are bad.

Yup, I'm tired of getting queued up with players who AFK. The game should come with a pause and substitute feature. Someone goes afk, game pauses while it looks for a sub.

placement matches, like sc2 does, that way if someone is really good (as most people say they are) they are just placed into gold/plat to begin with and then ya, all is well, also trolls and afks will sit low and stay low.

also, make the placement based on how you personally do in each game, not solely on win or lose

What do you propose is a good system though? Wins? I have 300 wins, but I'm consistently better than guys with twice that number. Ratio? I know guys who are good players who screw around a lot in normal games and hence have a poor ratio. Plus, are you going to penalize/reward people for their performance in normals. Ranked is supposed to be a whole new game. You need a fresh baseline to start from.

The system does work itself out over time, but it does take a lot of time and you have to play a lot of games. If you're consistently better than the other guys at your elo, you will raise in elo, even if its slowly.

They should make a preview before a game starts saying "Are you sure you will play this match?" If not please leave the Que so that people do not enter ELO hell, Thank you

You have 300 wins? Ok, here, play with this guys with THE SAME WINS. People come and say, "If you're playing with bad players, its because you're bad", it doesnt make ANY sense, its like i said, u cant win alone, im not asking for always win, im asking for GOOD players, when you're in this elo, you CAN'T get out, i have seen so many good players there too, but they cant get out.
I'm getting so many "trolls", they pick what they want, feed, and blame eachother, acting like kids, they prob are,but... w/e.

Wins mean absolutely nothing. In normal games I have almost 400 wins and I am normally paired with people who have around 1000 or more wins. If wins meant everything I would lose every single game. I usually win more often than lose because I am better than my opponents....who have 1000+ wins while I have just under 400.

So again, why would being paired with someone who has the same number of wins as you help with anything? If it doesn't help in normal games it won't do anything in ranked games.
