I said "I heard" "might" "may" and "I do not have any Riot confirmation on this". That means DO NOT ASSUME IT TO BE TRUE.

You could be experiencing Observational Bias or Confirmation Bias or a few other biases.

I don't see Riot ever admitting this either. It would hurt them too much. If players knew 100% that they would get people much lower than their ELO in a game mode that depends on every single player for teamwork to win. Less people would play. Even less than are now.

Noticed a huge increase in premades. Most of the time prepatch if I was near last pick it was because of a premade. Otherwise I was 1-2 pick. Most games I play now I'm near last pick. I do ask if a premade during champ selection. Majority of the time it is.

I know, I could be. But, believe you me, I've talked to many, many people about this. Many players I've talked to in my bracket report experiencing similar things, although since they're superawesome carry players they zoom right past me. All I ask is that you take a look to see if anything's messed up or went wrong last patch. If matchmaking is permanently like this, then I'm sticking exclusively to premades, which are awesome anyway.

Junior members who don't know WTF they're talking about, reporting for duty!


So what makes a Junior member? that amount of posts or play time.

Kind of wrong to randomly hate on "Junior Members"

We obviously don't have hard data on the subject, but it's clear when level 17s are matched with top .1% players that something has changed.

I've seen plenty of players with .500 or negative W/L ratios in my games, and, let's be real here, you're not going to maintain above 2000 ELO with a negative W/L. They're probably in the 1200-1500 range at best.

It is the duty of Senior Members to sit on their porch and yell at Junior Members about staying off their lawns.

P.S. One does not simply walk onto my lawn.

Tho the reason appears to be "Normal means no visible Elo" - which potentially makes a bit more sense on other maps with seperate ranked queues xP
