But in all seriousness, it's good to know Riot is actively addressing this issue, so thanks.

Thats not the problem the problem is new players to the gaem offten uninstall after a few days of play because high elo players will make smurfs then go play these level 1, 2, 3 smurfs and scream and yell and curse out new players to the point where they uninstall the game for good.

Thats what I ment by my other statement.

I agree people will eventually reach thier true ELO over many games that wasnt my point.

Why are the accounts of the people who did the actually boosting also made ineligible for season 2 rewards? That makes no sense

(To Clarify: The people who did the boosting should also be ineligible)

The accounts that were being boosted should have an ELO penalty in the beginning of Season 3 as well.
