MM still broken. Just got out of a game where it was over before the 15 minute mark.

That has nothing to do with matchmaking. One lane has a bad game and gives up two or three early kills its GG if the opposition knows how to press that advantage properly. That's in a ELO balanced game anyways. If for instance one lane does ****ty but your other lanes are higher ELO then obviously there's less of a chance for a snowball because they'll probably avoid getting ganked by fed lane with wards and such.

Average on their team was around 1350 with one unranked guy and one guy 1600.

I gained 6 whole elo. What's the point of even setting up a game like that? Risk not worth the reward.


Well, you gaining 6 Elo is working as intended-assuming your team was much higher overall.

As for why that happened... do you know what percent of the community is actually at the 1600 mark? Probably well under 5%, judging by the last time I checked the ladder.

Matchmaking has to eventually pair you...

Fix...I don't know why you are taking Riot on their word the moment anything relatively related to matchmaking comes out. Until AT LEAST you never play with anyone outside of 75 points from your Elo and have some even games, I won't believe a word they say about it.

But that's the thing. It wasn't.

Exactly it seems like everytime they "fix it" they actually break it even more.

You can't fix broken glass with a hammer riot.
