Regarding how to change the amount of ELO you gain or lose from a win/loss, I don't know of a reason to change that. But someone mentioned in an earlier post to use the tribunal more in helping with situations where you had a member of a team do something that virtually guaranteed the outcome of the game like leaving or feeding. I think first, a method for keeping these folks from getting into the game in the first place is important. In que so often there is the one player who can't cooperate, insists on his lane and attempts to bully. I know that many people have said that a kicking option would be abused but think that if a 4-1 vote passes, the kickers get a 5 minute penalty and the kicked gets time penalty based on how many times they have been kicked. This would also require a que similar to WOW where you can say before you get into a game what rolls you were interested or capable of playing.
Once in the game, when you have a feeder or a leaver, an elo refund would be easy to implement. If the violating player is reported for an offence that effected change on the outcome of the game i.e. leaving, feeding, or assisting and is punished, the a portion of the ELO should be refunded to the loosing team. The winners keep there's.
Just some suggestions, I unlike many of the players at my elo (about 1065 as of this writing) feel that I am close to the score I should be at but am convinced that my score would be different if several of my losses were reversed because the predominant reason for the loss was a toxic player. I can happily accept a lower elo, I am no pro, but it would make the game so much more enjoyable if we had a system to deal with those who try to ruin it.
as much as I want to not be a low elo scrub, I understand that elo has to be a zero-sum, harsh and unforgiving system in order to mean anything.
if everyone can get to 1850 elo just by simply not trolling, not afking, and buying 5 wards each game,
then getting to plat rank becomes a meaningless achievement that anyone and their 5 year old brother can get.
I want to be a gold player one day, because I actually improved, not because they set the bar lower.
