Thank you riot, This looks like a great system. I think people are going to like it once it is implemented.

This system seems to capture more 'variance' in player performance -- if I play a ton and eventually go up to another tier, I'm 'safe'. What's to keep a player 'trying hard' when they've just hit a new tier?

At that point, I could be a fairly below average player who 'lucked' into a higher tier. And once a player is there, there's a serious risk of 'win trading' if you can't lose your tiers. I'll lose my next 20 ranked games if I'm going to stay at diamond league, then you lose your next 20 once you hit diamond league, and we can 'win trade' up to Challenger! What keeps this from happening?

It is simply a step sideways. Doesn't really address the core issues with ranked and riot is still trying to address the queue dodging by giving us disincentives which is a horrible model. Rather than do the real work and figure out why we dodge queues and look into how they could remedy that.

Sounds exciting. Yet, the offering of a more approachable communication between summoners will make things much easier

I believe it's essential that Riot offers the option of "email offline user" or "ranked team broadcast" for team captains so they can schedule for matches and demand their team members to be online at a certain time

I hope this can offered soon.

The fact that there are limited preventative measures taken by the game to ensure an enjoyable experience for the majority of players involved prior to the match beginning engenders a captive group, bowing to the will of the disruptive. Until a solution in champion selection allows a team to engage one another for the good of the group in order to inoculate themselves from a perceived threat, it is disingenuous to state that queue dodges are too high simply because the micromanagement of a few.
