It's still the same elo system except you now get to see your progress much easier and have fun best of 3 matches to determine if you move up brackets.


The actual 'who goes where' is very similar to before though. Your enemy has higher chances of having bad players than you do so take advantage of it and win the game by carrying your team (through both leadership and personal skill)

Actually, the players you've been running into have been around for a while. It's not a fresh *today* thing. However, you are going to see an increase in problematic matchups since there are going to be placements going on. I'd say it's rather similar to what goes on whenever they do the elo resets each season.

Leagues have literally nothing to do with matchmaking. You arent any more likely to be matched with them than anyone else

if you actually can read you can see that riot decreased the amount of players you get grouped wiht so you can get rivalriesd which means you are constantly grouped with the same people therefor matchmaking has been greatly affecteed by riot choosing who your being grouped agisnt instead of a wide range of people like bnefore

Just to clear all of this up:

Will I only be matched against opponents in my league?
No. Matchmaking isn’t affected by your league, and you’ll still be competing against all opponents of your skill level in the League of Legends community. Your league measures your progress against a set of opponents of similar skill level, but doesn’t restrict competition solely to those players.

There you go.
