Promotional Series is a joke.

I am 0-5 in my promotional series. Meaning I have been through 2 best of threes and am on my third. Every game when I am in the promotional series have been horrible. Every team I get doesn't perform. These are the kinds of teams I get in my promotional matches.

The games have not even been remotely close and it's starting to piss me off. I feel like the matchmaking system is stacking the odds against me when I am in the promotional series. When here I thought the promotional series was going to be even matches. I guess I was pretty dumb from thinking that.

Five promotional games in a row? I think that's more than bad luck. This will be my sixth promotional match as I'm currently in champion select. If the score ends up just like the last one, I'm going to assume that matchmaking stacks the odds against you during promotional matches.

Has nothing to do with the pressure. I handled Garen pretty well as Nasus. He killed me once in lane, thanks to a Vi gank, and I killed him once in lane. We pretty much went even in lane. Every other lane on my team however lost pretty bad.

I know exactly how you feel, I've lost eight in a row with scores just as lopsided. None of these games feel even to me, I don't think my team has gotten first blood in a single game. Not sure what to think

I just think they have to many tiers. Its hard as a tank main to carry imo, I can multiply my teams ability but zero multiplied is still zero.

Anyway... I'm less than 20 matches in the new system and I am not sure how long its going to take to get to last seasons point and then beyond.

I looked at the image. You played Nasus. Your score was 1/2/1, 8.1k gold. Riven, from the enemy team, was 12/1/3 with 12.3k gold. When the game ended she had 4.2k more gold than you did.

Your first mistake was picking Nasus. Why did you do this? Nasus has no gap closer and lacks mobility. He simply isn't competitive in solo queue because solo queue is all about running around and preying off the weak champs on the enemy team. You do know how to identify the weak champs, right?

Riven clearly did. You want to blame your teammates but Riven outplayed you. She was able to use her mobility to prey off of your team and win. Why did you think she deserved a loss that game and you deserved a win?
