I would love a Rioter to drop by this thread and give the exact numbers, just to see how close you really are (I'm going to guess very).

This really needs to be balanced out to at least even at the lowest tiers for the league play to really continue to work correctly, the lowest tier cannot be this big in a competitive game.

Even Starcraft II has a lower rate for bronze and they have one more Tier than we do:

They do it because as you get to the higher elos, the skillgap between the top 1 to 3 percent can be as large as say... the top 30 to 60 percent, so ultimately they are balancing based on skillgap not player percentages. Although you are right, they probably should spread out the bottom two tiers a bit since it is kind of lame for 90% of the ranked playerbase to be in them. (It's kind of fixed with divisions but still dumb)

I say keep Gold/Plat/Diamond the way it is, however maybe take Bronze/Silver and split it up into two more leagues? Thus making Insert League/Bronze/Insert League/Silver or whichever order you want then Gold/Plat/Diamond.

keep in mind, everyone with division 5, at 0 LP will be ranked the same
so you say theres "4680 players" in diamond, when theres really a little bit more, because everyone with diamond 5, 0 LP will be "rank 4860"

just something to keep in mind



example:
player 1: 2000 elo
player 2: 2000 elo
player 3: 1000 elo

lolsummoners will rank:
1. player 1
1. player 1
3. player 3


No, actually that's not correct in this case, as you assume I'm just looking at the bottom and top ranks for each division.

In reality, I found the exact pages each division started and ended, then multiplied by 20 players per page.

This is the actual text file I compiled with all the page numbers for the divisions.

I missed it, is this for all servers?

And I'm assuming this is just solo/duo queue?

Just solo/duo, and just NA.
I could provide the numbers for EUW/EUNE.

fyi, of the 933,439 players in our database, 187,967 haven't played ranked in a month or more.

"needs to be balanced out?" no...

if youre not good enough to move up a tier, then you shouldnt move up. players in diamond and platinum tiers really are that much better than bronze players. we shouldnt award players for "trying". americans need to man up... winners win and losers lose. its like their education system, over 1 million kids graduate high school with below basic level reading skills.

this is a game. youre not entitled to anything!
