Whatever the numbers would need to be.
A lvl 30 player with....let-me-toot-my-own-horn-here-a-bit...+110 wins on close to 2k dom games played should not be matched with sub lvl 30's with less than a dozen dom wins. Before you think I'm exaggerating, I'm not, and it happens a lot, too ****ing much.
Those are partial premades you are being placed into.

the lol was directed at the fact that a summoner out there thinks my name is better with more As and fewer Gs

Yeah that happened to me in my 6 hour draft queue that never popped.... It's like Riot was embarrassed with themselves...

I can't see how that is a legit argument for matching players so obviously not on the same skill level. As well as the fact that it happens when I duo queue with valv who has an even greater +win set than I do, and is sitting on 3k+ dom games.

Its not the fact that its premades vs non-premades, the system is clearly saying, "hey, we have two "high elo" players here, we can put a couple of idiots on their team as long as we do the same for the other team. That way its balanced" And what you end up with is 4-5 players that know what they are doing and a game half full of total idiots, and I doubt its fun for anyone, I'm being dragged down and the newer players are being **** on by the 1.5k wins kassdin/jayce/[enter OP champ here]. I fail to see how this is justified to (no offense) help out an incredibly small percentage of the pop.
As I said before, they should have created a breakpoints in the search breadth or some other stepped solution instead of screwing the whole thing for almost everyone else.

Ah, how I wish we could see our rankings again.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could at least see a month-to-month chart of our stats?
