Why am I punished in ARAM for owning 90 champions?

I really don't care what champion I get, as long as it isn't Sion (I quit every time), but team comps can be kind of annoying.

I roll Yi a lot too and usually give it away because I don't like the champion.

You're not punished for owning 90 champions, you're being punished for not knowing how to use them.
Like the lad up here who actually believes Sion isn't awesome in aram.

.

The more champions the better.


And I have no problem with smurfs, they suck at the game, that's why they create new accounts, to make up for their terribleness.
They still lose when they face me. Because I know what I'm doing and they don't.

That would be true if all champions had an equal performance level in ARAM. There are many champions and compositions that no matter what just won't perform as well as the other in equally skilled hands.

As it stands there are more advantages to creating a roster with just the top tier ARAM champions than there are to owning a great many of the total champion pool.

The only real solution is to make brackets for players who own roughly the same number of champions.


I feel this is an awesome idea for Riot to test out. It would roughly match skill (as time played) as well. Smurfs would only get matched with total scrubs, and they would have to deal with new players being on their team.

Players with more than half the champs suffer a significant disadvantage in "random picks." It's just obvious.

ARAM is fun when you have random champs fighting. Not Reroll for Jayce Nidalee Soraka Sona Fiddlesticks.

^ I would and have just AFKd through entire ARAMs because of teams like this. 11 min win so fun.

Cool, but what about those new players, who would be matched vs smurfs? They would hate aram very quickly.

There is still elo. There is still summoner level bias for matchmaking.

I don't know if adding another check into matchmaking on top of everything else is the greatest idea but it would probably be better than the situation we have currently.

The low level match maker is a joke.

Since I inflated my mmr with a win streak (still pre 30 on this account) the match maker has decided to throw level 30s at me. They aren't skilled, but having ~25-50% more base stats is just annoying.

I bring this up because typically the other 4 people on my team are of a lower level / skill. Having to play against 30s just ruins the match for them.
