Since people no longer have extremely small ranked LP gains, couldn't a person who was able to carry bronze theoretically duo queue with a bronze 5 or bronze 4, gain 20 lp per win, and get to really high leagues even though their MMR is really low?

Edit: I know someone who did this, their MMR is extremely low (-30 lp per loss) but they got to Gold 5 by duo queuing with a bronze 4.

2nd edit: That bronze 4 person can deliberately lose ranked games to stay in bronze 4 or 5 so that the gold player plays against low silver players. That bronze 4 or 5 player is not really bronze 4 or bronze 5 level, they are just there to allow the gold person's league to get high.

Not really.

The system will massively stack the odds if they do it enough.


When duo'd with a bronze 5 you don't play vs bronze level players, they are brought up much closer to the main accounts rating and their ELO is only increased based on the predicted outcome of the game.

A person who can carry a bronze 5 player against mid silvers deserves to be in gold. A player who can carry a bronze 5 player against mid golds deserves to be in plat. A player who can carry a bronze 5 player against plats deserves to be in diamond.
