I considered this in the past but didn't end up doing it for several reasons:

1- When you first start playing aram, the first 50ish games are complete stomps since I don't get matched against players in my own mmr, so there's nothing to learn from or gain in those games.

2- Once those 50ish games are played and managed to keep a high winrate, I go back to hour long queues just so they queue tries to gather as many players as possible that are around the same mmr as me (usually aram smurfs). The problem with this process is that it takes about as much time to find a game as if I would queue on my main.

3- THEN after I go against other smurfs and still managed to keep a high winrate around lvl 15, this is where my queues just stop popping. GrosPigeon once mentioned in another thread than I once had a 9 hour long queue on my EUW smurf. He didn't lie. I want to play but I just can't; my queues don't pop.

The only solution against this would be to dumb me down and purposely lose my games to maintain a winrate of 50-60% while staying in the same mmr. But even so I doubt people would like watching me when I'm not trying my best since this is for educational purposes. I'll try to figure something out.

Have you tried doing it completely solo before? Maybe it would be more of a challenge than what you just described. I understand how you'd find those games boring, but most people are not at your MMR, and should be interested in seeing someone carry games at their MMR. Some suggestions to "dumb yourself down": 1. Queue solo; 2. Not buy the good champions; 3. Not dodge when your team comp is awful (not saying you did that before, just in case you once did)

Yeah when I did smurf I did so solo most of the time. Only started queue'ing up with friends when my queues would not pop ever.

I like the "not buying good champions" idea. Maybe just using free weeks? However it's not like I'd be able to buy a lot of champions anyways since it takes forever to unlock stuff without spending rp.

You know what? I will follow your advice. I'll start over from scratch, stream it and see how it goes. I'll make an account, lvl it up to lvl 6 and let you guys know.

Alright here is the deal:

I didn't want to start a brand new account from level 1 since I would be way higher mmr than 1200 by the time I reached level 30. So I am using a very old account of mine that has a mmr of 1130 that I will use to slowly climb up the elo ladder and go through what you guys would normally go through. This account has a whole bunch of bad champions and bad runes, so it's not tailored towards aram games at all. I will be solely solo queue'ing and since it's a level 30 account with almost 0 aram games, it's a fresh start.

I will be streaming the games and also help educate my viewers on what's going on and how to deal with certain situations. Once the stream is over, I will save and make a playlist of the videos I have created while streaming in order to have them archived for your viewing pleasure if you missed it/want to re-watch them.

I edited the first post to let people know of my intent.

I am starting the stream now.
