Haven't played this game for basically 3+ years

Yet my elo is still around gold level in ranked, guess Riot wants ppl who return to their game to lose a shit ton of games and make the other players suffer as a result. Why do we not lose significantly more ELO when we're not playing the game for over a year? Am I expected to make a new account and just ditch my account worth thousands of hours?
