: Ranked algorithm
In the video there's also proof.. He was diamond elo he physically dodged ques when put with a team with garbage win rate. waited 3 days and still got put with low % win rate players.. How do you improve when LoL are actually creating a system that forces you to play more games due the algorithm they have implemented rather than just match you with players in the same league?

: I suggest it many times and they all talk to me like im a %%%%%%. Even Forg1ven suggest it cuz this system is garbage. It doesnt mix players based on skill.
Couldn't agree more

: But it is. If you consistently perform better than your lane opponent and contribute towards objectives more than your lane opponent then you will win more games than you lose.
But that's the whole point. You dominate lane try and split push with your huge advantage why your team take objectives or group and run around as 5. No one on my recent teams do either how do you win with such a huge advantage when you contest objectives on your own?

: There is a certain amount of "you just have to play enough games" (for them to become statistically significant). However, if you have played a lot of games (50-100) and have not been promoted at all then you are probably where you belong. Things like trolls, afk, toxic players all balance out over time/higher number of games (the enemy team gets just as many as you do on your own team) - what really influences your division in the long run is your own performance.
I understand what your talking about but let me put it into perspective. I was top lane as Jax. I literally dominated top lane I went 5/0.. I end up 13/6 and lost the game.. Another instance I was Leblanc mid lane I was 7/0 We ended up losing the game. I was Darius top lane 3/0 took first turret had double farm what happened.. Lost the game. There are too many accounts of this happening I continuously set a consistent pace of winning my lanes (it sounds cliché) 9 time out of 10. This isn't due to lack of skill but more to do with you can not win 1/5 unless your 20/0 at 20minutes. I know people say 'don't blame your team' but this is a team %%%%ing game and its so sad to witness riot putting a algorithm that if you hit over 50% win rate your more than likely going to be put with worse players.. rather than just match your ELO. You even said they generally try and keep you at 50%? That doesn't determine skill. Even the best players in the world who made smurfs lost plat games.

: It’s not “rigged”. The match making system tries to give you a 50% win rate. If it cannot do that using players in your current elo then you will climb. I’m over simplifying it a bit, we know there’s more to it but Riot does not release a lot of public information about match making. But this much appears to be obvious. So yes if you win a lot of games in a row then your games will start to get harder. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

Of course I understand games get harder the more you win. But as you can see I was silver 1 90LP near promo stage with high win rate. As soon as I was about to hit promos my LoL ranked games became trolled and was continuously put with feeders in all my games and flamers. The toxicity is on another scale. I would of only gone to gold through silver so the skill level is bar none because gold and silver there is very little skill difference in my experience. High elo players have said I do not belong in the elo im stuck in. I just think there is more to it than meets the eye.
