You are also significantly reducing your chance of winning the game. Tilting your own team mates is a sure way to reduce your win rate.

: Riot pulling another sneaky one, seriously?
> it's clear that Riot can get away with anything in their updates uhh they kind of own the game.
: But they are a big company, it's like they made the anti-cheat in a garage or something then. I don't have problems, but it's absurd to get those problems because of overlay from Nvidia and Geforce and other official stuff.
They are not having problems on NA servers. I suspect they whitelisted US versions of software and not local/international variants.
: Well, that should not happen in the first place. But it might just be from the new update? Who knows.
It's the new anti-cheat. It's obviously bugged since this patch - Riot said a while ago there might be teething problems with some third party software that provide in-game overlays; like discord and Nvidia Geforce exp.
: We were using discord and got kicked and same time. We did reboot all our pcs/laptops and opened only league, yet got same problem, and screen even froze
What about Nvidia GeforceExperience (which would run at start up)? .. or similar for other card makers.

: Every single server has been hit by the disconnects but NA
More likely there is a localization bug. US version(s) of some software have been whitelisted but not global variants.

Are you guys using discord and/or Nvidia software? Try playing with those closed.

: I wouldn't say pay to win but aye good idea still
Yeah, pay to win probably a bit of an exaggeration but it's still gaining a competitive advantage by purchasing something.

: Riot doesn't condone smurfing, so I doubt they're going to make changes that makes the life of smurfers easier. --- Placements work differently in season9 than they have in previous seasons. Now you'll see a provisional rank after your first placement game, which nobody else can see, and wins will give you boosted LP gains. So the rank you see during your placement games isn't your actual rank.
They don't forbid it either. And no, currently it doesn't matter what happens in your 10 placement games. If your account is new you will be placed in iron 4. They have already admitted this is not working how they expected it to and are going to fix it. Why are you even arguing about it?

: This has always been the case. It even stated in the FAQs that players in ranked are restricted as to whom they can queue up with, and that the restriction is tied to visible ranking. Matchmaking itself is based on MMR. This isn't a case of "Riot messing up". This is exactly how it's designed.
No, the mess up is all new accounts starting in Iron 4. Meaning, on a new/smurf account, you get matched with people that you then can't duo with_** in every single game.**_

: {{champion:86}} Hyped up in Lore to be this big courageous champion but in reality plays like a freaking coward.
Honestly, I think it might be a deliberate joke... given that so many of his quotes in the game are about bravery. > "Fear is the first of many foes." > "No matter your numbers, I will not yield." > "Our courage must never waver." etc... at least I like to think it's a joke, and Riot didn't just totally %%%% up.
: Riot Please fix the Matchmaking
Riot thought it would be a good idea for all new accounts to start in Iron 4, regardless of their MMR. As you can see, this account was not ranked in any previous season. So what happens is they are playing in their usual MMR, with a lower league. It's stupid, they have acknowledged its stupid, and they will fix it when season starts.
: I appreciate the response. This makes me think I'll stick to top lane as I enjoy Sona, but hate AP carry champs. I like utility, and keeping my team healthy, while making plays with her ult.
Don't listen to his advice. Here's why: 1. Statistically, if you play better than your lane opponent consistently you will win more games than you lose and you will climb. Sure, losing sprees happen, bad teams happen, bad days happen. But if you are _**consistently better**_ in any role than your lane opponent you can climb. 2. Janna, Soraka and Sona are still some of the strongest champs in soloq. In lower elo I would stick to Sona though. 3. You will get bad ADCs, but so will the enemy team - don't worry about that. As long as you play better than the enemy support that's all you need to think about. 4. **Play whatever you find fun. It's a game after all.** Source: I hit dia 4 as a janna main in season 6, starting from silver 4. In season 7 I had less time to play, but still reached mid plat on 3 accounts as a support main. I've started a new account for season 8 after returning from an extended break, started from iron 4 (like all new accounts now) and currently silver 1 playing Zyra/Leona/Janna/Karma/Soraka.

Which means that you start your placements in a rank a little lower than your current one. > So the higher you get now, the higher you'll start next season so you'll have an easier climb Double-edged sword. If you play a lot of ranked games now and do poorly you will start lower than if you had not played ranked at all during preseason.
Kind of an invalid point. If you play ranked and do poorly your rank reduces. Doesn't matter that it's pre-season or not. Only reason not to play ranked right now is if your main champ or role is bugged/out of meta due to pre-season changes, and there are plans to fix that before season begins.

: How to keep two seperate settings for league on one computer for 2 accounts
As a temporary workaround until you find a more permanent fix/Riot fixes it, you can create a copy of the **game.cfg** file stored in: > C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Config Set up how you like it (and your boyfriend would do the same) then you just have to replace the file with your one each time before you start playing.

Less than 1% pick rate. Not going to happen.
: yeah no biggy it put me in iron 4 as well while I was diamond the season before. I enjoy it actually! I hope it stays this way because I love to climb.
Its not so fun as a support main. ADCs just walk away from free kills.

I don't play so much now but I'm just not looking forward to grinding all the way from iron as a support main. Maybe, it will be sorted out for the new season and you get placed in a higher tier after your placement matches?
Sorry, to be clear. This is a fresh account - I'm not playing on my main. MMR too high and I'll get wrecked because I'm just back from a long break. Anyway, idk just doesn't seem right to be placed 2 leagues below the MMR you are playing in.
: No, but it seems to be happening to a lot of people. So I wouldn't take it personally. Riot did say that they are still testing the ranked system during pre-season. Hopefully, it will all be sorted out by the time S9 starts.
Oh I know I'm not iron... it's not my first account, i finished in p3 season 8, and dia season 7. I don't play so much now but I'm just not looking forward to grinding all the way from iron as a support main.
: Everyone starts in Iron and loses no LP until they reach their MMR's division... Or so they've said.
+32 per win, -10 per loss.

We either have people complaining about too few changes or too many. I guess the saying holds true: we can't please everyone.
I guess the point I was making, in summary, is: * big change mid season = bad * big change pre season = good
