The systems are NOT complimentary and are in fact contradictory. There is no point in a League system if the matchmaking is not based off it. Likewise there is no point in having an Elo or MMR matchmaking if you have a league system.
The only thing this kind of system does is artificially inflate the difficulty of upward progression. Its why the skill level at any given league position varies so much.
