After i reached 1400 mmr in normal games, honestly it feels so degradating playing at 700 mmr.
I know what u think, u should be able to carry, i know i know,
sometimes i carry vs a full gold team, sometimes i dont, to me its all about the team, it doesnt even matter if ur mid laner is 1/10 u can still win, or u can lose as a fed top laner
problem is that sonetimes u get a brain dead team, suiciding one by one on the baron and so on...or u play adc and it feels like a bot game
imho ur first placement match should be at the same mmr u have in normal, before starting the very first ranked, what do u guys think?
