: Being away doesn't mean your MMR changes, just your personal skill. MMR doesn't decay outside of the soft resets between seasons. There's no way to know if you're away from the game entirely, or just playing on a different account. In this case matchmaking matches you based on the MMR you had before you took a break, which is not where you personally are at the moment. You'll just have to play and let the MMR catch up to you.
Thanks for the info. How many placement games will I have to play? Is it 6 or 8? I've played 5 and got Bronze I but had Gold opponents in the last game as well. I've won it and got 70 LP which I think is a lot. Is it still placement?
Rioter Comments
: It’s still similar placements, just easy to understand. For your first 10 games you loose no LP, gain double LP, and skip promotion series. So you started at B1, but next game if you win you will automatically promote to S4... do well in placements and you can easily get to S1 or even G4 from where you currently are.
Except that I had to play 3 games at gold elo. Had to pick first so ppl could handily counterpick me and it was clear I don't play at this elo. So, why this terrible system? Three games where I was hardly more than a creep. Thanks riot for great matchmaking. Why wouldn't you place me at challenger lvl and see what happens from there?

: > "also, riot only delays patches for national holidays" - which is absolutely HORRIBLE patch release policy. i didn't say that i agreed with it, I'm just stating facts also, that's not how bugs work. thetoystracker made a good comment on how they work, go checkk that out. btw, if you put a > at the start of a sentence, it changes it into a quote so you don't have to put quotation marks around it
I know exactly how bugs work - I work in the industry. Yes, not all bugs can be discovered by testing, but easily detectable criticals should never go into release. I'd say 20 minutes login time IS critical. And it was fixed by another patch after 3-4 days.
: youre saying it as though there is a magical fix bugs button, which there isnt. also, riot only delays patches for national holidays
You probably don't understand what he said. I'll repeat it especially for you: "they should not of released the patch then as these bugs were reported in PBE" It's not about fixing bugs, it's about not releasing the patch with bugs which were reported, but not yet fixed. "also, riot only delays patches for national holidays" - which is absolutely HORRIBLE patch release policy.

: Getting early gold isn't bad if you are a good player. I checked your profile and you are iron 2 in TFT, so don't complain about TFT.
At low levels you'll die before you can build something like high lvl players advise because everyone plays too aggressively. Several items can be the difference. Besides that, I doubt gold can be compared to items. Items stay with you to the end of the game, some people even say that you should build your team around items you get.

: Knowing when to transition. Knowing how to position your champions. And most importantly just playing with what you get. Like you can want to play rangers but if you don't get any AS items you're better of not doing it.
Well, I looked at meta compositions. Maybe it's my bad memory, but I find remembering all meta matching groups, champions and item receipts impossible. How the hell do you remember all that and transition from one build up to another on the fly just by looking at what rolls you get? It's not just classes, it's specific champions AND classes because to build a good endgame group you need specific champions which combine the right classes.
: Luck.
So, where's the skill in the game, when so much depends on luck? I constantly see ppl who don't lose a single round from the beginning to the end just because they were lucky in the beginning to roll matching champions or to create high tier items on right champions from the start.

Yes, I've played a lot more or less two years ago.
Rioter Comments
: What's wrong with this game?
Lol. 10 minutes trying to find a match. Not a single match passed champ select stage. Is it only normal draft, or the rest of the modes are just as unplayable?
Uraraka (EUNE)
: You are playing normals right? I don't see you playing ranked games and for normals, though there is an mmr there is no rank; this means that there is no need for rank to catch up to mmr and no need for matchmaking to force 50% winratio which mostly shows that rank is at actual mmr and has stabilized. Normals are basically trolling games and no one cares for them; if you want somewhat good games play ranked solo queue.
I'm playing normals because I don't want to start playing ranked until I can play one position at good level and other positions at decent level with several champions.
: Why matchmaker is not balancing my W/L ratio at 50%?
And another wonderful game: 1. Teemo (Me) - 9/3/3 2. Jinx - 1/15/2 3. Lux - 1/7/1 4. Akali - 2/15/2 5. Evelyn 11/10/5 I was hearing "An ally have been slain" literally every minute, lol. Had a lot of fun (not). It looks even if I were the best toplaner in the world, there was no chance to win it. And such games are not a rarity. It looks I'm logging in to get my daily ration of defeats and then to log off....

: I read to the point you said Cait has no escapes. I'd recommend you to read the champion ability descriptions before playing a champ ;)
If you call E a serious escape... well.
Rioter Comments
: Because 90% of the playerbase doesn't want 25min queues - especially in high ELO
It wouldn't be hard to make an option to ask a player to agree to non-preferred role - simple checkbox. If the player agrees, keep the current system, if not, make the player wait longer if preferred role is not available. This wouldn't be a problem on high ELO as those people can be at least competent in all positions.
Rioter Comments
: Because Rito thinks it´s more important to punish people who hurt other peoples feelings (Because words DO hurt) rather than punishing people who actually ruin a game (i.e. afks, feeders etc.) If a player goes 0/5 after 6 minutes, then a player does not have a bad game, he is feeding. Yeah I am going to point that out. Who gets the report? me. does the feeder get anything? nope. Rito needs to get their priorities straight. And their report system sorted out.

Agree, You can mute the flamer and if he's doing the job and plays, you might win the game. You can't mute a feeder or an afk and prevent him from ruining your game. Guess who will get the report? Of course the one who said something in the chat and not the one who made the game unwinnable by feeding or abandoning the game.
: Harsher punisments if you fail the afk checks
One of the reasons I've playing more DoTA lately and less LoL is because the dynamic queue is taking forever. And when finally you get a match, someone goes afk and forgets to ban or to pick.
: when is riot gonna nerf Lux?
Take a bottle of vodka, drink it, select Katarina, drop your face on the keyboard every time you see Lux = win.
Humudu2 (EUW)
: Brand's ultimate is bugged
Not sure that it's the case, but in some situations it will not bounce. For example, if you target a champion and it uses Zhonya's? Or Fizz on pole, maybe some other cases.

It's not just "right now". They were the strongest pick like forever. Nothing beats the ability to blink in, delete something by dealing 100k dmg in 0.0001 sec and blink out.
Rioter Comments
: Sure. But one could say "Oscars are all about acting ability" and yet the indubitably talented actors such as Will Smith and Samuel L. Jackson were overlooked. Which is obvious injustice. I think that demanding quotas is perfectly reasonable thing to do. Hell, large companies do this already as their recruitment policy. [Just look at Apple who make increasing the diversity a part of their mission statement!](http://www.apple.com/diversity/) I don't see how hiring in the field of technology/engineering is less ability/competence based than something much less serious - playing a game. And if Apple can do it I don't see why Riot can't.
Large companies are just caving under political pressure. Apple shouldn't be doing this and also Riot. And how many talented white/Asian actors were overlooked? There are great actors who didn't get Oscars for their whole life. But they can't play the race card and cry to the media. Those quotas are bs. If you are good - you are hired, if not - keep searching. Nobody should give a damn about what color your skin is, or what is your sexual orientation or some other irrelevant stuff. Maybe NBA teams should have white players quota since they are badly underrepresented.
: LoL and inclusivity in e-sports
Sorry, it's just SJW bs. Just like Oscar boycott. No one should be included in a team just because he/she's black, white, male, female, etc.

Plat is above where the majority of players are. Would "I'm just Diamond I" work as well? And on your smurf you are playing vs ppl who are way below Plat skill lvl. It's just a legit form of griefing.

Boosting is not, but smurfing is - get your facts straight. I'm not saying it's not legit. It's just lame, but legit. Like the OP said. He lost a game on his main and decided to go for some ez wins on his smurf.
Squaid (EUW)
: I got reported for tryharding ?!
So, you've decided to grief n00bs who probably felt like they are trying to break a concrete wall with their heads while playing with you. Then they got frustrated and reported you. You probably won't be punished, but even if you are, you deserve it for smurfing.
: Banning Jhin...
I've yet to see a Jhin that would win his team a game. So, people just waste a ban on him.
ΔŘΦ Ω (EUNE)
: 2 afks and lost
afk'ing is getting out of hand Yesterday had a pre bot. We were winning, then supp went afk, then in 10 minutes adc went afk. As a result - defeat. Fortunately it was just normal. It still sucks to waste nearly 40 minutes because of 2 trolls.
DaineT (EUW)
: Why dose ranked feel so borken/unfair
If you can't vastly outskill your opponents and teammates and carry nearly everything solo, it will take you a very very very long time to climb.
: Please Riot Games :(
I doubt bans are reversible.
Siqilia (EUW)
: Que time
Noticed that too on normal draft. Sometimes you wait for a very long time, then someone misses ban and I'm thrown back into the queue. After 5 minutes or so the system is so desperate that it ignores your line preference.
: Ranked positioning system
I'm not playing ranked this season because the placements are atrocious. Last season I was S II, and I'm sure if I won't win all or 9 out of 10 of my placement games I'll be thrown into deep Bronze. And GL climbing out of there unless you are Diamond and can carry anything nearly solo.
Cortex101 (EUW)
: I need an adc i can carry with
You can't carry with adc this season unless you have Diamond I support.
