Ok, so to clarify, i'm not asking for people to be forced to Mastery 5 on champs. Just require level 1 or 2, I.E. make them play 3-4 games in normal first - in lower elo some of these first timers are literally, shocking. Like, you'd think they just bought the account! I don't think that would damage the functioning of ranked or cause undue grinding in game modes that suck... 2. > [{quoted}](name=Teahyun,realm=EUW,application-id=39gqIYVI,discussion-id=E4eXUwqW,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2019-06-12T08:43:35.429+0000) > > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IKihzPey20 > > you are not the first one to notice. Look at the upload date lul That's interesting, but it's not actually the primary issue i was trying to highlight. reducing the rank range between duo partners would prevent the issues im experiencing - its not that I'm finding my opponents are all higher elo - its that someone drags there lower skilled friend into my games, forcing me to try and play with them when they aren't as skilled (I'm not trying to sound arrogant, i know i suck, but there **are** people who suck harder than I do). Struggling to win I accept, the skill-spread between bronze-gold is actually really big so i accept that I will get people who are maybe higher ranked than their skill level in my games, but actively bringing them into the game when the MMR system recognises they are significantly lower is another thing entirely and well within RIOTs gift to fix.
