: Riot Matchmaking
Ok.. I'll just put this here. [Promotions and match fixing](http://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/off-topic-en/7TApITGU-promotions-and-match-fixing) A post I wrote a few days ago, read it well.
: It has ~~nothing~~ not much to do with winning streaks. If your elo/Matchmaking rating is a lot higher you might skip a division. In some cases people even skipped their promos too. You can't skip the first division of each tier tho. Also your MMR raises/drops rather slowly, so it's rare and you have to be a lot better than the average player in your division. I'm pretty sure that Riot did not remove this feature, but I think it's unlikely that someone skips a division at the start of the season.
Hold on right there! Just skipped gold IV. Straight from gold V to gold III.

Because the someone who left was you. Solved.
: A remake counts as a loss in the promotions. That is not a bug. Why, you may ask? It is so that the system would not be abused. Your friend might be the leaver so you don't lose promotions. That would be an example of the possible abuse. There is also one other thing regarding it only counting as a loss in promotions, but that's related to fixing the results of the games and doesn't really answer your question..
And what comes to your demands.. "but I demand some sort of compensation" You are not getting any.. As there is nothing to compensate. Everything went just as it was meant to. Accept it or don't.
: Remade game counted as a loss in my promo (wasn't AFK)

: 7 Wins = BRONZE IV?!
Well, apparently this is coming a thing. I finished my placements to Silver I with 8 victories. And all the placement matches were against platinums. So yeah, I find it unfair as well. But I find it more unfair than your case. You got dropped from silver to bronze. That's not much of a difference, where as i got dropped from platinum to silver. hows that? Its going to be fun stomping all these "platinums" at silver, oh boy!

: My opinion about League. |___| < This is my care box... its empty.
Wait... Should I read that again? As i remember, you started out saying that the the game is a "game of cards" and that the "better champion select always wins" and this pisses you off. So basically you are talking about that skill has nothing to do with the game, it's just... the champion select. OK. Even though that is highly argumentative, lets agree for a second. What surprises me is, that then you continue to give tips about how to reach diamond. right? All ready going off the topic to a " I care " zone. Yes.. You particularly said " get to diamond faster " or at least referenced to it in regarding your tips. But what is the point of these... Elementary tips. Yes, elementary. When champion select has the greater impact. Didn't we already establish it's all about the champion select? But Lets not get stuck on these, technicalities. Like: "but its only when you are high elo, or what ever...." This is not the point i'm making. Now, you state that skill actually has no meaning? Well, that... Lets just say, a player can only come to a conclusion like that after he or she has stopped evolving, when the person has nothing more to learn. Well, at least to hes or hers own knowledge. And just proceeds to blame the champions picked as that would be the only variable in the games.. sorry, tens of thousands... of games. apart of course from bad team mates, but lets not get to that just yet. What you claim is insulting, and that is an understatement. I am not saying that the champions picked wouldn't greatly impact the result of the game, as it clearly does. But what you are saying, is that a skill full team could not overcome a bad team just because they play "better" champions. And that is disturbing, that is incorrect, anyone claiming so is either a bad player or just stupid. What you do say, is that when the skill levels of the opposing teams are equal, the team with better champions win? err.... really? Well of course they do! Shame on you even bringing that up. And what is this about high elo and LCS.. They aren't all good, hell, they aren't at all on even grounds when it comes to skill. Lets move on, you say you have been at bronze and diamond and that you have ... lets just quote you: "i learned alot of things along the way about this game with more than 20K matches played" and "ive seen it all... tens of thousands of times." So, this begs a question, how much is that? well. this is a simple match problem really. (20 000matches * 20minutes)/60minutes = 6666 Hours. (this being if every game lasted only 20 minutes) (20 000matches * 40minutes)/60minutes = 13 333 Hours. (this being if every game lasted 40 minutes) So.. we are somewhere between 6000 and 13000 hours of gameplay. now, if you are at 6000 game hours, i simply cannot believe what you are saying. That amount of hours and you ignore the skill factor!? And on a more pressing note, by taking a look at your match history. 6000 hours makes no sense or you just play drunk all the time and probably have no clue about the mechanics of this game nor understanding of the issues you speak of. Which already starts to look real bad. If you have 13 000 game hours, i simply call you a liar. Because that would put you in a TOP list of "most game hours spent ingame" in all regions. Yes, counting Koreans. And to say " Champion select is the only factor determining the outcome of a game", with that many hours of accessible game knowledge is just absurd. All that considered. Lets conclude what you said and what can we gather from this. "Diamond is high ELO" "LCS / high ELO players are all (almost) equal in skill, and champion select determines the match's outcome" "Games are determined by who has the better champions and it also affects the lower ELO players, but only the "high ELO" players like yourself realize it" "here's some newbie tips known for almost every division. Tips that will get you to diamond... Faster" "seen it all, 20 000 games played" I am just stunned. I really don't know how to end this... I don't even want to continue this any further. So, lets just give it a TL:DR which you failed to provide. TL:DR - The OP is a scumbag who has no clue of what he is talking about. He is expressing he's own distorted opinions or lies about the game and he's self, while giving the reader false information. He also paints an image of him self as the "know it all". This, the reader instantly accepts and naturally believes the bull crap that is being fed to him or her if the reader doesn't know better.

: The real reason why transfers are disabled
Given the matter a few seconds, I conclude that it would indeed be problematic to transfer people at the end of the season. Due to rewards system. Now, when a player is transfered from EUNE the player's ranking is scaled to resemble the ranking on EUW. And the scale is always a downscale. Meaning a gold V EUNE player might be put to a silver division. This of course would cause a reaction, which would have to be dealt with someway or another. As the specific player wants the higher rewards. Rather than dealing with it, it is easier to... just... disable transfers. I am not sure whether the scaling happens the other way around the same way. So that a silver player would be scaled to a gold V when transfered from EUW to EUNE. But you don't need to be a rocket scientists to see why this could lead to an abuse of the system or to it's downfall. Just swap to another region and after collecting your nice border, jump back and enjoy. or lose your shiny border just because you didn't know about the scaling. This though leads to the question, why not transfer earlier and jump back after the rewards are handed out for the same abuse? Well gee, i don't know. Maybe the system only down scales? Still leading into unwanted attention towards Riot. But, does it really matter if you can't transfer at this moment? Just transfer when the new season starts. YAY! And to wash my hands, I base this information on older information from season 3-4, which might not be true at this time. There could be other reasons as well. For example shitty coding that doesn't allow transfers when certain processes are being made? Or that the transfers place a load on the servers or other systems that interfere with updates/rewards. Or that it's just too much work to handle all though the process should be automated. What ever the reason is.. There usually isn't a satisfying answer when it comes to Riot doing anything.
: Issued a ban after august 7th (about the rewards)
Yeah... Bans are issued by the staff when deemed necessary. You wont get banned by intentionally feeding once nor twice. You need multiple violations. And by just playing bad, you wont get banned. As I stated, all bans are given out by the staff after investigation. Which means, either you intentionally feed a shit ton or your chat logs are disgusting to read. Either way, you deserved what you got.

: Chat history
What I really hate about these posts is that they always say " hacked ". This is probably what happened, right? Your friend gets a message from a player who claims that you get free skins from this website. He send a link to a website to your friend who opens it up and fills in he's account details. and then proceeds to cry " i got hacked ". Its not a "hack" if you write your username and password on a phising website. ....shame on you. If i had my way, that account should never be returned to the original owner for various reasons. It should be banned 1. It might have been sold. (bannable) 2. it's not a hack. You gave your account away, knowingly or not. Still gave it away. (bannable) 3. Not RIOTs job nor obligation to cover up your fuck ups. 4. it's a valuable lesson to screw up real good. Wont be doing the same mistake again.

And they probably would be right to do so

How about just... Dick. At least it will reflect the feelings of your teammates towards you.

: Game we once loved
The game started to go to a wrong direction already from season 2. What you consider a "game we all loved" in season 4, you are talking about a shadow of the glory this game once had. It is no longer and never shall be again but for those who are new to it. That being said, the player base keeps growing all the time and the attention league gets just keeps multiplying. But what it doesn't do, is bring back season 1 and the real good times with this game. - TechSupp0rt
: The feeling when...
The feeling when your 16/3 mid laner doesn't help other lanes even though we are clearly losing and then proceeds to flame us for our mistakes, still refusing to help. Then even threats to give up and afk at base. /ff 20
: Ranked start for S7
Greetings, The way it worked was that the starting rating was a mix of your rating before the season ended and the rating you managed to get preseason. So technically it is worth to play but the result at the start of the new season might not reflect your rating the way you would imagine it to. In short, its always worth to spam rankeds in a pursue of a higher ranking. - TechSupp0rt

: Problem with a replay (from Replay.GG file)
Greetings, Well well well.. You are probably using LOL replay, aren't you? That being said, the techsupport, if contacted will blame your connection for not staying connected and then ask for a specific file to confirm. But that wont help you now would it? Is this happening to anyone else? simply put, YES! The replay system never works really the way you'd want to. There are other softwares out there that seem to work better. If you do not wish to try another software, i suggest checking your firewall settings for a possible block for lolreplay. By unblocking the in and out going data (if blocked) you might magically fix the problem. Other than that, there probably isn't any reasonable fix, at least that I would currently know of. - TechSupp0rt

: Internet Service Provider Experienced Problems
Greetings, When the issue lies somewhere else than RIOT's servers they will NOT hit the panic button. By panic button I of course mean the loss forgives for everyone resulting in a "negation" of all wins and losses while the issues stay unresolved. This is not a case of a RIOT server issue, this is a case of your connection going haywire, which will not be pardoned. Regardless of whether the issue is your own causing or that you knew it was going to happen or not or that your PC suddenly catch fire. Nothing will be done to "delete the match" and nothing should be for the sake of integrity of the game. Shit happens, we all have had our fair share of DCs and BugSplats of our own, resulting into losing promos all together. You still have 4 matches to go. Better play them when your connection is steady. - TechSupp0rt

: Ranked Surrender Suggestions
When a player hits the /FF, it literally means he has given up, or in some cases is just mad but will continue. Might not play as well, but still is trying. when 4 players all surrender, the whole morale of the team has gone 404. If you were to say no in that situation, and the game went on. Would they really try to fight, or just stay AFK in the base and allchat " push mid, BG ". When you have played long enough, you should know the strength of the champions in your team and how the game would play out if you kept going. And it is so at higher ranks. You can tell weather the game is hopeless or winnable. Implementing this wouldn't necessary improve the game, but only delay the inevitable.
