Yes, but you cannot just use levels as an indication of skils, **especially** not when you're talking about smurfs.

Anecdotal evidence... Sorry, but your comment isn't very useful. This is not how the matchmaking system works at all, it's not just going to match you with bad players because it thinks you win too much, that's really just a conspiracy theory of yours. Additionally, you have absolutely no way of judging the "skill" of others, because you can never see their MMR. ---- I hope that when you say "lvl" you mean "skill", and not the actual game level between 1 and 30...

: oh, if toxic players, who can be easily muted, have even worse impact on the game, then fine
Muting only helps if the damage is already done, it still creates a terrible environment for players, but you didn't initially come here to start a discussion about flaming... If you're gonna switch topics and passively point out everything you don't like, you're really just presenting yourself as just another salty player. Don't do that if you want to be taken seriously. --- The point you originally made is completely irrelevant to the subject. _Even if_ smurfs were a bigger problem than flamers, that doesn't mean toxicity shouldn't be punished... It's like saying "_stop arresting rapists because murderers exist!_".
: Why would they? I can't see any reason besides playing on a different server.
Actually, many Rioters have multiple accounts. While not every Rioter actually has "Riot" in their name, even the ones who do get annoyed by it at times. You can probably imagine that being a Rioter gets you a lot of attention ingame, and it's not always appreciated, so they use alternate accounts without the "Riot" tag.
Vonyalo (EUW)
: yeah, better ban toxic players and those who invented new way to play ascension which is NOT FUN to play against, right?
Right! Because those have an even worse impact on the game than a few smurfs. Your point is...?
shaxi78 (EUNE)
: Hey, how does the system differentiate between skilled mechanics and smurfing?
Well, the difference between those is consistency! In the end MMR is just calculated by your wins... A smurf - Let's say a Gold player who's in Bronze, just has the skill of a Gold player, if he starts winning games, the system will quickly match him with other people of a similar skill. This means he will play against other Gold players **long before** he actually reaches the LP of Gold. The Divisions are not always a clear representation of skill! ---- A bronze player with relatively good mechanics is still in Bronze, because he must lack something else, maybe it's teamplay, or maybe he rages super easy... That's why I told OP, just because he got wrecked by someone with great mechanics, doesn't mean they're a smurf, or even a better player.
Vonyalo (EUW)
: Hope one day riot employee encounter only smurfs in their games
You _do_ know that Rioters play this game too, right? They know smurfs exists, and they experience the same things that you do. Truth is, the system gets real smurfs out of your way pretty fast, their MMR will skyrocket after only a few games. Chances are, you are a little too quick on calling people smurfs. Just because someone stomps you, or has great mechanics, doesn't mean they're smurfing, they might just have a good game.
K1NG5TER (EUW)
: I don't know of many other online based games that penalise members for poor internet connection, hardware issues (either Riot or the person playing) and sometimes finding their lives interfere with games which can last over an hour. They design the game with enough slack to deal with the occasional drop out. As regards to business sense your argument is facile and assumes the burden on the customer.
Comparing this to just "online games" is pretty unfair, and just a dishonest evaluation of the problem. Leaving games has a minimal or no effect at all in the majority of games. _For example: It doesn't matter if a player disconnects in Battlefield. There are 31 others on the team, and a new one with equal value will join in just a few seconds.... _ --- That's not the case in League though, if a player disconnects for whatever reason, it puts the team at a severe disadvantage, to a point where the loss is basically guaranteed. Additionally it creates an extremely unsatisfying experience for all the players involved. It doesn't matter why you leave the game, the end result is the same for your teamates. Riot just cannot have you ruin that many games for their customers, as an excessive leaver, you are really hurting the game. --- Of course Riot knows that emergenicies and technical failures can occur, that's why you don't get penalized for occasional disconnects. Only when you chronically leave games will you get hit with serious penalties. It's not that hard to reserve an hour of time, or to not start a game when you know you might not be abel to finish it. It is also your responsibility to make sure the game is running smoothly on your system. As I said, there are no known problems from Riot's side, so **you** will have to look into this if you want to play League. It's just no one else's responsibility...

: It may not be new, but it is a present problem. And since it still happens in this frequency the "punishment" doesn't seem to work at all Which makes it even more important to discuss this matter. What is the punishment by the way?
The punishment system works in 4 stages, regardless of what toxic phrases exactly someone says. If players displays negative or toxic behavior for a consistent period, they will start out with a 10-Game Chat Restriction. If they do not improve their behavior after that, the following stages will kick in: - 25-Game Chat Restriciton - 14-Day Ban - Permanent Ban --- It _is_ possible to get banned by saying easy. It's just going to take longer compared to more serious offenses. Extreme offenses like death wishes, racism, homophobia etc. can even skip the chat restrictions and go straight to a 14-day ban.
: "Ez" "Easy" for what?
Sorry, nothing new here. Saying "easy" and any of the variations is clearly against the rules. It's a disrespectful and negative phrase that _does_ get players punished.

I have this green name and the owl icon because I'm a Volunteer. You can imagine us standing between Riot and the community, and forming a connection. Volunteers are chosen because they have a lot of knowledge about the game (eg. Player Behavior, Technical stuff, etc.). --- >How do you become a green name (Volunteer)? If you use this knowledge to help other players on the Boards, or want to provide to the community in some other way, you've got most of what it takes to be a Volunteer. You have to be an "outstanding" member in one way or another, and of course you need the motivation to do it (helping others) for quite a while. **We have two different ways of recruitment: ** We either just invite super helpful people that we spot around the Boards, or we work with an application form. In both of them we follow the philosophy to only recruit people that are **already doing** what a Volunteer would do, to make sure they're don't just apply for the fancy title :P --- >What do green names handle on boards? There's quite a few things we handle, but since we're volunteers, we can **choose** what we want or don't want to do. - We post on the Boards very regularly, usually helping or teaching other players. - To some extend we're in contact with Riot to ask questions the community might want to know. - We organize contests like this one, giving the community something fun to do on these Boards. - Most of us have mod-rights, moderation of these Boards is done entirely by us. That's most what we're doing on the Boards, but theoretically we could expand beyond the Boards much more, because we only reach a limited amount of players here. --- >Are there some rules to consider? Of course we have to follow the ingame and Boards' rules like everyone else, but since we're supposed to be role models, or "_examplary members_" of the community, we have to watch out a little more than normal players not give rude responses ^^ ---- Sorry this was quite long :P It can be a little tricky to explain our "job", but I'm always happy to do so.

Congratulations, let's hope it's the first of many wins ^^ Yeah, you'll have to be a little more patient with the rewards.

: here is the thing I can't remember my email but wtf, I expected riot to be fair in this.I wasted so much time on this game that I could've used for way better things.
Why do you instantly assume that Riot has some malicious intent? The first thing most people would do is try to look into this and understand what happened instead of coming up with some conspiracy theory.

: So close to being awesome...
Greetings. The issue you describe is not a common problem with the game. There are tons of users playing on Mac, and I don't see others having that problem. This _is_ most likely a problem on your side, maybe a corrupt installation (try repairing the game) or a problem with your ISP... We don't know, but neither do you, so blaming Riot for an issue only you have seems a little unreasonable. > I won't even delve into how ridiculous it is to ban people from playing who want to play- you know from a business perspective. It's not ridiculous. Because even though you _want_ to play, you hurt the game every time you disconnect. 9 others players have a bad experience because of you, so penalizing you for it, and making sure you fix that problem is the smart decision from a business standpoint!
: how to get chests? O,o
Greetings. You can only earn chests when you play champions that you own and haven't earned a chest with yet! Check the "collections" tab in your profile to see which champions you can still earn a chest with :)

Well here ya go: https://imgur.com/a/5r4PA
Looking good, as Shiwah said, you should contact the Player Support and ask them to review your case or why they think it was deserved. I guess you were kinda rude to that Lee. It's understandable considering he was being a jerk, but might still hurt your case here. --- As you might know the ban system scales your punishments. You usually start out with Chat Restrictions. If those don't make you improve your behavior, you get a 14-day ban as your final warning. If you _still_ show toxicity, even small offenses like being super negative ("GG, FF15") or slight insults can result in the permaban. > a bot just took the flamer's report seriously Every report is taken seriously. When you report a player, the system starts an investigation of their behavior ingame. It's much more than a word filter, it's a machine learning system that knows what kind of behavioral patterns the community dislikes, and punishes them pretty accurately. That's why false reports don't do anything. Reports have no real power, doesn't matter if you get 1 or 9 reports in a game, they all just start an investigation, and only that decides whether you were toxic or not. ---- If you have any questions about reports or the ban system, feel free to ask. Best of luck with your support ticket, I hope they'll give you another chance there.

I figured most people rather need keys than chests. I'll try to change yours to chest, not sure if it'll be possible with that many winners though ^^
: I'll give the next event/contest a chance if i see it. Weather it's artwork or cosplays again. Star Guardian event was on Front page of Boards on the side so it's good it was showed there. So it would be good to make the future ones stand out there as well. I am not sure what Volus is..? I assume you have groups working on it. But if you have few/different groups of people working on the event,making the thread and replying to people,next time,Please make sure you are ALL on the same page as for what is needed/asked for the contest. If i knew that the skin was supposed to be funny, I wouldn't go for detailed precision,trying to make it look as much as the actual skin. But something more comedic. Also make sure you let the people know what is Yay and what Nay, If i get lied again ill be really upset,because it sucks getting nothing for your...I don't wanna call it 'Hard work' but in a way it is,it's not like it took weeks to make it,but it still wasn't simple since it was my first time making something like that. And please use this as an example, I know you said this is the first time you've done a cosplay contest,so hopefully stuff like this won't happen in future events. Not just to me but anyone. One more thing. In the reply above you mentioned 'you' do art contests. So who are 'you' people? Is there a way i can follow your contests and stuff? Weather it's art or whatever. I'm not on Boards every day all the time and if it's not on front home page where i can see it,it would suck to miss the chance and opportunity to participate. Anyway i guess that's it. Thank you for the quick reply and once again sorry if i came off as rude in my post. I was frustrated,still slightly am but what can i do. {{sticker:sona-playing}}
Oh, "Volus" is short for Volunteers ^^ Everyone with a colored name on the Boards is a Volunteer. We stand between Riot and the community, we have a lot of knowledge about Riot and League of Legends, so we can help players with issues or questions they have. Of course we also create these contests, because it's really a lot of fun, and a great way to give back to the community. Additionally, Volunteers take care of the Boards' moderation. --- > Is there a way i can follow your contests and stuff? We always pin our Events to the top of the EN Boards, or use a button like we did for the Star Guardian Event. Unfortunately we can't give you a more convenient way to find our events. However, we usually create our contests on League's "special occasions". Stop by the Boards on events like Harrowing, Snowdown, Pool Party, and all the others, and you're likely to find a new Contest.

Okay, as I said I'll try to change some of the keys to chests. Not sure if Riot will like that though, since somone is gonna have to hand all of those out manually xD
: Hiii, so it looks like a won the 1350 star guardain skin, i did the quests for fun, and i have to say, i really enjoyed myself, good job with the event!!! ^^ i just think it could have had a bigger announcement, i didn't reach it by myself, a friend of mine found the event post and shared with me, so we did the quests together, ever since i've been looking up the results, although my hopes weren't up, i'm usually not lucky with this kind of thing (example i got like 10 champion shards in hextech xD , then i got two event orbs from arcade and worlds and finally a random forsake olaf, these 3 resulted in a reroll for well a 975 for a champ i dislike at the point of being 450 ip and i dont purchase him xD. I'd like to ask, where can we choose the skin and when should we expect to receive it? I'll be honest, star guardians are one of my favorite skin lines, tied with winter skins and arcade, and ... the thing is i managed to get enough rp to purchase the new horizen bundle in the last day xD soooo i got all the star guardian skins e really like, leaving only the 1820 jinx, and the 1350 for janna and poppy. Would it be possible to be gifted a skin with the same price but diferent theme? it is just that i really limited my options xD i'd rather have Soaring Sword Fiora, or the new katarina skin, Death Sworn, which are currently in PBE testing, and might be released in the next 2 weeks as a harrowing event, anyways, i can understand if rules are rules, and if i really have to choose out of the two sg skins of 1350, I'd choose Janna's. Anyways, my birthday is arround the corner, in the beggining of November, so i'll leave it up to the organisers which skin you'd give, as a suprise so to say xP I'd like any of the 3, the first two more than the last one, still any of the 3 would make for an awesome gift. Thank you for both the fun event and for reading this wall of text, i can be really boring , and it gets worse with all of my mistakes, english isn't my mother tongue, sorry xD
Heya, glad to hear you enjoyed our event. Announcing it big is risky, because when we start advertising these contests in the client, they'll likely attract an increadible amount of people, just due to the sheer number of players. This could become a problem if we suddenly have to judge 20.000 artworks for example ^^ --- Unfortunately, we can't really switch up the selection of skins now, so Star Guardian Janna is going to be your early birthday gift. However, maybe you'll get lucky in our next event again, so you can get the upcoming skins too ^^

: I was following the contest through out the other thread i didn't participate tho but i saw ALLLLL of the posts and every entry xD i stumble on you on threads now and then But i somewhat agree with you looking at those two and then yours..yeah feelsbadman you should have won something This is probably the reason i don't join xD it looks like they just pick something random rather than looking at everything i think even one of the best drawings didnt get a prize if i remember usernames correctly
I can assure you that the cosplay entries were judged. The other Volunteers just seemed to put more weight on the funny/ improvised cosplays than this one, which certainly took a lot of effort to make. --- >i think even one of the best drawings didnt get a prize if i remember usernames correctly This however, was intentional. That contest was an "Artwork Raffle", meaning the winners were drawn randomly, not judged by their skill. We want to give everyone a chance to win something, even if it's by pure luck. However, we still do a lot of classic drawing contests, because I LOVE to see and reward high quality artwork.
: Mehh..first contest of this kind that i apply to and i win just a key. Not to sound like someone who's sour about it but let me give some feedback as you asked for. There was A LOT OF PEOPLE who joined the contest,but only like 6-7 cosplays i belive. Something around that. Reason i joined was to have some fun and hopefully win some rp to buy the Championship Ashe and maybe some other stuff but mainly her. Donating is great and i love the skin so there's no better option right now. Now. Not to diss on others that joined the budget cosplay and i am sorry if anywhere in this post i come off as rude which i might but i am really not hating them,but seriously..iv'e put couple of days into making a star guardian cosplay,first time doing a cosplay too, I wasn't expecting the highest prize but i thought i'd win at least something. But i got beaten by a dude that put a bottle cap in his eye pretending he is Urgot,and a dude that put 3 forks on forehead pretending he is Shen. Now,they were somewhat funny ill give them that but is it 'shits and giggles' over something more quality/better looking? Man it's a contest not 'What skin can make you laugh more' but Dardasim and CreepyNait who won the prizes made almost 0 effort from what i can see,and a moderator said the cosplays Will be judged Accordingly and that they Will take in account if the skin is not following the theme of Star Guardians etc. and i quote > Your entry will be judged by, thematic coherency and ingenuity. They had nothing to do with it. Someone decided they should win just because it was funny on the first look? These are their cosplays. Urgot; https://imgur.com/a/vd4jw Shen; https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/322282012192800778/357606263426646016/InkedIMG_20170913_215917_LI.jpg AND THEN the 3d winner AsiaPL. She actually made some effort and made a cute looking star Guardian outfit and you put her on 3d spot,something that should actually qualify and that is actually good,really? 3d spot? Wow. Imo she deserves a higher place but whatever. She did pretty well if you ask me,if any of 3 of them should have been the number 1 it should have been her. Her cosplay; https://imgur.com/a/RQQR7 Whoever judged the skins weather it's few people or a bigger group at riot or wherever, i think you should not be the judge on future contests or at least next time follow your word. Your judgment is pretty bad if you ask me and don't think of me as someone who can't or doesn't wanna lose,just look at the skins and tell me is that the right order of winners? Yes they are somewhat funny,but that's all that first 2 are. No thematic to event,except urgot being a meme but still. They are budget cosplays so i don't expect something WOW but that girl did way better than them. BUT THIS is a part where i feel a little scammed because a mod told me this and i decided to make cosplay after his/hers respond. When i asked does it have to be a sg skin thmed or just any skin from league. > It doesn't have to be a star guardian skin, you can pick whichever champion you want as long as something in there has to do with the Star Guardian theme. 'As long as something in there has to do with the Star Guardian theme' So why did you overlook this and lied? I decided to make a cosplay after he/she replied to me,and i decided to stick to SG ezreal as he is the only male skin from that theme and tbh i thought my chances were good. Tell me,beside urgot being a meme with sg skin line how is he Valid? And then the Shen one,what did he have to do with the Star Guardian theme as you asked for? How were those two 'judged accordingly' I'm just wondering. People waited for days for result,I'm curious on who are all the people that judged and decided the winners. Because it's not cool to say something like that as a dev,and the result to be complete opposite of that,except that girl that actually did good. They also said. > In either case it's more important for people to have fun and submit entries than the actual limitations of it, but still it's not a raffle so the entries will be judged accordingly. 'But still it's not a raffle so the entries will be judged accordingly' Oh really? Doesn't feel like that one bit. .-. It really was fun making the cosplay and i was hyped for doing more of it in future but i'm feeling pretty down right now.. And you can judge me for this but i still belive my cosplay was better than the first two,it can be matter of taste but judging by the facts given in the 'requirements' for the budget cosplay, I did everything right and in order except having the flashy anime blue hair like ez does lol This is imgur you can check out what i'm talking about. This is just the normal one. https://imgur.com/UsjKAXT And here are other two i made for memes with some editing that is 'sg related' for friends and people who don't know how sg ez looks like. ;P https://imgur.com/JVqtFmV https://imgur.com/UZL38wW So yeah,that would be my rant. I doubt many people from community would read all this,they won't care or the post is long/boring,which i totally understand i'm not asking you to read it in the first place,to them i'm probably a 'Stop whining baby rage kid,learn how to lose' or something lol But the actual respond, I'd like to get from Moderators or people who actually judged the Cosplays to give me some kind of respond how their choices make sense. Give me your thoughts on this,was my cosplay that bad that i lose to something like 2 first winners? I mean, I made mine from stuff i had at home,only thing i bought was Glue but i still worked on it for few days,if i knew i'd get beaten by something like them..Meh. I don't wanna offend them,both cosplays gave me a little giggle but that's it. No theme,nothing to do with SG skin like or event theme, i do not know how long they took to make those but if you ask me judging them,they could have been done in a day or maybe two if you were missing one piece. I don't see much effort in them either. And put yourself in my shoes for a second,you do your best,making something for days,for the first time for a contest about your fav. game and then you lose to those two..I'm sorry but your choices seem rather poor as there were better candidates than those two. Maybe nobody will even read all this and i'm just wasting my time but man it just sucks because i feel really scammed and slightly disappointed in myself too,like i am the one who did something wrong... Like i got lied to by someone who i thought that never would lie to me since moderators are awesome on Boards and they are usually nice people. Why tell me one thing and then make it not be like that in the end,you could have said something like 'Yeah any skin from the game that applies can win,we will just pick one that we personally like the most,this is a Volunteers Star Guardian Event: Artwork, Missions and more! but yeah,you don't gotta do anything about it.' ._. I also had 390 dust,was missing one mission to have maximum number of it and i even drew for the raffle,but i got no words in that since it's all random,still just all adds more 'Sad' feeling to me tbh to not win anything but a single key which i'm still grateful for. https://imgur.com/dfOrbsA I'm sorry,that's all.
Hey, thanks a lot for taking the effort to write all of this. I totally understand your frustration here, it's clear that you put a lot of effort into this, probably more than some of the winners. The way that judging those entries worked was by letting a bunch of Volunteers vote on the entries. Of course these votes are subjective, and I guess the others gravitated more towards the improvised and funny cosplays, because that's what we had in mind when we launched. We thought players would only submit funny and weird cosplays, and not actually go for an accurate one. I guess that's what threw the judgement off here. --- Now I agree with you, and I'll definitely take it into consideration for next events. This is the first time we've done a cosplay contest, and we really didn't know what to expect. About the false information you got from one of the Volus... That really sucks :/ They didn't lie to you on purpose, it must've been a mix-up on their side. We didn't ask for Star Guardian themed cosplays, the Artwork Raffle however _did_ require SG themed entries. --- I'm sorry this worked out so badly for you, hopefully our next events will make up for it. Good luck! {{sticker:sg-soraka}}

: You're soo wrong. My friend has been game chat banned for 100 games. And you wont get perma ban ? You can get 14 days ban 2901234123421 times. If your case isn't "that strong". But if you spamm the chat like a guy with mental issues and make a full description about his whole family then yeah you can get perma banned...
I'm not wrong, your knowledge about the system is just incredibly outdated. You used to be able to get insanely high Chat Restrictions, that's no longer possible though, the system works in 4 stages, just like I said. --- > If your case isn't "that strong". And no, this is NOT how it works! You do not need to be extremely toxic to get a permanent ban, it just speeds up the process. After the 14-day ban, you can get the perma with just a small offense.

Haha, congrats! We didn't even plan to hand those out when we launched the event, guess it was a pretty spontaneous idea to get rid of our RP ^^

: Awwww ^0^ When do we have to get the rewards? :D Congrats EVERYONE !
Hard to tell, anywhere between 2 days and 2+ weeks I guess :/ It always depends on how busy the respetive Rioter is... The list of rewards is long, and someone will have to assign them all to these accounts :P

: And that is exactly why i went ahead and bought myself the skin that i wanted instead of waiting for the winners announcement to hand me some. Truthfully, i knew i wasn't gonna get anything. So i'm just gonna say that all of the given Star Guardian skins, i really haven't felt anything for any of them. Not because they aren't pretty enough but because i literally don't play any of those champions (except Soraka). Yesterday i bought enough of RP to buy a Soraka skin. I was looking at two skins, and for some reason, CHOSE to go with Program Soraka, even though the Star Guardian one costs the same amount of RP. I guess i really don't like her hair and her horn. She was also pretty much over - used in the Star Guardian game mode, which is one of the reason to why i couldn't feel the excitement (any) of owning one. I personally won many contests, where you were required to put your mind on the set and **create**. Having not been able to collect enough of material for a cosplay, i decided that i will just go with luck and see what happens. Either way, i am very satisfied how the cosplay prices were all non - related to the Star Guardian event. This means that people who won it will get a chance to spend it on whatever they'd like to on. I do have one down - feeling about getting a free key. I have so many. And it kinda irritated me. Can i refund it, please? {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
Well I didn't get myself any of this year's Star Guardian skins either, mainly because I rarely play those champs. I actually believe that Star Guardian Soraka is the prettiest of the skins, **because** of that hair you don't like... That's why she got to be the thumbnail of my thread :P --- We know that limiting the prize selection to only a few skins **can** be a little mean... But giving out flat RP rewards seems a little uncreative and boring. It's like getting money for your birthday. Sure, you get to choose the perfect item yourself, but chances are the RP are gonna sit in player's wallets for a while and they'll forget they ever won anything as soon as they spent it. Getting a specific skin will hopefully make people remember its "story"... --- However, we **always** switch things up, both the rewards and the contests themselves. If you stick around the Boards, you will find the right event for you, we do many of them every year! >I do have one down - feeling about getting a free key. I have so many. And it kinda irritated me. Can i refund it, please? Welp, that's unusual and kinda unlucky. Most players have many chests leftover, and struggle to get the keys :P Maybe I can turn yours into a chest, not sure though xD

: You should just start being a good sportsman. That's all there's to it really.
_Additional bonus to not getting banned: _ You might actually find that this game can be fun if you don't argue with the strangers you meet, and share a good time instead.

: Except i didn't insult other people. Only if telling people to stop flaming you is insulting!
Well, that's easy to say, but I can't believe that without seeing any evidence. If it's your word against the words of Riot's Player Support, trusting the PS is the safer bet...
: ✨Star Guardian Event✨ - Winner Announcement!
{{sticker:sg-ahri-2}} {{sticker:sg-syndra}} Hey guys, how's it going? Unfortunately, I was on vacation for the entire duration of the Star Guardian event. I was deeply involved with the planning and creation, but as soon as it was done, I had to leave this alone, so I missed almost everything that was going on _during_ the event... Looks like everything went smoothly though, the other Volus took good care ^^ ---- We really love creating these events, they might just be more fun for us than they are for you. (and we're not even getting free stuff :P) Please let us know if you have any criticism, feedback or ideas for other events. The next one is almost there already, we hope you'll enjoy it too!

: As matchmaker is so broken right now that i get matched with diamonds while im gold 4, i can try to improve in normal to tbh. but ye thats why im asking people for their opinions. i guess i indeed gave up on trying to improve and just to have fun in normals at this point (Which never happens since mmr is just broken). i did really want the border though not the skin :P.
You are not matched based on your Division. You are matched based on your MMR (Matchmaking Rating), generally with players who are around the same MMR. Winning or losing a game will increase or decrease your MMR. If you go on a crazy losing streak, the system will start to think you belong into a lower Division, thus making you lose more LP per loss and gain less for a win. You are also getting matched with people who are at the same MMR level as you. --- Playing against Diamond 4 is probably the best possible way for you to improve, so make sure you don't waste that chance by getting mad at matchmaking all game long.

: Has anybody else gotten 14 day ban for 1 game chat logs?
Greetings. This is nothing unusual, let me explain what happened here: >I thought Riot handed out 1 or couple day bans as a warning, but apparently not. 1 day bans do not exist, the punishment system for verbal misbehavior scales like this: - 1st offense: **10 Game Chat Restriction** - 2nd offense: **25 Game Chat Restriction** - 3rd offense: **14-Day Ban** - 4th offense: **Permanent Ban** However, in extreme cases of toxicity, the Chat Restrictions can be skipped, and it looks like that's exactly what happened to you here... Did you by chance tell someone to kill themselves, used homophobic slurs or different kinds of hate speech?

: About Post Ban (After Ranked Rewards Ineligibility)
This means that the only motivation you had to play ranked was getting a skin and a border once a year?! That's a pretty weird attitude... Usually players join ranked to prove themselves, and test their skill against other people. They're driven by the will to improve, not to get a skin for a champion they most likely don't play a lot.
