I have been playing ranked quite a lot since its launch and i have various friends from immortal 1 down to silver 3.
I'm going to keep this short as its mostly a rant but why the fuck can RIOT not match people of equal rank? Plat 1 should be playing with/against gold3 to plat2 when solo queueing.
Why when i solo queue do i get put into a game with silvers when im now plat 1.. Its almost like RIOT's entire rank mode just takes somebodys rank and does some basic addition like plat 1 + gold 3 = plat 2.. When that clearly is fucking stupid.
There are so many fundemental problems with ranked that its almost impossible to enjoy it longterm. I am a former global elite/supreme CSGO player with over 12years in the cs community.
I get match MVP in pretty much every single game win or lose yet im plat 1 stuck playing with silvers and golds and the occasional diamond 2?
When i play with my diamond+ friends i still get MATCH MVP yet they get greatly increase and i just get increase?
Is my ELO just fucked from playing with my lower level friends? or has RIOT completely fucking lost all concept of what makes a decent ranked mode. Simply adding more ranks is a fucking lazy fix for a problem. Its not sufficient
