His Nixon Now account is at sub 300 elo....placement match throwing ftw. I thought he was at 1200 or something on it. No idea he's THAT pathetically low. No wonder he always gets first blood in every game. Now I know why I can only do the same about 50% of the time as Syndra.
I think its pretty sad that he has to drop down that low to make himself feel better about beating people.
Why doesnt he just stay at 1200 where it really isnt as simple.
Because he enjoys streaming low ELO games and generally pointing out how silly it is to believe in ELO hell
How is having very high elo players stomping people way below their skill level (like 95%+ of their games) anything but hell?
I don't believe in elo hell in the traditional sense, but what he does sucks for a lot of people. And for the people who say "He streams it and he points out mistakes they make so it's educational!", he doesn't get a whole lot of viewers on his stream. A couple hundred at most. And the majority of his viewers (hell, if he's got an account below 300, I'd be confident saying all of his viewers) are at a higher elo than the players he's playing with, so they theoretically won't be learning much that they don't already know. If he wants to be educational, he should be aiming to help his audience. You wouldn't teach standard college students elementary school material.
