New League System in Ranked

Unnecessary. Riot is only making this change so the baddies don't feel so bad about being stuck in sub-1200s.

guess they will wipe elo again with this system, as it is 250 per tier other than bottom

Oh boy, SC2 ladder.

I'm actually kind of looking forward to this, might actually have to bother with ranked again for the first time in forever. Wonder how lolking is going to adapt.

"If you’ve played at least five ranked team games or 10 solo/duo games in the preseason, a combination of your current and top Elo rating will determine the tier of the league you initially earn."

Basically it's the old system but ELO is hidden and you can never drop down below a tier. If you were to apply this to ELO, if you made it past 1500, you can never drop below 1500 and if you get past 1600, etc. etc.

Old system but easier for baddies to get up the ranking ladder.

Not past 1600 and further though. It's league based, not division. So there will be people who get Elo boosts up to Gold ranking, and then are stuck forever at 1500. But if they get all the way up to 1899 (Is 1900 Plat? I don't remember) they can still fall all the way back to 1500.

Also, I'm not so certain that your hidden Elo wouldn't still drop. I'm not exactly sure how this would work though.

So someone bad at the game could have been carried in their placement matches to gold and be stuck there to feed for all eternity. Nice -_- Not sure why they wouldn't have the same thing as the promotion series at the bottom of each league too to see who stays and who goes.

there's still apparently a matchmaking rating, so that guy that got boosted far beyond his actual skill level and feeds at bottom-division constantly will be matched with people of appropriate skill.

and gain like 2 points per match until he's back on par.

'least, if I'm reading the details correctly.

Yeah:

I think that goes to the specific post. Otherwise:

"Matchmaking will continue to match you based on a hidden MMR (matchmaking rating) that's tracked behind the scenes. If you are continually losing matches at the bottom of Gold tier, you'll start to play against Silver players even though you're in a Gold league.

There are a lot of checks and balances that must be passed before you can move up a tier, so we don't think that it will be common for players to be in this situation (with the exception of something like Elo boosting, which we'll be continuing to address)."

Even if you're in a Gold division, you can still drop down to facing Bronze players. It's just terribly terribly difficult for you to get back to any forward progress in your League, and you CERTAINLY aren't winning a Division Series.
