Wish Ranking would be based on individual scores and skills instead of wins.

Why do they base it on wins and losses to go up and down in rank? What if there's a good player in bronze and they keep losing because of noob teammates?

Why not just make it based on kills/deaths/assists?

And what I mean by this is, for support champs, they should be counting Death/Assist ratio as well. basically, Assists+kills/death ratio is what should be looked at. A Soraka with 0/4/17 can be put on the same lvl as an Ashe with 15/6/3.

And if you're not getting the kills, then you're getting assists. Either way, you should be judged with a positive score so long as you're not feeding. If your score is 1/2/1 in a 40 min game, then you deserve to be lowered in rank since you're obviously not contributing to the team.

Because there are 5 different roles in the game and none is expected to obtain the same KDA.

Just because you have decent KDA doesn't automatically make you a good player. A great support could have a terrible KDA but due to his/her play he/she could feed and protect her stupid ADC so that the ADC could get a good KDA. If ranking was based on KDA , a 0/5/15 support that makes play to protect and feed his/her carry would be ranked lower to a 15/0/0 ADC that only knows how to right click a target.

KDA doesn't tell you everything about a player's skill. Only idiots look at KDA to brag how good they are.

It's not based on KDA because this isn't TDM.

They should post something like this as a warning before you play the game.
