    Hillarious. People make stupid decisions and queue with bad players, and are surprised they get thrown into a bad game

      Ok; hopefully you'll read into it more than into OP/this thread...

Why was I paired with 4 complete noobs??!?!". You go into matchmaking with 4 players well under your skill level then complain the game is not matched well. Do you honestly not see anything wrong your complaint OP?
      Maybe it's hard to notice, but whenever someone comes on these forums and complains about being matched with '4 noobs' he usually means that there were literally 4 noobs in the game, all on his team. The typical whiner also usually says that the enemy team was playing much better than the newblings of his, so if the matchup was as you described he'd be rather fine with it if it didn't happen consistently.
      Besides a large number of complaints about MM are and will always be invalid. Not to defend the system, but usually the ones that are the most angry with it are those who aren't matched up that badly.
      OP's game was obviously badly matched and your post was arguing against the only right way to match that game ie. doing something stupid. YW

      Many people here act like they've never seen it before.

        BTW i'm lina

        TRY WATCHING THE REPLY BEFORE SAYING SHIT
        I could have won this game effortlessly if I were Lina by going 1/8/18 KDA with 10 creeps last hits and 4 denies, average gold per minute probably 281, average XP per minute: 381

          you've probably had even worse games but in those u might have been the one feeding and a teammate of yours was trolling.
          So im not really sure why u posted this , to tell us "hey im so above the others with my skill level but i lost the game cuz my teammates were noobs" or u simply raged

            I get what you're saying, you are right in that the game would be more balanced. My point though is that the person on the other team would be frustrated at his own team members for being noobs and possibly vent on here. Sure they would be against noobs as well, but people see the negatives rather than the positives. I have seen it consistently. One player in the team is pro, the rest noobs, but unfortunately they lose because the pro picked a support not knowing the other players on their team were bad.

            My personal preference is that I would rather be in a team of friends that are bad, matched against better players. Rather then being on the other team, paired with noobs just because it would make a fairer match. Why should I be punished for the other teams decision to queue together?

                      Perhaps we should close this thread now.

                      It's of no value to the development of the game and has turned into people queuing up to take a pop at the OP.
                      To avoid LPQ:

                      Don't draw attention to yourself
                      Don't use voice or chat except for 'ss'
                      Mute all at lvl 1
                      Only play in parties
                      Get alternate accounts
                      Limit your usage to one or two games per day per account
                      Don't play too well
                      Don't play on Sunday or Monday
                      Wait until the developers reset LPQ status

                      If you're getting matched with trolls or feeders:

                      You may have been placed in a hidden pool. There is no known way out of this, apart from moving to a different account.
