        How are you judging what is even?
        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.

          1. Does someone on my team have sub-50 wins?
          2. If yes, am I willing to take my chances and spend 40 minutes playing a game with him?

          Usual answer: No, let's spend two minutes finding a different game instead.

            People talking in another language, check other players profiles for win rates/regions.

              there are two ways of dodging a game:

              1. if the search bar exceeds 5 minutes - dodging or declining
              2. voluntarily abandoning (while the game is loading) after checking teammates' wins


              technically, i only decline. I don't abandon games.
