  • [Suggestion] Player Skill Assessment

    Anyone else interested in having a simple 1-5 rating option after the game to help the MM estimate this player's skill?

    €dit: like this
    $Player did fit the actual level of this game:
    totally agree: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 totally disagree

    I mean I really dont mind if someone is bad at the game but takes advice and tries his best, but what do you ever do against someone who is not listenting and straight "destroying" the game by getting killed ridiculously often/ganked because always farming alone in enemy jungle etc... - Obviously the current report system is only made to report insulting and/or abusive behaviour - while i can perfectly ignore flamers i can not do so with bad players who wont listen to any piece of advice you give because they just do not care at all and just wanna "do whatever"

    T-Down. This presumes the person is an adequate judge at rating his/herself, which is a large part of the problem. Unless you are completely new, most people I feel will overestimate their abilities at the game and judge others in relation to themselves. Too many people don't know when to push, when to farm, when/where to ward, etc. And if they don't know, how can they possibly be a valid judge for others?
