    I'm just curious

    How does playing with a stack affect your resultant ELO change from a win loss. I used to (~3 weeks ago?) play high MMR games I would run into streamers/teams and have legit lanes/teamcomps. I recently took a protracted break from solo queue to play with/teach with some RL friends who just joined.

    Needless to say, we got matched with some ridiculous games and I lost (and won) vs. some really terrible ELO players (Vlads/MoM Riki sort of thing probably 1500 ELO sort of thing) -- but how do those wins and losses affect my ELO compared with solo queue. Going back to solo queue (as well as continuing to play with my very bad friends) I find myself dropped to my first "high" solo game in like 14 months.

    I look forward to playing with the new matchmaker -- queuing with my sub 20 game friends has been a bit of a nightmare with us getting matched vs. 5 300+ win players while I'm trying to explain how stuns work.

    I really cannot say that I notice a difference in the matchmaking system. It seems just as random as ever. I don't know what ELO players start out with and I'm not sure what my ELO is nor what a good ELO level is. But what's important is that I'm matchmade with the right skill level players. I can really only become better at the game if I play against the toughest opponents I can handle.

    A match like this is a reason we need to know who that new player is so we can try to plan accordingly. For example I would discourage this new player from playing as our carry if he has issues last hitting. And maybe the new player will see he is the weakest link and plan accordingly himself even. "Oh shit, I'm going to get fucked if I try to carry this game."

    Maybe there could be a colored circle next to each person's name showing relative rank? Green being the most skilled player in that match and red being the worst, for example.

    If people are worried about being noob shamed or something that's going to happen regardless! They will figure out who this 'noob' is eventually 'after it's too late and they've decided to go carry and have 7 LH and 5 deaths by 10 min', it's better to put all your cards on the table straight away.

    Problem with that is everyone wants to carry.

    Problem with that is that people will flame you based on rank, which is the reason ELO isn't public

    My smurf with <10 wins got matched with 400-1000+ win players. I'd say it's doing a pretty good job.

    One thing I do not understand is, why after a lot of crap games I have one, one super fun match with good and friendly teammates?
    Is this a result of the matchmaking or the nature of this game (people being dicks, childish community, etc)?

    rather tell us "who to avoid" in our own party to get more balanced matches. That way you could choose between high quality games and getting completely trashed by having your "noob" feeding with the carry or making them snowball out of control aka teaching new players how to play role x.
