After facing nearly an entire season of complaints, lead game play designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter and designer Jonathan “IAmWalrus” Moormann responded to high elo players’ concerns with matchmaking fairness. Scruffy and IAmWalrus didn’t disclose exactly what Riot is planning to do, but the general idea is that in exchange for longer queue times, matchmaking will be adjusted to group skilled players with teammates closer to their MMR. A change like this would likely be implemented closer to Preseason, since it could drastically affect those making the final push to reach their ranked goals at the end of Season Nine. At the beginning of Season Nine, the ranked ladder faced serious issues of inconsistent and absurdly high LP gains, as well as unbalanced teams in matchmaking. This was partially due to the introduction of positional ranks, but was also attributed to the addition of the Grandmaster rank and swap to four tiers per rank. Riot responded to this problem by implementing a ladder reset in March for players ranked Diamond IV and above and removing positional ranks. Even after a potential solve was implemented, however, disparities in the matchmaking system continue to persist. High elo players and pros alike have been incredibly vocal about their frustrations. Riot plans to run thorough tests on the new system, so the issue can be solved properly.

When Riot announced last year that they would be implementing positional matchmaking into the League of Legends ranked queues in Season 9, they were met with a mix of skepticism and couched optimism. While many immediately saw flaws and possible exploits that such a system could offer, others hoped that it would be a solution to the complaints of poor matchmaking that plagued Season 8.
Instead, we got the worst of both worlds.
3 is expected this Tuesday, and its main change is fixing the game’s economy. As previously announced by Riot, acquiring cards will be more.
LoL if you think you got it bad, try playing with me in bronze. Would probably draw more viewers than an OWL homestead. Vlog of several of them boxing things up and being escorted off the campus. Well it certainly is broken. That was never the fault of the matchmaker, though. That was always the fault of poor player choice. The same thing happened when I tried it with Widowmaker, I played and won 5 in a row with Widow, popping, enemy team never had 1… then 4 out of the 5 next games the enemy team always had a Widow, who was pretty damn good, literally it was battle of the Widows all game.
Matchmaker is a joke I agree. I picked up Ashe, improved my aim quite a bit. Instead of ranking up… i start noticing the enemy team now has a hit scan with better aim than i ever remember seeing in the past.

The devs promised its return in a few weeks and many expected that patch 1. Even Riot themselves included a competitive mode update in the official notes. Today Riot gave fans another update on Twitter which mentioned some issues surrounding the ranked mode.
The big Valorant tech interview: Riot on developing the next big competitive FPS
Hey everyone, on the design side we are currently analyzing the ranking system top to bottom. Thanks to everyone for their feedback! Competitive matchmaking has been a source of resentment for many players of Riot’s tactical shooter since the mode’s release in late June.
Hopefully this article can help prevent any such issues or provide a solution if the issue has already occurred. If you’ve tried the troubleshooting fix above (equipping one of your guardians), and you still receive a Matchmaking Error, please League of Legends and Riot Games Inc. are trademarks or.
I think with a post like this people don’t want to waste time reading stuff so I’m going to be quick then put the data, I’ll put my thoughts on it afterwards. Below is a table showing the data collected by looking at the last 20 games played by each of the top players on the EUW, NA and KR servers. I looked at the tier average for each of those 20 games and recorded the frequency split by server. I also took the amount of time each player took to play their last 20 games and averaged it to get a value for roughly how many games the top players on each server are playing a day.
So even to someone who doesn’t know what this means I think it’s fairly obvious that the numbers for Europe look very different to the relatively similar stats for Korea and North America. I think to most people on this subreddit however the table should be fairly self explanatory. The only misunderstanding I could see happening is that these numbers do not reflect the actual number of games happening. For example the 4 data points for European challenger MMR games does not equal 4 different games.
In fact 3 of those data points are from the same game. Which means there are only 2 games I could find which could reasonably be called a Challenger MMR game. You can take a look at them here.

Riot Games Opens Up About Matchmaking in League of Legends Riot has worked to fix.
Just as VALORANT fans were beginning to become frustrated with competitive queues , the devs released a blog update addressing the recent outrage, and why they won’t be changing up the queues anytime soon. Vanguard updates. Let’s get into it. Why not a true solo queue? Fielding went on to suggest that competitive VALORANT gameplay is based on teamplay, and they want to encourage having a group of friends to play and grow with.
Having a solo queue can easily lead to that becoming the definitive test of someone’s skills and the primary way to play competitively.
Riot: Don’t ban your players, reform them
We’ve got details on progress we’ve made, our next projects, and early preseason explorations. Welcome back! In late February we talked about our plans for Ranked in Today we’ll revisit those goals, provide an update on what we’ve done so far, and reveal some big changes that are making their way to you soon. Buckle up!
Again, I’m Cody “Riot Codebear” Germain, Product Lead for Competitive covers the interactions you have with other players during your matches: The new matchmaking algorithm will be finding its way to ranked queues.
Some Redditors immediately , stating that the support team tends to give out wrong information via ticket responses and no one would likely take the statement seriously if another Rioter didn’t swoop in, claim the information was false, and the thread got locked by a moderator with an explanation that the title contained inaccurate information. Now, the information SapMagic provided in the states that MMR changes only happen based on each team’s MMR ratings and the outcome of the game, be it a win or a loss.
Reddit Riot Games support. SapMagic’s info could have some merit as better grades would be incentive to pad the stats during a match, which is a process that could ruin teammates’ experience. But then again, if grades indeed impacted MMR and under assumption that no one knew about the interaction, it could provide a more accurate matchmaking system. That said, there are two questions that Riot Games didn’t answer, and possibly dodged. First, why is Leaver Buster not up to the task, since it even though they reconnected and carried their team?
