League of Legends Rank Distribution in solo queue - February | Esports Tales
Matchmaking is the existing automated process in League of Legends that matches a player to and against other players in games. The system estimates how good a player is based on whom the player beats and to whom the player loses. It knows pre-made teams are an advantage, so it gives pre-made teams tougher opponents than if each player had queued alone or other premades of a similar total skill level Riot Games Inc. The basic concept is that the system over time understands how strong of a player you are, and attempts to place you in games with people of the same strength. As much as possible, the game tries to create matches that are a coin flip between players who are about the same skill.
Explaining League of Legends’ ranked system
Matchmaking can seem like a mysterious and sometimes cruel part of League of Legends , but players should hopefully have a better insight into how the system works following an entire dev post dedicated to the topic. The Rioter admitted that the team knows the matchmaking system will never be entirely perfect, but Riot Gortok and others went on to explain other matchmaking details while debunking some myths along the way. It can also feel like these allies appear at the least opportune times, but getting bad teammates like these at critical times is just an urban myth, for the most part. We think this is the right tradeoff compared to having a volatile rank—being demoted feels rough, and reaching a tier should be a decent indication that you can play at that level. This is due to MMRs between different queues being completely separate from each other, says designer Riot Socrates, which means that a high-ranked player can have a lower MMR in normal games.
League of Legends is most famous for its 5v5 games on Summoner's Rift, but the game actually has more than the one game mode. Twisted Treeline has given a 3v3 game mode for a long time, and with the recent reworking, it is actually a completely different type of game. Riot also made such a big deal about launching their Dominion game type a while back they ended up with disappointed fans, but the game mode has stayed around and sees regular play still. What has been around even longer and gotten less direct attention are the game modes players have come up with for the custom games. Everyone lets their champion be randomly selected, and no one is allowed to leave mid lane, not even to return back to the shop.
