I don’t know why but the difference between a 2500+ player and anyone below that is so obvious. The number of mistakes being made and how bad a player it becomes so easy to see. I probably had one of the most tilting matches to date.

As you can see the balancing between the players is ok as the game expects me to be able to contest the 2 VG players and one player who has come back after a while.
I played CP BF top which I guess is a pretty off-meta pick but I go 22/8/10 and if I were to honor someone it would be the Flicker. And that sounds kind of sad, doesn’t it? Another melee hero being honored instead of the other people who are ranged and supposed to hypercarry? The mid CP Vox had the option to choose Lyra or Varya, but chooses Vox and goes 2/10/15. Then you have the bot lane Gwen who isn’t able to apply any pressure at all despite being a player on a team in the summer open. LIKE . Goes 9/6/10 but if I have 20 kills then she should have 30 because I am the top laner and she is the bot laner. And the jungler was so bad I won’t even mention the hero the person was playing.
The best part is: we weren’t losing. In fact we could have ended the game after getting an ACE but since all the lower tier players don’t know how to win games they went from BC while me and the Gwen went for the exposed vain crystal. Gwen doesn’t buy defense items so she gets blown up by Tony A and since I don’t have my Ult and really bad objective clear, Tony Ult literally throws me across the base into the enemy fountain. I can’t tell if the person did the perfect Ult or the game is rigging the match because I’ve been having a good win to lose ratio in soloq.
Now it’s kind of stupid how these players are POA and SA. Sometimes there are actual things to learn from losing matches but playing this game is becoming more of a chore rather than something fun. Having to carry AFKs, people who can’t play, and people who can’t play. The best part is I lose 8 ELO which is the equivalent to winning two matches as a penta q or 2 matches as soloq :^). I go after IraqiZorro’s penta q and lose because I’m playing Joule top who was supposed to be a fun pick but her B bugs out even though I land it. Best part is that Baron loses lane pre 6 minutes and Varya keeps going afk.
Stupid rant but SEMC please fix ELO system.
