Gold 5. The real story.

  • http://www.twitch.tv/BiracialMage

    Streaming Gold tier solo queue. Doing a promo series to gold 4 now. The link below is for the feeder game from yesterday.




    This is what happens when you cannot drop tiers. This guy asked if the other team would honor him, and now is just intentionally feeding. Come watch me take a free loss.


    EDIT: Here's the video for that match.

    Nice system we've got here.

    You can ask someone to kill someone else in person, doesn't fix that it's against the law...

    Sorry, I don't have a useful comment on your original post (which is a good post), but Yegg may.

    Aw man, that must have been terrible

    Here's a couple things:

    • Honor doesn't offset reports. It's possible to receive a permaban during the honor crest animation. These systems don't interact for this very reason - they are not different sides of the same coin. Don't worry about trolls getting honor - they get it stripped immediately on punitive measures and it will not stay the hand of justice.

    • You are not necessarily only matched with people who are Gold 5 - you are still matched with people who are close to your Matchmaking Rating (even if that's someone in platinum who's been losing too much lately, or a silver player who keeps flubbing a promotion series). The "gold 5" is a red herring in this case.

    • The tribunal hungers for this summoner. Thirsts, even.

    Its stomach is growling, prepared for the hapless summoner to be thrown into the near-bottomless pit.
