This patch we made some improvements to the way that ratings are calculated for newly created Ranked Teams. For reference, you can view my original post, here .
To sum up, as of this patch teams created by highly skilled players will no longer start out with extremely high ratings, and, as a result, these teams will now have to play more games to reach the top of the ladder. Along with these changes, we will also be adjusting the ratings of current teams on the live ladders. This is to ensure that newly created teams have the opportunity to compete against teams that were created before these changes were in effect. Here's what you can expect:
- All teams will maintain their same position on the ladder. For example, a team that was currently holding the 35th position in the ladder before this rescaling will still remain in 35th place after the rescaling is complete.
- Teams that have a rating above 1400 can expect their rating to decrease.
- Teams that have a rating below 1000 can expect to see their rating increase.
- Teams with a rating between 1000 and 1400 will remain unaffected.
We will keep an eye on the effects these changes have on the League of Legends Ranked Team Ladder and will continue making adjustments and improvements as needed.
