Our team also went through something similar. None of us have played ranked teams before, after our 5th game we were at 4-1 and 1080-something ELO. We queued our 6th game and the team we ended up against stomped us really bad and were clearly of higher skill than we were. We checked out their stats after cuz we were wondering why and noticed they were ranked 2nd best in the whole ladder.
Relaxes the matchmaking over time? We only queued ONE MINUTE and it matched us against a TOP team. What kind of system allows inexperienced teams that are just starting to play against the highest ranked ones?
(maybe i should also mention that their Irelia was completely immune to our CC for no reason, not reduced: unaffected. Our top lane lost to her for the sole reason that Galio and Kennen could not stun or taunt her at all)
