Riot really needs some sort of system that stops people from being screwed over in ranked. I lose just about every ranked game, going positive, and winning my lane. I shouldn't be punished for that, putting my ELO lower, and placing me with players that are even more terrible than the ones I'm already with. I just got out of a game where a player went 0-15 in ranked, followed by 2 more games where at least 2 players go 5-10 or worse. Honestly they shouldn't have the option to play ranked. After having such a bad performance on a consistent basis, the player should be banned from ranked until they prove they can handle a more competitive level. I only play games for the competitive aspect, and this completely ruins the game for me, and makes me want to not even play. Its a waste of my time if I'm going into 40 minute plus games, and having teammates that still don't know the basics of the game. Not to mention, there's no way around playing the full game, no one ever surrenders in ranked, and id get punished more than i already am if i left. Seems like the games meant more toward casual players than competitive players, even in ranked playlists. The only way I can actually enjoy playing, is with a real life friend who has the same mindset, but he refuses to play ranked without me. Together we've never lost a ranked game because we can count on each other to carry, which of course is the case in every game we've played. I think there needs to be some more major changes, the games still not close to where it needs to be.
