I'm sorry riot, but the majority of my real life friends and about half of my friends list has quit this game in the last couple of weeks awaiting this patch, and i haven't played a game for almost a week either.
What you have done only caters to people who were unranked in the first place, or were below 1500 or something and casual players.
Removing elo has lost the addictive nature of this game, and the motivation for most people to play. Imagine this: most youngsters these days really do relate that elo number to their self worth.
Whoever made this idea might be the cause of a lot of you losing jobs at riot, and perhaps the end of this game.
I guess I shouldn't be complaining, i'm graduating university this year and it's very tough, and this game was holding me back from accomplishing what I needed to from life.
Still though, I cannot believe you guys would think this wouldn't ruin your game.
