Before you accuse me of putting my personal fun over nine others, I am talking about ranked queue for one, which is highly competitive if you didn't know. I never, I repeat NEVER, abuse the 'dodge mechanic' to troll or waste others' time. It was actually my first dodge since S3 began. You are being unreasonable, and also quite immature for resorting to insults before using logical argument. I was merely asking a question. Please, next time contribute something more meaningful to my thread.
I didn't insult anyone; my response was quite logical in fact. You thought that your team was at a disadvantage, and so you tried to game the system by leaving the queue. That is in direct contrast to the whole premise of Elo/LP, that you are paired in a random game with nine random strangers and the system sees how much you improve the chance of your team to win. The system inherently fails when you decide to not play certain games because you think your team will probably lose. Thus, you are punished an amount of LP to compensate for the fact that you tried to game the system to avoid losing LP.
On top of that, think of the time you wasted. By the time the Champ Select process was almost finished, somewhere in the neighbourhood of 3(10s)+10(30s)=330s=5.5 minutes went by. Nine other people in the game, so you wasted a total of 49.5 minutes of other people's time, in order to save yourself 20 minutes of a game that might be unenjoyable. Seem fair to you?
