Please reduce the starting off hidden ELO for 1st time ranked players from 1200 to the 900 range. It doesn't make sense having it that high.
After clawing my way up from that range to 1193 I got farmed down 10 games in a row because I kept getting matched with people with less than 10 ranked games played who didn't understand meta at all and weren't open to any help or suggestions. Worse yet, these people were 1st pick and I usually had to support someone who has no idea what they're doing and at the same time couldn't carry the game myself.
Funny thing is, after getting farmed down, and not having the "1200 elo" players in my games, my teammates were consistently better and I started climbing again... This has happened twice...
TL;DR THE NEW PLAYER RANKED ELO IS TOO **** HIGH!
