The last 3 ranked games I played only consisted of a few toxic players in one of them (my Cass game).
My early game was beyond horrible, but I kept thinking to myself, "bring it to late game, and we'll be ok". We ended up winning 3 consecutive team fights in a row post 35 minutes, and we pushed for the win. I'm sure I was still reported for something, but it was still good to see my team actually thought long term instead of giving up completely after 20-25 minutes.
I do have to say the honor system has cleaned up a lot of messy attitudes, and overall given the game a better feel. It's much nicer now seeing people in the 1100-1500 elo range think long term when the going gets rough. Communication is drastically better as well.
Thanks Riot. I actually enjoy queuing for ranked now.
