Yea cause you know, **** elo decay that **** never works. Lol Riot thought of this a loooong time ago.
Secondly I didn't play ranked in season 1 until I had almost 500 normal game wins. Even though I never played ranked I was still better than you could ever hope to be. My normal game elo was so high I faced gold and plat players all the time. When I finally decided to play ranked I shot straight to the mid 1400's and didn't really play much that season so I never climbed up much more than that. In season 2 I managed to hang around the 1600's and even then I still barely played ranked or tried. Yet I am and always was better than you and many other ranked tryhards.
Anyways rant aside and to the threads point, I have advocated this for over a year now. I always tell people who are 1250 that they are actually better than the norm and they should feel proud of themselves. I hate when I talk to other players and they either say, elo doesn't mean anything or 1500 is low elo. Guess what elo does mean something and 1500 is high elo not low. Just because the rating go up to 2600 doesn't mean the majority of the population is up there.
