We don’t have a lot of info on this right now but we have confirmation that some changes to ranked will be coming at some point, Riot’s Zeigler has confirmed. This is most likely related to the many complaints that there can be a very wide variety of teammate competence regardless of ranking. No decisions have been made yet on exactly what these changes will be made but it sounds like they are considering a complete overhaul of the system.
Hey everyone, on the design side we are currently analyzing the ranking system top to bottom. We’re looking into changes that will improve many aspects of competitive, but have not committed to any solutions yet. Thanks to everyone for their feedback!— Ziegler (@RiotZiegler) August 13, 2020
