The League of Legends dynamic queue is currently down. It used to work perfectly fine, but after five months of development, it has been broken. The game’s developers, Riot, have promised to fix the problem. But will that change make much of a difference to players? It will be interesting to see what Riot does next to make the queue better.
It’s been five months since the release of Dynamic Queue, and still, it’s not working as well as it should. The new system is not only flawed, it prevents the rise of new players. It also reinforces the idea that rank is no longer a measurement of skill. That’s bad for the longevity of League of Legends.
Before the implementation of Dynamic Queue, players could play against other professional players and fight against each other in ranked games. But with this new system, players with potential are left to fight among themselves and are less likely to get noticed by pros. This will make it harder for rising talent to break into the top tier. In addition, it will further widen the gap between challenger and pro players. Since professional players tend to retire in their early to mid 20s, chances of rising players being noticed are significantly diminished.
In League of Legends, the flex queue allows you to play with friends of similar rank, instead of playing solo. This can reduce queue times, and the matchmaking algorithm is more efficient with more players of the same rank. You can join a party with up to five other people in the same queue.
If you’re new to the game, you’ll want to get started by practicing communication skills in the Solo/Duo queue. This mode is the best way to practice your communication skills and game sense. Since you’ll never be grouped with more than one other person, you’ll be able to coordinate with new allies without any hassle. Moreover, you’ll earn a separate rank in the Solo/Duo queue, which is independent of Flex and gives you unique rewards.
The Flex Queue isn’t nearly as popular as Solo Queue, and there are many bot accounts and win-traders. But there’s a silver team in the Flex Queue, and it can easily compete with full Challenger teams.
The dynamic queue was first announced about seven months ago. The idea was to replace the split queue with a dynamic system that focuses on group interaction. The new system was meant to be an experiment, and was treated as such by Riot. It also introduced a cinematic lobby and role selection for champions. While the game has been criticized for its inaccessibility, the dynamic queue still has its benefits.
Players were angry about the queueing system, and it was a common complaint. The problem was that poor players could queue with better players, and get carried up to an artificially high MMR. Riot tried to resolve the problem with tier restrictions, but the changes were not satisfactory. Still, players at high elo complain about the presence of “unskilled” players, and people abusing the system to inflate their MMR. The changes made by Riot to fix the problem have not solved the problem, and players are angry.
Riot’s response to toxic players
The rise of toxic players in League of Legends is a major issue for the game, and Riot is working to address the issue. Toxic players have a negative impact on teammates, and new players are 320% less likely to return to the game after experiencing toxic behavior. Toxic behaviors include racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of hate speech. To combat this issue, Riot has created a sophisticated system for reporting and punishing toxic behavior.
The first update, titled “Behavioral Systems,” aims to reduce disruptive behavior and mitigate the damage caused by repeat offenders. Riot has already rolled out a system to stop intentional feeding, but hopes to expand this system to other areas of toxic behavior.
Return of solo queue
A new feature for League of Legends is coming to the game: the return of the solo queue. Riot Games, the developers of League of Legends, announced that this feature will be available to all players starting with Season 7. Originally, Riot implemented a dynamic queue, which created imbalances and frustration in the game. The company apologized for the situation, but many players are ecstatic to have this option back.
The new feature will allow players to choose their teammates based on their level. The current system requires players to work their way through Divisions and Leagues before they can enter the Solo Queue. A new ladder is reset annually. This change will improve matchmaking for players with different levels.
