If you’ve ever played League of Legends, you know that autofill is a necessary evil. However, it can lead to long wait times for matches, especially in the mid-tiers and high ELO regions. It also tends to put players in places they’re not necessarily eligible for. This is one of the reasons many players feel strongly against autofill. However, it is not the only problem that comes with autofill.
Riot wants to reduce autofill rates
If you are one of the countless League of Legends players who don’t like the autofill system, you’re not alone. The system is known to be one of the most frustrating aspects of the game. Not only does it take nine people out of the queue at once, but it also encourages players to switch to smurf accounts. That’s why Riot wants to reduce autofill rates, and they’re testing a new system to fix it.
Adding new filters for premade groups would be a great start, and Riot says they are considering it. This would improve the premade queue and improve matchmaking in general. If Riot does make this change, it hopes to make Ranked Flex favored by more players and reduce autofill rates.
This new system is also likely to reduce the time it takes to find matches. Players who play only one role can have a hard time finding a match. The autofill feature is meant to help people find matches faster, but it can cause frustrations. It can cause players to lose the match or perform poorly.
The current algorithm isn’t up to the standards that Riot wants, and it has been criticized for a long time. The team at Riot Games has outlined a list of changes to improve autofill rates. The changes will affect players who queue as fills, support, and priority roles. Riot wants to reduce autofill rates to the point that they aren’t as bad as they used to be.
