Does the match making system pair a majority of "same skilled" players in games or does it attempt to put as many people into games as possible? Because I would rather wait a few extra minutes to have allies and opponents who are at the same skill as I am, rather than losing a game because I have two allies that are new to the game and the other team only has one.
the "Matchmaking by Zileas" part.
There was a topic a few days ago by some level 12 player complaining about 10-15 minute queues and then getting matched in a team with 4 level 30 players.
When I looked him up at http://www.lolstatistics.com , it listed him having a 1.79:1 win:loss ratio at level 11.
So if your win ratio is high enough, matchmaking won't find enough players of similar rating and level and after some queue time starts matching you with higher level players.

Wait? The horrible casting delay alone isn't enough?
(See a lone enemy, press W on that champion, see that the whole enemy team is there and watch helplessly as your Maokai moves to the middle of the enemy team without a possibility of canceling the move...
