As I understand it, as soon as season 2 comes, all elo will be reset. Everyone starts at 1200 again. That doesn't seem fair at all to me and I'm sure a lot of people are going to agree with me on this one. Personally, I worked my ass off for the rating that I have and I'd like to keep it.
I understand the fact that Riot wants to give everyone a second chance but why are we punished for it, we who have over 1200? Are you telling me that we are equal to those who just got to lvl 30 and started playing 2 weeks ago? Or the ones that trolled their way to 500 rating just because they can? Or those that have no idea what a ward is and how it's used? I refuse to believe that. I got to where I am on my own merit, I did not get carried by anyone. Well that's technically wrong, I main support so you could say they carried me.
And by maining support, I find myself in a bit of a bad situation. What if I get paired with complete morons (the kind that most people whine on these forums about) ? It won't matter that I try to babysit their ass and ward the whole **** map, they are going to feed and lose matches. And if this happens, is this where I truly belong? Is the ONLY solution out of elo hell carrying?
And yes, I am scared that I'll drop into elo hell not because I suck at the game (having 1800+ rating proves this to an extent) but because this game is solely based on picks and early game.
If possible, can a red explain the whole situation and Riot's reasoning for saying "you are the same as everyone even if you proved you are better once".
Discuss/hate/downvote (as I'm sure most will) away.
