How does matchmaking work in League of Legends?

Thats why our matchmaking system focuses on balancing three things each time you queue up: To the matchmaker, a “fair” match is one where each team has a 50% +/-1% chance of winning, which we create by pairing off teams of roughly the same average MMR.

Why do you match me with players I block/mute/report?

Since most players are Silver and below, we tend to start looking in Silver and move them up or down based on their performance. Why do you continue to match me with players I block/mute/report? Short answer: It would literally break matchmaking if we didn’t. Imagine you’re Challenger in KR (congrats) and you come up against Faker in midlane.

Why can’t matchmaking tell me what I am doing?

On top of this, there could be personal factors that matchmaking can’t see—lack of sleep, one too many Graggy Ices, that sorta thing. Depending on how you’re doing, it could just be your perception.

What would happen if matchmaking looked at your MMR?

Matchmaking would have to look at players much further from your MMR because it’s unable to fill a lobby, your queue time would increase, and you’d end up being on consistently less-good teams.

How does the matchmaking system work?

The Matchmaking System works along with a modified version of the Elo system. The basic gist of the Elo system is that it uses math to compare two player ratings to guess the game result – like, Player A will win vs Player B 75% of the time. From there, the game is played. If a player wins, the player gain points.

What is a perfect match in League of Legends?

In a perfect match, ten individuals with identical MMRs queue at the same time, each having selected a unique position that they’re well-suited for. That situation is incredibly rare depending on who is queueing at the time, so sometimes teams can have very slight skill differences (on average, no more than 4-5 MMR).

How does MMR work in League of Legends?

When looking for games to put you in, it will look for other players whose numbers are close to yours. You have a separate MMR in each queue, so you can climb in one queue without it affecting others.

What happens when you play League of Legends again?

When you play again, you’ll get lower LP gains and higher losses, as you are now slightly below the average for your ranking, but as you win a few games, those LP changes will return to normal. We got pretty technical here, but we hope this provided a little more context into matchmaking in League.

How does MMR work in League of Legends?

While every game has a slightly different process for determining your MMR, the basics are roughly the same across the board. Your initial MMR is determined by a series of placement matches, after which it is adjusted based on your win/loss ratio and at the upper ranks your in-game activity level.

What is match making rating (MMR)?

What does it do? Match Making Rating (MMR) also known as Hidden Rating is essentially a system to keep higher ranked people with new teams from running over lower ranked players.

What is your MMR and what is whatismymmr?

Your MMR determines the opponents you play against and is unique for each game mode. WhatIsMyMMR specifically tracks solo non-premade games played in ranked, normal, and ARAM queues. Read more about MMR on Riot’s website.

When does my MMR and TR drop?

The team rating will drop until it reaches the average match-making rating of the teams you beat 50% of the time. For example, if we are matching you against 1200-rated teams, and you are winning half the time, it will drop to 1200. If you are winning 70% of the time against 1200-rated teams, then your MMR and TR should move up to 1433.
