    I feel you bro, when I play solo I seem to get decent/good people but with my friends I see shit like Tryndamere support and on and an abundance of teemo players.

    Treeston and I were playing a few on EUNE and he instantly noticed how bad the normals were on EUNE and I was like, "Bro, blind pick normals are meh and who even cares about them". He was astounded to see that they didn't follow meta game in the blind pick normals. I just told him it didn't really matter. Still funny how an EUW player was that amazed about it.

    The fuck, what kind of normals do you people play in? I have seen my share of bad players and self-countering, but it's been several months since a team lacked a jungler or lanes got picked completely wrong.

    Nobody cares in blind pick on EUNE, I don't play bots so I just choose whoever I want to practice with and that's how I get better with different champions.

    Oh, blind pick. I guess it might be funny, have not played blind pick since I hit 30.

    I only use it for practice. No other reason.

    They do. Just not at '800 normal elo'. Check some of the featured streamed games if you wish to be convinced any further.

    WTF, why doesn't that happen to me? Every time I play with my, uhm... "less experienced" friends, we only get crazy good opponents and everything goes to hell.

    Maybe I'm just unlucky. Though I do have a rep for just that.

    Crazy good opponents, or just people that shut down your friends really well?

    It's because your avatar is Rubick, they think you're a pro DotA player so you get good opponents! Just kidding lol

    The latter tends to happen with my friends, they just lose to enemies who aren't even THAT good. (Like an enemy adc with 50 cs at 18 minutes and so on).
    *Sigh*

    It's mostly the latter. Most people with less experience don't know how to play defensively, they end up feeding them and the only way to win is to stall it until we can catch up and beat them.

    Goes to show how OP Lulu is on Dom. Okay, I didn't go really beastmode or anything, but it felt like I had so much control over the course of the game that it's just silly.

    It's easy to just check the profile of people you play against to find a rough estimate of your Normal ELO (Try to do it over a period of time though so you get actual samples). I tend to usually (There are always exceptions, though, matchmaking isn't perfect and consistent) play against people in 1600-1800 in Normals, and when I duo que with friend (80% of the time I play) it goes from 1700-2000ish due to ELO inflating a bit when you duo.

    it worked a lot better last season since people had played ranked games. I tend to go off of their border if they don't have a rating showing, but sometimes you get people with the silver border that actually have a plat rating or something.
