1515 last night and now I'm back in Silver II...how awesome. That's enough of this game, not playing my way out of all the trolls, afk's, etc again. No thanks. Good luck to all with the new system, but fuck that I don't have the sanity to deal with silver rage again. Hope nobody else got screwed in their new league!

I'm curious... Was 1515 your highest or current (at the time) rating?
Because I was at 1467 (current) and 1487 (max) or so and I ended up in Silver I.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that Gold in S2 and S3 doesn't have to same requirements. I thought everyone already knew that... But the quote below suggests otherwise.

1. There was an assumption that the formula was simply an average of current and top rating, but it was more complicated than that. We won't be disclosing the exact formula used for seeding. I can confirm that it did take top rating into account in a meaningful way.
2. The rating requirements for League seeding were never intended to be the same as the Season 2 requirements. They were determined automatically based on your position relative to the ranked population of your server. This is actually why we set everyone's medal to the provisional medal last patch; we wanted to indicate that 1500 wasn't necessarily Gold any more, and 1850 wasn't necessarily Platinum, etc.
You get like 40~ league points per win so its only 3ish wins and then a series before you will be where you were. Nothing really changed other than the representation of your rating, if you play like you did before you'll end up where you should be. You act like the players somehow get less shitty attitudes once you're gold rating, lol.
i dont like the new system... as I understand it its much harder to get prometed then to drop to the last level... startet out yesterday being first in IV Division with Three wins or so then dropped in the same evening to V with near zero points.... so how i will i get 100 points now and then win 2 out of three... seems unrealistic to win that many in a row with all that feeders and afk guys... seems like V will be quite crowded soon while the other division merly consists of 10 players
You are at where you are supposed to be. Just because you were gold last season doesn't mean you were automatically going to be gold with this new system. Could have found that out before the patch even released when they said that the requirements wouldnt be the same.
Also, don't blame trolls for your losses. It happens to everyone now and then, but if you are losing every game in a division or close to every game, I'll give you a hint: some of that is probably you too.
i climb my way out of elo hell just before s3 now they put me back to 5th bronze like how the fuck iam supose to get out of here ? even if i go 14/0/~ i cant carry 4 retard that lag and trolls, time to lvl a other account to 30
I've won 3 matches and went in the series, lost that, was put back at 83 LP. Win another, get in another series and win that one, get promoted to plat1.
I love how after that promotion, i lost two in a row, but didn't lose anything. And still won 4 games to get in yet another BoX. It's like really fast to get to those.
Oh, and, "elo hell" either doesn't exist, or exists for the whole ladder. Realistically, if you don't troll/dc/feed, the odds are in your favor, and you should climb. Yes, even in 2k elos (or plat divisions now), you still get leavers, feeders, DCs, etc.
With the new ranking system i might finally start to play ranked again. Had a few bad experiences and ofc the retards will always be a factor, but i am liking what i have seen so far. Going to give it a week or so before i do try it though.
