I am level 50. My experience with matchmaking this week is completly horrible. Yesterday I had 6 GD matches almost back to back where I had two players on my team go completly negative with 0 kills 12 or more deaths. These players had no idea what they were doing, and it's fine to be new or bad at the game. My problem is that these players had no idea what an assist ping was or sounded like, no idea what a danger/caution ping was or sounded like, and had no idea how to play at all whatsoever, they ran from every single fight even if it was in our favor.
I know the matchmaking was tweaked to allow for faster que pops but this is just horrific. I will not play as a level 50 with players who do not even know the basics assit or danger pings. I just alt + F4'd from a match because I pinged for the top laner to assist me at least 15 times and he didn't even move a muscle, and it was an obvious play, their jungler and I were fighting at the top jungle camp RIGHT NEXT TO HIM (from full health). He didn't respond for 20 seconds or so like he was blind and death or something.
Many players have had similar experiences with bad players or new players. I know my MMR is nowhere near this guys MMR, and it's fine to lose a lane or two in a match as expected, but the enemy team were just regular non-pro players and this is an outrage.
I refuse to play matches where it looks like players never even made it through the tutorial or never played that champion. Something needs to be done here, you can't allow brand new players to straight up que for matches and ruin the experience for people who are trying to have a normal game, these players contribute nothing, never attack, never assist, never respond to pings, and always run from everything or just dive in 1v5 and die all the time. Now we know they aren't trying to feed intentionally, but they are just new to the game and have no idea what they are doing.
TL;DR- Please implement easier to understand and required training matches for new players. Matchmaking is putting seemingly brand new players who don't respond to pings with high elo/high level players and frustrating them. Please require at least 5 or so bot matches before someone is allowed to play a champion in normal games, since there is no ranked system or elo to grind yet. This system will need some additional checks before implemented but the general idea should improve quality of games for everyone.
