Thinking back to when I was new, ranked was a terrible experience for me, and I've noticed this for many other people as well. Why? Because Riot places unranked players in Silver 1 games. I assume this is because there are so many smurf accounts around, but this makes for a really bad experience.
This is the place to talk about any and all things in the gamer cultural space (video games, anime, etc). Mostly, that means stay away from stuff like religion, sex, politics, and social issues, though some exceptions may be appropriate (e.g., internet legislation).
