Thank you so much for opening the ranked queue to 24 hours! :D <3 <3 <3 I don't mind waiting a couple of minutes extra for a match as long as I can rank >:) You're the best! !! !!!

Our assumption is that matchmaking "might" be ok for silver-gold-plat but really doesn't work at the extremes (bronze and diamond-challenger). If, after looking at the data we see this is not the case, we may revisit the decision to open the ranked queues during that period. MM
Hey MasterMirkinen, Any updates or anyway to follow along on this? Thanks :)

: Thanks for the reply mate quick question please why are you catering to the high end of the ladder?. it makes less then **9k (3%)** players as a whole. don't you think its abit unfair to deny the main ranks of this game who make over **85%** of the servers population? it sucks that diamond players have to miss out, but that doesn't mean the rest of the ladder should suffer because of that. also i'd like to point out that most of the time they will jump on a smurf and play after a few matches to relax, de-stress and most of all play with friends. if you want the server to grow, you have to take abit of risk.
Excellent point! Dota2 servers are 24/7. Is Riot going to let DoTA2 beat League?

Bump as I am super keen to get the ball rolling for 24/7 ranked servers
: We had massive response of 6 comments in that reddit!
A lot of the people who play late at night are from overseas and don't speak english. They can't really vote. Also I would vote but I don't use reddit

Hi MasterMirkinen! Thanks for the reply. I played 4am-8am ranked solo queue and it was fine. And this was *without* people knowing the queue was open. The queue times were maybe a minute slower but I would much rather wait a little longer than not play ranked at all. I am not able to play during the normal hours of the day so 10pm-6am is the best time for me to play. When you speak to everyone please pass that we would like it running as long as possible! Also my friends in Thailand would like to play longer but can't due to the early cut off period. Some people only like playing ranked so you maybe losing a lot of players in Asia due to the closing. Thanks again :)
: Honestly I played well over 10 games in those hours over the past week and I didn't see any crazy matchmaking out of the norm. Just slightly increased queue times(from 3-4 mins up to 6-7) which was no issue as I would still rather play that mode over Normals.
: That too. But I do know people who work afternoon/night shift, that make it home about then. Still you're right, there's alot of non english speakers on then and that puts alot of people off playing ranked.
Who cares about people that don't speak english play? We are all there to win :D
: The problem is not enough people play at those hours, atleast during the school term. Personally I would of had it 2-6am instead of 4-8am since I know a few people who like to get a game or two in before work/school. Sure that would mean some people calling it a bit more of a early night, but is that a bad thing?
I work so the best times for me to play is between 10pm and 6am Melb/Syd/Bris time. If it cut off at 2am it would really affect my gaming time and I would just end up playing DOTA2 or something. I *really* want to play solo queue but Riot is making it really hard :(
: ive been playing 4-8am past few days that it was up. 0 problems finding a match and i would think that is the same for the VAST MAJORITY of players online. sure maybe really high elo players may find it hard to find a match but why shut it down for the handful of players it affects that way when the majority could play. it takes longer to find a match when you're in challenger anyway even at the best times.
Exactly! I found games within a minute or two. Why punish us for a handful of people? If their queue time sucks then so be it. For the majority of us we could find games in no time

: Check out some Summoner’s Rift concept art!
Very cool artwork! You have some very talented people designing the game :D
: > people just don't report anymore because nothing is done Did you ever consider the possibility that nothing is done because people "just don't report anymore"?
A year or so ago people used to report but now everyone just leaves post-game screen almost straight away :(
: A friend of mine is in this exact problem, repeatedly. He doesn't manage time all that well
I've stopped playing in the morning because kids queue up for ranked at 8:10am and need to leave by 8:30am so they say "all push mid now because mum says i have to leave now"

: We have all of the systems listed above (Chat Restrictions, Feeder Detection, LeaverBuster). Riot Gehirn heads up player support here and is the one who takes point on case reviews for severe punishments such as permanent bans, etc. The community team focuses on community projects. We have also just opened up a new role for a player behaviour specialist - listed here: http://www.riotgames.com/careers/54259
Reinstate the tribunal and you can have the player base do it for free. Maybe have a thing where players can apply to become part of the tribunal and if they are deemed fair and just then we can do it for you. WAY to many people are getting through your system and people just don't report anymore because nothing is done. Please do something within the next 6 months because "in the future" was what you said more than 2 years ago when OCE servers came out and the player base isn't going to wait another 2 years. Please please please please please actually do something about the epidemic facing the OCE sever. Thanks

: RIOT, please ban my account, i hate this game, this is not a fun fair game anymore. i keep talking to myself no longer play the game, but when i bored , i keep playing, this is bad for me, this game, the whole system and the whole environment are changed. the report is a joke, nothing help the game experience. please ban my account. thank you so much.
I have had these thoughts many times. I'm not buying anymore RP until Riots fixes it. Have been a few months now not giving them any money a small protest. Some how I just don't think they care
: Told a riot member about an account botting arams 3 days ago, still hasn't been banned.
I've sent in a couple of those too and they were still doing the same thing weeks later. Riot really doesn't care I don't think :(
Showbag40 (OCE)
: I simple fix Riot. If a player blocks another player make sure we never are placed in the same game. You will find that trolls/abusers/feeders will not be able to abuse/troll the blocker again and eventually take longer to find games to ruin for others as the more people block them the less people will play with them. Simple and we don't have to wait for your "flawless tribunal" to ban or punish these players...{{summoner:13}} Have a little think about it{{summoner:1}}
: Funny this is posted a couple of hours after i made a post about this very problem... And to the fact your system is flawed beyond belief... How long did it take for the legend RAM RAm to be banned,even knowing the theses very forums had posts about this player from may moons ago... To the very point if your system is that good why is it ive had games with player that want to tf mid as adc..and you look at there records and there feeders,still playing this game? Afking can be sorted very quickly,by just stopping them playing ranked.... If they do it in norms it doesn't matter as much but in ranked it does... not just give them a 20min cue... So saying all this,please tell me that the thousands of reports are not being sorted by scripts...or sorry on keywords or key scores because its a flawed system,it needs to be tighter... If a player says in chat that he is trolling or feeding or just being a turd when some1 reports him its only stored for later use to ban the player not every report gets looked at.. Because if it was there would be zero trolls or feeders in this game.... Just like ive stated before the player base in OCE is dying for this very reason.... Because the lack of bans in regards to this issue... Why no bans,no 1 wants to kill the cash cow...now do they... But the problem is,if you don't ban players because of this how are you going to attract new players because trust me they get in game see what's going on and leave... See there is the problem if your not seen to be doing anything,the player base will continue the way oit has for years..... And you will not attract new players . So the only solution is to start banning players from ranked matches,and if it gets to the point perm... Ive had so many players say"nothing will happen there is no trib in OCE" they know it and its all been in the chat logs and nothing been done to theses players... Every time you do this its lip service and you know it is,till you start banning them nothing will change,and when they come whinging on the forums then and only then will players fear being reported,and this will not only change them but this game for the better. Why you say because ranked will become some where to get better not having to put up with bad players.. Which will get to the point where players wont be playing tf mid as ad.... Or playing soraka top lane,the list is endless.. Because if a player is going 1-14 and then reports you for being toxic or saying your toxic in global and others report you not understanding that for every action is a re-action..and feeding players are the root cause of toxic players...
I completely agree with most of your statement. Every 2/3 games I will have someone go afk/flame a player till they go afk/ or troll when they give up after giving first blood. People rage and are incredibly toxic and say "Report me I don't care there is no tribunal." I had a "friend" I have now stopped playing with because he is so horrible and toxic in game and I actually report him every game. In champ select he is "mid/adc/top/jung or feed" and instalocks a champ or last pick "I don't care duo mid ". When the game starts he usually has abused everyone in the game before 2 minutes "you're (which he spells your because he is a moron) all fucking c**ts" is his usual first words in game. He afks every 4th or 5th game and will afk if he dies twice in a row without getting a kill. I always ask him why he is so toxic and to not do it but his normal reply is "I have never been banned after years of doing this". Seriously, he only plays ranked and ruins everyone's games and he laughs and actually doesn't care because "there is no tribunal in OCE". He had a chat restriction on the NA servers so that system at least works over there. Also when in ranked and someone does afk, rage, or feed (eg. walk down lane into tower etc) at the end everyone leaves immediately and doesn't report them because the player base at large thinks it's a waste of time because they never get punished. Riot please ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS! It is a joke that it has got to this stage where League is now notorious for having one of the worst, most toxic communities today. Ban people from ranked. Normals I don't care what you do but why is it fair that 1 person leaving the game at 10 minutes affects my MMR. It's unfair and makes me start to hate the game because nothing is done about the player base. So what does this say about the fantastic OCE system? It doesn't work. Period. Actually take some action! Please!

"Don't insult our intelligence, playing the dumb card may work in the US where people love their guns, war and lack of teeth more then each other, but not here. come on mate try again" I like how you imply you are smarter than the average american and then use 'then' instead of 'than'. Learn the correct application for each word then come back and insult people and make mass generalisations :D
