New Duo Queue Restrictions in Patch 4.10


Tired of unbalanced teams due to some diamond player duo queuing with a silver? Well good news is on the way! In Patch 4.10, duos will be limited to teams that are either one tier [i.e. bronze, silver, gold] above or below them, which should reduce the spread by a good amount.

Check out the official post below!

We’re continually working towards improving the quality of ranked play. Beginning with patch 4.10, we’re introducing a new restriction for ranked duo queues so players will only be able to duo queue with teammates ranked between one full tier above or below them. For example, if you are Silver, you’ll be able to duo with players ranked Bronze to Gold.
We found that the vast majority of duos already invite players within these thresholds and games that had duos outside of these limits are perceived as lower quality. This also closes some loopholes that allow the potential for undermining the matchmaking system via smurf accounts.

Unseeded players who played in the previous season will use their previous season solo queue rank to determine duo eligibility. Unseeded players who have never played ranked will be able to invite Gold, Silver or Bronze players.
We strive to make ranked the pinnacle of competitive League play, and this restriction is meant to uphold the integrity of that competition while still allowing play between friends.
As always, share your comments and feedback below.

Happy hunting,

  1. IMHO duo queue shouldn't even exist. However with these changes I think they are heading in the right direction, maybe even make it stricter, like within the same tier.

    what does IMHO mean?

  3. In my honest opinion

  4. In my humble opinion

  5. I mash hateful onions

    In my heterosexual opinion

  7. Well, I was taking a look at the new adc items and in the middle of them there's a supp item, congratz ShadowSect, now Sona is the best support game:(NEW) Ardent Censer
    Recipe: Forbidden Idol + Aether Wisp + 250 G = 1900 Total Cost
    30 Ability Power
    10 Mana Regeneration per 5 seconds
    10% Cooldown Reduction
    8% Movement Speed
    Unique Passive: Whenever you heal or shield another champion, they gain 25% Attack Speed for 6 seconds.

  8. Not So much as janna, shield AD bonus synergy and 5x atkspd buff with her ult. Dis is gonna be gooood.

  9. Remember: for use this item u should do a direct shield or heal. So, for the passive u need to CLIC on one champ. AoE heals/shields don't works with it

    Honestly it shouldnt even matter who you duo que with 1 person cant carry a game and its not like people dont smurf so what does it matter. Hell i know someone with an account in each elo but mains diamond 1 so what does this help? Just that he has no skins oh boy....
