All enemy team are level 30 and I play some of them quite often. Now those players will not be able to just jump back in. This is the third post of a three-part update on matchmaking in League! This is pretty standard for any new champion. I dont think this is fair matchmaking - It ruins my mood, it's not fun it's more a waste of time.
I had this kind of matching before, where our team had a level 7 and a 20s. I can almost guarantee that these are smurfs playing with lvl 30 friends because I've tried and soloq'd up for Aram on my lvls 16-20's and it takes over 3 minutes to get into a queue. But recently I discovered that a lot of unfair matchups happen. But it's Riot, so consider that it could be a buggy matchmaking's fault. Autofill massively cut queue times, but we heard from you a lot that the rate you were getting autofilled was too high.

As a bonus, this can help with getting smurfs to the right places faster.
League of Legends - Riot Intro sound used: Impact 01 modified a little by Machinimasound. Early 2016: Position select was really inefficient at launch, so some high level players would wait 26 minutes or more just to play one game. In 2016, at the highest levels, some players were waiting literally hours just to play a game of League. I play a lot of ranked flex queue with my friends. I can deal with this as an Aram only player. Second are some new items, one of which designed to make it easier for melee characters to engage against a much longer-range team composition.
