While League of Legends along with its publisher Riot has started to rely on third party websites for quite a lot of things, low elo SoloQ players have found a way to ruin what is, in essence,a good thing, once again.

Have you ever had a rough night of SoloQ, where even with your best efforts, you've just been outdrafted and counterpicked, making you go on a losing streak? We all have, the problem is what comes after.

Emulating big-name streamers and high elo League of Legends players is a trend in the lower ranks of League of Legends SoloQ ranked games. One of the ways to do so is by using various third-party websites to check your teammates' stats before the game and, just like higher elo players, decide on whether the game is won or lost.

Unlike those streamers and high elo players though, in the lower elos we've seen an uptick in the trend where your teammates will start flaming you due to your stats from the very draft, making the game unplayable. It's not unheard of for allies to "run it down" because nobody has dodged the game when they asked.

Add to that the superiority complex found in the words "get me out", which once again comes from emulating streamers whose actual job it is to play these games and whose in-game time is valuable, and you get a hodgepodge of toxic behavior that stems from unorthodox sources.

Besides, if low elo players were consistent with what their stats show, they would not be in low elo in the first place. So don't get too caught up in chasing the meta too much, or consider a game lost because someone got first blood. Even Master games can be a coinflip, not to say anything on those in lower elo.
