I usually sit around 27-3000 as support. Been this way for a fair while now. Placements usually put me anywhere between 2200 and 2700, once got placed at 3100 but i quickly dropped back down to my mean, I don’t belong in diamond lobbies.
This season, I enter my placements.
Game 1 - Gold lobby besides me, I’m unplaced - Win.
Game 2 - Plat lobby - 2 leavers, get farmed at base - lose almost immediately.
Game 3 - SILVER LOBBY - both tanks leave after first team fight is lost - get farmed afterwards. Lose
Game 4 - Silver lobby - Second support leaves - We cap as 5, hold them short (barely), win.
Game 5 - Silver lobby - Tank and DPS leave - Farmed at base - Lose easily.
Placement SR - 1580.
Please tell me, or make it make sense to me, how SEVEN LEAVERS IN 5 GAMES made my placement SR drop 700-1500 points? I dropped from steady plat to LOW silver in 5 games of placements and basically had zero input in what happened to my teams.
Am i expected to play my way out of Silver? It feels like a total chore, for something that was very little fault of my own and I don’t actually understand how my SR has dropped that much in that short of a time.
