Faker compares solo queue to slot machine, wouldn’t play it if he was not a pro player

Have you ever felt frustrated about solo queue? How about how coin-flippy your games have been?

If your answer is “Yes” to either question, you are not alone: the greatest of all time, Faker, also feels the same. Just like you, when it comes down to it, he is not having fun.

According to the clip above (translated by reddit user hkbr9), Faker compared solo queue’s odds to that of a slot machine. “If that’s the case, I don’t see the point in playing [solo queue],” he said, after noting that he wouldn’t play it if he wasn’t a pro player.

It’s easy to relate to him when some of the players out there find sickening fun in going Disco Nunu and in inting their teammates no matter the level of play. On the other hand, mistakes at Faker’s level are more subtle, thus not as easy to demonstrate.

But one thing applies to all, Faker included: random matchmaking has gone wrong many times, pairing players from one tier with players from the tier below it (sometimes more, as Challenger players can be paired with Diamond IV teammates, skill disparity aside). At higher solo queue tiers, that difference is insurmountable.

Perhaps, and there is the sudden realization: people don’t rank up to get better; they rank up to get inted in more sophisticated ways, or to see how imbalanced ranked matchmaking can become.

Unless you play on EU West, then Disco Nunu will int who he pleases at all levels. Or anywhere if a 0/20 Yasuo enters the lobby.
