It looks like Riot is introducing pure solo ranked queue in League of Legends soon. Pure Solo Ranked Queue allows League of Legends players to enter ranked matches in the new Champion Select. They will not need any premade matches and all 10 players in the match will be solo queue.
The news comes from a post of Riot Support Page but strangely the post has now been removed. This means that Riot didn’t want us to know what changes are being made just yet. However, a keen eyed Reddit user copied and shared it.
Here it is:
WHAT IS PURE SOLO RANKED QUEUE?
Pure Solo Ranked Queue allows players to enter ranked matches in the new Champion Select without any premade matches. All 10 players in the match will be solo queue players.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM PAST SEASONS SOLO QUEUE?
In past seasons you could always bring a friend with you to help you climb the ranked ladder. Now you must face the Pure Solo Queue challenge alone!
ARE PURE SOLO RANKED QUEUE AND DYNAMIC GROUPS COMPLETELY SEPARATE IN TERMS OF LADDERS AND MMR?
Yes! However, your performance in Pure Solo Ranked Queue will influence your initial MMR in Dynamic Groups. If you already placed in Dynamic Groups before entering Pure Solo Ranked Queue, your performance in Pure Solo Ranked Queue will not affect your rating in the Dynamic Groups. Your performance in Dynamic Groups will never affect your rating in Pure Solo Ranked Queue.
Needless to say Riot is silent on the matter and isn’t ready to share its plans right now. We will let you know as soon as Riot makes things official.
