Why is it rare to fight someone with 2k+ elo on AU?
on AU its sort of rare to find someone with 2k+ elo(from my experience)although you have a few 1800s and 1900s im just thinking. Is it because of the competitiveness or more skillful players?on NA I can fight a 2k every few fights. Just want to see peoples opinions.


Also, please don't reply if your not au or don't play on au

I mean Im AU and the reason being why we have less 2k elo players is because there are only like 150 dedicated players unlike NA and EU have over 3000 so thats pretty much the main reason why tbh. BUT there are a lot of 1700-1800's .

I'm sorry, but it's verbally comming from a Teen skin and someone who hasn't played 1 ranked match.

You have no say in this.

AU players are extremely skilled, you just need to find them.

I'd imagine it is because elo inflation has not been able to happen as there are less players

more players playing so there is more elo to be won and the elo is worth less. Eg a 2.3k on au might be the best player from that region and not comparable to other regions because of that

Ah, a fantastic question!
Elo inflation refers to the phenomenon that occurs with the growth in popularity of a ladder. As more players join any certain ladder, more elo joins that ladder as well. Every time a new players joins, the total elo pool in that ladder expands by 1400 elo. There is nothing to remove elo from an elo pool besides resets, but those happens so little and on such a small scale that it barely matters. So as more and more people join any given ladder, it becomes easier and easier to deviate from 1400, the average elo. This makes sense, right? If there are 2 players that have ever joined a ladder, and I've beaten him 7 or 8 times, I'd be sitting right around 1500 elo, whereas he'd be sitting right around 1300. But if a third player joins the queue and fights me, I take more elo from him (and lose less) by playing him than by playing the 1300. Once I take another 100 elo from him, he's now a 1300, which means that I now gain substantially less elo from him than I did before. The process repeats. Obviously no ladder has 2 or 3 players in it except for the first split second of any season, but the same phenomenon occurs on a larger scale. For example, look at build UHC. It has far more unique players to ever join it than something like, say, horse ladder. This is the reason that as seasons progress, elo records are easier to reach. It's because as Badlion grows, the ladders grow as well, and as that happens, elo inflation occurs. I hope that wasn't too hard to understand.
