I have a quick question, and sorry if it's been answered before, but was the roster based on any type of seeding? I'm just curious.

I'm pretty sure yes.

it kinda seems fail-ish tho.

We don't have access to any of Riot's data or any feasible means to verify the 1500+ players that entered the tournament so we did the best with what we had. If you have a better idea I'd be happy to hear it :)

What about the threat of death to those that lie?

:P jks.

What about approaching LoLStatistics and asking how they pull data from Riot's servers? You could use the same coding to update each player's elo in real time here at MobaFire based upon the supplied IGN. There was another site that grabbed elo from Riot's servers, but I can't recall what it was called, sorry.

Still no way to know if they lied about their summoner until they get in-match, in which case it's too late for seeding anyways. Additionally, from what I've been told, the methods such sites use are not supported or condoned by Riot and could be shut down at any time. Not reliable :(

What we need is for Riot to provide a system by which we can authenticate users on MOBAFire against their LoL account securely, similar to how you can log in on other sites using your Facebook account. Then we know your summoner name for sure and can hopefully retrieve an up to date Elo at will from Riot for authenticated accounts.

that would be a good idea, if you can get that done.

otherwise, just look them up in the client, l0l.

more often than not their IGN is either their username or they provided it.

Do you think Riot will allow for that, Matt? I'd love for the accounts to be linked, that way people can go to profile pages here on MobaFire and see the truth behind every guide mwahahaha.

No, but seriously, that'd be really awesome if it could be implemented. Then the whole Pro Status thing can become a reality.

Wrath: 1500 people signed up. Who was going to go manually checking IGN's to see if the elo was correct? o.O

I think Riot would love to be able to provide this for the community but they don't have the resources :\

? What do you mean? If they can afford to dole out $5 million for this season... I don't see how they can't allow websites to legally obtain information from their servers o.O
