    This is merely trying to find some way to assure yourself that you can find alternatives to hard work.

    Truth is you can't.

    So it's best to be working harder to improve for climbing elo.

    Everything Athene says is correct, and this is a viable strategy for jumping tiers and rising faster. However while this is a viable strategy, it's also a pretty douchebag thing to do, especially in gold and above. It's not elo hacking, it's merely exploiting the current system, and so you won't get banned for this (you can however get suspended and possibly banned for dodging excessively) as long as you play some games too.

    And url masking doesn't work for questions, only for blogs, forums, and guides.

    Honestly, if people listen to Athene about this everyone will end up taking 20 minutes to find a perfect queue.

    However, I do realize the benefit of playing your preferred role having a higher win-rate, but you should come into ranked queues knowing at least 2-3 champions in each role just in case you do happen to be forced into playing that role. I have played many games myself in ranked and I definitely have played each role a minimum of 7-8 times our of 54 games.

    I realize that all that Athene is saying is correct, but it will only make the ranked atmosphere so much worse because people get frustrated when they have to sit through four queues. Riot did the LP reduction for dodging with a purpose not for people to abuse having 0 LP.

    TL;DR: Dodging should not be the answer to not getting your preferred role.

    Elo hacking is bad, and you will be banned for it, So don't bother.

    Lol ya the title is misleading, I just watched the video, I'm unsure about this method. @mastrer if you want to try it yourself then just go for it, not our problem if everything goes wrong.

    Honestly, Athene does a lot of good and bad things for LoL. I know he does all that charity and stuff, but he doesn't realize sometimes how silly the things he says are. This for example is just encouraging dodging in ranked play. Ranked games already take roughly five minutes just to get through picks and bans. If people are constantly dodging you could be spending twenty minutes or more waiting for queues. Let's face it, you will hardly ever be placed on a team where everyone gets their preference, so you should just adjust.

    (I actually do not know if it is true or not, but you will accomplish something you do not deserve if it works :P)
