Ranked teams are here! Their solution to smurfing? You can *only* create three teams a week.  :awesome_for_real:

That said, let's doooo this. Bat Country form up!

Seems dumb not to let any number of players in a team.

It seems to me that at level 25 I have ranked games available to me on the queue list now, but I thought that it was only level 30.  Did they change this in the patch?  If so, does anyone want a level 25 on their ranked team (I can learn!)  :grin:

I'm seeing it at level 12.

So can you only belong to 1 team or 3 teams or can you join 3 new teams every week?

You can belong to 5 teams. You can create 3 new teams every week.

I'm only level 20, but I'd be down for getting on some ranked teams whenever I'm eligible.

Only 8 members per team is pretty restrictive. You need 5 of the 8 people on your team to be on at the same time. Seems next to impossible unless you have set play times.

It might be best to form teams based on what time slots people are available in.

I'm in, as long as nobody minds me dragging their ELO to shittown.  Weyen in game.

As for availability, I'm mostly just free weekends for the next while.  Some evenings (GMT-6) but kind of sporadic.

Should we throw together a Steam group or something?  I'm mostly not sitting around idle online in the LoL client waiting for people to join, but I've almost always got Steam going in the background.

Yeah, especially restrictive for a group of more casual players. If all 8 are hardcore LoL-addicts then getting 5 on at once is fairly likely, but if everyone is even one step down from that frequency of play it becomes exponentially less likely.
