All star difficulty has no place in ranked seasons. RS is supposed to be a competitive mode, not a cesspool of randomness. Its ridiculous how many hits come as a result of poor user input, and how many outs come as a result of good user input. If you wanna play on AS difficulty, it should be in a mode where winning doesn't effect your ranking/rewards.
Sorry, but if you're not good at the game, you shouldn't be catered to. That's exactly what AS difficulty is, catering to those who either don't put the time in to get better or simply suck. I don't care if this comes off as elitist. You can have no skill at still win against far superior players on AS difficulty. That is the exact opposite of what ranked seasons in supposed to be.
