the reason riot can deal with it due to lcs/people getting payed for being good at the game.
and those 200 people that didnt get glad can try better next season and get it god knows its not hard to get duelist/glad/r1 in the current state of the game.
edit : you shouldnt even play the game for the stupid meaningless titles and if you decide to quit coz you didnt get x title ure just stupid.
you boost people for titles for money. So the title has value and meaning to someone. if you can't understand that, you're just dumb.
