The other guy is right, you weren't unlucky, you are just bad. Hyper rolling does not change what they might get, the only information they might gain from being on comms is what is in their shop, outside of that you always have access to other players' boards. If you choose not to look at other boards, that is on you. Now if they were sacrificing themselves to boost another, that would be a different story.
Before you insult somebody, maybe look first. Just for context: I'm Platinum 2. You don't understand what advantage they get by teaming up and hyperrolling? I'll explain.
They are playing 4 completely different comps that they chose before the game. This means that each of them has 3 fewer potential competitors for their champions than in a real 8-player FFA game. Each of them is basically playing a 5-man FFA, as far as the champion pool is considered.
They can start hyperrolling from round 1-3, without keeping any champs 'just in case', looking at the other players and choosing what to build later. They spend all gold immediately. That is how they get 3-star champions very early.
Normally that would be a bad strategy, too risky, because you never know how many people are rolling against you and what comps will be in the game. But they do know. They can hyperroll safely. If all other players go for the same build as one of them, that means the other 3 win easily. And that's fine when you work as a team. Most of the time though, each of them has either 1 or 0 competitors.
Do you understand now?
And I don't know if they are boosting each other either. What they do after they eliminate the other 4 players is entirely up to them. Since they are the same rank, they probably agree before the game who takes which place and then take turns winning.
This was just the worst case I've run into. But nothing stops a group of 8 players (or 4 real players and 4 alts, or 1 real player with a bunch of pc/phones and his 7 alts, or w/e other combinations) from running a 100% rigged game of ranked TFT that nobody will see.
Teaming up is against the spirit of FFA. That is my main point here.
