I'm Bronze III with like 15 LP right now because of various wins/losses.

If I lose all that LP, do I drop to Bronze 4? Or do I stay at Bronze 3 with only the possibility for advancement in my future?

If I hit Silver 5 and lose all LP, do I drop to Bronze I?

I saw something about a hidden matchmaking system where if you lose a bunch your LP gains will be lower and your losses will be higher, so does that mean if I hit silver and suck, I'll just stay there while dropping low enough to be playing Bronze level bros?

Bump because I'm confused and haven't seen this answered elsewhere?

From what I gather you will not drop when you hit 0 LP. If you are at 0 LP and have a massive losing steak you can drop a Tier, which I have seen. If you get to Silver 5 I don't think you can drop back to Bronze 1 regardless

You can drop from a higher division to a lower but you cannot drop from a higher league to a lower. So you could go Silver 4 to Silver 5 but not Silver 5 to Bronze 1.

Okay cool, that's what I thought but I wasn't sure. Thank you!
