I just received 0 LP points for winning a game. I was at 99 LP and it refused to start my series. Game ended approximately 5 minutes previous to this post.

This is a situation you can get into if your hidden MMR is lower than what the leagues system expects you to be to move up into the next division. Just stick with it and you will make it into your series.

Hidden MMR was the worst idea ever.

No. You're mixing his answer with your expected response.
What's happening is that you're required to play consistently to enter the next tier. In order to do that, a point was set to determine where people should fit in regards to their consistency. If you're being 'clamped' like you've described (super small increases in LP), all you have to do is consistently win more, and you'll move up.

Listen. Clamped and zero is a whole different ballpark. Sorry this happened to you. I hope it never happens to me.

Well.. basicly if you continue to win more then you lose you will get out of it. If you lose you just lose what you gained last time. So you gained +1 so you will lose -1.

Bring back the Elo system for season 4 please. The League system is a failure and is determined by Elo anyway so I see no point in having this disguised system. It causes more anxiety than you guys tried to remove when implementing this. The only thing you had to worry about in the Elo system other than trolls/ragers/etc was losing, but with the League System you now have to worry and promotion series and demotions, which is two times more stressful than just losing and losing some Elo.

The League System also just stalls players from raising quickly as you have to play 10-25 games to get to your promotion series, then if you get unlucky, play 4-10 more to get back up to promotion series. Or if you gain 2 LP per win or even 0 like the OP, then you have to play upwards of 100 game just to reach promotion.

Seriously, nothing good came from the League System.
