No.
The amount of LP you gain per win has nothing to do with the number of people above you in the league. I was at 0 LP (~rank 18) and then after a couple of wins I had 60 LP and was placed at 4th in my league.

So, basically its easier. Although the amount of LP per win is higher in PBE yet, I don't see how it can drastically increase.

After some appropriate testing on another account I can safely say that the new ranked system doesn't slow down/hinder your progress towards your goal any more or less than the old system.

Your division will almost always be corresponding to your hidden MMR.

I don't know what you guys are talking about but I played 3 games and was already up for a promotion, then after being promoted I immediately skipped a division and after winning two games was up for a promotion again. Although I also had a 12 game winning streak don't know if that had anything to do with it. But I honestly like this system a lot more.
