Good morning, after reaching Gold V earlier this week and starting at zero points, my next four matches went as follows: Win and immediately placed into Promo Series, then W-L-W and promoted from Gold V to Gold III.

Questions:
1.) Is it normal to skip divisions in any capacity while in a promotion series?
2.) If #1 is Yes, is it influenced by one's own MMR?
3.) If #1 is No, could my previous double-promotion (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=3051848) have anything to do with it?

Attached are a screencap of the promotion, my dxdiag info, and this morning's client logs. Let me know if you need anything else.

Yes this is normal because you must have a high hidden MMR as you can observe in this post

This is normal, as stated above, abit more background on the above.

The numbers to progress through tiers are HIGHLY HIGHLY Lowered on the PBE.
This is because
A) The PBE does not have as many active players
B) To test all aspects of the system, and allow players to progress through different ranks (Even if they would not normally on the normal realms).

tl;dr matches are giving you more MMR than they would on live realm.

This is all part of the race to challenger tier thread.

I honestly haven't read the Challenge Tier thread until now, and that answered all of my questions rather efficiently. Thank you all for your responses.

Thank you for your honesty! Bump to the top; maybe you'll encourage others to actually give it a read o.-
