### @Riot Explain League Points to me?

I win 2 games I have 41 League Points.

I lose 1 game and I'm down to 12.

That's an average of 20.5 per win and 29 per loss.

How is anyone supposed to level up?

Not QQ-ing. Just asking what the logic is there.

I'm not sure what your point is

old elo system = win 12 lose 12 = u have to win forever or u wont go anywhere or u will go straight down 900 elo

new ranking sytem = win x lose y where y > x = u end up with 0 point in that division or will be demoted down to division V of that tier and never below that,

and if x > y = yeh u r good

But why is 2 losses THAT MUCH greater than 3 wins?

go read the red posts about this. you have a low mmr because the system doesn't think you belong as high as you are. therefore you lose more than you gain from a win until it believes you deserve the rating.

Ahhhh. Ok. That's why it has started normalizing lately then. Thanks for the heads-up.
