A good majority of online games have Q timers. Most are not short, and most have a limited amount of time to accept. Again, it takes a full day of playing to get 100 LP. How could a 10 min wait be justified against losing that? I don't see it from any angle. If you queue you should be prepared to sit and wait for it to pop.

I held my own all the way up to 1600 last season without much of a sweat. Problem with the new system is that even if you go 10/0 and some how make it to the Promotion series then lose 3 games those 10 wins those hard fought wins are now completely pointless because of 3 loses. Making those ~8 hours completely void is just stupid.

Instead of whining he actually won games and got promoted by not LOSING A BUNCH OF GAMES. Seriously you went on a 6 game losing streak and want to be promoted? Also if you lose your promotion series you start out with like 80 LP so... ya... your Lolking Score currently is 1440ish, meaning your elo would be Silver back before the change so you obviously don't deserve Gold.

You do not have to lose a bunch of games you just have to lose 1 more than you win. Or you can win 10 straight then lose 3 in the promotion and all will be for naught. That us ny problem right there. I have won FAR more than i have lose yet im still at the same elo as when i started.
