This is literally how my laddering goes in Silver one

win for 20
win for 18
win for 16
win for 10
win for 5
win for TWO POINTS
then lose for 18
then i get a troll team and lose for another 20
then i get an afk and im back to like 20ish

hell, a win < than a dodge

i literally cant get to my promotion series even winning ~ 65% of my games over the past 30ish.

How on earth is this fair?
the difference between silver I and gold V is what used to be 100 elo, if you're winning > 80% of the games in silver one you should be at least gold I lvl.
for those who dont understand what im saying, if you're ~1500 and u smurf ~1400 you wont win > 80% because you aren't that much more skilled than 1400.

seriously, the requirements to get promoted are rediculous.

) i totally agree with you. I have the same problem, only that i'm in bronze I. I had 90 lp, then after winning one game i received +5, after another one +2. Now i'm almost afraid to start a new game, cause if i'm losing one, i have to win another 3 ones to get back to where i am right now. How stupid can this be? And i've reached 96 LP like 3 or 4 times, but every time i'd start losing and get back to 10-20 LP. Its an incredible struggling to get promoted.

Your mmr has to catch up. Just keep winning consistantly.

I got gold 5 in 1 day, from silver 4.
MMR clamping and stuff.
Look at the SR forums Need YOU! Thread, it'll answer some of the other questions you won't bother to research

The excuse that your mmr has to catch up just proves that the new ranking system is only a ****ty facelift.

If Riot is going to do a ladder. THEN MAKE IT A GOD DAMN LADDER. not a hidden mmr that never actually catches up.

I have never been more frustrated with a game then the way this new ranking system works. if you need to win a promotional series to rise. you should have to lose a demotion series to go down. But nope thats not how it works.

I have lost almost any small amount of respect i used to have for riot

It's more important that you keep playing games, rather than get annoyed. Personally, I probably will never get LP clamped because I win about as much as I lose and I probably will never get to 100 LP. But you already have, so just keep winning. There is no use complaining.

Thanks for the responses

could someone elaborate on how the MMR system works and what "clamping" is ?

Edit: Nevermind the link died

Yegg had huge detailed explanation, it's floating around these forums somewhere.

Elo clam is basically where you get a slap in your face. You know those days when you get those afks and trolls? Well yea, they bring your win streak down. Sometimes i go on win streaks, then once i lose one due to a afk or someone who autolocks a champion they have never played, I go on a losing streak :/ So basically, when you're around 85 lp or something. You will get less LP until your mmr goes up. So around 90 LP ish you willl receive around 2 LP~ 1 LP each win. Ahaha it's tough to get to gold :/
