Incorrect. As opposed to clamping when you hit 90 LP and having your LP gain be reduced almost to and including 0, it will be more gradual and start earlier, so your +20 LP will start going down earlier so it feels less restrictive.

Then when you're at say 95 LP of D1, you'll only lose like 1 or 2 LP if that's what you'd gain for a win.

Previously you would be getting large LP gains until they suddenly dropped to very small amounts, whereas now the decreases will be much more gradual and will start earlier. It will still take the same number of wins to qualify for the Promotion Series, but your LP total will now be a better indicator of how close you are.

The important change is that now your losses will be similarly reduced, so if you're only going to gain 5 LP from a win, then you'll only be losing something close to 5 LP from a loss as well. You'll no longer see a single loss wipe out all of the LP gains from five or six wins when you're close to 100 LP.

I see that is much better, Thanks for the updates and working hard to improve the game and rank system Yegg.

Love you long time buddy

I actually enjoyed being dropped to 50LP after a demotion.
It feels like I'm tanking my ELO and getting golds in my Silver II matches.

Of course the LP gains were higher than I initially started too xD

Edit: How come I had a Gold IV 4th pick when I was 3rd and silver II...

I like the changes, but it would be nice if important changes like this were in the announcements forum to keep track.

Earlier today we hotfixed in some updates to the League System. These changes are intended to address some valid complaints about the harshness and frequency of demotions as well as frustrations surrounding the discrepancy between LP gains and losses for many Division I players. We've also included a few bugfixes. Here's the full list:

- Increased the requirements for being demoted so that demotions will happen less frequently
- Increased the length of the demotion immunity grace period that occurs after being placed in a new division
- Players and teams that are demoted will now have 75 LP in the new division rather than 50
- Tweaked LP gains and losses for players and teams in Division I who haven't passed the additional checks to qualify for the next tier
--- LP changes from both wins and losses will now be reduced in this situation, rather than just wins
--- Reductions in LP changes will now kick in earlier and more gradually rather than only starting near 100 LP
- "Loss forgiven" during server issues will now prevent demotions as well as series losses
- Summoner name changes are now properly handled by the league system
- Fixed a bug that could occasionally cause players to gain more LP than expected in Challenger tier

As always, we'll be monitoring the effects of these changes and we'll be making further tweaks over the coming weeks, so feel free to post your thoughts on the current state of the system once you've had a chance to play some games.

Thanks and gl hf!
your systems sucks this new sytem sucks ! you get 13 points in 3 battles and you lose them in one that is stupid

Cool. Now if only I were still in Silver division 1, instead of losing 4 games because of disconnects and afks and being demoted into division 2 with 50 LP.
