I'm still sort of confused why I can't dodge in a promotion series? Like it sets you up for failure in some cases=\.

Wow... i believe that anyone that got demoted recently should get the quivalent LP that they had lost.

Thanks and gl hf!

So basically for people who weren't previously challenger tier it could take us ages to catch up to those guys who have like 500 lp right now?

Hey all,

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!


So what happens to those who, like me, have been demoted substancially since the new league system started? Will i just stay there? or will i earn some points back?

I'm not able to play a game, the loading screen doesn't show up and when I restart league the screen says reconnect, but it doesn't reconnect me, it just stays at that..

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.


Is this accurate?

I am not a good player in any imagination but on a win I get 10-15 points (Silver D.V) then on a loss I lose 10-15.

Example: I am 3w -6l in my last ranked games (playing a new champ Taric and Varus mostely) i started at -3 and ended at 11.

Seems to me I probably should have been demoted (if possible) and forced to uninstall.

"-Increased the requirements for being demoted so that demotions will happen less frequently."
