That's how it works when you're about to move up to Plat or whatever your next level might be.

You don't understand how it works. Once you are promoted to a new tier, you'll never go back down. (So you would never go from Silver to Bronze). The system has to check and make sure you are actually ready for the next Tier.

ELO still exists as a number, but you cannot see it. YOU ARE GAINING ELO!! Despite a loss in the League system you are actually progressing.

As your unseen ELO grows, you'll gain more LP for wins and lose less from losses, because now your ELO backs up your League ranking.

The system is not "trolling" you. Keep playing. Keep winning. You will notice the point values will normalize as your ELO starts to match your League ranking.
