So I have recently been trying to grind my way from 90 Lp towards 100 in my Silver I division. I have not made it to the series as of yet and find it a bit ridiculous. It takes me about 5 wins to get from 90 to 99 Lp, going as low as 1 Lp gain a win. I just lost my game at 99 Lp and lost 16 Lp, where I usually only lose about 6 Lp. Can someone please explain why it was so massive this time? Note that the times I lost 5-6 was also when I was at about 97 Lp.
