Can someone explain this?
I was 1 game away from promos. I played it, got into my first promo, and our team got annihilated. When I looked compared the division/tiers of the players, I was surprised. Before my promos I was with Gold 1s and Plat 5s. Suddenly I am with Plat 4s and Plat 3s. Why is that?

Promo games will match you against harder opponents. It's supposed to be tough and try to keep players out of the next division. I'm in Plat I right now and getting matched against DiamondV-I players pretty consistently. Happens to everyone, hang in there!

It's called the gatekeepers. They're there to make sure you don't go up lol.

ya don't get down on yourself, i did my promo to plat like 4 or 5 times. for whatever reason in my first 3 attempts i played very passively in champ select and filled, it was extremely stupid on my part. my final attempt i did my best role every game and won it 3-1.

just something to keep in mind.
