Loss Prevented/Loss Forgiven, aka Compensation Mode, aka The Button, is when something is going wrong on our end that causes significant and widespread gameplay issues. When our crack squad of network gurus diagnose a problem that significantly downgrades gameplay quality for a large proportion of players, The Button is pressed and losses no longer count. You will not lose Elo for ranked queue losses, and your games will not count against your W-L record (if you lose). Wins still count, and Elo is still gained in ranked games (at a significantly lower rate).
