I played a match a few hours ago on my other account (Machine Herald), won, and lost 2 LP. Can you check this out, Yegg? It was my most recent ranked match.

This is so frustrating. I won 7 games in a row and got to 90lp then lost three straight and im back to 30lp. WTF.... I can screenshot mymatch history to prove my point. I don't feel like playing any game any more. This is so dumb man, I could have been in the division series Please return my LP

Are you facing platinums as well? Cause ive lost 1 then won 7 in a Row against plats and gold... sitting at 96 LP

Here's what I see from your history:

Win (+24)
Win (+22)
Loss (-22)
Loss (-21)
Win (+19)

Current LP: 22

Everything looks reasonable to me.

We can tweak the tuning without a patch and actually without any server downtime at all. Just getting in touch with the right people to make it happen now.

Can you make an announcement when the tweak has been done?

Hey summoners,

We've identified an issue affecting many players in Division I of their tier in the new league system. These players were gaining very little LP from their wins, such that a single loss could wipe out the LP gains from two or even three wins We've been working on this for the last several hours and now have a plan of attack. Here's an explanation:

What's going on?

There are some additional checks and balances that are applied to players in Division I because the system needs to be sure that they're ready to move to the next tier before they qualify for their Promotion Series. Because of this, LP gains can be clamped for Division I players if their MMR is far from where it needs to be for the next tier. This check was tuned too aggressively and was causing the reduced LP gains that many players were seeing.

How are you going to address this?

We're going to attack it in two ways: in the short term, we're going to be tweaking the tuning values to make this check less punishing for players in Division I, which should make it much more feasible to gain LP over the course of multiple games. We're also going to be specifically addressing the Silver I case by slightly reducing the difficulty of qualifying for Gold tier. I'll update this post when that happens, hopefully tonight.

In the longer term we have some further ideas that we want to explore to make the tuning feel better, and we'll be listening to your feedback to identify areas that can be further improved.

What about the games that I won during this period?

Your wins were not ignored or forgotten by the system. If you won more games than you lost during this period, then your MMR is now higher than it was, which will increase your future LP gains and make it easier to qualify for that elusive Promotion Series.

What about if I was demoted out of Division I?

Demotions are based on MMR and are unaffected by LP gains and losses, so unfortunately the demotion would have happened regardless of this issue.

Thanks everyone for bearing with us while we work out some of the kinks in the new system. We're dedicated to continually improving it, so please keep letting us know what doesn't feel right and we'll keep looking into it.

Could you fix that? It seems to happen every game and I'm losing LP from it. I think it currently put me in Silver V when I should be Gold I atleast.
