This system isn't even bad. I don't know what people are talking about. People just think they deserve to be higher up in leagues even though they shouldn't be. Almost every post in here is full of lies based on what people say. Yegg has responded to a few and proved them wrong, like that one guy who said he gained two LP per game but in actuality gained 25 in one game. People say it's too hard to get promoted up in divisions and they're stuck in their low tiers forever but I've gone from Plat IV to plat I already. I like this system.

I realize that may be frustrating at first, but I can assure you its worth the effort.
so many dislikes on your post xD

As long as you're consistently better than the other team? YOU DONT SAY!

That said, even though everything is working behind the scenes, it doesn't feel good right now, and there's not a lot of feedback on what's going on, so we definitely need to improve on that. I have some ideas that I'm fleshing out.


don't fix what ain't broken. this system seems to be working as intended.

If losing 1 game gets rid of 3 games of winning and that is working as intended, HOW IS RANKED SUPPOSED TO BE FUN.
It's madly frustrating to be held back by a hidden mmr WHY HAVE THE DIVISIONS if the mmr is all that matters?
BTW also, how is it fun to get placed in a higher area then your supposed to, and know that you have no choice but to fall to your supposed division before you can start making progress? Well that or you have to win enough games in a row that after a long time the system finally catches up.
If you base everything on MMR and not by what division your actually in what is the point of divisions/? To feel accomplishment? Because obviously that has failed.
Also, on the lucky win streak point. In order to luck out from say 70 lp to the next tier you would have to win maybe 6 games in a row to get to the promotion series. Then you have to win the series. This would require going 9-2 minimum.
Maybe instead of making the games leading up to the promotion give little lp for winning, match them with people in division 1 and 2 of the next tier. So winning those games is a huge accomplishment and shows they are really ready for the next tier.
Thanks, the new system has a lot of work put in to it it may still need fine tuning.

I agree with all the points Yegg made, I was placed in Bronze lll and I steadily gained LP, lost a few and climbed back up. Yesterday, I was up for promo but lost 2 games due to trolls on my team... so today I tried very hard to get to bronze ll, and successfully promoted myself. I am now on my way to Bronze l!
EDIT: Oh and im 99% sure my win/loss rate is positive after the system changed.
