WTF was wrong with being on a lucky win streak?! I didn't know that getting carried 100 elo over your skill-cap was the fking work of Satan. This system screws people who don't play this game like it's their damn job. I have other things to do with myself than play LoL all damn day.

It shouldn't be required to have a win streak in ANYTHING to actually progress, that just makes no sense to me, win streak should give a nice bonus ON TOP, but not be the only way to make it around, that's just plain ****ing retarded.

What if someone were to win 2 games, lose 1 game, win 2 games, lose 1 game, repeatedly, would they never advance despite that being a 66% win ratio? This whole system is just confusing as hell.

Played four games so far this season in this order:

L - W - L - L

After these four, I dropped from Silver 2 to Silver 3.

Forgot to mention that each of the last two games involved AFKers on my team.

Three nonconsecutive losses to drop a division seems kind of bum to me, especially considering how many games are necessary in order to move back up (it started me at 50 LP in Silver 3, which means minimum of three wins just to qualify for advancement and then however many for the best of to move up). In conclusion, not a huge fan and it has definitely sapped my appetite for ranked a bit.

^ What this guy said.

Before, If I only had time to play two games, and I won both, I'd go up in elo and feel great. Now, I essentiallly have to earn 100 elo, just for a CHANCE (If I get lucky and get a good team 2 out of 3 games) to move up a tiny bit. It's a retarded, terrible, flawed system.

I was going to play my first ranked game today because of the new system, but now that it's here.... Not gonna lie.... I really don't want to.

I'm terrified that I'll get a troll, and nobody will dodge, and I won't dodge either.

That's really the only reason. I don't care about the LP thing, because I'm confident in my own skills to come out on top in any non-troll situation.

My proposed fix for the dodge penalty:

I myself am but someone else may not.

The issue is you're talking about an INSANE amount of games to move up an entire tier.

Just a BASIC example using what I've seen in previous posts.

Assume a ~20 LP Gain for wins and assume you win all games.

Div 5->Div 4.
5 Games for LP.
2 Games for Moving up a division.
Div 4->Div 3.
5 Games for LP.
2 Games for Moving up a division.
Div 3->Div 2
5 Games for LP.
2 Games for Moving up a division.
Div 2->Div 1
5 Games for LP
2 Games for moving up a division.
Div 1->New Tier
5 Games for LP
3 Games for moving up a tier.

Assuming you win EVERY GAME and you actually get 20 LP for a win(unlikely).
That is 36 games.

If you factor in a 2-1 win / loss ratio. Assume 20 LP for a win -15 for a Loss you start to see the insane amount of games to move up a tier.

Div 5->Div 4.
12 Games for LP.
2 Games for Moving up a division.
Div 4->Div 3.
12 Games for LP.
2 Games for Moving up a division.
Div 3->Div 2.
12 Games for LP.
2 Games for Moving up a division.
Div 2->Div 1.
12 Games for LP.
2 Games for Moving up a division.
Div 1->New Tier.
12 Games for LP.
4 Games for Moving up a division.

Thats 72 Games.
I think this point should be payed attention to.

If you won 36 straight games you could go from bronze to diamond.
