So after trying to get challenger for awhile now a bunch of other players and myself reached 100 points in diamond 1 but didn't get a promotion series... why?

Well I did a little research and my theory checked out. Challenger is capped at 50 players, currently there are 47 players and throughout 3 different diamond 1 divisions there are 3 people in promotion series. That's 50 eligible players. I started looking at the players who were in a series and i noticed one was on the verge of losing his series was 1-2. He lost the series and I checked all the diamond 1 divisions once again to see if there was a new promotion series. My first thought was maybe the system chooses the person who reached 100 pts first to get the promotion series, but no new series. I then figured it had to be the next person with 100 pts to win or someone break 100 pts again. So me and my fellow 100 pt warriors raced off to be the first to win the next game and in the middle of my game I got word from my source that a new player got a series, I checked it out and its true. So here are the facts I gathered from how this works.

-Challenger is max 50 players
-Once you get 100 pts there is no reason to play anymore since its all risk with no reward
-Challenger wont kick anybody out since everybody is a new recruit
-You have to spam search player profiles to find out when the best time to queue is so you can nab that spot.

TLDR - Need to fix Diamond 1 to Challenger probably raise player cap because there is no point to play once you get 100 points.

EDIT: When the new recruit tags where off the challengers I'd imagine at least 20 people a day would be up for replacement in challenger. So unless you build yourself a nice point stack already there wont be much you can do. I think Riot intended the grind through diamond to be a lot more severe. If this is what they intended, it's pretty silly!

EDIT2: Currently 50 players in Challenger HOWEVER a player has a promotion series from Diamond 1 because one player in challenger isn't a new recruit anymore (BabyZeus). How is that fair... BabyZeus is top 15 and being punished for reaching challenger too fast.

Well, I just don't see a point in posting this here.

A support ticket would get you more help than GD could offer.

Well that's what makes it risky and fun. Would you play a boring game? No.
What do fun and popular most games have? Excitement, risk and addiction.
These games usually make you jump in joy or punch your P.C.

p.s I'm not important

Edited

Lol I was meant to use sarcasm especially with the word addiction

I see your point, but this is helpful to all the aspiring to be challengers one day.

Also I know it may seem like this is true with high elo, but my friends list does not contain every diamond player.
