as title says, team won all 5 placement matches and got put in silver 1. The players had a previous ranking of gold and plat in in s2 twisted treeline.

We also won another 3 straight and probably 2 more wins will put us in promotion series.

Question is, does this seem normal?

It's a computer system that crunches numbers. I'm sure it works out however it was made to.

If you excel, you go up, if not, you go down. Have fun and good luck

apparently it matters quite a bit what your team members were in S2. If all three of you were diamond, you'd probably have been put in plat or diamond after winning the five placement matches..

It matters what your team achieved in season 2 as well as who you end up playing against for your placement matches. If you are doing your placement matches and happen to get matched against 5 plat teams, you will be placed higher than if you faced 5 silver teams for your placement matches. Seems to be a fair amount of luck involved in the placing due to threes having a smaller pool of teams to pull match ups from. That's atleast how it seems to keep working out for us, we've tried making multiple teams and winning all the placements and we've gotten a very wide array of placements.

Like A12MO12 said, we had 2 gold players and a platinum player at the time of our placement matches, won all 5 of our placement matches, and got put into Silver 1.

We're currently 12-0, won all of the advancement games we played, and are now at the bottom of Gold 5?

Everyone on the team easily has Plat-level skills, but we're going to have to win at *least* 35-40 straight games just to get out of Gold, which is rather annoying to say the least.

How do you get that number? How many LP are you getting a win? We are currently getting 34 or so(or were as of our last win) so it would take 25 straight wins to get to plat from gold 5 with that number.

How many games do you need to play, so at the end of the sesson you get your rewards?
