so after I finished a game of NORMALS, i got this message saying to me i was promoted to Silver III but, the thing is i haven't played a ranked game in s3 yet.
Well...Congratulations! You've done what many are complaining they can't do. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Had you already done placement matches in ranked?
Did anything follow the message? (Did you see that you were in Silver III right after?)
Maybe you had done placement matches but didn't have the requisite number of normal matches/wins to be ranked? (I don't know if there is such a requisite..)
