When does elo clamping usually start? I heard it starts once it goes past the 50 lp mark in division 1, but elo clamping start for me as soon as I hit silver 1. I'm getting 3-6 lp for a win and losing 4-5 lp for a loss...why is it clamping me when I just hit silver 1?

My friend who is also in silver 1 has the exact same win rate as me (56%), and he is getting ~26 lp for a win and losing 8-9 lp for a loss. Why is my lp gain and loss different from his?

When you least expect Riot hits you with it!

Fear the clamp!

You will be clamped for one reason if ever clamped: Your MMR is not high enough to proceed through the gate of gold/silver/etc

Yea but my MMR is based on win rate right? I have the same win rate as my friend but he's getting way more than I am and losing less than half the amount he gains

mmr isn't based on win rate it's based on an estimated skill level as indicated by "match making rating" they try to match you with people that are equivalent to you in skill level. you have probably lost a lot of games to enemy teams that were in silver or lower which will plummet your mmr

Well, you should be winning about 50% of your games at every MMR (assuming you're at the right MMR), so that's not a good way to base whom has the higher MMR.

If you want an APPROXIMATION on what your MMR is, use this site:

My mmr is approximately 1440. Is that a low enough mmr for clamping in silver 1?
