I've been grinding hard to get gold and I managed to get a 5 win streak. I was at 81 points, which normally would've landed me a spot in the promotion series if I won my next game.
But when I won my next game, I only received +9 LP. I thought it was maybe because of server issues, so I played another one and this time I only got +5 LP... Pretty disappointed that I had to do another game, I still queued up to get that gold, but when I won that game, I was congratulated for my time and effort with a measly +2 LP.
I was on an 8 win streak, at 97 points, so I queued up AGAIN... Whats the worst that can happen? I get +1? Nope... I lost that game, and I lost 19 points. More than the 3 wins worth of points. Why is 1 of my loss negating over 3 wins? Is this normal?
I made a support ticket but was greeted with an automated message forwarding me to this thread.
