I need to win to get to 80 LP, now if I loss I am back to 60 and at same place. I need to win again to start series.
now I am starting my series with a 2 game win streak and need to win 2 of next 3.
A couple things you should kow:
1: You aren't instantly dropped you 60 LP unless you fail your series with 2 losses back to back
2: You could be at 96 LP, lose one, be at 80, win one, activate your series, lose the first, win the next 2, and have gotten your promotion off of a 3-2. But yes, the idea is you need to win more than you lose in order to advance. If your win loss is dead even, you are clearly ranked exactly where you should be and don't deserve to advance.
3: People aren't saying you need 50% win loss in order to advance. They're saying you have a 50% chance of winning your series, statistically speaking.
