The important change is that now your losses will be similarly reduced, so if you're only going to gain 5 LP from a win, then you'll only be losing something close to 5 LP from a loss as well. You'll no longer see a single loss wipe out all of the LP gains from five or six wins when you're close to 100 LP.
Like the 15 points i just lost for one loss, after gaining 3 points a win the last 4 games i won?
i just went from 95 to 80 after going from 92 to 95... is this a glitch?
At this rate i have to win 5 games in a ROW to make up for one loss.....
