People always say they are surrendering in ranked because they "don't want to waste their time." But does surrendering actually save you time in the long run from an LP gain perspective? That's the goal I set out with when I made this video. If you're just interested in the TL;DR the truth is that if you have a negative win rate or if you lose more LP for a loss than you get for a win then it is pretty much always more advantageous to not surrender. If you have a win rate slightly above 50% or your LP gains for wins are only slightly higher than the amount you lose for loses then it is also pretty much always more advantageous to not surrender. Its only if you have an extremely high win rate or you get a massive more LP from wins than loses that surrendering becomes a better option.
