**_Okay, I completely understand why it's there for Ranking up from Bronze to Silver, Silver to Gold, Gold to Plat, etc._**
But why is it there for Silver IV to Silver III? Being that if you have already done that promotion, Riot gives you a "freebie" to help you rank up to the next level of your current division, why not do away with it all together?
You're Silver II and you're at 94 LP in that ladder. You win your next game to bring you to well over 100LP, but instead, it just places you in Silver I with 0 LP. If you were to lose that game you'd lose LP as you normally would and remain in Silver II.
Currently it sits like this:
You're Silver II and you're at 94 LP in that ladder. You win your next game and enter promotion series. You win 2 more games and now you're at Silver I with 0LP. **BUT** if you lose that promotion series the LP is deducted and you end up somewhere between 50-70 LP in Silver II. What the fuck is that? It's like double punishment for losing your series, you're still stuck in Silver II **AND** you lose the LP.
Please consider the change mentioned above.
