What is the point of the Promotion Series?

**_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? Example: 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.
