: low gain usually means you have low mmr, game thinks you're too high of rank for your wir
Seems very odd to me, if I check my mmr it says it is at the same rank as I am now. I was Gold 1 at season end and am currently gold 3 for this season and have been doing 50-60% wr. Not sure why it would be low lp like this then

: The LP is NOT being split to other roles though. You are still gaining 18-20 in a win which means you are generally where you are supposed to be for that ranking. The others roles get a splash of 3 to help them climb because Riot wanted there to be an incentive for off roles. It's really unlikely that you'd be getting 23 a game, when you can get super high things like 60-70 in Placements and then it drops back down to the 18-20 range. I gain 30 points a win because I'm below my range of where I've been in the past, so that's why mine would gain more and then decline as I got closer.
Everyone I know is still getting 21+ lp. Even though we have played rank this season as much as each other and mmr is the same. I was gold 1 last season and while that is not far off my current rank it is still lower than where it was and I feel my lp gains are lower than they should be. The main point of my article as well isnt about lp gains as much as the positional ranking system not being ideal for ranked. We have people queuing up for roles they dont care about or for their friends roles and switching and the games arent always the best quality because of it. Why not just let players play their assigned role as it was before. I have never gotten less than 20 lp for a win up until this system was put in place and with the combination of 18-19 lp and positional ranked, ranked has been much harder to climb for me on my main role.

: It's all based on the MMR. Theirs is most likely higher in the system than where yours is, so it gives them more points. We don't know for sure though since only Riot can see those numbers and we just have to speculate.
I have compared both mmr and ranks. As you say only riot knows the true numbers but in each case we have the same mmr if not I have a little higher.
: I feel you i started this season off very strong as expect cause i was p3 last season and got placed in gold 4. i played all my games in the support role. and i literally won 21/24 games (had 12 game winstreak but was getting 18 lp each game and didnt skip a tier lmfao) and i only got gold 2 and 50ish lp from my original placement of gold 4. and then i started playing all my other roles and got them to the same rank cause i was sick of having to carry games as brand support since its still sometimes very hard even tho im 4x better than what i get paired against. since ppl dont understand how to not die every 2mins in lane phase. Now im gold 4 in ALL my ranks and i'm now stuck in an elo i really dont belong in but teammates are keeping me in cause they feed their asses off and don't care since most time ill have just 1 guy (and thats all it takes to throw the game) who gets placed in off role and just doesn't care cause hes only losing 3 lp off his overall rank. this system is not logical.

Exactly, do you mind posting this to my post in the gameplay tab? I feel it will be more visible there and I would like riot to see more people who share my feelings towards the system

I understand that it is not being split between the roles, I may have worded myself incorrectly. I am usually getting 18/19 lp which ends up leaving me with a few lp needed to get to promotions. I know plenty of friends who are the same rank as me who are gaining 23+ lp as well as getting 3-5 lp for each of their other roles so I am not sure why I am getting 18. I got even 17 for one win yesterday and that really disappointed me as I feel I have been winning more and it should go up.
