Hi , so I just reached lv 30 today on my second account , I jumped in ranked game to do my first placements game and i really dont get how new placements works. So as I understood :
-There is 8 games, not 10 anymore
- You are automatically Iron 4 for your first placements
-Your 8 placements games doesn't place you anywhere but you get a huge amount of lp if you win , and if you lose you dont lose any lp
For now I made 3 games , I won the 3 games and i'm currently Iron 3 57 lp. The first game i won 60 lp, second game 51 lp , third game 46 lp , so we win ~50 lp if we win a game.
If I win my 8 games , winning ~50 lp i will be placed in Silver 5 ?
It's so annoying --'
I was plat 3 on my real account in s8 , so if i want to get back to my real elo I have to go through all Silver and gold ?
Even if you are challenger you will be placed Silver 5 max. ?
I find this really stupid tbh, so I guess I didn't understand how placement works, could you explain it to me pls, or send a link who explains it nicely ( which i didnt find)
