Why are promos a thing?

Edit: Well damn I was not expecting a QQ shit post to gain some much response. Good to know I'm not the only one who hates this asinine system. They are just not fun. And on top of that there are a plethora of factors that can really fuck you over with them. Two promo series today, both of them lost. Why is this system even in place? It's so stressful and unfun, on top of being an abusable way of ranking up. Can we just get rid of it? I'm totally sick of grinding all the way up to 100LP going 1-1 in promos only to have the decider lost because some kid has a shit-fit and AFK's at 15 minutes. One too many times that's happened in the past. I'm trying to reach Gold before season end but I can't even get out of this godsforsaken division.

We're testing a new feature that gives the option to view discussion comments in chronological order. Some testers have pointed out situations in which they feel a linear view could be helpful, so we'd like see how you guys make use of it.
