Nobody talks about Amumu :'(
Are the LP changes meant to make climbing easier? Can you still get to a point where you are gaining less than you are losing?
The ladder being streamlined isn't a good thing for the game I feel. The prestige in ranked has already faded away.
Have a good day :D
These are not intended to make the climb easier. Players who spike up above their estimated MMR in rank will still receive less LP for a win and lose more for a loss until their MMR catches up to their LP. This is the same as the inverse where you are not at your projected rank for your MMR and you will see higher gains and lower losses.
The changes we made in this patch are so that LP will change less drastically and gains and losses will be smoother and more consistent overall.
You may still see outliers of LP disparity, but overall it should be smoother.
