Riot to improve ranked climb consistency in League, addressing issues of LP gain

In the recent dev blog, Riot Games’ League of Legends team addressed the adjustments coming to the game to enhance the ranked experience for players, with a focus on LP gain and the wider system.

According to Riot, roughly 50 percent of Emerald players experienced extended periods of negative LP gains last season. The issue was extended to 85 percent of players ranking Masters and above. However, this has now been fixed, and this metric dropped to only 5 percent of players. “For players below Emerald there’s always going to be some periods of negative LP gains for short periods of times,” said Matthew “Riot Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison, League‘s lead designer. “But [the League team] will continue to minimize it by adjusting those gains and losses.”
