Why did they make it such an extreme amount harder to move up?

I'm 10-8 so far with new ranked system, and EVERY single loss has lost me more LP than I have gained on wins. At first I thought it was a coincidence, but this is 18 games in. Is there an actual logical reason for why they made it so much harder to stop playing with scrubs?

Edit: I gain 17-20 LP per win, and 21-25 per loss.

That should mean youre in a higher bracket than your Elo is at so its trying to bring you down to a bracket closer to your Elo.

Like if youre Elo is Silver but you are in Gold it sees the loss as a chance to get you where you belong.

The game thinks they put you in a higher division then your MMR (hidden elo) would indicate, so you're getting matched with people that are below where your division would indicate. If you're going even against people who are skill-wise in lower divisions then you, then by that logic, you belong in a lower division then the one you're currently in, so the game should be trying to lower your division so it accurately depicts your skill level. If you start winning more then losing, your MMR will rise, matching you against better people and awarding you with more lp for wins and less lp for losses.

TL:DR, if you want to rise in divisions, win more then you lose. You'll eventually get there.
