What determines if you skip a division or not?

After my placement games, I was put in to silver 4. I won most games leading to my playoff series, then won the series. I got promoted to silver 2.

What determines that? Is it hidden elo? Is it win % in a division? Has Riot even told us?

Just curious.

im THINKING that it depends on your W/L Ratio in the games you played. Did you win both promo matches in a row? Im on a hot streak right now in silver 4 (god damnit) and 2 games away from promo. Im hoping for wins all the way out and to be taken to S2 or S1...Gold is where my home is

When I was up for promo, I lost the first game then won the next two. I think I only lost 1 game after being placed in to silver 4 though. My w/l was 7-1 in Silver 4 iirc, my 1 loss being from the promo series.

Im pretty sure its your hidden MMR that determines it, If it gets way to high for where you are it will bump you up a division to get your MMR the same as your league.

Opposite is also true, so if you start only gaining small amounts of LP for a win and loss lots for a loss your MMR is way below where you need to be for your division.

It's your MMR and probably your W/L ratio too. It seems like when you get promoted, the system evaluates where you should be according to your hidden stats and places you accordingly, instead of just incrementing your placement by 1 level.
