How does inactivity in ranked work?

#1SW_FFXIfanPosted 9/9/2013 7:01:23 AM
I qualified for my best of 5 to move from Silver to gold and then I stopped playing due to school. I left it until it said I had one day left to play a ranked game to keep my best of 5 active. I played a game, won, and then the message went away.

This morning, however, I'm at 90 LP and my series is gone...

did you actually play that ranked game or did you dive it?

It is my solo queue ranking. It says on my profile now that I have become inactive but I just played a game on the 7th...

Dodging ranked queue if u are in promotion series cancels them

Also 28 without playing ranked drops ya to lower division. You could find time 28days for one game for sure. Im guessing U dodge in queue and your series got canceled

I didn't dodge any games....I just played one when it said I had time left, won, then logged off. Came back and now the series is gone, I'm at 90 LP and no other games were played.

The most likely scenario I can think up is that you did not finish your series within the time limit. I'm not sure if this is the actual rule or not, but I believe that if you do not finish your promotional series within those 28 days, you're still dropped from series. You can't just play one game and not finish the rest of the promotion series, otherwise you'd have months to complete it.

quoted from Riot Socrates

Short summary: Last patch we released a change to the league system to fix a behavior that was extending players promotion series beyond the expected time amount. From the day you enter your series, you now have 28 days to complete that promotion series or it will be automatically ended.

Ugh..well they worded it really poorly in the client..it still sounds like I have 28 days to play a game to keep the series active...
