How do the promo's work?

I'm currently 4 LP away from promo's, Bronze I atm.
Kinda wondering how they work.

Do I get paired with people who are in promo's as well, or against better people? Do my previous matches influence my matchups(eg. winning 5x in a row, matching me against much better players then when I enter the promo's with 1 win)?

Do I go back to 0 LP if I lose 3 games?

That's all I have for now, thanks!

afaik, matchmaking works the same inside and outside of promos.
the LP you drop to if you fail promotion is equivalent to what you'd gain/lose after the games.

so if you go 2-3 you'll gain LP for two games, then lose LP for 3 games, giving you a net gain of -1 win
if you went 0-3 you'd lose LP equal to 3 games worth.

Nothing changes. The only difference is your own artificial importance placed upon the games. Still being placed solely on your hidden MMR.
