I feel like I read somewhere that it does influence your LP, but I could be wrong?

The reason I ask this - and I don't expect Yegg to lurk around this thread much longer so i'll ask for anyones eyes.
After the new ranked system was implemented I was placed into Silver ll. I had 0 points and I unfortunately lost 3 in a row. After each game I thought for sure I would be lowered down to D3, but I wasn't.
What confused me even more is after winning my 4th game, I gained 17 points. I've heard that people aren't gaining that much, especially after losing my first 3 matches which would lower my MMR? Anyone have an explanation for this?
As for loss forgiven, there's an unfortunate bug right now where losses will still count towards a series even though you won't lose any LP or MMR. We'll be fixing it soon.
