No, the ranking system is pretty messed up atm. I think it's 7 or 9 games that you need to lose before getting promoted to diamond.

A player by the name of Cauthonluck was 50-7 or something like that and remained in plat, even though he kept playing against high ranked diamond league players.

I think I went 1-5 on platinum and was promoted to Diamond.

The ranking system is bugged, you have to lose a couple of games before it promotes you, I even tested it myself because I was stuck in silver for the longest of time over 100 games played in 1v1 and I was winning a lot, 8 win streaks and I saw a thread on Starcraft 2 Forums saying that you have to lose a couple games then you win once and you get promoted. So I tested it out by losign 3 games in a row then I won once and it promoted me to Gold. Which is why those pro gamers, even with their crazy wins can't get promoted because they jsut don't lose enough. Heres the link to some theories on it. http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/540704940#1

oh ok. I meant your TOTAL losses, not just the ones from the plat league. Since you're at 8 losses, I'm assuming 7 losses is the trigger to get promoted.
