Ok I thought we were going crazy when we noticed that several people went up elo when they should have decayed but after talking to Chauster and seeing that several players gained about 30 ELO who havent touched TT in 2 weeks gained points it appears that Elo is indeed decaying backwards and awarding points for inactivity. You can check this thread for specifics http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...49#post3309149

I will cover the basics in here and please bump this so they read it and fix the problem.

Essentially Hotshotgg, Chauster, ReginaId and possibly many many others have gained points instead of decaying the usual 50. We noticed this in the morning went hotshot shot into 4th place without changing the amount of wins/losses he has (he has had 48-8 for like a month now) So naturally I asked around and noticed Chauster went up as well (you could see +7 or so ranks this morning) and asked him and apparently he agreed that he went up points without playing any games.

Either way this could easily be happening across the elo ranks and this seriously needs to be investigated ASAP and possibly reset the people who should have elo decayed to be down 30-80 points to fix this elo decay bug.

All I can say is I haven't played solo ranked in a while and I dropped from 1481 to 1431 ELO. So seems like ELO decay is working (although I think decaying 50 points seems a pretty harsh penalty).

Could this reverse decay only be happening for TT? Or perhaps only to certain people?

Yes that's my point, ReginaId had only 3 games in his history yet Wednesday morning (after the reset) he somehow went up points. I know RIGHT after the wipe he was 25-30 points lower and then the nexxt day he went up points. You can tell by looking at his profile that no TT games were played in that time span so something clearly went wrong
