In solo queue games, my Elo generally shifts around 12 points, depending on a win/loss.
Queuing with friends can have pretty crazy effects on your Elo, though. I'm generally around 1900 and sometimes play with a bunch of guys that hover around 1300. If I win a game with them, I will only gain about 6 Elo. If I lose, it's easily going to be about 25+ points down the drain. And it's about the opposite situation for them. Mostly because our competition usually ends up being in the 1500-1800 range.
So if they are queueing with higher Elo friends, they could easily be losing more than they win while still pulling down a 1600 Elo, simply because they gain more Elo than they lose.
