I've been playing ranked a bit, and first 16 games i was winning/losing 30-40 elo per game, which seemed normal cuz other people i know were getting the same, but now i'm starting to get 20 elo per win, why is this? only played 18 games in total and got 20 elo past 2 games.

That's completely normal. Although I don't understand the mechanics of elo, I do know from personal experience that the amount you lose and gain overtime will diminish to 9 eventually.

the first 10 or so games have the most influence on your elo, in an attempt to get you ranked faster, then it slows down. this is also one reason for 'elo hell' if your first 10 games go badly, it will take alot more before your even back to where you started
