Just wondering why my ranked games now only seem to be worth +/- 11 elo when they use to be 12,13 or 15 or so. Its just never been explained to me.

Is it based on consecutive wins/losses, numbers of games, or whatever level youre currently at or what?

Would appreciate someone explaining it or pointing me in the right direction (to a relevant thread or site - I cant seem to find one)

Thanks in advance

Your first ranked games untill you get ranked, your elo will change around +/-40 per game. Then, when you have around 10-20games played, your elo will be decreasing to +/-10/13 per game.

It does seem like this season my ELO shifts less. I am pretty sure it has to do with the differences in team composition/team ranking, but it does seem odd that last season most of my games were 20-14 point swings and this season then are 11-13 consistently.

Are there defined brackets though? Im about 100 games in right now and im hovering between 1200 and 1300. This morning I played 2 games, lost the first and -12elo, dropping me from 1209 to 1197, then won the 2nd one, for +11 elo, bringing me to 1208.

Net loss of 1 elo seems wierd and unfair, especially going from the 1100s to the 1200s.

Will test further, but can anyone explain this?

You'll receive slightly more or less depending on whether or not your team's Elo was slightly higher or lower overall than theirs. Winning when you have a slight Elo advantage will give you fewer points than when you win with an underdog rating.
