Is the match making system really that accurate?

Next sample 20

1st 9 games (3 win, 3 loss, 3 dodge)
2cd 0 games
3rd 6 games (2 win, 4 loss)
4th 3 games (2 win, 1 dodge)
5th 2 games (2 win)

I have been stuck between 1310 and 1350 for a while now. My win percentage is above 50% so I am starting to wonder why I can't get my elo higher. I know I am winning more then losing, not by much, but enough to put me in the positive, so why can't I climb higher on the elo ladder?

I have 126 games played in this thread.

70 wins and 56 losses. That puts me at a 56% win ratio within these games.

I started around 1220 and peaked at 1356, so I had brought up my elo.

Currently I have dropped back down to 1284 elo although my win ratio is still a positive 55%. This means that I consistently lose more elo then I win per game.

It's hard for me to believe I have only gained a net total of 64 elo over 126 games. That's roughly 0.5 elo a game. But at the same time I feel cheated due to the fact that I hit 1356 elo and have maintained a positive win ratio, yet am currently at 1284. This shows that I have lost 72 elo while keeping a positive win rate.

This is confusing for me and honestly pretty frustrating. Can anybody explain this to me?

this seems like a smart and thoughtful thread. i think it merits a red post.

You have 70 wins.
You have 56 losses.

Your net is +14 wins.

Your net Elo is +64.



Your net Elo per game is 4.57.

My math was off? my bad. I still feel behind because I peaked 1356 and dropped elo although my win % is in the positive.

But what order were your wins and losses? What was your win rate between your 1356 peak and your current Elo?
