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.**

You may average a large Elo change on your losses than your wins, but you're not losing Elo while maintaining a positive win rate.

You compared your WIN RATE from 1220 Elo to 1284 to your change in Elo from 1356 to 1284. And then make the claim that you're keeping a positive win-rate yet lost 72 Elo.

Let's say I start at 1200 Elo, and for easy math, all wins and losses are worth 10 Elo, okay?

Let's say I play 50 games and I win all 50, right? Now I've gained 500 Elo and I'm at 1700. Okay?

Now... I'm 50-0 remember?

What happens if I lose 40 in a row? Now I've lost 400 Elo and I'm back down to 1300 Elo.

So I look at my win rate. I'm 50-40. Yet I just slipped from 1700 down to 1300. My win rate is positive, so why should I lose Elo?

The thing is, my OVERALL win rate is positive and my OVERALL Elo change is ALSO positive (I went from 1200 to 1300).

My win rate for the first 50 games was positive, and my Elo change over these 50 games was also positive (+500).

However, my win rate for the last 40 games WAS NOT positive (I lost all 40), and therefore my Elo change is negative.

Are you following that part now?
