My knowledge of SCII is rather vague, though I have an idea of how it works. I didn't mean to say that they are "tests," I just worded the post incorrectly.

Not sure if this post is valid anymore due to the changes to their system. Thank you for listening to the community, Riot.

Will someone explain how they place you in this new system?

If you had bothered to search, you'd know the system works the exact same way as it does now. Elo isn't going away, we just can't see it anymore.

That's entirely incorrect. You play five placements against people in different leagues to determine the league you should be in. The first game of every season is another placement match. Every game counts. There is no 50 game practice league.
