elo isnt based off kdr. Here's what i've heard


When you're matched in a game, the computer decides who it thinks will win. It decides by the overall elo of both teams. If the computer is correct, and the higher elo team wins, a small exchange of elo happens. If the computer is wrong, then a larger exchange happens. The size of the exchange depends on the gap in elo. It has nothing do to with kdr

Don't quote me on it, but that's what ive heard

You probably still won't understand it. It's math. There is no bias. The goal of the game is to destroy the enemy's nexus not have a positive K/D ratio. ELO is going to be based off wins, not how many people you ganked.
