Sounds dumb but not really sure what ELO is, what it stands for or how you view it. I mostly play normal games and get people in there sayin how their ELO is like 1500-2000 ish and how they are badass and all, they usually dont do too great lol but Id like to figure out what my ELO for **** and gigs

Well since the update in Season 3, there technically is no ELO. There are new LP (League Points) and an invisible number players can't see. ELO was used for chess and RIOT adopted it for ranked games before the update.
