And once you reach level 30 you are put into that bracket...interesting...very interesting..

Queue dodges and leaves deflate elo, so it makes sense.

Why do new players to ranked start at 1200 then? Shouldn't they start at the median Elo for ranked, which I'm guessing is around 900-1000?

Could we see some stats? I think we'd all love to see some statistics (just general ones).

1200 elo is horrible, its a bunch of fresh 30s who dont know what theyre doing. I had much better games when I was 900.

..and then 900-1000 puts you into the top third. There's nothing special about the number 1200 - it's just where people start. A 5v5 game causes an equal amount of gains and losses, and there are other things that cause losses (dodges, leaves from the winning team, inactivity penalty for 1200+ players), so the average must be smaller than the starting value.

1200 is considered low elo because everyone starts there, but in reality like guinsoo said, the worst players dont even play ranked. i would believe his stats of over 1200= top 1/3rd of players since he has the actual data to back him up, which none of the people claiming that 1600 is mid elo have
