I was thinking, your ELO go's up so slow even if you have a 10 win streak, your boost doesn't change (or so I think...). Maybe for everytime you get three wins in a row you get a double elo boost for the last win? so right now my wins/losses change my ELO by 12 or 13 (which I assume its pretty much the same for everyone), but on my third win (in a row) I get a boost of 25? I think it would help get people who are good get better/ more challenging games and smurfs would not be in low elo for so long...

I dont know, just a thought...

Already exists, just not in the form you're suggesting. When you start ranked games, your Elo gain/loss for your first 10 games is much greater and then gradually decreases as you play more games. Good players rapidly gain Elo at the beginning, so there's no issue there.

Once you've established yourself, your Elo should change slowly.
