I keep seeing this term thrown around, but have been unable to find any definition of it. Can someone fill me in please?

Thanks

Elo is a rating of how well you play. So if you win all your games you will start playing with people who are better and around your level.

What the matchmaker does is takes everyone's Elo and makes sure they are all evenly matched. Though if there is a lack of people it might also match you with the first available.

Please don't post a rage topic on the forum about how matchmaking is bad. ELO can only do so much.

Also, it is Elo and not ELO. Elo is the name of the person who designed the rating system, ELO is the abreviated name of a 70s symphonic rock band.

You can't see your Elo unless you play ranked games. The normal game Elo is hidden.

I was stuck in bronze 5 then I started playing support Annie and realized that I won every game I played. So I continued playing until I got promoted. I kept winning once again and then o got banned for 20 days.
