Hey
Just wondering if the elo for premade teams is different to solo queue in summoners rift because i'm currently at 8-2 and my elo is 1219 whereas on summoners rift if i were 8-2 my elo would be about 1500 as it starts at 1200 and approximately raises by 50 for the 1st lot of games.
Hope this makes sense.
Any help is appreciated

The starting point for TT elo is much lower. Me and my team won our first 5 matches and got a rating below 1200. But, we still get the giant amount of elo for winning around 45. The same goes for losing though.

my next question is if you look at the leaderboards the 15th spot atm is a team on 5-0 and 1532 elo. How did this happen?

Whenever a thread like this comes up everyone seems to just say "elo starts lower" and writes it off. I would like to know why it starts lower. Doesn't this mean there is a much smaller percentage of players that are bronze, silver, gold, and platinum in teams than solo queue? What's the reason for needing to gain 250 rating before you are bronze instead of just 50 rating?
