why do i have 28 wins and 24 losses and my elo is lower than 1200?

why did my last 2 ranked win games give me only 8 and 7 elo, then my last loss takes 18?

how is this fair? i wish the elo system was a lot more transparent.

I realize your confusion. I'll do my best to explain. Its not as much about winning and losing as who you play when you win or lose. The ranking system is based on level of difficulty. This can be very annoying because you may get a team with a lot lower elo than you while your team will have an average elo around you and you will lose a lot.

No, its not fair. Neither is life, but those who rise in the rankings find a way to overcome it. You can whine all you want, but if you want to be elite you must play with and beat the elite.

Maybe this will make you feel better. Those games where you lose 18 elo? You helped 5 others gain 18 elo each. You're helping them get out of elo hell by sacrificing yourself to be forever doomed in it. What a saint.

It was pretty easily explained. You won against some decent teams. Then lost against a bad team. thats not 100% correct and It's not as black and white as that, but you should have an understanding of how it works now. If not then we can't help you anymore

assuming the system is not exploitable
the way the system works is irrelevant
since it works the same way for every player
