ive been doing some ranked on eu and i have a question.

for the first 10 games i didnt have any elo and it didnt show any +/- after the game.

for my 11th game i gained 35 elo, but i see my friends only have like +/- 14 each game.

so how are elo gains/ losses calculated?

You won't get an ELO for your preliminary matches.. It is secretly placing you in different brackets depending on how well you do. Before your ELO stabilizes you will receive more/less ELO per win. As time goes by you should start to end up near where your friends are at the + - 14.. I have over 300 ranked games this season and I get about 12-13 elo loss/gain per match.
