because some people in 1200 are potential 1500+ elo players that just started ranked while most 1300 elo are players that have played 50+ games and showed that they belong there, i would know because im one of them

You only need to get carried TWICE to fall into 1300 elo from when you start ranked.

It's incredibly easy.

Now, if that 1300 has over 200-300 games played, I think he's just getting the benefit of the -100 +100 elo of the system (normally your true elo bounces between 100 less and 100 more than the elo you can achieve with ease.

That,and the fact that most 1200 players are new to ranked, therefore they can either have the skills of 700, 1200, or even 2.4k elo, but they just don't play enough to discover it.

1200 to 1300 is like a huge black hole in the elo system, as everyone starts with 1250..

You could be right, still 1200 or 1250 you get my point.

Because they THINK they are better than 1200 Elo players.

But in reality they are just 1200 Elo players that won an extra placement match.

Because of all the above reasons stated. Makes me sad I lost silver and dropped a little below 1300s. ._.

There isn't much difference between players in the 1100-1300 range.
