Hi, I just started ranked and I'm wondering how much placement matches I need to win to get to the gold rank? I would also be interested in finding out how much placement matches there are and also the elo brackets.

So far I have won all four of my placement matches and am wondering how much more I need to win to get gold.

depends, but most likely 4 will not get it. play all 10, theres no use thinking anything. Placement matches can be worth 50~11 elo points, you simply don't know how much your gaining because elo gains are based on relative elos of teamates and enemies.4-0 could be 1400, could be 1250, most likely its around 1300. AT best you need to win 6 matches for gold. At worst you need to win like 20. Most likely 8~10 wins in a row will get you gold.

8-0 is pretty much the minimum. As 6-0 had me about 1435 elo. averaging about 39 elo a game.

You start at 1200, you'll be getting about +45 per win. You have to play all 10 to get a rating, if you don't you will not get a badge. If you win all 10 you will be ~1650 elo, which is well within gold. If you win 9 and lose one you'll be ~1560 elo, still within gold. Winning 8 and losing 2 will get you to ~1470 elo, but don't worry you'll still have 40 elo change per game after and could get above 1500 in one more game.

One final question, say I were to reach gold then keep playing and fall below gold before the season ends would I still get the gold rewards?

if your top rating, starting after you finish your 10th game, is 1500 or higher, you get gold rewards.

10-0 for sure. 9-1 should be gold. 8-2 will most likely put you just under 1500.
