Are you kidding RiotKiddington? Because I seriously think you're kidding.

The OP's post isn't exactly hard to decipher, it should be extremely obvious what he meant to anyone at all that has played ranked. I'm literally dumbfounded by your response @_@.

@OP:

Provisional matches aren't exactly an uncommon feature in ranked based matchmaking. It's there to help get people to their respective elo's quicker, and it's there to stay. I'm sure if you had won more of your initial matches than you had lost, you would not be complaining right now. Besides, there are multiple factors that can determine the spread of elo, as I'm sure you already understand by reading your second post. Just because you are 50/50 with your win/loss record, doesn't mean you will be back at the very start at 1200 again. Even without the provisional matches granting more elo than usual, you could still be 1100 elo despite being even. Not every match gives an exact gain/loss, as you already know, so how can you expect to be neutral despite having an even win/loss record? Still confused? Well how about this then...

"Now its 5-25 elo a game. I know that elo varies depending on the average elo of the two teams."

Read that again. You wrote it. Even without the provisional '10' matches, your elo could be vastly different to the 1200 'neutral' state. Random matchmaking gives a variance of elo gain/loss, not a static amount. I'm confused as to how you seem to have failed to realize this, and blamed your elo on the first 10 matches. If you want to get higher, win more. If you want to win more, get better. With time, your elo will rise. It's as simple as that.
