Your w/l doesn't matter. It's your LP and how well you do in placement matches. If you keep winning at that rate, though, you'll start jumping divisions.

**** like this promotes having more than 1 account just to play ranked. i ask for advice on how to gain and people in igher divisions tell me dumb stuff for this reason, to make a new account over and over.

Actually, I misread your question, for which I am sorry.

Your hidden MMR, which is the old Elo system, has to do with where you are placed. If you had a higher Elo from a previous season, you will start higher. As it is, your w/l ratio matters much less than the Elo gained from your wins.

Again, sorry for misreading.

I went 7 wins 3 loses in my placement matches and ended up in Silver V but I had no ranked history in previous seasons though. Just make sure you keep winning despite the LP gain. The higher your wins are, the higher your MMR goes; therefore, you get more LP and possibly (like Larias said) jump a division if you win your promotional series.
