Why am I losing so many points in ranked play?

I don't feel like I can ever get ahead in ranked play. I don't understand why I'm losing so many points for every loss. I just got done with a ranked game where I pulled a 10.0 KDA on janna. Both teams were very even and we lost the game with one fateful teamfight. Why am I losing 25 points for this game? That is crazy. What is going on?

I don't want to feel like I'm being punished for doing my job and playing an even game. You can't tell me that Riots current model for the game is to pull a 10.0 KDA on a pubstomper to carry the team to victory.

You lose the same amount as your team, I think. And I know that beating a team of much higher rank means you get more points, but I'm not sure if losing to a team with much lower rank also means you lose more points. Because clearly if you get 10KDA with Janna, then you are most likely quite a bit above everyone else, hence you just pulled your team's average rank and caused them to be matched with those above their average skills.
(This was a very serious problem before in S1 where average ranking gets pulled out of whack due to low player base, causing what is known as Elo Hell--if you win enough, you will get matched with people of much lower rank, then put on purple side of the map).
