Can I be placed in the Gold league by the provisional matches?
If so, how many games am I required to win for that?
Thanks in advance.

I believe you can only be placed at Silver I. That's just from what I've seen in the forums.

I'm pretty sure you can, but it would require winning 9/10 at least, if not 10. That requirement fluctuates based on your standing last season, your MMR, how you did during the preseason, etc.

It depends on your S2 elo.

I was 1550 elo in S2 and did fairly poorly in my placement matches (6 wins, 4 losses), and got placed in silver 2.

If you were unranked in S2 and won all 10 placements you probably wouldn't get placed in gold. If you were diamond you would likely get placed in diamond.

yes you can there's an animation for no medal to gold, but no animation for no medal to platinum. Some guy had a video of all the ranked medal animations.

You'd probably have to win almost all of them though.

It depends on who you were placed against. I believe you earn more points based in your opponents are of higher skill/tier in your provisional matches.
