So you only gain ELO if you win correct?

#1ShieldSlashPosted 12/7/2012 11:54:43 AM
Just started playing ranked games. I've been playing pretty decently (8.5/3/4.7) but the teams I've played with have been pretty bad. So does it matter if you play well or if you just get the win?

Thanks in Advance.

Yep. K/D ratio doesn't mean anything.

You are correct. Individual stats have zero effect on elo.

It's only if you win. ELO is designed to reward players based on the likelyhood of winning (albiet for chess, so it was 1v1, bringing it over to a team game inherently brings complications).

Although theoretically if you had a low enough ELO and played someone with a high enough ELO and lost you could still gain points. But since the matchmaking won't let you do this (it matches you with similar ELOs) it is impossible.

Ah. That's kind of annoying. Thanks!

if I duo up with someone who is several hundred elo higher and we win do I gain more than I typically do?

gaining roughly 10-13 solo currently and if I lose its typically 12-14 for some reason

900 is the average of this game, or was at least for season 1, so I'm going to use that figure.
If you go ABOVE the average, like you most likely are, you will win less than you lose, simply because you are above the curve.
If you go BELOW the average, it is the reverse. You'll end up gaining more Elo than you lose.

Question, how did world trade center building 7 (the -3rd- building to fall) collapse during 9/11? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnnjIzamnJo

Average is probably between 900-1000 then. My point still stands as long as you are above/below the average.
