question about elo gains

#1og_megamanPosted 1/17/2013 1:54:51 AM
is there a method to getting more points per match or is it random?
because i play a ranked game i get +14, my friend plays one he gets +42?

your first ~20 games will net different values then the normal gains everybody else gets

You start gaining about +13 after you've played enough ranked games, the first ones give or reduce more elo. After that you can gain more by going premade with someone with a higher elo (the one with the higher elo gains less)

it also depends on the teams.

theres a team thats "expected" to win in every match. they gain less elo if they win, and lose more if they lose.

the team thats "expected" to lose however will gain more if they win and lose less if they lose.

also, sometimes if you're duo Q the higher elo player of the 2 players will sometimes get like +3 if you win or something like -17 if they lose.
