In my placement matches, how bad can 1 loss screw me?

I went 1 win, 1 loss, 1 win, 2 losses, 1 win, 4 losses, and 1 win. I ended up in silver V.

To be fair, I finished season 2 gold, so that might have influenced things.

I had 9 wins and 1 loss on my placement matches. It placed me at 1495 Elo. After a few more games I dipped down to about 1400 Elo, and it placed me in Silver I.

I'm not sure if it placed me based off of my highest Elo or the current Elo.

You can easily get gold if you only lose one match... the thing that can change that is if you were lower last season. Are these your first placement matches?

1 loss sends you down to Elo Hell where you will never recover from again. D:
OR
It just means you won't be placed as highly as you would probably like.

That's all.

No matter which way you slice it you'll both be ending up in Hell!
