Yup, as you can clearly see, I am a n00b in terms of forums but I am a level 30 however and a little new to the elo system. After the resetting of elo, I got mine to upwards of around 1280 in 3 games. Then I lost one, a close game and went back to 1210. After going back and fourth, I realized I won around 3-4 games, (sometimes with a loss in between a game), and found that I lost all of the credit I earned in 3-4 games of winning with 1 loss. I simply do not understand why you lose so much when it takes so long to get up there. Winning 3 games and losing 1 somehow equals the elo out? I don't think so and it seems unfair. Someone please explain!
Edit: Recently: Was at 1314, won 2 to get to 1350. And lost 1 to get back down to 1309. Yay!
