first games are worth 54+. starting at zero means you would not lose elo until you win which is weird.
10 losses at 0 elo would still be 0 elo. which is my problem with your idea
i feel you should start with elo that is actually reducible.
that way you actually know "where you are placed in the ranked system"
AND when you free yourselves of the lower side how good it feels to accomplish
If you always lose at 0, you belong at 0. You definitely don't belong at 1200 and troll every game, 9 players at a time for 100 games before you get to 0. That's trolling 900 players!!
If you're at 0, you troll 9 players, assuming all those 9 players are pretty decent and better than 0, those player are pretty much done with you in the next few games when they climb out of 0. They don't have to climb 50 games just to run into a huge wall of noobs again.
