Your wins minus losses plays a bigger factor than number of wins.
Your "normal ELO" is a hidden value that works like ranked ELO and determines who you are matched against.
With each win your hidden normal ELO increases and with each loss, it goes down.
How much it goes up or down depends on your ELO compared to the average. If yours was lower than the average you get a small bonus (if you win) or lose less (if you lose) if yours was higher you get less (if you win) and lose more (if you lose).
So if your wins=loses it most likely indicates that you are an average player.
If your wins>losses you are above average and if losses>win then you suck...sorry CBoD that's you...
That said, getting farther ahead on w-l means being matched against better players meaning its harder to win.
So the farther ahead you are, the exponentially better player you are...the converse is also true...
