Anyway, this is pretty cool. I really don't understand why this isn't shown to people, even if it was private.
Also, for the lulz hotshotgg's Dominion elo is 1951 with an 18-4 record. Figure that one out.
Queue dodges don't affect normal elo, at least last I heard. Someone should test it with this. I queue dodge a lot in ranked to keep my rating down and my w/l high /shrug
If hotshot's Dominion Elo is that high, it's probably at least partially based on normal/ranked Elo (so it could be that when Dominion was released, your starting Elo was partially based on your normal Elo). It's unlikely that he could get that high going 18-4.
