The explantion is the following

The placement matches start between 1000 and 1250 MMR i believe..
Gaining MMR is based on 2 things. Off course wether you win or lose and the relative strenght of your team and the opponents team.
The MMR gain is increased in the first 10 matches BUT is still influenced by normal league rules.

Examples
If your teams average MMR is 1300 and their teams MMR is 1400 youl gain more rating if you win, but lose less rating when you lose.
If your for example a season 2 platinum 1 guy doing matchmaking with a bronze V friend, youl gain an EXtremely small amount of MMR as the platinum. But you will gain a lot of MMR as the bronze.

How this applies in your promo matches is that with every win you face more difficult opponents (higher average MMR)
When you lose a game the system registers that as a skill cap and you go back to the previous MMR.
After 10 games youl then be put in the league where your MMR is average.
Because you start at 1200 you both need to win all 10 matches AND play against higher MMR teams.
However MMR is very inaccurate untill youve played over 100 games, which is why MMR between 1000 and 1200 is considered ELO hell. Due to placement matches people get put where they dont belong

I won 7 of 10 and got placed in bronze, had 2 runepages and did a lot of practicing back then. My brother also won 7/10 games, he doesn't even have good runepages and got placed in silver II. This **** is retarded

Because i have reached 30 in the past month, and played my provosionals and got to bronze 2, i am now trying to go up, and i try to do everything i can in my games to win, i try to help my team, i talk to them and try to stop fights, i do everything i can to become a better player but i get really sick of always losing sometimes because of a troll kid.

Does goin to silver and gold make the time i spend in bronze worth it?

Must be because he as double the wins than his losses. I think it's based on your win/loss ratio? If so I might be in trouble...I am only almost 50/50 on my normals...

Could you just say if your brother has a better win/loss ratio in normals then you? Have a theory going lol...you have lost just over half of your wins. So maybe this contributes? I heard normals go into play of your MMR "hidden elo"?

8/2 -> Gold 5 -- it probably depends on how you end your games (your kda-statistics)
