    I am playing on a new account and my mmr is near gold four and currently 6 and 2. If i do well for the next games am I guaranteed to place gold or high silver?

    What do you mean with "playing on a new account and my mmr is near gold four"? If u are playing on a new account which you have never played ranked on and this is your first time playing ranked on it, you don't have a MMR yet.

    That is not true. MMR (match making rank) is what makes possible for you to play blinds, and drafts as well. You start building MMR from the first PVP game you play. That's why the first blind game you do is with and against other unranked low level players.

    How do you know your MMR? it's supposed to be classified information that only riot games has access to.

    But in new accounts, I think the best rank you can get (if you go 10-0 in placements) is gold 5.

    You are talking about a leveling system which puts u against people the same level as u are. But the MMR existing in league of legends is based on the ranked play list and has nothing to do with normals.You only gain and losing MMR when u are playing ranked. Your ranked MMR affects your normals games of course but you can only affect your MMR by playing ranked games.

    Long story short, your performance in normals have 0 impact on your MMR in ranked.

    Their are a few 3rd party site which u can look your estimated MMR based on your rank and W/L.
    But hey, if im wrong please correct me but i am almost certain im right about MMR in lol :D

    This are just a few examples bro.. Im not the only one saying this. Ranked MMR is different and doesnt have impact on your normals. There are just different kinds of MMR I guess. But if people talk about MMR in league of legends 99,9% of the time they are talking about ranked. :D

    There is probally some kind of "different" MMR existing in normals. That is why, if u play normals sometimes gold/silver people are getting matched with diamonds or even above that (in normals or even aram).
