Path of legends win x’s

My question is, at the start of the season if you finished ultimate champion, you start the next season with a win multiplier of x6 that decreases as you move up. Do these first couple games where you are winning one game and moving up 6 steps count as 6 games towards your win percentage or just one? If so is that not inhibiting how high your actual win percentage could be by removing games?
