Like I just won a Guardian match 3-1.
I went 15-3.
Both times I was the leader I survived.
I killed their leader once.
Match lasted over 20 minutes.
I need to have a word with TC. I don’t know how it works in other modes but in Guardian it’s clear to me the 2 most important things (surviving as leader/killing enemy leader) are not accounted for in determining points awarded. Seems the ranking system just wants that phat K/D + win, and maybe, MAYBE, it will award points.
But it’s really fun to get placed way, way below your true rank, so you can take huge pride and accomplishment in grinding your way up to where you should be /s
To be clear, I get the reasoning, but it’s too extreme. It should place you a tier below your true rank imho.
This rule of making everyone place bronze or silver after placements is stupid and makes the placement matches pretty pointless. You can play at master level and get placed in silver, and some gold player can play at gold level and get placed in silver. That’s fair right?
LOL, I’ve been in Diamond 2 for few days unfort. Every time I drop little lower in percent I get a decent team, when I’m at promotion it’s always afkers, feeders, green players, quitters and (worse of all ) chokers against a stack or more. Then there’s all that and then the games that have icebound/bunker in rotation and ppl actually vote for them.
System might be working the way it’s intended, in fact it’s not really all that different than before from my perspective but, matchmaking really soils the entire experience.
You lose more points at lower rank tiers. It’s relative to the 20k total and the fact only a certain percentage of players can be in each given rank.
You lost 6k but look at how much you stood to gain, about the same. The more you go up the values you gain and lose become less, if you go down it’s the opposite.
Around Gold to Onyx values are between 500-100 in terms of gain/loss.
Diamond + the values are like 70.
D3 and Masters it’s around 10-30 on average ( you can gain more than the here if you perform exceptionally well, just like any other rank ofc).
Losing a 100-200 in Diamond is about the equivalent to this. That could be the difference of a tier because D1 doesn’t start till 19400 or so and at that point there’s only 600 points left in the system between Masters and the other D tiers.
Point is, it’s based on what skill group you’re currently in relative to how much points are left to be gained. (20K)
The higher you go up the system places more expectations on your performance relative to however everyone else is performing at and below your skill group. At lower ranks the system can be very liberal with the points because the expectations for someone perceived to be in the bottom/middle percent of players aren’t high.
So if you perform well you will gain a ton of points until it moves you to a skill group where the performance expectations meet whatever skill level you’re at but the amount you gain or lose from that point is based on what’s left.
That’s mad I don’t think I have ever lost the many points before, I have gained and lost over 1000 points but not over 2k, I have been diamond 3 I’m gears 4 and diamond 2 in 5 but struggling to get there again now lol
I understand what your saying I play with this person and every game I ask how much points you lost on that match and its always in the 1000’s and its so that good players have to go through this making them want to quit this game.
For every match you play and win points would be taken away on one bad game for all you worked for since you’ve been online and that’s the problem that’s going on there should be no way for this to be happening to anyone especially when you win a game
