I think the system is most frustrating when you play with higher ranks because it will cause you to get “stuck” unless you do exceptionally well.
While the opposite is true of playing with people who use smurf accounts or are lower rank, the game loves to boost you in those matches.
There needs to a balance for those winning matches, getting MVP and Smooth Operator - especially if you get all 3.
A small 0.25-0.5% should be given out per win so you get something at least.
True it’s not a progression system but then if your winning 5-10+ matches and getting nothing then it diminishes the aspect of wanting to work towards something, especially if the system doesn’t recognise a skill increase then it should just equal out with a more severe drop for a loss.
I understand both sides of the argument though and i know TCs stance is such of Skill Based.
My own problem is that I play with such high ranks, winning 7-0 in 2v2s, dying once or twice if at all means our ranks do not move. One of us switching to a secondary account or playing solo and all of sudden rank starts shooting up.
