If you are dropping 40 kills every match consistently, you are definitely Onyx 3, if not borderline Diamond because that is consistent and remember, if you are getting 40 Kills when against other Diamond players too, you are obviously skilled as when I go around with my Diamond squad, we suppress the opposition to the point where they get hardly any kills.
So in this case, only 1-3 people need to actually cap the ring. The team is so strong at killing that there’s no threat to the rings themselves.
Exactly my point.
To get 40-70 kills a game, you simply are not dying often.
Therefore, your kills matter a lot as it allows you to either capture the ring or defend it.
So you see, essentially the slayer is winning the match.
Trying to get kills and failing, is not the same as actually getting kills.
I stated that you need kills to rank up and those that do get them are the ones that are the higher ranks.
High ranks won’t do this.
Onyx and above normally have a good sense of where to be.
It would have worked because if true, they deserved the Diamond.
First of all, you getting a higher rank in Onyx but losing 2 matches just proves my point of needing to always win the match.
I’m not saying it doesn’t matter - ideally you want to win all your games but performances matter even moreso.
I don’t go down from losses or very rarely go down because I always try and maintain a high kill count. I do get a lot of caps, a lot more than most people, my average is 12 caps a match according to my stats but that doesn’t ever affect my rank.
The next part you say you got deranked by losing - but you say you were “consistent”.
When you say top 3 but not too 3 in the lobby - the game looks at it as if it was top 3 out of 10.
You are competing with your own team and against the other team - so against 9 players.
You lost because you couldn’t maintain the Onyx Rank in Skill Level in those matches.
No, it just expects one team to win over another however it looks at individual performance for individual rank.
You put a Onyx 1 in with 4 Diamonds and win 20x matches in a row and that Onyx 1 isn’t going anywhere in terms of rank.
