I’ve been a long time proponent of Gears 4 rank system as being as accurate as it can be and assumed Gears 5 to be the same, until now.
@TC_Octus or anyone else at coalition really needs to clarify how placement is calculated. Is it based purely on leader boards? If so this brings on further questions and begs the question of why that data isn’t inclusive in the match results.
I’ve also sent the data via Twitter.
Unfavored to win
Won the match
I lost nearly 10% rank.
The only way I could have done ‘better’ would have been more kills… More caps… More points… But to what measurable end?
Why were there negative points for rounds 2 and 3? What was that pulled from? If someone on leader board outperforms my total skill points… Fine, okay… But why am I personally losing my own total skill points for dominating that unfavored match and pulling through with a win as a team?
I’m assuming you don’t have a screenshot of the scoreboard? You definitely lose rank if you don’t dominate the noobs. Getting killed by them more than you should and not killing them enough is a way to derank. I’d ignore objectives all together when discussing rank.
So to what measurable end? Well, the ranking system is what measures how many kills/deaths you should get against them.
As you know, the answer is to just get more kills and/or less deaths, perhaps even against specific opponents within the match. Don’t let a noob put you on swords . I don’t think that’s a bad answer.
Now I’m not saying your negative points were earned. I can’t see the scoreboard, so I can’t make any assumptions and I know you’re well above an Onyx 3 player. Just making some general statements and I haven’t lost points whenever I solo or duo queue.
I know it looks like it would be ‘hard to say’ whether losing 73 points is fair or not just cause i lost the game having good stats… but from experience by tracking my rank most games during gears 4… I can confirm even if i lost games but did well, my percentage would easily increase
I honestly think there is something wrong with the way they calculate whom is favored. I think total score doesn’t matter or eliminations. It might just be a K/D thing. I been on some really bad random teams and lost 2-0 only to see that we were heavily favored to win. A couple of those matches I was shocked to see I gained tier points. Keep bringing it up on Twitter I don’t think they pay much attention to there own forums. At least I seen Octus reply to some about this issue, even though it was a text book reply.
