Quick background story. I was gold 2 at 94.54%, I won 6 matches in a row performing decently, still 94.54% , I lose one match, now im at 89.92%.
Whats the point of having “advanced algorithms” and “improved ranking system” if they dont work? I dont know a single person that likes the ranking system as it is.
Just implement a straight forward system. You win? your rank goes up. You lose? your rank goes down . Easier to code, easier to understand, easier to be accepted by the fans.
You can even implement this simple yet effective system:
You win? You earn 3% x (6-your position in the team)
You lose? You lose 3% x (your position in the team)
You won by being number 1 in your team? Your rank goes up 15%
You lost by being number 1 in your team? Your rank goes down 3%
You win by being number 5 in your team? Your rank goes up 3%
You lost by being number 5 in your team? Your rank goes down 15%
You won by being number 3 in your team? Your rank goes up 9%
That way the player always knows how much a match will impact ranking, Instead of leaving it all fuzzy saying there are “complex algorithms” behind.
