STOP making us not gain % after a few losses

Been trying to get this diamond cog gear, unfortunately while on a roll at Onyx 2, while I was at 92% I suffered a few losses, it’s now at a point where it’s impossible to gain % as I won 3 games in a row at 77% and gained nothing, lost a game and went down to 66% don’t give me BS about ranks or how well I’m playing, it’s your ranking system stopping my % flow, have to give up on tdm now because of your silly ranking system, I don’'t gain % anymore

Where did you place on your team during your win streak? How were the other teams ranked on your streak? Do you play on a stack or solo? Where do you normally place on your team in general? Where did you place on the team when you lost? How were those teams ranked on your losses?

All of this matters.

Had 2 MVPs during the 3 game win streak, the other team out ranked us, they had 2/3 onyx 3s while we had a gold 2, an onyx 3 and 3 onyx 2s, we were playing as a stack but so were they as they all had similar gamertags, it’s nothing to do with placements, before I got these few losses, I’d gain even when I was bottom of the team

Yes, it has everything to do with those placements.

I refer you to a similar post I made last week:

Just because you’re winning games doesn’t mean your individual contribution has been high.

This is true. Especially if you are constantly in a stack with the same people. @API wrote out a detailed explanation a while back that I read recently and have been applying towards this season. So far, I believe he nailed how the ranking works.

Every loss I have had thus far has not resulted in going down. This includes solo queuing and with a team. Even one where we had a quitter and we got stomped with me top of my team at 15 kills to the 50 kills of the opponent in a koth match.

You truly have to perform the best you can on every game, never leave even if you are losing. Outperform your teammates as much as possible and lastly, you can’t play in the same stack every single game and expect to move much after reaching a certain point. If you play in the same stack you become rated as a team and not as an individual. If you break off and start playing by yourself or with other teams it will realign your true skill.

As an example:
If you are playing 5 games against people perhaps at a slightly lower team skill level and you win 4 of those games and hypothetically you are at mid to bottom of your team on those games. Should you move up in rank?

You lose the 5th game - should you go down?

It’s likely that even with the 4 wins, if the system predicted you should be performing better than you were and you don’t meet or surpass this - you likely move either very little (on the multi decimal level) which means when you finally get a loss - you have to pay up with rank percentage. If you constantly outperform and get MVP or just do better than you usually do on your same team your loss will be little to potentially zero depending on the opponent.

Definitely can see your fustration, but raging on forums isnt really going to get you anywhere. Its best to post any constructive feedback and discussion in the main Ranking system discussion and feedback thread so TC can see all discussions in one place.

Please use the link provided above. This allows TC to have one discussion with all the feedback, and concerns with the ranking system.

Thank you.
