Haha, this is the second post I've seen you reply to stating something about a bug? I don't see anyone reporting anything relating to a bug?
What I see is people having an issue with the fact that you can gain minimal points for a win and lose triple or more those points in a loss.
It's an unfair system. And if you want to try to bring in some logic of matches played and wins made. Me and my duo parter are only 2 matches apart. He has 2 more wins than me he managed while playing with someone else. But when I win with him. I get 9 pts and he gets 14. But when we both lose, I lose 25pts and he only loses 23.
To add fuel to the fire, he's higher up on the league than I am. So why should someone who's closer to the top, lose less points and gain more than me? If I'm ranked lower than he is on the scheme of points, how does it make sense that it is harder for me to get to the top than he who is already closer?
So what you're trying to say is. If someone plays MANY games, they might as well uninstall or start a new account. Because the hope of ever getting past a single loss is pointless. You'll have to hold a winning streak for 10+ games JUST to have hope after a single loss. That could occur from a simple afk or trolling rager.
So yes, the system is broke. It does need work. There are circumstances that aren't favorable to people that end up in unlucky matches.
I just achieved a winning streak. Yay 27pts. Then I lost a game -25. So, in order to make progress I am required to have another winning streak. How many winning streaks do you see on the league list? It's not often you win 3 games in a row. The chances of having those odds are very slim. Something like 1 in 10 people on the list have a winning streak.
And what if I lose again? Even after two wins? If I am gaining more wins than loses, can I even progress? Or will I continually just go backwards. Even if I win two, lose one, win two, lose one, win two, lose one.....I'm gaining more wins but am I gaining more points?
Do my points continue to decrease because I have played more games? Do they continue to decrease because I have made more wins?
So yes, once again, the system appears to need some work.
And just so this isn't complete complaining. the system needs to be based on your position in the league. And when you lose and win points, it needs to be relative to each other. it wouldn't be so bad if when I won, I gained 3 pts. And when I lost, I lost 2-4 pts. But when you lose 3 games worth of points in a single loss. That's a severe mental setback.
