Halo Wars 2 CSR Changes

Two things:
1. It looks like the bar for champ is CSR 1600 but top 200 only (as opposed to the 250 I think was mentioned?)
2. I'm curious about the results of this little experiment... Can you tell us what was learned or gained, and/or if this will roll into season 11+?
Sooooo flames or non-flames aside...
Wrensi, I know y'all are obviously busy, so, whenever you get around to it, but... Any answers to the above?

Hey, sorry for the slow response.

1. Yes, it should be 1600 for Champion and the top 200 instead of 250.
2. Unfortunately can't get too in depth with the results at the moment, but moving forward it will remain for Season 11. I will try to give you a more in depth answer with the season rollover.

Looking forward to it.

I know there is a lot of questions, but there will be more information coming from Josh Menke regarding the CSR changes soon.
Is it going to be posted in this subforum or will it be posted in a new forum post?

So i was champ for a day then it was taken away, feelsbadman
>uninstalls game
between that and losing 30 points whenever i forget to queue while appearing offline and getting searched out by smurfs im so done
Let's see it bud I just played with you
So I’m not the greatest player in the world but I’ve been playing rts for 20 years now. My frustrations with the ranking system is that if none of your buddies are on, and you play random 2v2 it’s silly to get a silver teammate when your a diamond player. I can’t hold off a double rush while my Allie turtles... so that leaves me with 1s playlist but I’ve played Starcraft for years 2v2 so it’s disappotinting to constantly lose . If your ranked high in ones then assume I need an Allie 2v2 who is same rank.
I'm not sure if this is the right location for this question, but why is my friend a different CSR than me in Season 11 2v2 Objective? We have only played 2v2 Objective with each other, and so we played the same people, won the same, lost the same, and yet he is a full rank ahead of me (I'm Diamond 4 and he's Diamond 5).
This happened last season too, yet I can't find any solid reason. I've never been knocked out of a game and then he won, I've never disconnected, and it's a fair spread on who actually controls the game.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks!

To my understanding there are theee things that contribute to your placement
-Your overall total MMR score which is a hidden stat but is basically the accumulation of your HW2 career
-your rank in said playlist last season
-how your placements go

I could be wrong on this but I'm pretty sure this is it.

Interesting. I appreciate the insight, he's just been razzing me about it and I can't explain what's causing the disconnect. I'll just have to play by myself to boost ahead. :)

Thanks!
Is it possible to be deranked within the same season? For example, if I'm currently a Diamond tier player, can I drop down to Platinum? I know that if you're a Champion you can drop down to Onyx, but does that apply to the other ranks as well if you constantly keep loosing or disconnecting?

No. The ranked season will not drop you from diomond to platinum or onyx to diomond or other ranks. Not sure why it is.

Champ is a tier within Onyx which is why you can go back and forth.
