CSR Gains are kinda screwy with the MM now, just played Strongholds on Mercy in PG even tho I was the one getting caps because there was a Champ n Onyx on my team I got jack for CSR, so basically that win was for nothing cos of how we now get CSR but if I hadnt made caps I would of lost CSR.
Seriously Ranked Arena seems broke AF right now. Matchmaking parameters need tightening now because if you randomly get placed with Champs/Onyx you will literally get no CSR for winning at Plat/Diamond level when play against other players your level, all because you randomly got Champs on your team. I get the CSR inflation was a issue that needed resolving but now its created other issues. Its like a repeat of Destiny right now, solve one problem and 5 more appear.... come on guy don't repeat the mistakes of others.
This has nothing to do with the recent fix, it's always been this way. If you have players with much higher MMR on the team than you do, the system assumes they did the work. This is true of almost all Ranking / Skill systems out there today. All else being equal, the system assumes the better players should get more credit for you winning. Also, in general, if you had an amazing team, none of you will get much CSR if the outcome was as expected. It means the match wasn't informative and nothing you did proved you were any better than the system already thought you were. It expected you to win, and you did, therefore your CSR is already correct and it doesn't need to go up any more.
That said, we are working on a feature that will better account for your in-game performance, so if you actually outplay Champs you can end up with more credit, but that's a pretty far down the road.
The reason you get Champs/Onyx on your team is also not related to the fix, but simply related to the population at the time you searched in Proving Grounds.
- You search Focused
- A Champion waits for more than 60 seconds
- You also wait for more than 60 seconds
- There's no one else as good as you waiting
- You will match with the Champion
Otherwise, the Champion players will never match with anybody ever once the population gets low, which doesn't seem fair.
Fortunately, there are a lot more Platinum than Onyx/Champion players, so this won't happen super often.
