LOL I checked your service record to see if your one of those guys who get carried to Onyx and leaves that playlist for the rest of the season just so they can say "Yep Im Onyx behold my glory scrubs!" and then I wondered why someone who hasnt bothered to get ranked is complaining. And too be fair if you are just going for Onyx to never play that Playlist again cos Onyx level playing why should you be allowed to stay there if your not even going to try get better? Hence why I think a week inactivity in a playlist causing decay to your CSR would be suitable.
Uhh yeah, on this account, you record-stalking weirdo.
Absolutely no "rank decay" please.Bro you havent played Ranked since Fall 2016 Season, the reason we need rank decay is stop people just getting carried to Onyx or just grind to Onyx in FFA by coming 4th or 5th, for those players to never touch the playlist again.
And you don't "need" decay to deal with that, 1-3 month seasons serve the same purpose just as well.
Decay refers to daily/weekly losses, which is stupid, annoying and demotivating as all hell. It's the most annoying possible solution to a problem that has tons of other options.
Why do you care if other people have a certain rank?
Why do you think someone's service record would invalidate their opinion?
Why are you using the term "complaining" in a feedback thread
The point of decay and resets isn't to feed anyone's ego, it's to prevent currently-active players from being locked out of higher ranks in the event of the usage of a percent-distribution ranking system and/or leaderboards.
The current system only has one of those two issues, so the "people hitting 1500 Onyx and sitting on it problem" that you're talking about has nothing to do with the purpose of resets. 343 doesn't care if you feel bad that other players have the same rank, they care about keeping the ranks accurate & keeping people coming back.
Also, the "getting carried to Onyx" and "4th/5th/6th FFA grinding" issues in general are somewhat separate, as they don't require any kind of reset or decay in order to address. That's what the previous feedback thread was about. Those can be addressed in any ranking system, resets don't need affect their fixes. Using a decay system to address ranks that were inaccurate in the first place is just a "brute-force" way of dealing with it. It's the lazy-man's work-around which doesn't actually address the core cause.
A 1-week inactivity decay wouldn't be so bad though, I could see that being more balanced. It's the punishing of ALL players on a daily or intra-week basis through usage of an ongoing decay that's annoying. Even so, I think seasonal resets with rewards at the end would be more likely to keep people coming back by having a real "goal" with an end and start point to aim for.
