I am so frustrated with your ranking and matchmaking. You just cant seem to get it right.The reason for ranked play is to give you an accurate rank. The point of ranked play is not that you always rank up. Instead you have to prove that you are better than it thinks. Also the population of h5 is pretty low and champion is just an onyx player. Complaining that a few games are not even is just silly. Trueskill 2.0 is only accurate 68% of the time.
1. can you stop allowing games like these to happen?
its so -Yoink-. a -Yoinking!- champ, onyx, and two diamonds vs. 4 diamonds. NOT TO MENTION THEIR LOWEST RANKED PLAYER HAD A HIGHER RANK THAN OUR HIGHEST RANK PLAYER. WHY DID I JUST PLAY AGAINST A CHAMPION WHEN I DIDNT HAVE A CHAMP OR EVEN ONE -Yoinking!- ONYX PLAYER ON MY TEAM TO EVEN IT OUT. This is now my SIXTH post about severely uneven matchmaking. STOP ALLOWING GAMES LIKE THESE TO HAPPEN. dont give me -Yoink- about hidden rank. a champ is better than a diamond 99 times out of 100. hidden rank, visible rank doesnt -Yoinking!- matter they got to champ for a reason. same with onyx vs lower level diamonds. enough with the -Yoink- excuses.
2. I have a 60% in percentage but I cant rank up higher than diamond three......................... meaning: I win A LOT more games than I lose but somehow I cant rank up. If i lose to a -Yoink- team like the example I pasted above, I lose rank. If I beat an evenly matched team I might not rank up. If I win 3 matches in a row, i might not rank up.
It was explained to me in my last post that this is most likely because the system hasnt learned anything about my skill... so in simple terms: if i beat a team than the system expects me to beat, I dont rank up. I get punished for winning essentially. IF HOWEVER i lose to a team like in the game that I posted above I LOSE RANK?!?! so if I beat teams im expected to beat i dont rank up. If i lose to teams that im expected to lose to, i lose rank. HOW THE -Yoink- DOES THIS MAKE SENSE.
WHY THE -Yoink- WOULD I CONTINUE TO PLAY HALO IF YOU ARE DEPRIVING ME OF THE ONLY INCENTIVE IN RANKED PLAY, WHICH IS TO -Yoinking!- RANK UP.
Read what I wrote. I talked about the incentive to CONTINUE to play ranked play. the incentive for us halo players is to rank up. that is why we keep playing. otherwise we would have played the initial 10 games as unranked players and stopped right when we found out our rank. we all strive to improve our rank, thus the incentive is the possibility of achieving a higher rank. if you take that away from players, there is no point in continuing to play rank. we would all just play social. This is one of the reasons why I am so frustrated. there is a very obvious inconsistency in how we rank up vs how we rank down.
champion isn't just another onyx player. champions are the best players in ranked halo 5. pros are champions. semi pros are low level champions/onyx players. I understand that technically champs are simply the top 200 onyx players (aka they are onyx players) but they're level of play vs the rest of the halo community's level of play is incomparable.
Diamonds and champs should not be in the same game UNLESS they are matched together... like i explained above. dont have a team of low level diamonds vs. a team of champ, onyx, and high level diamonds.... even it out.
complaining is not silly (my childish post and the way I wrote my post was silly and very rude (which I am sorry for 343 I do appreciate your hard work i just get frustrated from time to time)) this is why the forum exists. feedback from halo players to 343 and vice versa helps keep the community informed and involved on all the changes 343 is doing and gives us a way to provide feedback and what is working and what isnt. trueskill needs to improve.
