A couple quick questions for you Josh:
1. Do I deserve to be a champion in Doubles?
2. Furthermore, what is the point of me playing the game when I win 1 game and only go up 1 CSR? When I lose 1 game I go down 15 CSR?
I am playing to just get demoted... Ruins the game for me. Essentially it is a backward grind. I personally believe you guys should have done another rank reset with the release of the divergence of CSR and MMR. Sadly my time towards Halo will decrease because why would I play if I am going to grind just to go backward?
Thanks for your input/time.
On the matter of question 2: The point, aside from playing for the sake of playing, is to have your public rank be an accurate reflection of your skill. If you don't go up when you win but do go down when you lose, it means your CSR is too high. So while you may like that because it makes you seem better, it's not really true. So it comes down to what you want out of your CSR: for it to be accurate or for it to be inflated. If your biggest concern is having as high a CSR as possible to impress others, then by all means, stop playing now. Your CSR this season will not go up until your MMR and CSR match. Next season things will start off corrected, so your CSR next season should never get inflated, which means next season you can expect it not to be as high as it is now anyway. If you like playing the game and want your CSR to correctly reflect your skill, then keep playing this season; eventually your CSR will match your MMR, and you'll know when you start gaining normal amounts of CSR for wins again.
They considered ending the season but decided it was too early in the season to do so (also not everyone was affected by the CSR problem). So they opted for this forcible CSR correction instead to stop the inflation from getting worse.
I would like to see the previous ranking system re-implemented. In my opinion , it was a much better system. The current system makes winning seems futile with going up 1 CSR for a win , and dropping 15 for a loss . I have an MLG player on my friend list who also is stuck in this situation I’ve noticed he only goes up 1 point for a win as well in slayer as an upper level onyx player . If he’s not good enough to hold rank, then who is ?
i would like you to please consider changing back to the old ranking system it was such a good system and made grinding and playing halo 5 enjoyable .
The problem with the ranks from the old system is that for some people, they were wrong (either too high or too low). In your friend's case, his public rank is too high compared to his true skill. So if you like for people to have ranks that don't accurately represent their skill, then go ahead and continue to call for a return to the previous system.
Ever consider the idea that how good you feel you or your friend are may not be as good as you actually are? If your friend is only gaining +1 CSR for a win in slayer where his rank is high Onyx, then that means his true skill is not high Onyx. Just because he's "MLG" doesn't mean he's automatically a high Onyx player.
