I know this has been asked (even by me at some point I'm sure lol) but what EXACTLY determines your rank? I know wins and losses plays a part, as well as the skill level of the competition but anything else? I can't recall if K/A/D matter along as damage dealt.I'm pretty sure all the other stats are taken into consideration with regards to your MMR, but as far as your rank is concerned (CSR), wins and losses is all that matters.
Depending on what the answer is, I have a follow up question as well if damage dealt does apply.
I knew about wins and losses for CSR (even know I just placed one of my lowest ever and had a very good win/lost ration... But I digress here...) But as far as MMR goes, if that is true, I must say I massively disagree with including damage dealt and accuracy even.
Accuracy because you can do extremely well (many people do too) and have garbage accuracy.
Damage dealt is a big concern for me. I've been thinking about this more in the last few months and it dawned on my friends and I that I generally have some of the lowest damage on the team. Not because I'm bad, but because I don't care if I get power weapons or not. To me, damage dealt can be very misleading.
For example, if I play with my buddy he gives me rockets usually because I'm better with them then he is. We could both have the same K/A/D but if I'm using power weapons, like rockets, I'll be a lot higher in damage then him as Rockets deal high damged. Same with sniper. I always give it to him as he's better with it. We have matches where I'm mainly just watching his sides/back while he shoots. We could have similar stats or the same even but he'll always have way higher damage because he had a power weapon and I didn't (and alot if maps have sniper lol) Does that mean I'm better then him or visa versa? No, not at all in my opinion.
If this is true and was more widely know, I think people would be pretty unhappy. Including damage dealt only encourages people on the same team to fight over weapons, or even worst, betray your teammates for them. Again, if this was true and more widely know, it would be an issue. Most people still think Halo is all about wins and losses and thats it, because that's what it used to be.
I don't know....Halo used to be only about wins and looses for ranks and in my opinion, it should only be about that (in team playlists obviously) I really feel like halo is starting to shift away from wins and looses are the only thing that matters, too wins and looses are important, but your personal stats matter too. I just don't think it's right in a TEAM playlist. Personal stats are great to look at, I LOVE stats!!! and are great references... especially when someone says something like your crap, but when they see your overall stats you make them eat there words lol
It would be great if we could actually find out 100% what determines your MMR and CSR. I'm sure it has been said before and I'm sorry for asking again but this is something that people ask a lot so maybe there should be a page explaining this in detail for anyone to see or something along these lines. Having something in game would be even better but I know that's not going to happen... in Halo 5 at least. One can hope in Halo 6.
