Smurphs are doing the same thing already. The good thing about the old system is that the top players in fact will reach the middle to top, and then no longer be at the bottom with the bottom players eventually actually being to grind their rank upwards. How it is now we see ranks not reflecting mmr, and lopsided matches 2+years into a game with the same players playing it for the most part.snickerdoodle wrote:Dr Menke has addressed this repeatedly. While this method is great for the people at the top, the retention for all the players the stomp on their way to the top is bad. If the system knows you aren't a bronze player, why should you have to play bronze kids to prove you aren't bronze? Other than, "I want to feel good and stomp all the bad kids" that is.AhaloAskewed wrote:Why not just try starting everyone at the bottom tier and actually grind the rest of halo 5s life until halo 6 comes out?
As it is right now, we see csr inflation. Instead of grinding upwards in rank, we are seeing players going downwards. What you believe to remedy the inflation (even though it is) ends up discouraging players from even getting on halo altogether.
This has nothing to do with players stomping on the lower guys. I'm not sure if you were trying to imply that's what I want, or if that's what kind of player I am. I'm not very high rank myself. Though each seseason we see problem with placements have we not? If that wasn't the case...then why are we here stressing over the placement and ranking system if it was working fine all along? Even with this new change we're still seeing people come to the forums being redirected here aren't we?
Menke repeatedly says that, while we repeatedly say this.
