The game won't let you place very far below where you ended last season anyway. ... They clearly lock you in to a certain range. You can go up, but not too much down.Good points and I have noticed the same tendencies, but from my perspective that means that the MMR system is working as designed.
Once again, the fact that someone who is ranked within the top 100 FFA players in the world would devote the time and effort to create a smurf account simply to abuse the lowest ranking players is extremely condescending and self-righteous.
I'm not condescending or self-righteous at all though. You seem to want to quickly assume who I am as a person when you know nothing about me. When I made the second account I had the intentions of going into games to take a break from playing competitively for a change. Nothing wrong with that. And the people I did go up against, I have never matched up with those people ever again. Played them once and that was that. I'm sure they went on to their next game and completely forgot about the last game they just played.
You also seem to assume that I want to win every single game I play when I go into a game against low level players. This is also false. I like to have fun and goof around when I play. I make stupid challenges for myself. Use only sticky nades, come up with more ways of juking people, different strategies, hiding spots, try to ninja the whole game, etc. Most of the time those games end up having someone else win them. Do I care? Of course not.
Now do I goof around all the time? Of course not. I also just like to win a few games here and there but it's all in good fun. Most of the time I have players send me messages telling me I'm really good and add me as a friend. Never have gotten someone mad at me for it. No harm no foul. At the end of the day it's just a game so chill out with the dramatic comments.
