You're a joke man, I've solo'd to Onyx on multiple accounts, you really shouldn't talk about stuff you have no grasp of. It's not hard to solo to Onyx if you are good enough and know what it takes, but I guess those who can't do it have to satisfy themselves somehow, maybe by trying to discredit others saying its luck. Just cause you can't understand what is required to get Onyx doesn't mean it's luck.
Yes YOU ARE...and count your blessings. BTW if you got ONYX at any point, it is easy to maintain as your starting CSR each month will be close to it. Talk to me when you start bronze and have to work your way up now...not when there were 100 people playing in the pre-season.
Yeah I must be so damn lucky then getting Onyx every season.
Interesting...the night i played and spoke about I played 13 Slayer and 1 SWAT, but you chose to focus on 10 SWAT games spread over a few nights. Selective sampling is the basis for bias and you chose to select only those games to support your opinion. And, thank you for supporting my point. If you have crappy teammates, you tend to lack good support and get killed a lot as well. So if you end up in a 2 on 2 or a 2 on 3 with someone who can't play very well, you might as well be on your own in a 1 on 2 or 3. Kind of hard to get a high K/D even with 19 or more kills. That's my whole point...CSR is a team rank not a player skill rank. It should really be a TSR- Team Skill Rank since it has the least to do with an individuals skill as a player and the most to do with who you are teamed up with.
You lost most your matches cause you didn't make enough of an impact for your team to win, you went even/neg in most. (looked at like 10 swat games)
Exactly right on. 3 people who can play can carry a 1 CSR to champion, but trying being champion in a team always with 3 noobs.
I agree with you man, but unfortunately thats the matchmaking system for you. I've seen diamond players who have no kills and over 30 deaths. It's absolutely atrocious
They shouldn't place you based on whether you win or not, they should place you at your overall performance, like the top 4 from both teams advance, while the bottom 4 go down. Otherwise a noob can keep going up ranks if he/she gets good teammates.
Thats what im saying, i get people like that on my team. While diamond players on the other team have like 13 kills and 2 deaths. It's not always the team members fault but when you almost always get paired with people like that, it doesn't help
i went up against a platinum 4 guy in SWAT and he got 7 kills and 20 deaths.....
I do play a lot of games, Slayer is the main game type i play on Halo 5. I've probably played at least 70 to 100 games this season maybe more. I don't have a team to play with, i go solo. I went on a major losing streak the other day, some games i didnt do so well in, other games my team mates would either quit or just not play properly. Plus I've played against smurf accounts and that isn't fun.
but if you rank say, diamond in one season and you go 0-10 with like -8 KDA you still get platinum one. The CSR isn't based on overall skill, it's skill relative to last season. That's why those people who only play 10 games never improve. to get diamond, you actually have to play a lot of games....
Yeah i found it kinda hard to get to platinum. I mean im no champion at this game but im no noob either. When you have someone on your team with say 5 kills and 25 deaths, that's kinda the reason the game is one sided. That and getting matched with diamond rank players
I've seen too many people claiming that they aren't Onyx because they don't have a full fireteam/their team sucks. You can get Onyx pretty easily going solo. I'm Onyx 1765 in arena right now and I've played every match solo without a mic, just tired of all the excuses.easily huh? so either you suck or youre good...no in between? sound logic
Again, tonight I lost 90% of my matches...why you might ask? Did I not do well? Well most of those games I was in the top with K/D but not the rest of my team. Then we get the people who dashboard or quit leading to the always winning team of our 3 against the opponents 4. Why is it that when you are SR 140+ you get teamed up with multiple people with an SR less than 10, but the opposition gets SR's in the 80's and 90's?
Matchmaking is broken and keeps getting worse each new season.
People should never look at a CSR as something they earned entirely on their own, but more as a reflection of how lucky they are to have had good teammates.
I've seen your account. You've been Onyx since pre-season making it easier to maintain. I haven't seen evidence of starting from bronze for you. Also, having multiple accounts makes you a Smurf, or someone who already shows the like to win by skirting the rules.
If you claim to be so good, how come your performance stats in Arena don't crack anything close to the top 1% of the Halo population as shown on the Halo Division 5 population board? link here to your stats for your convenience -> Halo tracker site Stats
And to be fair, here are mine -> My Halo tracker stats
Clearly, through you're own choice of words you have proven yourself to be delusional and the greatest person in their own mind. One can not argue against something only relevant to a person's own mind.
So, for the rest of the world outside of your own narcissistic mind, by definition Team Slayer, SWAT, Breakout, WZ, Team Arena are TEAM based and you win or lose based on your TEAM performance as a whole. Again, just for you, here is the definition, from Webster's Dictionary for team:
<ul class="definition-list no-count"> a group of people who compete in a sport, game, etc., against another group
a group of people who work together
[/list]Now, if you are randomly assigned (albeit within certain parameters using CSR) with 3 other players, it requires some luck to get a team that can play well together and have the skills required to beat another team—especially those that are NOT random and play together all the time.
I'm sure baseball, football, and hockey would be interesting if before every game, players from all teams were randomly assigned to a team. Hey look! LeBraun James played this week with the Knicks, The Heat, Lakers and Suns and lost in all the games! Guess he can't play basketball.
So, if you would like to show me and others to prove your point of "... if you are good enough and know what it takes...", then please play solo in a team Slayer game, just you, 1 versus 4 others and record your great win over 4 other players as a SOLO player to show the world how you, and only you, know how to and are good enough to win.
...Oh, and by the way... GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
