Win at +0 point


#1

Hello,

I really like the new matching system, which seems less restrictive than the previous one. However I would really appreciate if the +0 point for a win didnt exist anymore. Maybe a minimum of +1 for the symbol ??


#2

You actually get +0.xx … But it really isn’t cool to see a +0 you are definitely right there.


#3

Actually it’s not a bad idea to see the real number. Like +0.45. Definitely better to see rather than “+0” :grinning:


#4

the rating exchange system is fair as it is.

If the minimum point gain for first were artificially set at +1 then in theory players would be able to trivially boost their ratings by joining rooms full of bronzes (and taking the +1.00 rather than +0.05, for example)… not saying anyone WOULD necessarily do that just to climb places on the GM list, but at the same time it’s not a behaviour you’d want to encourage


#5

I get that, but at the same time a lot of gms don’t choose to join rooms full of bronzes, but are given rooms full of bronzes and silvers by matchmaking.


#6

Then obvs the problem is with the matchmaking algorithms / lack of a large enough skilled playerbase if that happens regularly.

Being matched with a room full of sub-1200 players is annoying sure, but giving GMs a full rating point for meaningless victories over them that the rating system implies they’re expected to win ~99.9% of the time isn’t a solution and would defeat the purpose of having ratings.


#7

I was more meaning to maybe change the matching system to prevent win at at less than 1 point to happen. Match player only if everybody can at least win 1 point.

Otherwise maybe seeing the real number would be slightly better (seeing +0.3 pt would be better than +0 point :-D)

Others might enjoy playing against people over 1k rank away. I would prefer to wait 15 minutes to play with people with similar rank.


#9

that seems fair

Pro guys, since quick games dont give us xp points,i think its better to play in custom games, its better than waiting long queue times and gaining 0 rank points :slight_smile:
