  • About winning/losing and how the ranked system works

    First of all i am really sorry if that has been discussed again BUT i have a really simple question maybe 2.

    1) Suppose a game starts and then someone decides to leave ,lets say at minute 20 . First blood has occured and the flow of the game was good enough! WHY the team that has a leaver must lose 25 mmr .I really ,like REALLY cant understand this. Is my logic strange or something? 4V5 game is most of the times unwinnable and all the times UNFAIR. I cant do anything to change that unfairness , but this can be easily fixed by not losing -25 mmr when someone has left the game and by left i mean ABANDONED . The only problem i see is that someone could leave on purpose so his team doesnt lose -25. Make it -10 then or something.

    2) Same goes when someone feeds intentionally couriers and goes level 1 mid and feeds.I will lose -25 mmr .WHY is that happening is my question ( i mean why we have to lose -25 when clearly we cant change the ending of the game. It will be 95% a lose!).

    I would like an explanation if possible ,i am thinking of that a lot time now ,thank you!

      I dont think thats a fix. I just think abandonment in ranked should be punished far worse than it is right now.
      Make a NON automated report system.
      I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
      Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
      The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters

        Does not matter since the probability of this 50/50 for each team and wont affect mmr spread. One day it is ur team next day the other team.
