    Why should MMR decrease when players abandon?

    I find it unfair and, quite honestly, stupid to have your MMR decreased because one player from your team abandonned the match, resulting in 4 v 5 or worse.

    Even a high MMR player would have some trouble in a 4 v 5 match.

    Why not just decrease the MMR for the abandonning player and not their teammates? The winning team can have its MMR increased (be it the 4 or 5 member team). But in case of lose, the team members of the abandoning player should not have their MMR decreased.

    What do you think?

    the reason it lowers the parties and not just the one guy is the fact it was being abused to sacrifice one guys rating to keep 4 others from losing it
