If the direction this game is going is to encourage people to play ranked in a party, why take away all the MMR people had previously gained in party? I was 4.5k pre-patch, now 3.8k. I don't see how that's fair at all, as I earned it *this* season. What is the incentive to start over if I'm just going to rank up again with the same exact people? I've always played with just my friends who are about the same MMR as me- we earned it together, no boosting, tricks, etc. It already was unfair that having high party MMR influenced your solo game matchmaking pre-patch, why double punish party MMR players?
