Arena 0 Point Hotix - Blue Post

As many of you may have already noticed, there's been a recent change in arenas that can cause you to gain 0 points when you win.

Official Blizzard Quote:

We recently implemented a hotfix to address a bug that allowed Personal Ratings to exceed Matchmaking Rating. As a result, some players may notice that they do not gain or lose Personal Rating in the wake of a match. As more matches are played, these ratings will normalize and converge to the correct rating, and Personal Rating will then rise or drop accordingly.

In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the situation and make further adjustments if necessary.

What does this mean? Basically if your personal CR is higher than your MMR you will get 0 points when you win. However, losing will still cause you to lose points for both your MMR and CR. It is speculated that the cause of this hotfix could be a way to combat rating boosts, or perhaps a way to fix the higher than normal ratings we are seeing this season. It was mentioned on Twitter however, it was a fix to a bug that specifically happened in 5.4.7.

In my opinion, this could encourage the top of the ladder to sit their rating. This is due to the fact that the large majority of the top achieved their rating before the fix was implemented. However, inflation could negate this issue since the last season of an expansion usually lasts the longest and longer seasons seem to have higher inflation.

So, Questions.....

1. Why did CM_Lore and Brian Holinka need to "Look into it" and "Investigate" (just read their twitter posts) upon first hearing about the zero gains in rating?


2. Was the Lead PvP Designer not consulted or informed about this 'hotfix'?
It seems like it would fall under his purview.


3. If Holinka WAS in the know, were the implications fully explained to him as to HOW these CR/PR to MMR corrections would be made?


4. Given that SOMEBODY knew, why was the community not given a heads-up that this correction was coming?


4a. would that not have been a good idea? (to let us know what was about to happen!?!)


4b. Seriously, why was this not in the patch notes / why no word of it until after players tweeted Devs, and Devs did some investigating?


5. Who is making these changes to the game without letting CMs and Game designers know what's about to happen? and Why?


6. Is there still a need to have a (hidden) Personal MMR separate from your displayed Current Rating?


#6 (above) is most important for upcoming re-working of mmr/pr/cr system (you know it's coming)

good work detectives :)
Please use an appropriate signature; thanks! Use only common abbreviations and acronyms, and then give their definition as soon after their first use as possible. Occasionally, however, an abbreviation or acronym may be so familiar to intended audiences that it may be used without a definition. In fact, some may be more familiar than the full name. http://www.arenajunk...-rules-2272014/
