If you only want fun go in normal bg and not in RATED bg. The name itself should convince you that it's a competition and even if it can and must be fun it has to have some inconvenience to stay a competition.
Blizzard is already giving up the concept of ranked team of 10 players because it would be too hard for normal puggers to play in rbg. At least let blizz give some advantages to teams who really want to compete.
PS : Tha'ts already annoying that we don't have rank 1 awards because of this system of ranking by players...
I think you took that one phrase out of context and kind of skipped over the major issues I brought up. The only thing this system has over last season is that dedicated teams
(same 10-15 people every game) from s9 that had a high MMR are now sitting on their high MMR again.
If you think they deserve to be there simply because they've been playing together for a few months then so be it.
Here's the big problem though...
Say I progress to 2400 with 9 other guys one night. Cool, sweet, done.
Now I put together a similar but slightly different group (everyone is raging because Fred and Angus decided to grow bubblegum instead of play with them).
Our team MMR is now 2200 and most of us are at 2400.
And by gosh, we got Battle for Gilneas and the other team (2200) mowed us over at Waterworks and we lost.
Every 2400 player on our team loses about 35 rating, our team MMR drops to about 2130 and we start all over.
So where's the logic behind all of this? Since the system chases your team MMR, progression is incredibly difficult unless your personal rating is less than or equal to your team rating. I can technically beat a 2700 MMR team (in my dreams) when I'm sitting at 2400 but I wouldnt gain anything because our team MMR was below my rating.
