Found an interesting twitter post from GC yesterday:


"Greg Street@Ghostcrawler
@Ghostcrawler We have a better idea to handle folks who sit on high ratings that we'll talk about as soon as we are sure it works. "
source:  https://twitter.com/Ghostcrawler


What do you think they are going to do? Blizzard already said they dont like the idea of rating decay so there has to be another thing they think could and will work ... Any thoughts?


On a side note i like the fact that they are working on sth like rating decay. There could finaly be more activity in the laders with such a system and make pushing for gladiator/r1 less painfull in the last month of a season.

They can fix that by making the max team you can meet over 2.4k+ is within 200 - 300 ~ mmr so you only que into proper teams

Rating decay won't fix much, people just won't queue at all till last 1/2/3 weeks of season and just gear via 2's then spam queue and sit rating.

That would most likely occur anyway, one can always hope something could go well for arena this expansion.

Rating decay will propably not help with activity(a better state of the game itself could go a long way though...) but the least it will do is prevent camping high ratings for a long time.

Why would people spam 2s?  if rating decay gets implemented or something familiar w/e GC is working on, its a better motivation for most people doing arena to keep playing knowing that getting r1 is not impossible.  Take last season for example Hydras RMP sit on R1 for 9 months everyone know its impossible to reach that rank or reach gladiator even because everyone is camping it. I dont think arena will "explode" but it will for sure make it more fun to play.

One of the biggest problems now is that every patch there will be OP comps or classes if some KFC got 2.9k now and camped that until season end just because they had a OP moment but got nerfed a week later after they got that rating they would never play again until next season.

Love how hard this community is actually trying to find ways to NOT play.

Great change (hopefully). Now if they would only reset MMR and ladders (hopefully after fixing BM, Warriors, Spriests and Frost Mages).

Bonus pool like in sc2 seems like a cool solution, don't know if there's any downsides to it - other than it being harder to "rush" r1 on another bg at the end of a season because of limited bonus pool.

Sounds more like they'll make your team inactive if you don't play after a period of time and if you're team is inactive you wont be able to buy / get any rewards. Since they stated earlier they don't like the idea of someone going on vacation and you losing PR / TR.

Won't work, people play first week or two get high rated, sit rest of season get a huge bonus pool spend it last week, even with a not so great win loss they will increase in rating for sure.

There's a cap on the bonus pool afaik. so you can't just accumulate a gigantic cap.
and the people with the better winrate will obv get more points than people with not so good winrate, but overall rating will obviously also increase a lot, just like it does on the sc2 ladder.

there is no cap on the sc2 ladder, the cap is just the amount of time available which is why there would be a problem.
