Anyone think something should be implemented? Maybe giving it to the team with the better overall win / loss or something, there has to be a better idea. Nobody wants to see a tie, it ruins competition. Would you like to see a tie in the super bowl, or the world series? ( /omg this nerd is comparing WoW to sports ).

Not that i'm anywhere near the running for rank 1 on a bg, but a tie is pretty lame and i'm sure its something everyone can agree on.

W/L is easy enough. Ties will still be possible, but extremely unlikely. Should have been implemented awhile ago.

Doesn't matter. Nearly every rank 1 is done by wintrading anyways.

Imo the team who obtain the rating first whould be the rank 1. And for any other team to take the rank 1, they whould have to pass the current R1 holders.

This way the highest teams might acculy keep on queueing untill the season ends, and not make sure they have the same rating, weeks in advance, in order to avoid competition/the risk of loosing it.

Differential treatment in form of W/L would just be plain stupid.

And no, not nearly every r1 is obtained unfairly, but many titles are. That statement would however be pretty accurate if we were talking about s8.

Seriously though, how much fun can this community be without its regular end season drama?

Three econometricians went out hunting, and came across a large deer. The first econometrician fired, but missed, by a meter to the left. The second econometrician fired, but also missed, by a meter to the right. The third econometrician didn't fire, but shouted in triumph, "We got it! We got it!"

Let the first one on the rating have it. Refraining from my usual rant on boosters and wintraders this time, you know the text...

You think ties on virtually every single BGs are a coincidence? :|

I believe this is talking about the R1 3s on BG9 and Cdew streaming last night with the title "agreed to tie R1 3s" but why get all upset about this anyone remember S8 tieclone? Or even the 2 5s team from emberstorm last season? I mean we have seen worse then just this tie in 3s so.

Hasn't Blizzard been super inconsistent about ties?  Unless it's like 6 teams tying or something absurd like that.  Isn't it basically luck of the draw of which GM deals with it?

cuddlesome in a nutshell:

1- never been above 2300

2-randomly asks pigboy and flappie (good mage and druid) to play some games

3-goes on a winning streak vs retarded 2400 kfcs/tsg

4-gets 2450

5-sits for rest of season.



idk anything lamer than that, ur a fucking shitter and u should stop posting on aj acting like ur something. u might get ur glad title cuz ur too big of a pussy to que ladder and wargame all day instead, but next season when people with 6 brain cells play with u they will realize how awful u are and kick you.
gobbypls
S - succcess
W - winner
A - alliance4ever
G - gg gd luck next time
