Hello!

I just found out today that rating inflation which Blizzard were adding to arena to prevent people from camping their teams is live since patch 5.2. I don't know if I am just being slow here and the rest of you knew of this or if it's just as big of a surprise to the rest of you.

Holinka confirms on Twitter that this is live

Have anyone noticed the inflation or know how it works?

i want to see 3k teams again... saying you're 2.4 (and that being pretty high) is lame

What's an alt conquest cap?

Ofcause you can't see the rating inflation, you think it means that first week you go from 1500 to 2700 second week? That would be fucking retarded. Seasons is nowhere near ending, and will end after 5.3

i think its obvious they are planing an inflation but i dont know how they are gonna do it.
i mean the new pvp tabards that will come in 5.3 have 2.5k req, do blizzard want like 100 ppl to have it in eu or what, they are obviously planing an inflation

i think the "rating boost" they talked about will be a broken system, just stay in the same team and you will probably get retarded amounts of points at 5.3
swe ofc ^^

I really want that tabard that they are adding but unless they inflate the ratings by alot I don't see myself getting since I am playing very casually right now with just friends and guildmates. Maybe 2.5k is the new 2k though? Guess there's nothing to do but to wait and see.

the way they described it, if you play every week, your mmr will gradually increase more/lose less.  the keyword here being gradual, and very gradual until it ramps up more and more as the season goes on.

I also heard of this rating boost but I assumed that was the same thing as the inflation, are you saying that after 5.3 they will ALSO implement rating boost?

Im pretty sure then ratingboost already is live with 5.2 but someone correct me if im wrong, so they are trying to inflate but i could be wrong.. Just that its almost inpossible for 99% of the players to get 2.2 in 2s > no arena master, plus considering the new tabard (2.5 req) they must be planning something

Its also weird how they gave so little information on how the boost system works
swe ofc ^^

they said (i cbb to look for quote but it was like this) "We don't want to give players too much information so they don't find loopholes or ways to exploit the system".

I think you can gain rating by winning arena games

Still, not revealing how the system works only benefits people that find out one way or the other.

They should make it obvious whether things like team remake, team hopping and member swapping affect it.

Anyone who knows what inflation means, knows how the system works. Knowing how the rating inflation system works doesn't give you an advantage.

It is obvious that none of those 3 affect it.

Well considering the whole idea of rating* inflation was to encourage people staying in the same team all season, i'd be surprised if team hopping and swapping DIDN'T affect it.

Got no idea what you mean with "team inflation", but the point of rating inflation is to stop people from playing to rank 1 on first week of season and camping there for 4 months.

Please tell us why rating inflation (compared to no rating inflation) would encourage people to stay in the same team all season?
