#4088668 The Current MMR/Personal Rating +0 thing explained.

Posted Bigmoran on 29 March 2014 - 04:32 AM

The change is intentional, I made a post as to why this is a terrible idea. Please offer your feedback (and your rep).

PLEASE BUMP: http://us.battle.net...pic/12329612883

As many people have pointed out on this forum, there is currently a change to MMR and CR that causes some players to not gain rating on wins in PvP. This change has effected every bracket of arena aswell as RBGs.

A blue post on the matter explained:

"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."

From my understanding, the hotfix was implemented to help remedy some of the MMR problems at the beginning of the season, where players were not losing MMR and their ratings were getting considerably high in a short period of time. The change, from what I gather, prevents you from gaining personal rating until your MMR catches up to that rating.

So, say you are 2500 CR in 3v3 and you win a game at 2400 MMR, you will not gain any points.

If you are 2500 CR in 3v3 and lose a game at 2400 MMR, you will lose points.

The problem with this change is that it has completely ruined incentive for higher rated players to queue arena/RBGS. It is highly unlikely that the players at the top of the ladder queue at an MMR that is higher than their personal rating. Therefore, they have NO reason to queue outside of their willingness to compete. In fact, they will be penalized for queuing as if they lose (which is inevitable) they will go down in rating that they will be unable to get back for a considerable amount of time.

This creates not only a mathematical dilemma for these players, but also a psychological problem as it is very hard to continue queing in an environment in which you don't see positive gains.

The MMR problem is considerably more complicated in RBGs, as the highest RBG team that ques on a consistent basis is below 2200 MMR. Most players, especially on the higher end of the bracket, have personal ratings that DRAMATICALLY exceed their teams MMR. I have experience playing against Abn's team. He is ~2500 CR and most of his teammates are at around 2200-2400 CR. Thier team mmr, despite their players individual high ratings, is never above 2.2k. Teams like ABN have very little incentive to que as if they do actually play the game, they will lose 200-300 rating before they are able to go back up again.

What would have been a better change?

Instead of penalizing the high end of the ladder for queuing (mind you PVP is top down - in that inactivity at the top creates rating deflation for everything below it) penalize not queuing. MMR should have been INFLATED for those teams that queue. Create a system (much like the one we saw in S13) where there is incentive to queue regularly throughout the season. People LIKE to see high ratings. It will be impossible (at least for the time being) for some players to reach 2.2k in RBGS, and probably 2500 in arena.

I'd be lying if I didn't say I at least somewhat cared about what people think about something I've worked on for this long on and off, but I guess its AJ at the end of the day. So in my defense...

Yeah Im not the best editor but all of Reckful's movies had terrible editing, yet they are the most viewed and respected videos for the most part. He also used long games and only had a few games per clip.

I guess its just a popularity contest more than anything.

As far as my UI goes, like I said in the description its what Ive been used to for a while and Im too lazy to change it atm, I don't really think its cluttered as I can clearly see everything that is going on and I don't have that many add ons but sorry if its annoying.

FYI: The intro was almost a carbon copy of Tosan 7, which i used as reference, not sure why its so strange to people.

Have such soft, effeminate voices.  With the exception of maybe Bajheera, who is obviously a beast in great shape.  

I personally think he's a great warrior, but doesn't get these high rated effeminate teammates because he's too intimidating for them.

Listening to Snaregod after a loss it sounds like he's going to claw someones eyes out.  God forbid you play with that kid and you're not a well known player :eek:

Reminds me how Serennia used to sound after a loss; I think their voices are very similar.

Jahmilli sounds relatively heterosexual but I never seem him rocking the webcam.  I guess it's scary having all these trolls watching you?

Veev doesn't need to have a webcam because he's Veev, he's the man. :D

nothing against the OP or minpojke himself or anything, but it's funny how he "gets away with it" just cause he's minpojke. someone who behaves like a dick is a dick no matter what, regardless of the 1200 challenger or the 2700 blizzcon competitor.
not like he even had to offer his kidney or anything, just a small shoutout for a bunch of guys that boosted him for free. so ye, /slap

WoW is a game. Play it to have fun. If you think ANYTHING you do in this game will matter in the long run besides the memories you create, you are wrong.

It's funny, I'm more fond of my season 1 gladiator title than anything else in this game because of the nostalgia associated with obtaining it.

If all you're doing is creating bad memories and having a miserable time when you log in because someone else is having fun (ie they have a gladiator title), time to find a new game.
