Something I’m curious about with the new ranking system, does it understand when people leave?
So, last night I had a game where, whilst we were winning against the enemy team, one of our DPS left/disconnected/their takeaway arrived. After that happened the tank wrote in chat “let’s just leave” and to the horror of me (Moira) and Mercy they all did, leaving just the two of us in the match which, of course, we lost because two healers isn’t enough (despite a stern effort lol)
This is just a general question, but do we know if the system understands that loss as being due to leavers? What do I mean by “understands that loss”? When it comes to your 7 wins and you’re reviewed, will the system recognise that there was a match were everyone/some people left and deliever a lesser penalty against your rank?
You could easily just take the loss and move on but in those situations where there was an entire round left to play, your going to die, you’ll not really produce any stats it can calculate against because the match is effectively compromised.
It’s a question that’s coming from a place of frustration, but that match was the first time I’ve seen an entire team leave for, seemingly no reason save one dps getting disconnected. What made this worse was that we were winning, there was no toxicity, everyone was on form…go figure.
