Whilst it looks a bit wacky, it is in all probability acute.
Run with me for a second…
Say you start at 3550 SR. (50% in to M5), but your MMR is actually lower.
Every win, you’ll gain less than 25, when you lose you’ll lose more than 25.
So say for every win you were getting 18sr, but every loss you drop 30sr. This would mean after a 5-5 record you’ve be at 3490 SR. Or high up in diamond 1. (Obviously rough numbers, but I hope you get the gist)
There’s a good chance the “issue” is just clarity rather than a problem (in fact it’s almost certainly the case). If it was just displayed as a number again you wouldn’t bat an eyelid at it. (The % higher than as a compromise is a terrible addition)
If that is the case, it just shows how shoddy the matchmaking has become. To drop an entire division (going by the % value of the division also) is very very odd for when I win/lose 5 games. I mays well of lost all 10 games which would of probably got me the same outcome.
I’ll wait and see if Blizzard actually review the technical post. Going by how current posts are being treated, I’ll see nothing. Hopefully other users report the same issue.
Ranked is definitely broken. The teams I’ve been matched with have been complete opposites to the teams I’ve been in. Shambolic DPS and heals on some occasions. MMR has been broken for a long time now and doesn’t seem to get any better.
I’ve tried to “See Above”, and I cannot for the life of my see where I ever said that I didn’t like it because it is not what I wanted to hear, and I can’t also see where I said, what you said was a little too inconvient for me?
