Hello, I was wondering if anyone could (try to) explain me something with SR gains/losses in competitive.
So back then when I was in gold, I was usually getting more SR for victories than losing for defeats. This way I could climb, slowly but steadily, with the same amount of wins and losses. When I reached platinum, the SR gains/losses more or less equalised, and I got used to the fact that I just have to win more games in order to go higher. I usually gain/lose 22-26 SR.
Then today, at 2850 SR, I got disconnected from a game. Reconnected after less than 2 minutes, but still lost 50 SR, and even though we ultimately won, I didn’t get anything for that. It’s understandable with how the system works.
Later, when my connection got more stable, I went back to competitive, and for the first game I gained 33 SR, which hasn’t happened since more or less season 9 or 10. I wouldn’t be very surprised if my game was on an extraordinary level, but it wasn’t - I think I was decent enough for our team to win, not without effort (I’m playing supports mostly). Then I lost 21 SR for a defeat, and then got another 30 SR for the next win, also on my usual level of play.
After a couple of games, the situation remains, and regardless of how the game went, I’m gaining a lot more SR. With five wins and four losses I gained 64 SR. It’s like getting as much in one game.
Why did, all of a sudden, SR system started rewarding me more generously?
Was it because of this disconnect issue, and it’s some sort of a… compensation now? Is it a bug that just happens to be here? Does the game now thinks I should be higher in rank (which would be weird, since I’m not even sure about that)? Early Christmas magic?
