EDIT TO BELOW COMMENT AFTER PLAYING ANOTHER GAME: Just a follow up, I gained a crap ton of SR in the following game. I was under the impression it was more like 25 up, 25 down give or take a few. I didn’t think it had 100 SR plus swings.
Thanks for that info.
I did my placement with five games for DPS the other day. Lost all of them and likely do to my team suffering leavers in every game up to 3 leavers in one. Gave me a high silver. Never played COMP until this year so I have stuff to learn.
Today I played one game and we won. It was a grind but we won.
The second game I lost 100 SR and had decent medals, gold, silver and a bronze. Probably doesn’t mean a whole lot but it tells me, at least compared to my team, I put some work in. Our whole team just got completely rolled that game though.
So basically I have a total of 7 games played and they dropped me 100 and change SR in one game, just seems extreme considering the placements games all were uneven team but the still put me in silver. One game it was 3 vs 6.
Just seemed extreme to me for a single game. Just reinforces that idea that it isn’t really individual skill, it should be renamed carry skill meaning you have to be good enough to carry five players or you get demoted.
