But at this point it should be clear that they won’t. You’ve been asking for years now; sometimes no response is your answer. Sometimes they’ve already answered and aren’t going to repeat themselves - as is the case here. They’re not giving you anything more, so just work on improving yourself and you’ll climb. I have faith in you!

Yes, they have. I’m not going to do the research for you; it’s all there in the link.

no it’s not, I already read the whole thing long before this conversation started

they make no mention as to why they don’t divulge the MMR formula

Yes, they do. Try reading it again.

that’s not how citations work

That’s not how research works. They have indeed explained why the MMR isn’t visible and why they won’t provide more detail on it.

no they haven’t, please provide a citatioin

/shrug well when they continue to ignore your spam, you’ll know why - they’ve already answered. Learn to research and you’ll find the answers you seek. Improve yourself and you’ll win more, you don’t need anything else.

that’s fine, but don’t say they exist and not be willing to back up your claim

Who actually cares?
Playing video-games is about salt, git gud, you deserve the rank, you have to carry to climb, you are hard-stuck for a reason, you do not have game sense…yadda yadda
