long story short…
The entropy of the ranking system would not fail if some people who lost the game still got +SR.
as an bonus the playerbase would not be toxic, if people had a personal rank and not “the random team you played with” rank.
(the reason people are toxic is not cus they was born evil or immature, they simply dont want to lose their rank!)
I fully belive that a ranking system that gives out -sr for losses is the root cause of all this fury and toxicity in owerwatch.
i also fully belive that a ranking system works fully even without minus points, losing games can simply add ±0 to sr without any affect to rank
