Bans being issued for SS leavers

Personal Rating is the rating you see on the PvP tab, MMR is your “hidden rating” you can see it in the scoreboard inside an arena at the bottom-right.
You are matched depending on your MMR and the personal rating you gain or lose is based on the differential between your personal and MMR.

MMR fluctuates a lot faster than Personal rating and makes it easier to match you with people of your skill earlier to avoid gladiators dominating low rated queues for too long while simultaneously slowing down the personal rating climb to ensure it takes a minimal amount of time to actively reach the personal rating you should be at.

It’s not a perfect system but it’s a system, literally.

Yeah, that’s a nice and reasonably concise way of explaining it. For the most part people shouldn’t have to really think about it too much aside from trying to play with similarly rated partners.

how could blizzard really know how scummy people would be? ban them.


Because they hire engineers who are supposed to have the mental acuity to understand human psyche.

Thank you for that. They need to just tank both.

It would be a good solution to deal with people abusing the system, but it wouldn’t fix the issue of everyone else being punished if a leaver does happen.
Some might even abuse it to just tank their CR and MMR to play at lower rating to dominate and get conquest/great vault cap faster, ruining it for lower rated solo shuffle.

It’s not an easy problem to fix, but it should definitely have been figured out a while ago when it was reported in beta.

so now you’re a psychologist? and people at blizzard are supposed to be psychologists? get a grip.


You don’t have to be a psychologist to know people are scumbags.

thats like your opinion man.

ban the ones who leave and are abusing the system and that’ll scare people from doing it.

5 leaves in a reset resulting in a 7 day deserter debuff. Problem solved.

That’s the equivalent of using a shotgun in a crowded theater to kill a criminal.

do they just let anyone join the community council because your analogies are really bad.


It’s…important to attempt to anticipate people looking to minmax/game stuff. In the case of shuffle you can literally just pop out if you’re losing too much and it preserves your rating.

You not understanding the basic of game development and why solving problems with the biggest gun you have isn’t the smartest thing to do isn’t my problem.

bro leavers know what they are doing. they know it pisses people off and they know its not the way the solo shuffle is supposed to be.



That’s all immaterial, though.

theyre abusing the system and they know it. so ban them. which honestly is probably going to be the case anyways.



Eh. Maybe just a handful of people taking it to an extreme.

league bans their leavers and gives them a warning. give players a warning and ban them.


League is a very poor example of a game that properly punishes people.
