From Blue Post:
“No, this job will not affect any of the results in previous weeks.”
No one cares about honor fix, fix rankings.
I hear some people saying you can’t fix rankings cause it’s already been done. Wrong.
If they have the records when the kills are made, you can recalculate everything and give correct rankings for next week. (Plug in the right numbers, simulate rank calculation process from week 1).
I have no clue why people think rankings are set in stone because it’s been calculated already, just do it again. Not just for next week, from the beginning.
Looking at my honor tab right now, it looks like they just inflated my this week’s kill total to account for previous missed kills. This is just going to mess up calculation for this week. Who knows how many kills people missed each week.
For example, imagine player 1 and player 2 on server X, with same honor/kill.
Week1: Player 1 kills 10 (actually recorded 1), Player 2 Kills 3 (actually recorded 2)
Week2: Player 1 kills 10 (actually recorded 1), Player 2 Kills 3 (actually recorded 2)
Week3: Player 1 kills 10 (actually recorded 1), Player 2 Kills 3 (actually recorded 2)
Week4: Honor Fix, Player 1 gets 27 Kill Credit, Player 2 gets 3 Kill Credit.
Player 1 only gets higher rank points on week 4 compared to Player 2. While player 1 should’ve gotten higher rank TOTAL. Player 2 is still ahead in rankings with this fix, which is wrong.
What they need to do is just look back and redo the Ranking Credit Process for each week, so Player 1 gets the correct ranking which should be higher than Player 2.
Will some people lose rankings if they recalculate from beginning? Some people might see a decrease in their ranks in Honor Tab. But it’s not “actually” a decrease, it’s just showing them a rank they don’t deserve right now cause honor records are screwed up. It all depends on how messed up the calculation is.
If blizzard doesn’t fix rankings, it’s because they don’t want some people to get mad when they see that they “lost” ranks. But what about people who didn’t get any ranks for what they worked for? Does it not matter because we are already mad? Stop giving us BS fix like “Honor” fix. It’s not an actual fix, you are trying to cover it up by inflating this weeks kill count.
FIX RANKING. DO BETTER MATH.
