At the start of each PvP season, we perform a game wide adjustment to players’ matchmaking ratings to re-normalize their distribution. After this process, most players don’t notice much of a difference with their matchmaking rating, but players at the far ends of the distribution may notice a significant change.
Unfortunately, this process did not occur prior to the start of Season 3 in this region (all of the Americas and Oceanic realms). This re-normalization needs to happen as soon as possible to prevent players’ personal ratings from far exceeding their re-normalized matchmaking ratings, particularly at the high end of the ladder.
We will be performing this re-normalization this evening, and players may notice a change to their matchmaking rating when they log in tomorrow.
I spent 6 hours trying to queue arena tonight and got glad elite geared teams that are obv 2700+ exp some that ive seen in blizcon at 1200 mmr facing causals and brand new players. this isnt fun at all for anyone. Not the guys trying to get back to 2700 and its really not fun causal 1800 players. Our win loss rate is terrible because all we got was match ups like this all night.
