YOU MUST RESET THE LADDER AND MMR!

Arenas
Below are some links of ridiculous Battle Groups that have been corrupted by the MMR abusers.

There are plenty more people who used this exploit just to hit 2200 as well.

This isn't a "conspiracy theory" or whatever you would like to call it. This is a very real problem that needs to be fixed right now.

Here is why banning the mmr exploiters wont solve the problem. The exploiters have absurdly high MMR and they have lost many games to teams that were not exploiting(thereby giving free MMR to many other teams, but losing none themselves, so this massively inflates rating.) The problem with mass inflation is that even if you ban all the teams who were exploiting, the teams that were fortunate enough to get "free" rating wont be banned and they never have to que another game for the rest of the season because their rating is now unobtainable.

Here is an example of a team on Bloodlust that was queing and ran into a team of exploiters that left before the gates even opened. Free points for one team but it doesnt matter because the other team doesnt lose rating, so it is endless. The exploiting team's rating is only limited by their capacity to que. THEY CAN NEVER LOSE RATING.

With how wide spread this exploit has become, it is also impossible to ban every single exploiter. So where do you stop the banning? Only rank 1 teams? Only teams above 2400? 2200? Since it is so wide spread, the only way to fix the problem is to reset the ladders.

This is almost the EXACT same situation in S9 where you couldnt lose MMR if you left a game before you lost. And people had 50/50 win loss ratios and were almost 4k rated.

Reset the ladders or this season and next season will be a total wash. If you guys dont reset MMR and team rating, the people who have very high MMR this season will carry over into next and we still have the exact same problem.

Butterfly effect WoW edition.
If you have any interest in competitive pvp ever returning this expansion. You need to read this or understand what is going on and petition for a ladder reset.
i agree i watch several teams last night on stream gain 3k rating farming the wintraders. the season will be a bust if blizz does not take action.
How about we just get rid of MMR in general? What was wrong with the BC way of things?
$10 says Blizz finds some !@#$ty excuse not to reset.

The old system had no limitations on how low rated you are versus a high rated team. In essence the bad players would get farmed and cry to Blizzard that their class is the problem.

Funny part is I loved getting crushed by better players. Showed me how to play. Wish more people could look at their losses with constructive self-criticism.
Because all the BM hunters and warriors "earned" there rating.

It is indeed a great way to learn when you face players that are far better than you. MMR has created almost a caste system which has driven away scores of players from arenas.

I'd vote to bring back the BC system for a season and see where it goes. Anything ought to be an improvement to the current situation.
you are listing people who are EU they are not on US ladders so stop complaining about it on a US forum go to EU and complain
BUMP for sticky.
mmr and ladder really have to be reset.
