I don't understand how you acculate points, it some have played a fewer games however they more points than me.


That's cuz their win/loss ratio is better but now it will be really hard to tell that so it will make rating feel more important and that less important unless you're masters+.

Seasons are unbearably long. I think new seasons should completely wipe your record every 3 months. Lets face it, after reaching master league most people feel established enough to not have to mass game to prove their skills. New seasons faster, will get more players playing, i am almost 100 percent sure on that. Give letter grades instead of icons (keep the icons though they are sick, but just assign and letter grade ex. A-, C+, etc.) Since MMR is the key in match making it should be clear the level the player is playing at. Just my opinion though, i'm sure some people think its too long.

Blizzard Admin,

I'm unable to view any league & ladders page in-game battle.net.
It appears blank as if I've never participated in Season 1. Profile page works fine though.

I don't know why I'm the only one affected by this. Could it be an unforeseen consequence of playing 1v1 ATs, and 3v3 RT only?

yea it does. me and 2 freinds tested out the theory in 3s. We purposely lost 5 placements to get into bronze (thinking the system might cap the competition at silver/gold) 12 wins in we were facing diamonds+ even though we were still in bronze.

What happens for new teams who play placement matches?


You'll be placed, but initial placements are generally conservative, so even if you rock your matches don't expect to go above platinum. And of course you'll be stuck there until the new season and a new placement.

It's worth it though. Why not grab a sweet icon?

Not sure if it's working properly, me and a friend did 5 placement matches for 2v2, we win 4 and lose 1 yet we were put in bronze (with a bunch of teams, most of the division were new teams aswell) and i'm unsure if that was un-intentional.

What is so cool about icons? Some of my friends won't switch from SC:BW to SC2 because of the achievement crap, they think the game is designed for kids who need a gold star for everything they do. Now there are more reasons they won't switch to SC2.

Will the new season finally fix the "trading" bug in 1 vs 1?, I thought patch 1.3 would have fixed that. I'm still stuck and since everyone else is a trader the best win/loss ratio i can get is 50%. Is the mmr score an overall score or is it separate for 1 vs 1 . 2 vs 2 etc...

I lawl'd, though we didn't quite check if they were actually 3's AT diamond or if they were just random. Either way match-making is still the same, hope to see diamond after the placement next week
