Losing rank because of leavers is just unfair

Competitive Discussion
I mean, really? Genjimaster824 left so now I have to suffer a loss? How is that even fair. Granted this is my QQ post but I cant be the only one who feels this way. I went 4/6 on my placement matches because of leavers, ive played 3 matches after, 1 with a leaver. I don't even want to play now because it just seems inevitable that I will be stuck at 48.
You aren't. There are many others. Just don't play ranked for the time being.

Cool, the fact that people still get a loss is just stupid. Collapse the match. Its not fair for goober hanzo to rank up when good players just have to accept their rank going down (not saying I am a good player)

I disagree with him. It wouldn't be worse, it would be better.

Until they change this I am not gonna waste my time with this sorry excuse of competitive play.

So basically your saying the alternative that exploits the system is better. That will pretty much mean unless your gonna exploit the system, you will never reach high ranks.

Basically the alternative is a player leave a losing game for the group, group leaves after 60s during safe time. Group just saved their rating. Next time game goes badly, get different person to leave game, rest follow 60s and save their rating again.
Can you not see how this would be exploited to hell.
Congrats bud, you disagree with a guy who has a !@#$ ton more experience than you working for a gaming giant. But please, tell us your humble opinion!
Just make the penalty for leaving games more strict. Make the penalty for trolling more strict. They're fixing the DC reconnect issue soon. I think it all stems from leavers and trollers. Either way people will complain about the system, so just make it so leavers/trolls are strictly punished. And if it's your internet thats the issue well...you still ruin games for 11 other people (5 on your team gets full loss and 6 other team gets nothing for winning) Should probably get that looked at before playing comp.
Personally I wish for ranked for this first season they wouldn't let you lose ranks. Once they iron out a lot of these issues, then maybe switch it back to losing rank, but it is very frustrating losing ranks because of how I am getting matched, people leaving, etc.

I see what youre saying, but when im playing solo how am I going to coordinate something like that? I understand that would be a very big thing with groups, but no while playing solo
