Hey Guys!

I don't want to turn this thread in any sort of complaining or moaning party.
Rather I'd like to collect some results you got after you did your placement matches considering your last seasons performance.

Should look somthing alike to this:

S3 Highest SR: xxxx
S3 Ending SR: xxxx
S4 Placements W/L: x/x
S4 Current Rank: xxxx

Thanks!
S3 Highest SR: 3114
S3 Ending SR: 2484
S4 Placements W/L: 7/3
S4 Current Rank: 2399

Hope this helps!
S3 Highest SR: 2893
S3 Ending SR: 2824
S4 Placements W/L: 9/1 (WWWWWWWLWW)
S4 Current Rank: 2894
S3 Highest SR: 2539
S3 Ending SR: 2474
S4 Placements W/L: 9-1-0 (Last match was a loss)
S4 Current Rank: 2612
*Played all matches with a 6-stack
Highly Rated
Obviously there is a pattern here...placements are essentially placing you where you were at last season. If that's the case, why bother having placements at all?
Ah maybe you could ad Win- or Lossingstreaks too in case you remember.

For example:

S3 Highest SR: xxxx
S3 Ending SR: xxxx
S4 Placements W/L: x/x [WWWWLWWLLW]
S4 Current Rank: xxxx

Thanks for the posts so far!

You are leaving out the ratings of the teams in each match, which is very important if you want to estimate your adjustments in placement.

And since Blizzard won't show you that info, there is not going to be much that makes sense.

A lot of players can't understand why it's possible you may not face players at your skill level during placement. It happens all season long... but during placement, it seems like everyone thinks it should all of a sudden be completely fair and we all get outraged when we don't place in diamond.

Which is exactly what happens any other time you play ten matches in a row.
S3 Placement - 2700
S3 High - 4400
S3 Ending - 4300
6 W - 4 L
S4 Placement - 4100

For once, I had fun playing my placement matches, surprisingly.
S3 Highest: 3060
S3 Ending: 3060
S4: 7/3(wwLwwLLwww)
S4: 2950

I'm curious to see what higher placed/lower placed people will post. I'm only 4 games into my placements, but my guess is that it's going to be like season 3 where the higher you are, the less you need to win to keep your rank (If you remember seeing those placements of GM where they went 2-7-1 and stayed 4400). Those in the middle of the pack are going to see the least amount of effect to their rank because of rank distribution.
ME 8W - 2L = 2700
Friend 2W - 8L = 3100

Another Blizzard Korean slot machine fest.
