FIX THE LADDER ILL PAY $$


I think there are masters around selling each rank up on your account. Isn't it the same thing?
I just got home, fired up starcraft, excited to play my 'placement' match and see where I end up.

Started up a game... glhf.... pool's almost finished.... *CRASH*

I've never crashed before w/ sc2.

Nice job with the patch, guys.
I wouldn't if I were them. It would accomplish nothing.
It's a straight adjustment of league borders. Your MMR isn't being re-calculated. Your MMR remains the same. The change is in where your MMR places you.


Your MMR is intertwined with your league. There are so many Masters players I've faced that are Diamond right now. If everyone gets promoted but keeps their MMR things are still going to be messed up. People are still going to be facing people way worse or way better than them.

Unfortunately, they didn't promise to change how the messed up MMR works. Just the actual league changes. (they may have anyway, but Theskunk's pointed out they didn't say they were going to).

Which is stupid, but not totally unexpected

I'm telling you what Blizzard told us. That the adjustment was to league boundaries, not MMR. Which brings me back to my point: that Blizzard needs to communicate, and is horribad at it.

Just for clarity, rank 1 doesn't actually matter. Your winrate does,and it doesn't look much higher than 50%. Your not getting promoted probably doesn't really have much to do with how ladder is broken atm.
Holy...

guys guys. Play more games. This is DAY ONE of Patch 2.1.

You know as well as I do, that a number of you stopped laddering until 2.1. Meanwhile everyone else was leapfrogging you during your absence.

Play more games and the system will see how incredibly awesome you are, and promote you. Yes, I believe in you.
When did anyone say "Play one game to get promoted"?

This sounds like an overly-hyped misconception to me.

But if everyone stay at the same league it means the distribution wasn't fixed.

Having 42% of players in Bronze instead of 8%, 6% in plat instead of 20% and 4% in diamond instead of 18% means a lot of people should have been promoted, some even two leagues up if the patch indeed fixed the ladder.

Seeing how as no one has been promoted as of yet, people are assuming the problem wasn't fixed, and I believe they're assuming correctly.

You have one more win than loss. ONE. What makes you think you deserve to be promoted?

Ooh, I so do love when people say this. Because then I get to quote a Blizzard rep with direct evidence.



Only we've got a change to how the leagues are apportioned in patch 2.1.

After 2.1 goes live, you'll play one match and then be adjusted. Some players may not be adjusted much. Others will get to skip up the ladder.

I know we can't yet say precisely when the patch will go live. It's in a stage where we're busy with quality assurance on it, and since we never know how long that will take, we don't set firm dates for the following stages of patching.
