The team rankings are fixed, and it is now much harder to boost now. However, boosters are still among the top positions of the team ladder. Should we reset the team rankings, so everyone has the same level playing field? Please share your votes!

First to vote!

Doing a team rank reset to 1200 would mean 300 more points for me!

@Geert maybe you should make clear what "team rank reset" exactly means

  • Reset to

    • 1200 (best option imo)
    • 700+first ten matches boosted rank
    • 700 (without any boost)

I am Dirol with every kind of reset, I am just curious which kind of reset it will be and I think many others too 

btw: great idea to add a poll ;>

I voted for "I don't know / I don't care / llama's" for 2 reasons:

  • I really don't care, rank is just a number lol. If you play for fun, it doesn't matter if you have 1500 or 3000, you just want to be in the room with your m8s and h8ers.
  • Llama's are cute :$ But I like Jeff more, next time make a new Jeff option! <3

It will be a total reset, i.e. 700 and everyone gets the 10 match boost.

If that's the case, Tranquility then surely there is no point to this at all - future 2nd accounters can do exactly the same thing as before and boost.

OMG!!! It's Over 9000!!! (ms lag)

The problem wasn't boosting using 2nd accounts. The team rankings were offset from a wrong calculation in the system. That's why we seen people approaching 3k rank. This is why the reset will occur - to get the balance back and start from scratch.

The cheater mods will still have to work as normal Smile

dont reset my team rank Lol I had a lot of hard games to get it and i am gonna get higher....

I wanted to say no, but come to think about it, I don't see any reason why not.

One's rank is supposed to mirror the skill level/experience a player has in order to have gotten that rank. That means that players who still have their rank that they got unfair will defeat the whole purpose of, even the ranking system because their rank doesn't match the skill set. 

Not to mention, resetting the ranks will boost the competitive scene for a while as players will be working hard to rise to the top as soon as possible. This would be fun to take part in and the first page (top 50) would be more balanced with the new system/algorithm.

I understand the players who don't want to lose the rank they worked hard for, but if you can't get the rank back yourself, it means that the rank is probably too high for you anyway.

I think u should reset and if there are players who got high rank they probably can get it again if they are skilled enough I-m so happy

I think that the most fair and the best solution for this is to make lower ranks only for players from the top positions. For example If someone have more than 2000 Team rank, make him 2000 and all other players who have more than 2000. Or maybe other number like 1900 or 1800.

Ok guys, there seems to be a big majority of 65% who wants to reset the rank.

I have thought about how to do it, and I udnerstand that some people want to reset to 1200, if you are not new anymore.

However, this would put them on a disadvantage against new players who have bonus, as they can achive a higher rank much, much faster. So when we do a rank reset, it has to go all the way to 700 + bonus time.

When shall we do it?

I think as soon as possible.There is not a reason to wait if all the rank we get or lose is going away and back to 700.

We are going to try to do a mini-event before the ranks are reset to mark the start of the new ladder era! We would like to invite the top 2 players in the team ranks to have a face-off for a special in-game title.

theRealMadridcf and oldghz are clear at the top right now, so if they would like to organise a 4v4 team match with partners of their choosing then we can continue with that. We will leave it up to the players to decide the power-up setting. 

Good luck guys!

With the 700+ extra rank system, losing games can be quite painful for the first matches you play. So people will still be able to 'boost' at the start by ensuring they don't lose  their first matches by going against 'easy' opponents, or even by rigging their matches. Will this not be a problem?

If they go against easy opponents then fine. The ranks will balance out after some weeks anyway. As for rigging matches (I assume you mean adding inactive accounts?) - we will catch this just like before. So unless everyone stops reporting cheaters or all the mods are fired (lolz :D) then no, this won't be a big problem Blum 3

Currently in Europe team ranking we have 84 players with ranks higher than 1800. Mainly these players benefited on the previous rank system. If we make them 1800 it will be fair. Because it's almost impossible or even impossible to get that rank in first 10 matches. In previous rank system it was similar to get 1800+ It can also help avoid many problems such as described by Master Shuriken in his post or strong reduction global average team ranks.

Are you planning to reset the number of games played too? Would be a pity to lose the number we've been earning for such long time.

Why do you do a team reset and not ffa and 1vs1? I don't get it. Is the team rank less meaningful?

The team rank was the only one with a flaw in the calculation.

For me it's nonsens. Why should we do a reset if a lot of players playing normal? Many players has a lot of games (5000 or more) and maybe they don't want to lost it. You can just ban boosters, not do a reset. And maybe some players do care about their ranks, for example those who has 1700 or more. I think we shouldn't do a reset.
