    Dropping MMR before 5.4 for better win loss ratio`?

    Hey,

    I have just started playing again and with the changes to arena with 5.4, as I need to practice abit and my mmr is still high from S12 and I assume mmr is not been reset (Cant see anything about it?) is anyone considering dropping like 50 wins to get a easy set off wins when the patch hits to improve your ratio?

    Im not a perfectionist, but I want to play alot of games next season, so having a boost to my ratio would ease my OCD slightly and since I need to find new partners, i dont want to start off by having a shit ratio and people not wanting to play with me because of it, because of a few baddies.

    What is the point of dropping MMR if your goal is to practise? If anything you will get better practise from playing at higher MMRs?

    So i dont get frustrated looking at my win - loss ratio if its shit, then as above people not wanting to play with me if my win loss is bad.

    tomorrow no one will ever be able to know how many games you've lost again.

    I think your biggest problem is the people you play with then

    Didn't holinka say they removed the ability to see losses, only wins in arena?

    If so, thats great, dont need to worry about it then. ö

    Its hard finding people to play with after not playing for a while, therefore I want any advantage I can get to get decent partners.

    This is true. The PVP-tab will look like this;

    Looks good. Any idea if the best is shown is retroactive or from 5.4?

    I would be surprised if it showed anything at all from prior season. Cant see any reason why it should.

    Expecting 5.4 (season 14) only

    i wouldnt be surprised if "best" was just the "highest X man personal/team rating" from the statistics tab in the achievement window
    edit: most likely personal rating

    You might mean something different but you still need a group to queue. Your mmr will be based on your average group pr.

    I do worry this will contribute to some sketchy mmr bombing schemes.
