    What the hell did they do to mess it up this bad? O.O

    There's still Starcraft II - or possibly even older - code hidden somewhere under the hood and the last person able to decipher it spends his day happily staring into the sunset in some assisted living community in SoCal...

    Seriously, they seem overambitious, unwilling to leave alone parts that aren't broken. They need to finetune more and rework, relaunch less and stop reinventing the wheel.

    I'm glad I've kept clear, there's a bunch of clearly broken placements again; something is still wrong.

    I just hope that with the holidays coming up we're not left in the dark like previous years.

    At the very least we now know for certain that performance-based matchmaking was not the cause.

    Yup, reading reddit that's my impression as well. I don't play ranked in the first 15, 20 days of a new season, so basically I can watch this trainwreck mildly amused from the outside and just whine a bit, that my eight game win streak and almost 70% WR in unranked are - well - just in unranked.

    But no matter what the state of things may be, they will be super reluctant to nix the season for a third time, that wouldn't look exactly competent.

    ‘I am NOTHING’: this parody of affirmation is the last word of sovereign subjectivity, freed from the dominion it wanted, or needed, to give itself over things…for I know that I am fundamentally this subjective and contentless existence.

    That's because people go "lul no dps or tank" and underestimate the insane damage a 5dps comp can dish out.

    Bet so many people are pissed because of the multiple resets, especially if they did well. Suprised they didn't give any free shit out because of this.

    Ranked has been enabled again. No idea if it's truly fixed this time. Either way, GG Blizzard for working weekends to fix this!

    Yeah I can't give them GGs for this situation whatsoever. I understand that bugs happen (oh trust me I do), but I've felt they handle the situation very badly.

    So is the conclusion to give out free Master ranks this season to make up for shitty set off? I ended last season in d3 and after today's ranked I apparently jumped to Master 1000? I mean, I don't mind, but literally everyone I played with during placement was Master ranked too so I kinda feel like they just decided to make "everyone happy" and just give out free master ranks this season...

    Anyone else feels the same?

    This is not issue... THIS IS MATERIAL FOR MEMES!
    Whatever...

    It is still broken, so after next round of placement stomps I get placed into Platinum 2 when I reached Diamond 3 in last season. Works just fine, dropping down whole league.

    Fuck this really. It is not like I could influence any of the games I had. It was stomp after stomp, not a single close game.

    Did you go 0-10? Because if so, that seems fairly accurate. Past seasons you could drop about a full league if you lost every game. Hell, I'd break even at 5-5 and usually lose a division or two. The issue was Silvers getting into Masters, or Masters dropping into Gold.

    IF you had unbalanced games where MMR was significantly fucked up and led to losses, that's a different story, but maybe you just got really unlucky?

    I went 5-5, had incredibly unbalanced games. It was stomp after stomp, both when winning and losing. Had even a game with Chen one trick who left immediately after and reconnected just to avoid leaver status.

    There is no way I am losing a whole Tier over that.

    Yeah, I agree. Should more or less break even at that point. Early games count for more though, so if you lost the first few that makes a big difference. I wish the 10 games were all equal in weight to each other. You can easily lose like 30 games of progress in 3 games, and that is broken as fuck.

    Well, I don't know anymore. Everything feels like a coin toss, no matter what I play. I am definitely not enjoying the game at all right now thanks to terrible experience. I don't care that much about ranks as long as I get decent games that are not stomps.

    The only constant I have in my games is I win pretty much every Dragon Shire game.

    Yeah I dropped 3 divisions after going 5-5 as well. I actually dropped 3 divisions from my very first loss so it was either a seeding bug or the first placements games being ridiculously significant. Much like you most games were stomps, or at the very least full clown fiesta starting from the draft.

    I had for instance a BoE where we went Diablo - Lucio - Valla - Chromie - Tracer and none of the 3 dpsers wanted to sololane so we essentially deathballed from lvl 1 and ended up winning.
