1 should be fixed when 99% are not stuck in rank 1
should not be put in servers on the other side of the world

I hate how if you roll a team first round and it's obvious they will lose, they can still leave in time so that they don't lose elo.

when you abandon, it automatically counts as a loss- abandoning does not save their elo

I swear the game won't let me rank up

And games I win dont give me elo and sometimes disappear from my history

Not to mention the net settings that make me feel like I have 100 ping, gibs, viewmodels, and zoom sensitivity ratio

Both teams having shit ping ensures level playing field.
Granted it's a field that's only level because it's basically a brown liquid at this point (mud or shit or both? YOU DECIDE!) but it is level.

The decision to have no placement matches really confuses me to be honest, it is creating a situation in which it will take a VERY long time for people to settle into appropriate rankings.

If there are thousands of people worldwide, my six stack of 6 Americans should not have to play on a Stockhom server against euros with like 20 ping

I don't have a ton of evidence, but at rank 4, I have more reason to believe that matchups are random than that they're actually attempting to match ranks.

If you want a fair rank you are forced to grind and hope that you can carry your team, I'm really not sure why they chose that instead of giving people ranks from the start

Overwatch has the opposite problem.

Everyone complains that it sucks to solo queue because anytime you get queued up with a 6 man stack its very hard to win. TF2 took the other path, ensure solo queues play mostly solo queues but that screws up people who play in parties.

Lmao I just looked and my game history literally diminished by a factor of 2

What happened to all those games

Also I heard tell that valve ranks teams based on some type of ELO that doesn't have to do with rank, so I was wondering if I will just be stuck evening out 50% of my teams Elo in matchups or what

for the record blizzard attempted to do the same thing with overwatch but sucked at it. it's supposed to match identical size parties - so, for instance, a party of 2, 3, and 1 will go up against another party of 2, 3, and 1. it doesn't work in practice though because blizzard set wait times where the matchmaker would just pair you up with odd teams if you waited too long. valve doesn't have such a timer... hence the even longer wait times for larger groups, on top of the already absurdly long wait times that Jill called a bug.

the forced viewmodels thing is really stupid. for most other games i wouldn't care but it just shows a lack of respect for the pre-existing comp community imo. look at the stats - if there is anyone in favor of forcing them on, it's a huge minority.
