'being that if you're 150 personal rating below your team rating, your team will get matched based on your personal rating rather than team rating'ok, suppose this then,...hypothetically i (scrub) could join a 2200 rated team of 3v3 ( being 2 other in full ss3)then so what?...then...they get matched up to another rated team that consists of scrubs?kinda a for sure win wouldnt it?maybe im missing the point?i think they should break personal rating like levels in BG'sif your 1750 you fight others in 1750-2000and 1500 - 1750and if you dont fit in this bracket, you dont get inthis helpsa) team swapping - (everyone in the same team would ruffly have the same rating) b)team selling - (some 2200 rated guy CANT come in the 1500-1750) and 'ahem' help his friendsnothing like geting matched at 1550 against 2 guys in s3 and a scrub - if he did, he just wouldnt be able to get on the same arenathink of it as this, theyre already doing it in the bg'sby levelstwo buddies at 69, ask their 70 to help out in their WSGcant happenfixes everything imo

If you joined a team as a scrub (1550 rating) with your two buddies that had 2200+ ratings, you would be queued against the 2200+ group. But you would only earn arena points based on your personal ranking of 1550.

If you were a scrub that joined a super team, yes you would be matched against a scrub team, but your super team would gain almost no benefit from winning against them.The scrub team would suffer no detriment from losing against a super team. So it would be a completely insignificant match.You would be like an anchor dragging the super team down. Meanwhile, your personal rating wouldn't change at all because of the paltry points being gained for each victory.

"i think they should break personal rating like levels in BG'sif your 1750 you fight others in 1750-2000and 1500 - 1750and if you dont fit in this bracket, you dont get in"Except that teams generally have a couple extras because everyone can't be on at the same time always, this means that their personal points get spread out a bit, and once they get close to the "bracket change" they will risk having 2 out of their 4 people in the 3v3 team suddenly being in another bracket, and unable to play with their team members...Not to mention that it might even help those doing win-trading, at least in lower brackets. During offtimes they are much more likely to get matched against their "smurf team" since they cannot get matched against anyone outside their bracket, and if they can get one team into a specific bracket, they can probably get a second team in that bracket.
