Meh,Blizz is on the right track. The goal is to have you lose 50% of the time, regardless of how good you are, in a world where everyone wants to be a unique snowflake, this may be a bitter pill to swallow. If you want to dominate, go twink.I understand the desire for greater transparency, but frankly, the player base doesn't deserve it. By keeping things hidden Blizz is probably hoping to delay the inevitable exploiting of the system just a little bit longer. The article says its no fun to win and end up with a losing record, but this is a short term view. If you are having artificial success because you are playing the clippers, it will shortly be followed by a long string of failure because you are playing the Celtics. Is it better to play .5oo and have your rating sink to where it should be so you can still play .500, or should you just be forced to lose 20 straight matches before you become competitive?
