so we just had our first week of pvp.. we did fairly bad 3-7. but as we are playing lower ranked players. we win less points and lose loads. so we will never get out of the slump judging by whats written... keep winning easier said than done. even if we had a 10-0 run we'd be 30 points higher than we were this week.. which if we lose 1 game we drop back down to the same again.how can we beat the better teams to get more points if the system has decided everyone below the line is crap and beating them providies nothing.beat a team lower, less rating yet. beat a team at the same rating (your skill apparently.. and everyone is differant remember) and you should gain the correct points accordingly.but we dont.. we had a 10 min match, really close. but we won due to me havin more HP than the rogue as both our healers died at exact same time, and i got the jump of him. them -20. us +5. surely if the game was as close as it was.. it should have been a -10 to +10 split or something. how can you punish a team for not beating someone and then not reward the winner for beating..where do the figure the maths for this crap.

The first week or so is gonna be chaotic as the ratings adjust themselves to the new normalization. Once they do this the "odd" behavior should disappear as everyone settles into their "skill brackets", at that point the winning/losing gains should even out. (Essentially a Ladder in application.)At least that's what I take from the explanation. Hopefully if it works as explained it should drastically increase the competitiveness of the Arena.
