Jun 22nd 2010 1:42PM I think this system does create some problems still. And I have a beef with how the MMR point values work. For example, last night we ran into a team with only a 1500 MMR in Full Wrathful, whereas our team was only at 1625MMR, obviously, this was a NEW team because they mopped the floor with us and got 48 pts for the win while we lost 19. That's a HUGE loss in points as most people who play arenas would know. I'm not saying I'm a god in arenas, but my partner and I both have great gear I was at 1400 rating when we got our Hotstreak achievement. We got a bunch of eguivelant teams and then on the 11th draw got an 1800 team. How pissed would you be with 9 wins if that 10th team had been that much better than you? We lucked out on that one I guess. Last night, qued with my 3's at 1400 we got 2 equiv teams, then a 1700, 1900, 1800 and finally stopped. Yeah, you don't lose a ton of points but you do LOSE points... not to mention the demoralizing way you usually lose to teams with that much skill/gear while you're still learning.
Anyway, I guess my thoughts are, they shouldn't match you up MMR wise outside of maybe 100-150 pts of your rating. And playing new teams (since their MMR's haven't stabelized) shouldn't be as much of a penalty for those teams cleaning house as they "pass through" your MMR Region. Just my two cents. Maybe I'm looking at this all wrong but those are my feelings.

Oct 14th 2008 6:15PM I'm sitting here staring at the server list hoping that my server will show up soon... but as I do, I see lot of other servers going offline and being locked and so forth. Seems like a all around bad day. I'm sure they're getting things under control.
