So the system is fixing your CSR. I knew that already. CSR is not a level playing field. That is anti competition.
My problem is that MMR is heavily weighted towards kills. For example, in that match each of my teammates would have got a positive MMR impact and I would have got none, or a negative impact, because my KDR was negative. That is despite me winning us the game. I will stick with using that term because objective time is literally the point of the mode.
Sure, they got kills to allow me that time, but it was me who actually won us the game by risking myself to grab the ball. 2.40 is a massive chunk of ball time, and you don’t get that from just hiding in a corner. I was rotating around the map to keep away from kill zones. They sure weren’t going to do it. Without me they would have lost that game by dozens of points, albeit with really healthy KDRs! Even when they had the chance they went nowhere near the ball. Made sense when I looked at their peak CSR after the game on halo tracker. I have not seen one player over Onyx 1600 play the objectives consistently, on streams, in my games, anywhere. They always go for kills only, and there is a reason for that, and it isn’t selfless dedication to the team.
And no; being the slayer is not the hardest job in an objective game type, it is the easiest time to get slays because everyone is focussed away from you. Those guys were picking everyone else off as they ran at me as I manoeuvred away from danger with the ball making smart rotations. I genuinely think if I had played that way, and went positive then I would have got more of a gain.
I don’t understand the logic of defending a system that gave somebody with 80% of the ball time a pitiful movement in MMR, while the guys who actively ignored the objective got massive gains. That is just completely against the spirit of competition. Ranking should be based on your performance in ranked matches, and only ranked matches. It should not be fixing your rank based on a hidden number. If you win and perform well in ranked games your rank should go up, match on match. If you don’t, it should go down.
True skill is completely contrary to the spirit of fair competition. That’s just my two cents. I have been getting increasingly more and more annoyed at this systems obsession with kills, and I think I will now stop ranked play.
Also, surely if my MMR was so much lower than my competition in that game then I should be getting a bigger jump for beating them? No? Because that would actually make sense.
