Remove division deranking safety net proposal

So I finished my placement games for Arena and Slayer, being placed in Diamond and Platinum respectively. Ever since then I’ve been getting dumpstered every single game I play. I win a game as often as you would win a game as the rebels in the Battlefront Beta on Hoth. And as a result of not being able to go down in divisions, I’m stuck with these people who are significantly better than me, since I haven’t even played Halo in a year.

I know this is a really nice feature to have in most cases, but logically, if you lose a game and get knocked down to a lower division, you deserve it. No sense in giving people freebies and honestly, competitive, (or ranking in this case) shouldn’t have any kind of safety nets on it. If you earn the rank up, you earned the rank up. If you earned the loss and that resulted in you de-ranking, you earn the de-rank. No sense in having to earn the rank up and getting rewarded, and then not being punished for losing the game. It’s just the way the ranking concept works.

And on another note, why the actual f*** did I get placed with Diamonds in Platinums if I don’t belong there (since I obviously can’t compete #trash)? Might want to work on your ranking system, 343. No offence.

Please consider my proposal and thanks for reading!

P.S. if you had a function just to put you back into placement matches so you could get re-placed that would solve the problem 100%. So there’s an alternative :smiley:

Hey, lets place people higher than they deserve to be placed. Then, their teammates can suffer for their lack of skill and the user can hate the experience even more than their teammates. YAY!!!
-inputs must be repeated (don’t carry over) when clambering or boosting
-no social playlists, no variety.
-aiming acceleration has deadzones, making it terrible and very notice. Aiming diagonally is slower than aiming side to side and aiming up is even slower. The -Yoink-.
-radar needs to be increased or just removed. It baits people into a false sense of security. We move twice as fast yet the radar is half the size.nice.
-taking away scoring in campaign, limiting custom game options. A general rule for sequels: don’t remove previous positive steps forward that are simple to carry over.
-warzone especially atk/def is poorly organized
-removing customization options (shoulders, etc). yet again, lame af.
-not being able to sprint whilst being shot. Extremely lame
-the time it takes to die in legendary is stupidly low
-weapon timers. The timers are way way too low. Securing a railgun can guarantee that you can control that whole side of the map until it respawns. Since and repeat. (railgun is also quite op)
-and not launching with forge and more maps. Stop. Releasing. Unfinished. Products. Don’t be surprised when halo 5 is abandoned. So disappointed with your “pro team.” Being worse than Halo 4 is saying a lot.
-Campaign was disgraceful as a whole. (What did you guys work on during the 11 month delay since the beta? The multiplayer is noticeably worse since then (aiming not working and radar)).
-Lying about the number of missions? (saying there are 15 and adding 3 walk around missions simply to be able to lie about it)Unless these things are addressed nearly immediately, the population will disappear rapidly. It is already happening. And deservingly so. MCC was a nightmare and yet some key mistakes (aiming acceleration and deadzones) are being repeated. Out of my 8 friends that I play with, all dislike the game. Two have traded it on. The reset were playing different games today. They abandoned it hoping it may be fixed in the future.the lack of talent and common sense stemming from 343 is impossible to ignore. Certainly the last time I am support them if these issues are not addressed right away.
-booting/banning people for killing teammates after the game has ended? Nice
-spawning outside of the map
-unable to calculate KDA? Nice. I have just over a 2.0 yet it displays as a 10. Messing up an excel spreadsheet is unacceptable
-no medal chest at the end of games? K
-did the marketing directions never play the game?

  • Spartan companies, yet no clan matches
    -over inflating ranks. So many subpar players are getting played super highly. Take a note from league of legends. Start them low and let them climb.
    -beat downs lunging but not hitting?
    -friendly AI are atrocious. Stopping two feet infront of you, not reviving, barely participating in fights, etc
    -rarity of armors, etc does not show after unlock.
    -story writing was just painful. Both dialogue and story.
    -controls, such as for the tank are much worse than previous iterations
    -pairing full teams against a bunch of randoms? Seems balanced

Good list

You have a k/d around 1 and a win/loss around 50%

Seems like youre ranked pretty accurately.

Reported.

If 343 allows de-ranking then a) they’re admitting a lack of faith in their own system and b) are opening a huge door to people who will do this intentionally because they just want to dust scrubs all day instead of play competitively.

Then input an option to remove you from your division completely and allow you to replay your 10 placement matches so you can get replaced.

And how are they issuing a lack of confidence in their own system? That makes no sense. Just because you can go down in divisions doesn’t mean that their ranking system is flawed and they know it. That’s like saying Valve doesn’t trust their ranking system because they allow deranking.

People would constantly play qualifying matches to boost their K/D against lesser skilled players.
