…so with this being said, can Iron Galaxy finally look into Ranked Leagues and counter act the players who are blocking people?
I’ve suggested Win Streak Bonuses in the past. The higher your win streak is, the more points you win. Ranked needs to be about the best of the best (Win Ratios) since they are getting points to qualify to fight the best of the best next year in the KI World Cup. It shouldn’t be based on points alone because anyone that’s close to the top or always at the top can easily block the good players that can beat them free and force them to grind harder (more fights) just to earn enough points to try and make it to the top.
Also,right now as it stands, the highest possible amount of points anyone can get is 1,000 points. That comes from a Killer set win if the player is relatively low in the leaderboards and beats someone who is closer to the top spot. When these so called “top players” are already in the top yet block “pro players” , they make it hard for the person being blocked because now they can’t get these bonus points as easily as everyone else and have to deal with 50 points a win. At 50points a win, you have to grind harder (play more matches) which means more time spent playing. Not everyone has all the time in the world to just grind Ranked all day like some of y’all do either.
Lucky for y’all, I’ve taken the time to help validate my reasons behind this statement.
The image above is my Record for the month of July 2015 using my main account. I had a win ratio of 95.49% with a total of 710 games played. People recognize my Gamer Tag yet lots of them have blocked it. I strictly used Glacius all that month too. I played Ranked for about 3 weeks that month a few hours each day just to get into the Top 32 for July 2015. I had to play so many games, despite my win ratio being the best in the World for that month, because I could only win 50 points Max.
LCD then announced that the month of August will have a pot prize for the Top 32. This was 2 weeks into August too. I said it’s not fair that he announced it 2 weeks into the month when 1) Hardly anyone was playing Ranked because they were busy playing with Rash (who is not allowed in Ranked) and 2) Players that block us force us to play more games and automatically puts us at a disadvantage based off of time/time remaining alone. We went back and forth and eventually I said “You know what? I’ll just make a smurf account then to show y’all how flawed Ranked is.” That’s exactly what I did with less than 2 weeks remaining.
This pic above is my wife’s Gamer Tag. She plays CoD and some KI. I told her that I can get her a star on her account with less than 2 weeks left. I LITERALLY PLAYED 6 DAYS for a couple of hours each day. In those 6 days, I managed to get to #8 in the Leaderboards while balancing my time playing the CoD Black Ops 3 Beta too. I’ve never been able to even get that high PLAYING ALL MONTH on my main account. I used a mixture of Glacius and Cinder those 6 days. I played 358 total games with a win ratio of 89.66% and still got Top 8 and placed higher than players with 100’s of more Wins alone than myself.
I was able to play lots of players that I never get to on my main account. I was taking their points 1,000 at a time. It’s all because this account isn’t a “known” one either so no one knew what to expect. I played everybody you can think of too and received 1,000 points each time. I remember too that by my tenth win on this account in the Killer tier, I was already at 4,500 total points.
This just goes to show how flawed the system is and how bad it affects ‘known players’ who get blocked. How can we legitly try to get these points when everyone that blocks us forces us to grind more than they do?
