He is talking about how the ranking system seems messed up because it takes so long to level up.

Win 10 games in a row, go up 1 level. Than lose to a bunch of people whose highest skill is 20 higher than yours, and go down.

he means the current ranking system is mentally handicapped.

You play 20 games. win the first 17, go up no levels. lose the next three, go down 5 levels.

well, i know its not much relief, but i'm going to post my interpretation* of the trueskill system, since its been brought up a few times:

-if the system thinks you will win the game, and you do, in fact, win; you will rank up slowly
-if the system thinks you will win and you lose, you will rank down quickly
-if the system thinks you will lose and you lose, you will rank down slowly
-if the system thinks you will lose and you win, you will rank up quickly

so, using the "20 game" example from earlier, if you win the first 17 and the system thought you should win all or most of those, it wont do much for your rank. but if it thinks you will win those last 3 as well, and you lose, you'll rank down almost immediately.

it doesn't really matter how many you win/lose in a row, they're really all independent events

*i'm not trying to say what anyone here has said already was right or wrong, but when i came across this explanation, it made a lot more sense to me

I HATE NEW ACCOUNTS. Oh deary they make me want to stab people in the face. And don't even get me started on the broken rating system... I can't go past rank 20 even when we won like every stinking game... and I was always + on k/d...all my team would rank up and I wouldn't. Evil or Very Mad
