    SO, WHERE IS BANLANCE PATCH?

    A later update. Need to see how Turtle performs with everything else before we make changes.

    You guys are crazy.....

  • Re: Medpacks should have the ability to be picked up

    I can see this hitting the game one day. It would be a cool feature to have and would make things a little more interesting for the Medics.

    I'm playing ranked just for the skins and it's taking forever. 23 games so far, 13 wins, 10 losses. Every loss was due to a @$!# team.

    This is actually a good example showing a balanced system. If everyone ended up with a 50/50 win/loss ratio then everyone would be placed perfectly. The fact that you've won a few matches more means you should be placed against harder enemies, although this would depend on match performance history. Either way, this sample is too small to draw solid conclusions, but on the whole it looks like matches pretty balanced.

    I'm gonna see if we can pull some numbers together to help explain the matchmaking system more. I fear that there's a stigma surrounding it and potentially biased opinion could be having a negative impact on the overall Ranked sentiment, which would spread to more players and could end up in less people playing it due to unfounded fear.

    As for OP, we're fixing a bug in an update later this week which should resolve/reduce the amount of 4v5s happening. If not, we'll review and see what else we can do. Upping the min level required to play Ranked will not happen. And if you do find yourself in a 4v5, do your best to stay positive and play through. This happened to me in S2 and I managed to win a few of them.
