    Dear Hi-Rez...

    In 85%+ of games (not a scientifically established statistic - just a rough, but educated guess), possibly more, at least one player crashes at the start of every game in ranked. Why?

    With +8 pts for a win and -13 points for a loss, how are we supposed to prevent backsliding down the divisions? Apart from winning every game that is?

    Given that usually, someone is missing from the team, this is just impossible.

    Also, why do we lose 30 TP for a demotion?

    I've gone from Gold V to Silver V in less than a week. Yes, sometimes, I personally have bad games and sometimes the opposition is just too hot with better players and losses are, after all, to be expected, but the weighting seems grossly unfair. Stuck in low elo hell with all the other players who are clearly suffering the same BS

    Will you be so kind to provide the though process behind your “educated guess?”

    Did you know that 90% of statistics are made up on the spot with no real research to back them up?

    I've never had Paladins crash on me, but I have been frozen two times. Are they the same? Both times I was able to log off and then rejoin the match.
    The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

    I play Paladins: Champions of the Realm on my hardwired and mic'd PlayStation 4.

    We are the "balance".

    I have actually noticed this in casual. Almost every game has one person who never connects, or at least connects later into the game. While this might be a coincidence, I too have experienced something similiar.

    In most countries their internet drops just because of the region their in. Their are not this many crashes in paladins, and even when someone does crash, basically the entire game crashes, including everyone in the game. Same with LSD bug, it happens to most people on both teams. Also that +8 points and -13 points, thats based on how well you play ingames, and means the game thinks you shouldn't be in the tier you are. Thats what it does. I get about +14 tp per win and lose 6-8 per loss. So for one, no you losing tp and getting demoted because of Hi-Rez's crash issues, its because the game feels you need to be in Silver 5. I will soon be posting a guide on how to get out of Silver Hell. (I was stuck in it all last season and 150 games into this one). If your looking to rankup and not keep getting demoted, I would suggest later you look at it and read is. Secondly, I am not calling you a bad player. This means the game feels you need be in Silver 5 or lower, that doesn't mean you actually should. I personally don't see how you dropped that far and the game is still making you lose that much per loss, but maybe take a break for a bit. That's my recommendation.

    Funny when people start to talk about number to avoid the main problem, there are FAR TOO MANY dc at start in ranked to be only random related, period, this shouldnt give people any TP loss at all, period.

    They said they did fix "many dc related issues" for the next patch, lets see how it goes, my guess is that there will be even more bugs (you can't fix a ducttape ball by adding another layer of ducttape), but I might (and I really hope to) be wrong.

    I did pay a dime for this game, because I support good decisions

    golden quote : "OB64 did come out because of the responses we got during the PTS cycle"

    Glad for OB67, now that we are back on track, work on the Matchmaker please!!!

    Disconnected once and missed the whole match, Paladins was giving me a really hard time :/
    The most useful kind of teammate is one who dodges all your heals and walks into enemy bullets.

    Plat II, do I finally have some credibility now?
