You haven’t played very much ranked, you can run into them even if you’re the highest tier if not enough people are playing.

I have not played ranked since about 3 months ago. Waiting 10 minutes or more just to have a “chance” to play match(yes a “chance” because most of time you can’t even call that a match ,is not worth to call a 4vs5 or 5vs4 a match) is not for me.

I wonder if for a bronze is painful to face a silver like when a gold faces a cobalt xD

Sorry for offtopic but how can you be so unlucky? 600 matches and still bronze.


(Xenithos) #5

To be honest, I’m not sure we’ve ever shared performance, usually just the card results… but if you insist, here’s mine. Got my last rank up in the last 3 hours of the season, rofl:



Card rewards, I also have the ranked obsidian Fragger and Javelin.

The way Elo works is that if you’re losing to people it thinks you shouldn’t be losing to to raise up, then you go down further, if you win to people it expected you to lose against, you go UP further. If you are doing exactly what it suspects the movement slowly statics out. This is why she’s stuck in Bronze, she’s actually bronze level play, or for probably the first 2/3 of her matches she was that skilled.

Think of it this way, she has a perfect 50.16% win ratio. IN BRONZE AREA. Which means she’s exactly where she should be. If you have a perfect 50% win ratio in elite, then you’re where you should be, IF you were only facing other elites. Most elites have higher than that because they often end up facing people that are not elite caliber. Otherwise, the Elite player would likely start dropping ranks again easily.

Compare that to my 58.18% win ratio, the game is seeing that I am still more consistently winning, so it will continue to pair me with higher players until I start consistently losing, and then it will balance out. But either way, it’s pretty sure that I’m in the higher gold area, though most people I know value me as in the cobalt region. I just don’t have enough luck to get paired with people that know what they’re doing, or consistently put against just gold or cobalt users, usually unranks, silvers, sometimes even bronzes I end up going against, or WITH on my team. Which skews information and generally makes for messy numbers.

10 of my losses was one night against only one team that was Queuing and I was solo queuing against a 4 man from CS:GO. They were elite within the first three weeks of this season I believe. Dropped me from gold agent/recruit? Gold1? to bronze 5 (bronze master I believe it’s called) within the first 25 matches of my playtime this season. Wasn’t fun getting that back as I was consistently queued with people lower than me against randomly decent people that were probably as unlucky as I was against the same group. I only lost 2 of my placement matches just solo Q ing.

TL:DR If you’re in bronze at over 600 matches you’re likely a bronze or maybe low silver in skill.


(ThePigVomit) #7

I’m really not getting the disconnect. You’re well over a 1:1 win loss ratio. Heck I was up just 10 and made Gold Specialist, wound up minus 2 at Gold Recruit with probably 150 matches. Granted I started the season as a silver master.

My highest was from preseason where I was a gold 5.


(STARRYSOCK) #8

I ended up in gold 2, but I really didn’t play much.
Only around 15 wins and 5 losses I think? I’ll get a screenshot next time I remember


(Darkwolf3802) #9

I ended up bronze cause most of my matches I got stuck with quitters, throwers etc etc. Otherwise id have been gold.

Mean. Funny. But mean.

Even more rare than Vanillas urban legend.

According to Martha’s steam profile she played 192.4 hours in the past two weeks, which means on average 13.9 hours per day. So the answer to your question would be “No” I suppose.

Solution: Find a party of 5

Works if u have friends that play


(Splicerrr) #16


Heres mine. I tried to rank up to Gold Master before it ended, but just gave up midway through and played for points which made me derank and my w/l ratio so crap lol.

I only bought 2 RS4 Loadout cases. The rest were dropped, so I was pretty lucky.

Didn’t get that many weapon skins, although I did manage to get a timik and a crotzni :slight_smile: God everytime I see the double smjuths I get triggurd. I also got the 2 obsidians as well


(JShug07) #17

612 matches wow,I was able to get Silver recruit after playing around 150 matches the fact is it is so hard to find any opponents when you are from Asia and it is kinda unplayable at 300+ ping .The worst part is you need a party to find opponents quickly but I don’t have enough friends to make even a party :frowning:


(CryonicArrow) #18

I managed to stay in sliver after bouncing back and fourth between silver and gold for most of the season.

(SM83 Power Operative ) #19

Cobalt Officer. I’ll upload a picture next time I’m not using a potato computer, but that might be a month or so. That or @STARRYSOCK can testify for me. His unranked/silver/gold squad kicked my ass one day and that dropped me back down into Specialist. I never broke through Officer again… and my life has spiraled out of control since then. I’ve moved, changed jobs and now work ungodly hours, and my Dirty Bomb machine is collecting dust in storage. Starry ruined my life. :’(


(Otton99) #20

I didn’t play that much ranked and most of it was during the last two week. On the last day i went from barely being cobalt specialist to cobalt master.
