Is this change in effect already or will it be in effect in Season 2? It was 0 for loss a few days ago.

I think giving points for draws is a bad idea as people will offer draws on maps they don't like, or simply try to offer as many draws at the start of games as they can to get more points quicker.

my 2 cents would be to have 0 points for a loss, you don't want to discourage playing because it might hurt your score. and for an average player you might expect roughly even win/loss ratio, can you imagine how discouraging it would be to have 0 points on the board after playing all day?

Why would you sacrifice a 4 point swing with someone above you in leaderboard placement for a 0 pt swing? There is no reward for 2nd place so this doesn't really give you much of a competitive advantage. The current system also already has ties reward you for the same amount with less of a potental swing to push you towards actually playing yet people still dont farm ties.

The point of 2/1/-2 is to make skill actually matter in a ladder competition while still rewarding activity. If we want pure skill to determine the winner we would do 1/0/-1. 2/1/0 purely rewards activity and someone that is capable of winning 20 games without losing a single one will be dominated by a dude that scores 25/10/900 which is totally ridiculous in my mind.

A dude with below 0 points will not be on the leaderboards for anything but early on in the season because it only shows the top 10.

If players from different divisions matched then they could both benefit from drawing esp if they dont like the map.

Why? Lets say 1890 matches with 1830. Lets say the 1890 somehow has 60 percent chance of winning. In 5 games he would win a total of 2 points (6 pts -4 pts). Lets say they draw every game. He would then win 5 pts. No change in ladder rating for both players. Remember they are diff divisions so theyre not competing vs each other for the ladder event title so no differential from one winning and one losing.

Potential for abuse opens (two similar rated players rematching and drawing forever), and even without abuse the clearly optimal strategy when closely ranked players in diff divisions encounter one another is to draw.

Highly doubt most people would do this though since majority of players are cool like that

You can literally do that with the current rules but no one is doing it. Same logic applies. Way faster to draw 6 times than win 3 games in the current rule set.

Personally I have no qualms with doing 1/0/-1 (what you guys are basically arguing for) but it’s Rowey’s call. I didn’t really put much weight on the abuse potential for draws because no one was farming draws in this current system anyway. The only reason it would be done in the next one is because people brought attention to it.

what you are saying makes sense if you are talking only about skilled competitive rankings, but if the goal is to increase participation in ladder and have more ladder games played then this will do the opposite. average players will not participate in a ladder system that shows them as 0 points, or even worse negative points, for having put in the effort of playing a bunch of ladder games
