precaution 2 will tweak both its matchmaking process and its rating system in the coming weeks, according to Latest developer blog posted today. This is good news for anyone who has spent the months since launch confused or frustrated by the sequel’s rating system, or who feels like their matches are almost always skewed ( including me, the proof is my most recent reception precaution 2competition mode).

The lengthy blog post assures us that Blizzard “saw” [our] feedback on matches with multiple skill variations,” and has a plan to address our concerns. After explaining some of the reasons why I roll the enemy or get rolled by them, the article details the steps precaution 2 will take to fix its matchmaking and ranking issues.

Season 3, which will begin sometime next month (no date set yet) will “try to match pairs of players with similar MMR [matchmaking ranking] into each of the two teams’ roles,” which means you’re less likely to get tanks with a large skill gap between them on opposing teams. With just one tank in traditional matches, that gap can seem like an abyss, so the goal of the update is to “make the average MMR between each role more evenly matched rather than looking at each other.” wider across the team to balance everything out.” Yes, precaution 2Our current matchmaking system does not guarantee that each role is matched with an even ranked opponent.

Next season will also change the frequency of your rank adjustment in Competitive mode, as the team heard us say loud and clear that it is very important to play up to 26 games just to stay in your role. angered. “Starting with Season 3, you will now receive a competitive update every 5 wins and 15 losses. During Season 3’s mid-season patch, we’re also updating the UI, so information about your progress towards the competitive update will always be viewable.” Praise.

Oh, and seasonal drops and rank resets are being dropped from the Season 4 starting window—but don’t expect full rank resets neverYou are absolutely an animal. “A full rating reset won’t make for a great experience because it would mean removing all the knowledge we have about players. This will pit new players against OWL pros, which is a lot of fun for about 30 seconds (we’ve experienced this ourselves in internal tests).”

While I can understand why players may want a full rank reset to get the nasty taste of this current ranking system out of our mouths, it’s clear that it would cause even more chaos. Let’s just be happy that we’ll get more frequent rank adjustments, a clearer picture of where the fuck our rank is going, and better matches going forward. Maybe I’ll enjoy playing again.
