I believe this is appropriate. I've seen some bad players in CW that I hope I don't get matched up with in solo and group queue.

EDIT: Stop killing me in group queue. :)

So a beta game mode will have a direct impact on your brand new PSR that they just threw onto the public servers?

I'm so glad I don't take this game seriously anymore and don't spend any more money on it. Truth is, I honestly am not sure if they are trolling, or really believe they are making good decisions. Either way, I can't say my confidence in development is improving.

It's important to keep in mind that if PSR is anything like Elo, your score can bounce back pretty quickly even if it takes a nose dive. For example, a couple weeks before PSR went active I went on a really bad losing trend of 2-12. Toward the end of the loss streak, I started matching with self-professed beginners and other trial mech players. Finally, my bad luck turned around and after another dozen matches I started seeing people I normally play against again.

What I'm trying to say is don't sweat the inevitable dips in your PSR. If you belong in a higher tier, you'll bounce back into it soon enough.

I don't want Solo-Q and Group-Q to share PSR in the first place. How I play in Solo-Q and how I play in Group-Q are totally different. In Solo, I prioritize rewards. In Group, I prioritize victory.

I think people are operating under the assumption that PSR has higher standards for a good CW match score because you play 4 mechs.

Most likely because they have absoluteley no clue on how to make it not track for CW (ie little did you know your CW matches counted on your elo rating), and implementing it in CW would mean making a normal type queue with groups mixed in otherwise there'd never be a match.

Also that guy on reddit nailed it pretty well. Good laugh, but also pretty sad because it's true.

Also true, really only matters to the few hundred people that play CW and they aren't all that likely to care.

Well, my biggest issue is that CW is still listed as being in a "beta state." The whole mode and all within it should be "testing."

Second, is if a person's PSR has no weight in being used in CW, then the results of the CW match should not impact the PSR for TDM gamemodes.

They might want to think harder about how PSR and CW work with each other... because unless everyone starts dropping in 12-man groups, you could still end up with a bunch of people just testing it out with all trial mechs on your team vs. a full 12-man competitive group.

But "IF" a CW match factors into PSR averages things out thinking you should pilot 4 mechs in one match JUST AS WELL as 1 mech in 4 matches, and people end up in a solo derp team vs. 12 Comp-level players... they're PSR is going to get screwed.

Perhaps this is what the 4 vs. 4 talk is about, and maybe they'll lock 12 mans vs. 12 mans... but if that's the case they're putting the cart before the horse.

if I understood them correctly, the tiers are based on data they've been collecting since January. So I wouldn't call it a "brand new" PSR.
