It all depends on when you play, what maps you have selected and if you are a lobby. Legendary Eagl Master and Supreme Master First Class, they are two consecutive ranks. Basically what me and my friends had to do was to win every game where enemies didn't cheat. I decided to take a break from Global Offensive some time ago because I got very frustrated with all the hackers and cheaters. I'm top of the leader board 80% of the time, if not i'm second top. It is really frustrating to be honest. I'd say someone that achieved lem playing alone could easily push for ge as a 5 man premade.
All higher ranks use p90? This was the answer from my friends on the leaderboards. They still deserve that particular rank, right? Sometimes I get good teammates, sometimes they play like double ak players. So this is just wrong. I would love to play the official gamemode too, but it's out of hand right now. People should really not take mm ranks nearly as seriously as they do. Sometimes I get good teammates, sometimes they play like double ak players. It is also ridiculously volatile, you will derank from being matched with hackers and you can easily rank up from facing baddies serveral times in a row.
Edit: I was thinking of the concept of a second account, rather than deliberately having a lower ranked account. Yes DotA is clearly an easy game, when is he joining a team? I would take matchmaking over altpug if there were no cheaters and if the official servers would be somewhat playable. It's like 1:3 for me, and I just play my own game during the bad games and try not to get worked up about it, pointless getting frustrated and moaning about it. I'm top of the leader board 80% of the time, if not i'm second top. They are the most annoying ones imo. Besides starting a game in altpug can take ages and there is a risk your friends can't be on your team.
Just lost almost all faith in this game. I don't think that's unfair in anyway. Depending on how good the system is at normalizing elo you can ruin quite a few games for people who have no business playing against you and don't even want to in the first place. And trust me, it needs a bit of luck to get 6-8 games in a row without somebody cheating. Sometimes I've got 3 or 4 games in a row with people aimbotting with no shame, then there are the more subtle ones that only really start pulling obvious shit once they've lost 13-14 rounds.
It's great for casual 5v5 but matchmaking feels more rewarding. Maybe for the first few matches though. So here I am asking for advice on how to put up with this non-sense. But yeah pretty much any game you go, like DotA2 for e. We got to understand that these people are very likely living extremely miserable lives and this might be their only source of joy and pride, regardless of the fact that it's completely based on a lie. I'll have to start using it then and see how it goes. Originally posted by : Never use the p90 though unless I pick it up from enemies prefer galil or famas thats your problem man, stop using noob guns like galil and famas, the P90 is the gun you gotta master to do well.
Sometimes I get good teammates, sometimes they play like double ak players. Today I decided to give it a shot and see if I could have the same fun that I had in summer 2013. I don't have time for a team and I don't like altpug or any other 3rd party software. First game some russian guy on our team we were 4 premade left the game instantly and the second game there was an aimbotter on the enemy team. Ideally you'd want ranks to represent a percentile of the active playerbase automatically making each rank up harder than the one before. How do you other high ranked people put up with all this idiocy regarding matchmaking? I'm top of the leader board 80% of the time, if not i'm second top.
If you barely grinded to lem with premades even the jump to sup will be hard as you get a lot more def losses to rankboosting and other blatant hacking. . A second account is imo fine as long as it's about the same rank, but a lower ranked account -smurf- is indeed bad the ranking system. . . .
