A few Weeks into testing on how new accounts can easily obtain "plat" status and Leader-board status by just doing the Following.
Main Account has slightly over 100 games played , on Engi and the account about 6-7 years old give or take.
On main account:
Second Account , is mainly an Alt account made to continue testing things out first time doing rank with this account.
Third Account, another Alt account with POF expansion made to Test win/lose difference compared to my Main account. First time Doing Rank with this account.
From just running around testing 3 different account, i find it highly stupid that my main account doesn't get anywhere near the amount of win/lose ration compared to the second and third account. Is it because i Play to often on the main account or is because the Main account is a few years old and already has xx amount of rank games played making the hidden MMR already fixed? Those this allow new fresh accounts to easily get EASIER games or better chances of winning their games? Account 1 and 3 are the same kitten just less total play games, however even when starting off on my main account for this season matches were NO where near as easy as the ones i get on account 2 and 3.
On account 2 i don't even play thief like that however playing P/P deadeye isn't as skillful at all however im able to carry games 10x better and easier by playing a class like this. I'm completely shocked at how easy it was to get into plat 2 with this account with almost no efforts AT all besides avoiding on getting focus on. This makes me believe match making is completely fixed on hidden MMR history and not current MMR or.... the player base has really really gotten so bad that such builds like this can really get players to such a high level without punishing their game play at all or spec. If so then whats the point in playing "meta" builds and not trying meme builds instead?
Account three has with out a doubt made me want to cry out of frustration on how it's possible for the same exact build and class be on a completely different win and lose ration. Current planning on making my Main account to be a "gold grinder" for PvP as it is right now and focus on Account three into being my PvP account for serious matters when doing Rank games only. In Order for account three to stay somewhere in the 1700 rating i need to continue playing 1-2 games a day and focus on not getting to "greedy" with wanting to play more because 1 lose on that account would easily lose me over 27 rating , when one single win can only get me 7 ratings.
This has made me believe that newer accounts get easier wins and easier noob stomp matches for players to carry compared to older accounts, If you don't believe it I highly suggest in doing some of the testing yourself. You can make a new account and go strictly to PvP after getting level 20 in the arena where you'll also notice that Unrank match ups are INSANELY unfair (1vs4 at mid) where players don't even dodge lol. Which leads me to believe it's the same thing when going into rank for the first few games, your match ups are no different from rank TILL after you get placed somewhere in plat that when SOME games are a bit harder but a majority of them don't even seem that hard at all. Rank rating and titles at this point are just 100% meaningless and doesn't really determine 1 skill level at all.
