In quick setup, I dont think it is fair that you lose points even if you play a person that is 50 points better than you. How does losing to a superior make you a worse player? I dont get it.

If you did play a person 50 points higher than you, then you only lose like 2 points anyway, but if you win you get something like 50, it rules. Oh, unless your the person who is 50 points ahead and loses, lol.

    If you win, you get points. If you lose, you lose points, unless you're MASSIVELY outranked. Any rating system works that way. Cope.

    When I was rated 1610 I got put against a low 1700's player, it was so crappy - but then again that was when the game was released and there weren't that many people playing then. Anyways I got over it and now I'm mostly playing people that are very close to my rating.

    The only way to get a higher rating is to become better the more time you spend whining the less time you spend getting better.

    Who ever said that I was whining? Besides, whoever asked my age, that is undisclosed information.

    Its not a complaint, just a mere observation. Besides, I do have fun, but at anything that you have fun at you of course want to get better. Its human nature.

    They fixed the system i noticed. I am actualy getting players in my rank. It used to be like 1600 and i would get a 1690 guy. Not EVEN JOKEING! but its gotten better now i play guys in my rank. It rules because if you beat a high guy you get liek 30 points but if a lower guy beats you, you loose like 30 points lol.

    Lately I only seem to get people lower or the same as me so it is hard to climb. I miss the good old days right after Christmas when there were a ton of people on and you could climb a hundred points (without smurfing) on a good night. Hopefully the X-pack will bring on the players.
