Can't believe I havent tought this out when i first started ranked. But about 6 days ago I started blocking anyone i deemed as "bad players" in ranked battles.
By doing so you prevent the MM on playing with people that is on your blocklist. Making the chanse of getting put into teams with people who at least know the basics on how to play to play in the games you get put it.

It does seem like a alot of wasted effort at first. But once your list start filling up, you will notice the amount of horrible battles slowly decreases.

I find this quite funny and prooves to show how poorly designed ranked system is made for this game.

lol i doubt thats work

 

well i've started slowly noticing it having a small influence. its not huge, but at least its something. and it does have a effect once you start stacking up the number of games and your list widens.

Yeah, theres always going to be idiots, but at least your crossing off one for each you put on the blocklist.

This game does have a mechanic where you dont get put into matches with those on your blocklist.

And you might not notice it that much if you play every now and then. But if you play quitealot during 1 day, youll definatly notice it. As the likelyhood meeting the same people in your battle is much higher on the same day you first met them.

would be if it werent the fact that my Win ratio has increased by 3%

 

A 3% change isn't statistically significant unless it's over more than ~200 battles. And even then other factors(like changing player skill) are more likely to be the cause.

 

Edit: fucked up my math, it would need to be over more than 500 battles to be statistically significant.

If i'd put every potato i met in ranked on my blacklist, then i would have waited 3 hours for a game. And considering how often i have potato'd myself, i'd had to put myself on this list too. RIP finding a match at all. :D

Blacklisting someone doesn't prevent being into the same team again.

Played multiple times with guys i blacklisted.

If blacklisting bad players made them not appear in your games, then you'd have better opposing teams and win less.

 

The only way this would actually work, is if the OP is actually the bad one, and being bad blacklists those who actually plays well because he doesn't have a clue, thus reducing the overall skill levels on both teams and making him less likely to cause a loss.

 

If the MM actually cared about you having blacklisted people that is, which it doesn't.

To believe such a mechanic exists is a display of great intelligence.

 

Sssshhh, it's learned to talk, one must be encouraging to help the little one evolve. We have a duty of care to nuture all living organisms.:P
