Well don't take it as discouragement, as far as I know nobody else has come up to confirm whether this works or not. Blizzard said MMR was a set of numbers, so this still looks very weird to me.

I can't seem to be able to get it working at all. I'm 75-55, have 888 points and 1973 left in bonus pool. Could anyone pop those in maybe and let me know where I'm at? Want to move up

edit-however, the sotis "community" is really flaky, *****y, unfriendly to
noobs, and in general really not the best to play with.
While I agree, I just think it's pathetic is all. The issue is, people forget about the fun aspect of games and think that getting a high k/d is what's more important. I've only tried maybe 7-8 characters so far and a game I played yesterday, I went without a death for the majority of the time but then with 2 quits on our side, it was 4 to 3 and that changed to 4-5-1. I think the issue is with the matching system(non-existant). If the system could match you with people your level(couple of games played, etc...) then you'll get a better chance to develop your skills instead of being creamed while trying to explore the abilities, items, etc....

I did mine, it was like a Pp of 60 or something XD Guess I'm going to have to win a lot to get to gold. Funny considering that I'll go on a small win streak, then lose a game then on another streak

Just give it time, keep on winning even when matched against higher opponents, then when you get a lose, more than likely you'll get a promotion

I'm 76-55 now, almost all my games are against silver or gold and I'm winning most of them. I had a 20-3 run at one point, and still didn't go up

Edit: My last two or three games have been against gold players who were all slightly favored, and I beat them all. Hopefully will go up soon!

nah, i think ima take a break today. everytime i play, i feel like a zombie, like im playing off instinct instead of actually thinking.

just like weight training, over training is counter-productive, you gotta rest for a couple of days.

Quality > Quantity.

Just watch some pro games and think about what you've been doing wrong. Think of strategies to stop the comps that have been giving you trouble as well, play it out in your head then try it in a custom game or two. That's what I do at least and why I tend to have such a high downtime between plays. I think it helps a lot because I improve very well every time I play.
