Game sometimes doesn't launch, and if i'm playing and someone trys to skype me I have to exit to answer then restart game.


Also seems Xsplit won't have audio unless I start the stream before I start the game.


.......... not a fan of the new patch at all

Has someone here experimented with SC2gears private streaming?

It seems like my modem is a POS that's blocked by the ISP, is anyone getting more success?

The patch has also caused issues with placement. I've won every placement match, and I end up in silver. Then I end up playing a bunch of platinum and diamonds being the only silver in the entire match. It's even more ridiculous that after continuing to win, I'm not bumped into Gold or something. -__-

My MMR got tanked to where I was playing Bronze, yet I'm #1 gold. It wouldn't demote my alternate account for anything

Just played another 5 matches in 3s, all diamonds with me being the only silver. Went 4-1.

That's not really a bug - it's pretty much how the system works. Going 5-0 doesn't necessarily guarantee you placement in Platinum or Diamond, especially if you 5-0 a bunch of Bronze players in 30 minutes total. Once you're placed, Blizzard doesn't move you around until they're absolutely certain you belong in a specific league, and for the system to zero in on your skill level you need to reach a point where you're losing 50% of your games. If you're in Silver beating Gold players 100% of the time, the system doesn't know whether to put you in Gold or something higher - maybe you're a Diamond player who is getting back into the game after a couple of months off. Rather than promote you every 10 games, they'll wait until you level off to minimize your league hopping.

In the end, your league icon doesn't mean much until you've played a ton of games. Your matchmaking rating (MMR) is a hidden rating that corresponds to your skill level and determines who you get matched against; win and it goes up, lose and it goes down. You're getting matched against Diamond players, so right now the system thinks that you might measure up against current Diamond players. You won't know whether they're low, mid, or high Diamond unless you look into their match history to see what kind of streak they're on, so right now you could be at a mid/high Platinum or a mid/high Diamond.

If you want a super in-depth description of how the ladder works, there's a good post on TL:

http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=195273

tl;dr - You won't get promoted until you start losing half of your games since it doesn't know where your skill level lies - are you Plat, Diamond, or Masters?

OCN's own is a fantastic stream to watch. He's random Masters/GM and answers questions. Very cool guy

So I have to lose a few games to be placed? :/

That's unfortunate. I've been on a bit of a roll. But if what you say it true, then it's fine. As long as I'm getting placed against people of equal skill (bronze is far too easy, as are silver and gold).

Good to know however how things work, though. Before the latest patch, however, I was always getting placed in platinum or higher. I'll just keep working through it.
