Basically a hidden elo rating which you gain/lose from wins/loses.

Match making rating.

Basically when blizzards looks for an opponent it doesn't give a rat's arse what league you are in, but rather what your mmr is. Mmr is hidden and no-one knows how it is calculated exactly. All we know is that a win raises it and a loss lowers it.

It's also trivial to worry about.

While true, SC2gears MMR plugin is rather accurate at predicting your promotions. I would even say it's not that hard to find out how mmr works rather than find out where are the cut-off points or exact system frequency you have to beat a tier higher players in order to get promoted.

Ahh that's good to hear. That's pretty awesome actually!

The bonus pool helps people overcome ladder anxiety and other issues though, and gives a better feeling of progress however much it is an illusion. I think it's far from "useless"!

You can't be demoted during seasons now only during first season placement match now. Imo a much better way to overcome such tendencies tongue.gif

The fact that you can't get demoted till the end of the season is all well and good but it's more the emotional effect of you seeing your ladder rank drop as you lose points. Being super low rank in your league is pretty demotivating!

I wasn't able to watch the free live stream of the WCS final matches. Seems that you have to pay to watch the VODS.... Is there no way I can watch these for free?
post #22260 of 25319
nther,
You can watch it on youtube. If you know the name of the players, it's quite easy find. I will have to watch them myself when I get home today, because I was busy yesterday. :S How awesome were the matches yesterday?

When does this season ends? I know it is very soon. I want to burn through my bonus pool and steal other's points in the process. biggrin.gif

Thanks for letting us know this! I have a couple of buddies that wouldn't pay for the game. Maybe I can change their minds.
