2v2r Season 8 league and rankings


#1

My previous 179 matches were posted on β€œwhat it takes to be promoted thread”, this post focuses on how closely the 2v2r players are ranked. Nothing is easy on random, but it is possible to reach the top fast if you are lucky enough to win your first matches.

Season 8 started 17th of June, 2015.

180th lost (105-75) with Super Titan partner who has ONLY 18 league wins (1v1 and 2v2r together). This match has plenty of terrible play that shows my partners inexperience! Being merited ST just after 9 matches shows that ranking and matchmaking is just broken. Sadly OML has no clue how to fix it.

Some OSN digging about Pokepie1 2v2r stats that led to Super Titan β€œglory”:

  • 4 wins against fluffies and clever
  • fifth won against gifted and merited a master league status
  • two more wins against fluffies
  • loss against gifted making it 7-1
  • win against masters merits lift to Super Titan league with 8-1 record, that is fast indeed!
  • tenth is a win with ST partner against St burdened with clever as partner
  • losses against gifted and masters to put record 9-3
  • loss with me against masters, making it 9-4 and being a poorly playing newbie to my eyes!

181st lost (105-76) on Blitz Beach. First to have bs shooting base won. Partners experience did not help us, this map is still my least favorite one. Two lost prior season 8, so this is my fourth lost game in a row.

182nd lost (105-77) against arranged ST. This makes it fifth in a row. I hesitate early on and teammate charged regardless - chat was good but neither of us where at our sharpest.

Ranking list on 26th of June 2015 looks like this

  1. Juslas (1 – 4)
  2. supa3ek (4 – 1)
  3. Pokepie1 (4 – 5)
  4. =J0$)-(= (8 – 10)
  5. WojoVaults (2 – 8)
  6. blauentag (4 – 2)
  7. NickT185 (4 – 2)
  8. triviahost (5 – 2)
  9. Torbreck. (5 – 2)
    and it still is extremely short and missing top players. But there are some new Super Titans represented - if I had won with Pokepie1, maybe he had the top spot instead of me.

185th lost (106-79) with leaderboard leader against masters. Having bunch of simultaneous matches in order to get those five completed games once again resulted plenty of losses.

186th lost (106-80) to team that just played better than us. And we played ok, too. A bit clueless but ok.

187th won (107-80) after good straight forward attack on Sugar Rock. Great to win after so many losses, too. And this was a match between top 10 Super Titans.

188th lost (107-81) after galant fight against arranged team. Good all super titan matchup, but those bombshells were too strong on Blitz Beach.

Wow seriously awesome analysis of the ranking system.I wonder how lucky some players are n here i am fighting very hard n got to masters when most of the partners usually timed out :frowning:


#3

Also one thing that screenshot showed is you have an alternate account.What is the gcid of that account :smirk:


#4

What do you mean by alternate? He was on Juslas: it shows as master because he’s master in 1v1. What he’s showing is 2v2r


#5

Doesn’t it always shows the highest league you are in or does it gives preference to 1v1?


#6

Preference to 1v1 100%.
Besides, it’s highlighting Juslas which only does that for his own account unless viewing it from a game, which means he’s playing a game against himself, which sounds really boring.


#7

Picture is a composite of 2 screen captures in order to fit all players and they final score in single image. Picture source is genuine from iPhone.
Badge is 1v1 if you have a match from current season, I have skipped several 1v1 seasons. And if we talk whether badge is the highest 2v2 - not nessessary! Behavior has more to do with what team you enter league and when. This had bugged me couple of years ago, because Super Titan badge would have looked cooler, but not anymore. At season 8 that master badge is a result of the 2v2a performance with AlliDooisRush.

You can be paired for the 2v2r match with your 2v2a partner. If matchmaking does this to you, you are treated as arranged as it goes for league and ranking points.
After two days of waiting you do get paired with anyone, most likely with newbie first round quitter. Having alternate account countering those unfortunate matches most likely would help you to reach the top. But you need a clock running to know exactly when matchmaking turns to anything go mode.

My opinion about 2v2a performance is that a partner with whom you can meet in person to strategy talks is the best. Next best partner is willing to invest time to play moves with screen captures, shared and discussed via internet. Third best partner is your alternative account. Fourth level of partnership is chatting with in game chat and the worst partner is the silent one. To my knowledge no single player with two accounts has reach the level of best of the best 2v2a.


#8

Yeah playing as both teams is no fun.Also i checked your osn profile and highest for 1v1 was gifted that’s why i said that didn’t check for 2v2a.
