After a lot of time spent on the Forum, I’ve seen that 90% of rants goes to MM, noobs in your own team, bad players who fail to contribute in crucial moments which results in loss, etc. There’s a simple solution (and please read the whole explanation):
The first 5 players in the losing team should be awarded xp and silver income as per win
My team lost? Well guess what, they are not my team. “My team” is something in Clan Wars, Tournaments, the selected players on Team Speak – and there, winner takes all, losers lose and so on. Here in randoms, we play with 14 random players. Amongst them are bozos, newbies, noobs, someone is drunk, stoned, or just plain stupid. It simply is not fair to be punished for their stupidity or lack of competence.
Just think for a moment: a lot of (if not the whole) frustration will be deflated. People would play happier – just remember all of your great games which ended in a loss due to “your” team, and your anger. First five of the losing team did their job, contributed something. Award them as well. There will be an added element of push to achieve something even in a hopeless situation, just to get into the first five.
No harm would be done. Competent players will earn well (as they should), the atmosphere in the game would be healthier, and a lot of anxiety eliminated. The game would be more fun to play – and isn’t that what we all want?
