    Stats do not affect MMR gain/loss at all.

    The way the system works is, it takes your ELO into account. ELO is a hidden number, and is as close to a "skill rating" as any online system has. It goes up when you win, and down when you lose. Of course, the higher/lower your opponent's ELO in regards to yours, the more you gain/lose upon winning and losing.

    With the reset of the season, however, all ranked ELOs were supposedly reset. This means that, if HiRez' systems are designed like a normal, intelligent person would design them, both of you had your ranked Joust ELO reset to 1500 and thus gained/lost the same amount of ELO. Has your friend played either of the other ranked modes at all?

    Many people are finding the Season 4 rankings to be... problematic.
    I do not mean to insult your skill, but do not be surprised if you hit platinum or even diamond with little to no effort. What was S3's Gold is S4's Diamond, few players in Diamond are as skilled as Diamond used to imply.

    Im right there with you, before the reset I was platinum 2, I won 8 out of 10 qualifiers and was placed at silver 1... makes 0 sense but w.e hirez does w.e the fk they want whether its logical or not (mostly NOT)

    Not anymore, it seems that putting everyone in a higher tier in the previous split didn't work out, so now Hi-Rez is putting everyone in a lower tier, for example, I was platinum 2 last split, I didn't got placed there, I actually had to reach it because I got placed in gold, and now I won 8 out of 10 matches and got placed in gold 4.

    Working the way up from Gold/Plat is much more healthy than everyone being in Diamond III after 10 games imo. I'd rather have to work for something and earn it rather than being given it. My diamond rank last split meant absolutely nothing as everyone was being placed there after qualifier even if you lost like three or four games.

    As I see it, the new system is great as it tests the players skill and determination to reach their ranked goal. Because you are lower tier, it drives you to overcome the enemies in your way in order to reach your goal.

    Think of it as a midyear test of all the skills you learnt in the previous split.
