Losing double elo


#1

i think there is something wrong with the game !
i lost a lot of elo in one game yesterday and today

both of them had the spoil of war twice
so the game probably thought i lost twice or something
it looks like i lost double elo !


#2

So you’re saying you lost twice the elo, but also gained double the rewards for one match?


#3

Yes , spoils of war appeared twice in a row and i lost double the normal elo
It happened twice and both in 5v5 ranked


#4

One game dropped me from 1804 to 1768 , 3 games to climb back
The other game after i climbed to 1798 i dropped to 1761
The games were normal like all my games enemy and my team rank were normal , like i should gain and lose something like 15 .

I dont really care about my 5v5 elo , but this thing could stop people from playing , losing elo worth 3 games in one game is bad.


#5

Did you make sure your internet didn’t mess up during those times?


#6

Its a server thing , my internet is not responsible
Sometimes you play a game and the spoil of war doesnt appear even if you restart your game , because the game didnt register for you so your teammates get the elo and your elo stay the same , its a known bug still happens and happened to me .

But losing double elo is new for me , showing spoils of wars twice in a row means the server registered my game twice , so it did double subtratct the loss elo as i see it .


#7

Have you checked to see it wasn’t you internet messing up during the process though. You say it is a server issue yet it sounds more like a sync issue that it started spoils of war you went out of sync during it so the server sees you didn’t get it and sends you a 2nd one. I have been able to do that with disconecting from the internet before


#8

If only the opposite was possible. Gain double rewards and elo when you WIN.


#9

It is but the timing of internet cutting off or phone shutting off has to be just right but abusing it could lead to being banned


#10

End game screen often shows up late, and until it does it doesn’t record ELO loss / gain. You probably encountered this, makes you think you lost double ELO when it was probably the screen from a previous game.


#11

no iam sure it was for that specific game
if it happened to me once i would ignore because i gnored it when it happened
but the next day happened again and the same pattern , spoil of war twice and the elo loss big


#12

the spoils of war were back to back no delay
once i clicked and finished the first one the second one popped directly

so its the server sending me spoils of war twice , nothing wrong with my connection


#13

Again back to back sounds more like a quick drop in connection


#14

then can you explain why the no game registered bug happens ?
is it a connection problem too ? , man iam sure 100% its a server problem
the server by mistake do things , and it looks like double elo loss is a new bug instead of the no elo at all .


#15

Both sound like a sync issue(netcode) that is triggered through network connection(or ping spike) with the server trying to correct it


#16

we need an ex dev opinion because no devs here
@VideoVillain is this server or connection problem ?


#17

Ive gotten double spoils before i think 3 times - it was right when 5v5 ranked came out and I dont remember my rank being doubled; it might be from SEMC’s 20 game boost shadowing it, but my sunlight definitely did.


#18

I’m beginning to get the feeling no answer will be satisfactory.

It just sounds like a run-of-the-mill connection issue.


#19

With all the changes that have happened since I left, I’d only be able to speculate. It sounds like a connection issue for the spoils showing twice, the trigger getting hit again somehow. I doubt you actually gained double the rewards on the server-side. Even if it showed you gaining twice, if you log out and back in, you’ll probably notice the numbers are down half.

As for the Elo, that would likely be a visual delay catching up.

But again, I’ve been out of the loop now for a few months and many changes came out!

But it sounds like something that would get investigated if you sent a message to support.


#20

I had it happen twice too… So it isnt just him…
