Every tier in the GC after Diamond seems to follow the same pattern:

Win 4 matches, then on the fifth lose, then possibly lose again, then go back up again to 4 tokens, then lose again.

How is that exactly 100% of the time on the 5th token of vibranium we are put up against a ultra whale? This was not the case last season.

This pattern was what I dealt with all of diamond and vibranium and honestly dumps on the game mode.

Not to mention the countless input issues..

    extra lvls and 5 wins on those lvl is the main reason for all those players, back to back 5 win is hard, 50-50% on win or lose even matched with similar roaster ,resulting on no one getting up there in gc

    Not everyone has 50/50 win rate. My personal win rate through VT has been about 95%. Also shields can combat the 50/0 win rate and still allow average players to get into GC 😉

    You're not the only one in the game mode, and the problem is is places that exceptional expectation on all Players.

    Yes, I disagree with the changes to the VT as well.
    Just a suggestion. If I get one away, I just use Shields. Depending on what I have for Units, I may have to Grind in between Matches, but it's a hell of a lot less stressful than up-down-up-down-left-right-left-right....

    I couldn't get my Konami code to work this season

    This is not even close to an unlikely pattern, given the data you provided. The sample size is far too small.

    As far as your apparent implication that Kabam is rigging the matches to keep you from advancing, you need to ask yourself: why would they care? Why would they bother? IMO they could not care less if you are in Diamond or Gold or whatever.

    Yes, I don't agree that it's rigged. I think the larger issue is the expectation of 10 Tiers with 1 Token per Win.

    I believe the major factor is the BG event milestones. A lot of big accounts are intentionally staying in VT until the last minute for rank rewards. It became more known last season how players were staying in VT tiers to farm milestone points. Seeding should solve this, but that's yet to be known.

    The number of people in GC this time around is ridiculously low.
    I'm in Quantum III with just 112 points.
    I did have to grind like a madman to get through vibranium.
    Surprisingly, my matchups in vibranium were borderline unfair while I'm matching people roughly at a similar level in the GC

    3 win token till v1 and 5 wins token to enter GC can be the way

    Uru 2 is still empty with 4 days left in the season lol

    And this is super competetive season where elite will go to live event
  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 36,082 ★★★★★
    Top 8. Out of all the GC. That doesn't account for a brick wall.

    I was trying so hard to do that but the game literally kept matching me with people so much lower than me that they kept instantly forfeiting and catapulted me into the victory track lol

    Not worth the effort, especially when you factor in cheaters also.

    Could've sworn they said they wanted more people in GC, Uru 3 and Uru 2 are empty lol.

    Stronger players being able to climb up further and faster in a competition? That's unheard of!

    Where are all these "stronger players" then? Uru 3 and Uru 2 are still empty lol.
