So I played again a guy making custom unranked game offer, with a “3k” rank. Lost pretty bad, but looking at his history… noticed he have now OVER 100 consecutive unranked win. Pretty much always again played again player in the 7-2k range…and only player 5 ranked game ever.
I wish that was an isolated things, but I have seen DOZEN of similar profile, pretty much always 2-3k. They play like 4-5 ranked game and then from that point only ever play unranked and win like 90%+ of the game, if not 99%.
Here I see two possibility, either very very strong player who make false “3k” account for the sake of luring weaker player to play again them inn even game just for the fun of bullying them and getting easy win (seriously, few people take the time to look at player history before accepting a challenge…and most victim there are just honest player who think they will get a fair game)…of this is a player straight up cheating un unranked. And don’t even try to say it’s becasue they “feel pressure played ranked”. Nah, they so this to abuse and bully people avoiding punishments because they is no action taken again them.
Either way, that just extremely poor behavior and I am pretty sure it I am not the only one annoyed by those individual…and there is quite a lot of them in the server.
Now of course mod say than they cannot do anything’s because they cannot take punishments again player who do this kind of things in unranked. But dev do have the power to do somethings. Quite sure it would not be THAT hard to add the option for mod to ban player from paying unranked game if they abuse it (and then, if they try to manipulate ranked, just ban them for real as it’s already done). Or something’s than flag them visually so people can know they have absurd unranked win ratio so they can just avoid accepting their challenge without having to look at their profile to know they are “unranked sandbaggner”.
So please, dev…Do somethings about it. Because it is violation of fairplay even if in unranked, extremely poor behavior and ruin the fun for honest player who just want to have fair and interesting game.
