Derank parties

NCSoft going to do something about it?

 

I think its a bad experience for everyone. Specially when Arena its supposed to be competitive, this attitude some people have toward the system isn't tolerable, my 2cents.

At least they have the decency not to just straight up afk like so many people do ( I am assuming pvers).

 

Had someone on my server afk 3s on my team and on the enemy team once, I have never (will never) let them forget it in faction chat either as it is deplorable behavior.

 

While deranking 3s goes against the spirit of competition (while losing) and fair play (while pub stomping silvers as a diamond on the way back up), at least these people have the decency to not force people to lose randomly.  The queue time higher up the ladder is excessive, and most people just want to farm beans in 3s and this method allows them to do so more efficiently.

lmao?
First in first: why would you bother if you met once or twice a day with a team deranking? Your party will get the win and the points, while the derankers lose the points, so you are getting apart of getting together as opponents again, so you actualy meet once, twice, or maximum three times, meanwhile you get easy zen beans, which you don't actuly have to do anything for. Poor you, must be hard to stand it...
Secondly: "competitive". Hmmm, okey... 3v3 is really competitive, especially with these good interferes, which causes sometimes the actual good players' defeat. I like that as well when I'm out, fighting the opponent, I take down his 70% HP, and I'm on almost full, he manages to do a stun, when destro interferes and I have no stun escape and bye-bye me, meanwhile that opponent was a sh11t, and so are the others. 3v3 would be more fair if they took out the interferes, and let just the tags remain, so the sh11t plebs won't win with 0 skill 0 brain and full of luck.
As it has been already mentioned above, with deranking people can earn zen beans more effectively, they don't actually causes you loss of anything, so I think NCSOFT should not do anything about it as long as it doesn't effect the others in a wrong way.
I think you are the only one thinking this way and complaining about it. What a  torture and suffereng is it for you, gosh Q.Q, I almost feel sorry for you.
Ah, and if you want a competition, go 1v1 arena, since its more fair then 3v3, cuz actually, the skill comes out there. Oh, or wait, you might not be good enough for it, are you? So that's the problem? If so, never mind, practice more.
This idea of yours ... that NCSOFT should punish people who are deranking... is just stupid, you can't be serious.

Sounds like a butthurt deranker to me.

 

Don't go into 3s trying to play it like 1v1. Its a different ballgame and interference is part of it. Learn to deal.

 

For the record if you want to announce a deranking group and not afk when others want to play then I don't have that much of an issue with it. 

It does go against the spirit of competition however but I don't know about punishment. Now if you just constantly go into a random pug and afk then I honestly think you deserve a temp ban on your account.

yeh bugs me, yet it still does give more zen beans then 1v1, and mostly one 3v3 run takes as much times as one 1v1 run, so I'm going there, and anyway getting rekt that way does not happen so often, but still sometimes. and I can stand it, elseway I wouldn't keep on going there.
and well... yeh, belive it or not, I've made deranking only twice since the game came out.
And yes, if I wanted to play, and someone was afking just randomly in my party, I would be upset, too. and I would do deranking only with a deranking party, I wouldn't simply just enter to a random group to mess up other's joy of playing.
peace.

I think you guys don't get the point at all. The subject on this thread its called "derank parties" literally. I am not even talking about the undesirables who join you randomly when pressing the "LFG" button and spoiling your fun by being deliberately afk in order to derank which is like very rude.

 

I am talking about the fact that people organize parties to "derank" like if it were the most normal thing and like nothing happens about that, and yeah I do believe NCSoft should make a ban wave on those players who derank in purpose to just "farm" because that breaks the game spirit, I do believe if your games are taking too long in high elo to popup and also take so long to declare a winner, then go 1v1, if you face same problem there, then just move onto another thing or deal with the queue, its normal that only few % of players reach the highest number and therefore the long queue is a natural result, but that doesn't really give you any rights to give free elo to other players and break the competitive spirit for just a bunch of zen beans / soulstones, my 2cents.

Well you have to see the reason why there are derank parties, or player that lose on purpose to derank themself from high rank to low ranks.

The main reason being the zen beans that they will gain, but the more important reason on that is the time... Being in a high rank and starting to search for a match takes quite some time, i heard people in high ranks talking about 10 to 30 minutes to get a matchup.

 

Its not like the low ranks where you press the lfmatch button and get an enemy instantly. In high ranks you have to wait minutes to get a match. This time compared to the amount of zen beans aka soulstones due to that is not worth it.

 

I am fine with deranking players, they want to loose and i want to win anyway to receive my portion of zen beans. And once you are in such a rank yourself, you are also going to derank... or wait 30 minutes for 1 1vs1 or 3vs3 match.
