the funniest thing is seeing redditors backwards-reasoning their way into thinking online matchmaking systems have all these crazy metrics when literally all they do is just check an ELO ranking. guess it's easier to invent a bunch of mystical statistical reasoning that you have no evidence for than accept you are bad at a video game
this post is peak redditor brain, a bunch of pseudo scientific nonsense dressed up like the OP knows a single thing he's talking about
@dankwraith i'm laughing my ass off at this part in the conclusion where they go "it does create more games where you have little-to-no control over the outcome." oh word? you played an entire 50-60 minute game of dota and had no control over how it ends?
@dankwraith nerds will be presented with a chaotic system of many independent actors and think it's a ploy to get at them
@dankwraith I particularly love "I've identified win streaks happen when I win hard games and lose streaks happen when I play badly even against opponents who are playing worse than I normally do". Sure sounds like you've devised some corkboard and string system whose outputs are indistinguishable from one that tries to create even games.
@dankwraith "how do you improve win rate? Well, by getting better at the game, and encouraging your team to play well. I am very smart."
