    So an early WIP rank algorithm indicates how horrid the games' balance is?

    You do know how statistic work right? Longer periods of active time means more accurate readings.

    I learned the new dox spam meta by fighting the AI with it. The trick is not to get into serious confrontations, to deny expansion, and to single out enemy tanks with superior numbers... sort of bum rush em. You absolutely need to transition to tanks at some point, but open with bot spam (especially on these reused 1v1 maps where you can guess where the enemy has spawned) is definitely superior... as much as I don't like it personally. The AI doesn't seem to recognize that it's being bot-spammed and will continue to pump out spinners and infernos which are pretty much useless against bot-rushing, just keep your distance, avoid concentrations of tanks, deny them expansions, build fighters for AA, don't forget to transition to tanks, and you'll get it sooner or later. Also, teleporters+tanks= wow.

    I find that my army composition of infernos and bolos works well against them, infernos are good for soaking up damage, with a few combat fabs they can probably tank a dox blob

    it doesn't really matter.

    the point is this stupid meta/cheat is allowing me to win repetitively and it shouldn't.

    EDIT: don't blame bad balance based off 2 horrible maps

    No need leader boards,maps,balance changes,match making improvements, all coming soon, that's where it will count.

    My current uber status means nothing atm.

    Ayyyyy. Wow I felt like I was in plat for years, just got Uber today! Can't wait for leaderboards and more balance changes. I agree with what's being said above, T1 spam is too good right now, unless you both do the same strategy and stalemate there's no use for T2.

    p.s. I'm coming back to PAX East this year and taking my rightful title of champion. I lost in the final round of the tourney last year by getting rammed. NEVER! AGAIN!

    I'm thoroughly confused as to how exactly the ranking works, and I feel as though I'm not alone.

    :D

    this is one of the reasons this thread exists. So we may ask this type of question.

    Jables, what ranking model was used to inspire your own and how does your ranking system work?
