Edit: Here is the TRS response
Seeing multiple threads across the General forum page and here in Gameplay section and we are pretty much saying same thing and only getting more frustrated. Hoping this thread can highlight it constructively and get a response from TRS as for me and others it is something that is preventing the enjoyment of Hunt 2.0:
Ranking Scoring…how is it measured?
Simplistically what we know is this. After being placed in your division via ten qualifying matches monster/hunters, you should be matchmade with others in your division. A victory should gain you points towards promotion, a loss takes points away.
Here’s my current issue.
Was placed in Silver Expert following 9 wins in the ten qualifying matches. Next win put me as silver master. Two game crashes and one glitch game took me to Silver Expert, a low level one at that.
That was my position yesterday. Since then I have won my next six games, again mostly at stage 2. But due to either not enough silver division hunters, all Iv been match made with are bronzes, resulting in only collecting 47 points from my wins. My last game had two silver skilled level hunters but because of the bronze in there only won 7 points.
As a monster player right now I can’t win even if I go on a path of destruction streak. Only being put in with bronze divisions means I can’t win more than 10 points a game. Average is 7 so far. Matchmaking takes so long that I can’t just back out and search for silvers so I play what is presented.
If I lose either via a clean hunter win or game crash/glitch I risk losing anything up to 50 points a loss. Last loss due to glitchef cost me 43 points and a Rank. Winning 6 games in a row gained me 47 points, did not regain my former level.
If I could know how scoring is done as a monster I could try to change my style to maximise points from a win. For example do I earn more for a Stage 1 win over Stage 2 or does hitting Stage 3 make me lose points? Does a relay win score more or score less than a hunter team killed win?
At the moment it feels to me that even though I love Hunt, its not worth my time playing as Monster if the scoring for ranking makes a win worthless and a loss so damaging. I did ask during last community stream if the original Hunt mode could return as a simple ‘Player’ mode to just play for fun, really hope it can because right now ranked mode forces too long a matchmaking wait (still 5-10 mins UK PS4) and the penalty for losing so high.
Hoping someone at TRS could read and respond (@shaners) just to help clear things up regarding scoring. Tired of being angry and frustrated, so just hoping for help and answers.
Thank you kindly for reading.
