Welcome back to the original game and its award-winning expansion, StarCraft: Brood War. Illustrated interludes bring the struggles and victories of heroes like Artanis, Fenix, Tassadar, Raynor and Kerrigan to life like never before. Most importantly, the strategy gameplay that StarCraft perfected years ago remains unchanged. Command the mechanized Terrans, psi-powered Protoss, and insectoid Zerg as they vie for map control of eight unique environments. Build your base and conscript your army in a real-time, military sci-fi vision of the future. The ancient Protoss live in harmony, connected to one another by the eternal psionic bond known as the Khala. They exiled the dissident individualists among them to the cold darkness of space long ago. Now, Protoss society has risen to unparalleled greatness, but their rigid hierarchy inspires rebellion, as the young Executor Artanis, dispatched to find his missing predecessor on a Zerg-infested planet, will shortly discover.

Just curious what the general consensus is. I’m playing with two friends pretty much since the launch, who for the life of them can’t get out of copper. So in 3v3 we’re in copper, and in 2v2 we’ve been ranked initially in copper, but have gone up to gold, pretty much imho because as a decent player I think I’ve pretty much carried us there But in gold, we’re pretty much getting steam rolled, game after game For skill, to give you an idea, my 2 friends vs me, I think I won the last 3 or 4 out of And they don’t like it, because, I’m guessing, they don’t like to lose to one player None like 1v1 either Even if like I keep harping to them it’s the way to learn and improve!
Seem more to have a perverse pleasure in wanting to do 2v2 in gold or 3v3 games, instead of practicing 1v1 or 2v
Infinite fronts, infinite enemies.
Various leagues are available on battle. It is part of the tool system making multiplayer StarCraft II available for all skill levels, along with the automated matchmaking system. A player’s career page lists their placement in previous seasons and can see their league display through the View Ladder button at the bottom of the Quick Match screen. The post-game score screen shows each participating players’ league icon. In March Blizzard began a program of modifying league calculations.
New players will face lesser-skilled opponents than before, the league distribution will be modified, and “MMR decay” will be eliminated, at least temporarily. A new player is expected to qualify before entering a league. They must take part in 5 qualifying matches before being put into a league and division. After a hidden  period of time, their skill level will be reevaluated. Players gain points for defeating opponents, especially stronger opponents. Before a match starts, players can compare their ratings — usually, one player will be “favored” over the other.
If a player defeats a favored opponent, they will gain more points than if they defeat a weaker opponent. Players also gain points from a bonus pool sometimes called “rested points”  for periods of time they have not been playing for.
League (StarCraft II)
The matchmaking skill ratings which determine league promotion and demotion will also continue to update during the lock, so games played during the lock still count toward Season 1 league placement. Now that the lock is in effect, Season 6 will soon come to an end. CET and the Grandmaster League will start one week following the season roll.
Season milestone rewards will be awarded and bonus pools will reset with the beginning of the new season.
Wardiii is hosting a tournament with some SC2 players if anyone is and matchmaking for 2v2 only seems like a flatout bad decision for a new.
Current and historic sc2 league distribution for teams. The data is calculated by counting all teams ranked in a season. If a player plays in multiple regions in identical teams that team will be counted several times for the world total. The region numbers are a more accurate way to count players. In 1v1 and random teams each teams only consist of one player.
The current league distribution for the different regions. League distribution over time. Seasons are marked by the colored sections of the x-axis. Mouse over on points to see date, season and league distribution for that point. To make it easier to compare seasons you can click “Season Last” to only see one point in the graph for each season. The last season shown in the graph is the ongoing season.
It is also worth noting that Blizzard has target percentages for the ladders among “active” players so even though league distribution looks kind of unstable over time it may be more stable by that definition.
Do you consider Starcraft 2 ladder broken?
Prior to Patch 5. Teams could either be 2v2, 3v3 or 5v5 and could not comprise more than double the amount of players required for one fight i. Players could only join one team of each type. Each team had its own name, and its own crest creating using a built-in design tool. Patch 5. Team rating consequently ceased to exist, along with team names and crests.
