S3 Final Week

Postby seriousjest » 18 February 2017, 12:25

EDIT: Standings updated below, current as of 21 FEB 17 at 1030 GMT; please also note that these rankings are pulled directly from the Cyanide server, and they also include teams that may have been deleted.

Hello, everyone. Okay, so after about a day of play, the new patch looks successful, and blue screens appear to be back to their regular relatively low frequency.

So, with that said, we are happy to announce a new target date to end S3: Friday, Feburary 24th. Please remember that end dates are our best estimate, and are subject to change based upon circumstance and need.

Also, we have discussed at length the significant effect that the previous patch had on the rankings. We did not want the 16 teams that reach the playoffs to be decided by a random system error. However, we are unable to distinguish between an involuntary blue screen and a purposeful disconnect. So, we are therefore put in another tough position.

So, we have decided that the final S3 regular-season rankings will be calculated by filtering out all games during the period that the last patch was in place that ended in a concession. Also, due to the high amount of involuntary concessions during that period, we will not count any concessions during that period against your concession cap.

This decision was made to ensure that teams that were in a good position to reach the playoffs prior to the patch will not unfairly lose their position due to involuntary concessions. Additionally, "blue screen hunters" will not be rewarded with a better ranking for preying on the misfortune of others' blue screens. However, coaches who won due to voluntary concessions during the bad patch period will not see those wins counted toward their playoff standing. You have an extra week, coaches. Let's go hard, and may the best playoff teams win.

Finally, because we will be filtering out the concedes during the bad patch period from the playoff ranking calculations, please be aware that the in-game rankings are not accurate. To help you get an idea of where you may stand, please see attached the top 100 teams as of February 16th at 21:12 GMT.

We will be getting an update tomorrow, and then a final one upon the conclusion of the season on Friday. We realize that this makes it significantly more difficult to determine where your team stands in the rankings in real-time, or to compare your teams to others' teams. To this we say: for this week, play often, play your best, and trust that your team will perform well enough to get you into the Champion Cup. Good luck, coaches! See you in the Cup!

One last thought,

If we can filter out blue screens from this period then why cant we filter out bue screens altogether ?

They didn't filter blue screens mello. They filtered all the unfinished matches: if you had a concession because winning 2-0 in second half you lost your win

So what if I was winning 1-0 it then bluescreened and I lost 3-1 does that mean it doesn't count either????

Sorry, mello, last I heard the ability to reconnect for PS4 is not doable any time in the near future.
