It is the truth. A lot of people already know this stuff, so why leave out the ones that don't?

They don't have to use these tactics, but they do exist and it is clear that Ronimo doesn't want to do anything about them.

I was kidding, but fair enough.

It was all fine with me (I don't really care if people play with their low-league buddies to rank up); I was just alluding to the Game Sniping thing, which is surrounded with controversy. :P

By sniping you achieve two things: a higher reward for winning due to late join and a lower reward for losing due to late join. Thankfully a loss from sniping, will have very little negative impact on your rating. So this is a very safe method.
:)


It's lower reward whether you win or lose. Do you even fractions?

Also you forgot a very important step, which is to immediately stop playing on your main account for the rest of the season once you make it to the first page, as we can't risk losing all that undeserved rating.

Good luck with that.

I guess I wasn't clear on that. I will explain clearer in original post, but what I meant was you score more points per time in game.

As in, you play four 5 minute games and score more rating than playing one 20 minute game.

Yes. I will add that on too. Thanks for both points. It will really improve my guide.

Sad fact? Most top players do this crap. I hate it. This is why I scoff at the leaderboards. They are a joke.

Yeah, the only time leaderboards are any good is when I'm in League 1.

Priceless.

Well, today I really wanted to have a great start on the season. After I tried and lose some quick matches, and after having annoy with some other things, I needed a thread like that to realize that all this * isn't worth it. Uninstalling Awesomenauts now, finally. Hope I didn't install it again for a while. Thanks.

(And sorry for my awful english, is not my native language)

PS: In fact, nobody cares.
