    Fixed. At least until the change next week, having Fernand on your team is likely to be a blessing, not a curse.

    its not a weight system its a one for one system based on what dag has said

    Notice how he speaks about teams rather than individuals. If it were has you said, then there would be no curse, and devs confirmed that Fernand was cursed indeed.
    Anyway system gets changed next week apparently ...

    Being someone who tops dmg most games, I am happy to see this change. Apparently it was counting top dmg as a win or something along those lines.

    I'm also very happy about it, PvP always felt like hell when I queued solo (usually topping warfront charts here too).

    the weird part about this is that my queues were only really bad on ecru, they didnt seem to get bad on paisley even though it's rare for me not to top damage in a warfront. not sure why this is. i've had bad queues on paisley but not the back to back to back to back losses i still seem to get on my rogue if i'm dumb enough to try to queue for a warfront, even though ecru has sat with 7 warfront dailys for weeks on end.

    I don't think it counts pad damage as top damage

    I don't see why people think this is going to change anything you will still be in a match amongst the same people as before. taking damage out of the equation is not going to be a drastic change in team balance when out has no affect on the pool of players to start the match

    It does make a difference if ELO isn't based on my damage but only on my win pourcentage. It's just fairer. Playing the objectives, topping the dps, and still losing because I'm teamed with people who are randomly clicking on their screen and probably casting spells through their spell books gets old really fast.

    Then again, if the team were made based on your intuition, then this won't change a thing. However, if it is as I think it is, then having a high ELO doesn't mean that I simply get put in one team and the next highest ELO player is put on the other. It means that if I'm significantly higher on ELO than the other players, I will automatically get to carry more low ELO players, which simply isn't fun after a while.

    Clerics and ELO rating ...
    I think it is also related to gear, there is no other explanation, that my cleric has such a high ELO

    the funny part is the reason why it was so bad for fernand is because he is a warrior. every other class switches to multiple specs including healing while warriors mostly play warlord with a ton of fluff damage making elo that much worse for match making.
