    Default Leaving Warfront equal to a Loss?

    My electricity just stopped at the start of Warfront while i was trying to burst a warrior. Went to lunch because i didn't knew how much time it will take to recover, when i came back checked my stats = Loss.
    It is not enough that i'm being thrown into already lost games 18 times more often than into already won and collecting defeats for something i'm not even able to influence.

    How is even possible to keep positive win ratio in that game?
    I'm really frustrated. Lately i'm spending more time writing in forum and opening thread after thread, rather than playing. In the beginning i wasn't even registered here.

    disconnects do happen, but they are rare enough not to have a large impact on your score.

    keep in mind that your ELO score is meant to reflect your winningness over a long period of time.
    a single match, win, loss, draw, disconnect, whatever, does not have a big influence on your overall position.

    Ty, i know, but it is adding to the extra pain from afkers and joined too late to make impact.

    why does it matter though? You weren't complaining prior to 3.2 so why complain now? Elo is simply visible now and isn't affecting anything differently than before.

    Form a PM with other good players.

    Or just rely on luck. I currently have more wins than losses. Here's to hoping my luck continues to be good.

    Who cares about W/L ratio, it's not like you're going to get some magical currency or pat on the back. And why you even want a higher Elo is beyond me.

    Technically, a 0 w/l ratio is still positive.
