A few weeks ago blizzard decided to stop point buying and win trading by implementing queuing based on personal rating. This lead to a halt of players team switching and playing multiple teams at the high level arena. My team has been sitting at 2450~ 2v2 rating for a few weeks now However, my partner figured out a way around the system to level our team rating easily.
What do you get if you take a top 5 team and queue at 1500 rating? 2000 rating? You get a sure win. What happens at 1850 rating? Teams start giving you 1 point. We tested this yesterday – by leaving the team and grinding the personal rating of the person that left to 2200 we were queued against really easy teams that gave us 1-2 points each. This week we went 48-1 (One horrible loss attempting to 1v2 a 2dps team…). Highlights of the day include playing about 30 or so games worth 0 points, playing against 2000 rated double rogue and spriest rogue teams worth 2~ points, etc.
Still, the result is positive. We’re not even up to 2300 personal and our team rating has gone up even including the silly loss. Inc exploiting and people leaving their teams to get the team higher PR. Stuck at 1800? Have your partner leave the team and play 5 point games to easily level your PR.
