    Demoted for losing 5v3...

    As the title says. I don't regularly track my ranking so I don't know if your rank updates after every game, even if it's 5v4 or worse, but at least in this one game I played tonight I got demoted for losing a match 5v3, which is very frustrating...
    We surrendered because one player on our team had been gone for what must've been at least 5 minutes and another 2 left at the start of the 2nd round. The end-match stats showed 3 people on my team, even though there were only 2 of us left at the end. Regardless, I shouldn't get my ranking punished for surrendering a 5v3 match right?

    No, you shouldn't. But setting a system in place that prevents your rating from going down in such a situation means, that whenever a game is going poorly for a team, people will simply disconnect, receive the leave penalty, but avoid losing rank.
    Maybe someone knows of a game that has a proper system for that scenario, which could be *adapted* to DB

    Why shouldn't you lose rank for losing?

    If it didn't work that way there'd be even more incentive for people to leave mid-game.

    Yes it sucks when people leave, but giving them even more reason to do so only serves to exacerbates the situation.

    Surely you just could punish the leaver's ranking instead of his entire team?

    Then a team of 5 could always rotate the duty of leaving/throwing the game between the members, overall resulting in only 1/5th of the necessary rank reduction.
    Basically, all games with a ranked mode have the same system in place, especially when looking at MOBAs. It's not ideal for solo-queues, but having all players lose rank is (currently) absolutely necessary to avoid foul-play. That is why there needs to be a report function to report players who sabotage the game by leaving or intentionally feeding.

    If you can come up with a different system, you could probably make a *lot* of money selling it to huge e-sport MOBAs like League of Legends.

    I also think the leavers shoud get hard penalty... and the "stayers" should get some bonus...
