I wasn't, no. It was during work hours for me. I'm just responding to the thread and what Rento relayed about what Fizzer said on stream. Specifically:
Fizzer answered on stream yesterday.
If any of your clanmates got a match on the template you signed up for, no free win for you.
otherwise a clan could sign up 40 members for one template and get tons of free wins
was the argument
and it keeps happening to TLA because apparently they are the lowest rated clan, and matchmaking goes from top rated to bottom rated, so it gives byes to TLA whenever possible
also, byes count as losses (to the rating), as evidenced my Nestlings rating being negative after test season with their only game being a bye win.
so you keep getting byes because your rating is terrible and the byes lower your rating so you keep getting more byes, is what I understand
This screams design gap to me, and so I laid out the gap I see (to make it clear) and shared three fixes that came to mind. Did Fizzer mention on stream that he was working on some sort of fix? As far as I understand, Fizzer is not aware of the vicious cycle problem and on stream yesterday he merely talked about how he designed the system. Obviously, just because something is by design doesn't mean that it's working as it should be: design gaps are a common cause of bugs in software.
