Hearthstone Battlegrounds Rating Reset Incoming next week
Battlegrounds Rating Reset Incoming!
Prepare for a fresh field! Next week, all players’ Battlegrounds rating will reset to 0 to make way for a new rating system. More details coming soon!
How does it work?
When the reset happens, your visual rating will go to 0, and your matchmaking rating will stay the same.
That means you will not be matched with Players a lot better or worse than you, but equally like in the current system.
Matchmaking Rating: Your rating that we match you with Visual Rating: Your rating you see on your account
When reset happens your visual rating will go to 0 and your matchmaking rating will stay the same. You will progress from 0 for 30-60 games until you matchmaking rating and your visual rating are roughly aligned, at which point you will stay the same rating unless your skill level improves.
It’s very similar to how the star rating reset system works in constructed Hearthstone. We feel like that system was relatively successful because hardcore users zoom through the system pretty quickly and less hardcore users get to play in a system that is mostly progression based. It can feel pretty crappy if you are new bg player and your experience is just tanking your rating for your first X games.[/bluepost]
Rating Resets in the Future
According to Iksar Rating Resets will continue with that every single major event.
[…] Beyond 18.2, we have plans for a rating reset in 18.4 and we will reset again every major battlegrounds patch. Rating reset will also likely involve some iteration based on player feedback, so we’ll continue to adjust until players feel like we’re in a good place. In the interim, hope you are enjoying BG and you get really big pogos. [/bluepost]
first reset is planned to be 3 months in, then every 4 months afterward. We've never reset BG before so I wouldn't doubt we'll land on something different after feedback.— August Dean Ayala (@IksarHS) September 24, 2020
