    Lightbulb How does desync'ing placement matches affect your league placement?

    Hey guys,
    Just a thing I've been thinking about. We all have seen Qazzy's SC2 Trainer. It is really great for a lot of achievements, but I was just wondering. In a new season, suppose 5/5 I choose the 'Instant Win' option while the match is going on; therefore, desync'ing them, what league would I get placed in? Will it be Bronze/Silver or Gold/Platinum? Also, what are the factors which affect in what league you get placed? For example, I won 5/5 matches in Season 5 (when in 4vs4, yeah I never play solo matches cause I am scared!) and still got placed in Bronze position. Right now, I'm in my top 8 of my division, so If I maintain that rank is there any chance of being promoted? Does the system check stuff like

    -Unspent resources
    -APM
    -Resource collection rate
    and so on..when it comes to decision regarding what league should you be placed in?

    Thanks for reading,
    Vengeance

    I think desyncing will actually mark you lost, and it's pretty obvious that you would have hacked as well.

    But in cases it depends on how you play against other players so that you will be placed accordingly.

    A league corresponding to your MMR based on Blizzard's ladder ranking algorithms. "Placement" matches are NOT weighted any more heavily than regular ladder season maps when it comes to league rankings, and actually you cannot earn points for them. They are really only there to keep the ladder pool fresh.
    Also, what are the factors which affect in what league you get placed?
    A lot of factors. Here's an extremely thorough overview.
    If I maintain that rank is there any chance of being promoted?
    Yes, there is always *some chance* of being promoted. To be sure, see here.

    No. The system only cares if you WIN or LOSE.

    While god_forbids gave some good links, here are some more

    He is right about MMR tho and how it factors into your placement, everyone has a hidden MMR rating that they carry with them from game to game and placement matches do help keep the ladder pool fresh. Also, the system only goes by wins and losses and not other details of the game, the algorithms for calculating leagues and rankings/MMR can be complex as it is already especially weighing factors of who you play, etc...

    Here is an article from battle.net generally discussing league promotions:
    Climbing the Ladder: How to Earn a League Promotion - StarCraft II

    Also here are some more links similar to god_forbids post and may give some additional information, I would use the information mentioned in this post and gods' if you are interested in just learning about this stuff in general:
    SC2 Ladder Analysis: What YOU Need to Know - Forums - StarCraft II
    Leagues and Ladders FAQ - Forums - StarCraft II
    [G] Comprehensive Starcraft II Ladder Guide - Forums - StarCraft II

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks a lot guys, I got it. If you desync the game, the system won't count it as either a WIN or LOSE. If you try it with 5/5 matches, you still will have 5/5 matches to play. The system only considers if either I win or not, I figured it out because I was put against diamond and masters league players in the new season 4vs4, somehow by chance I won 4/5 and now I'm in diamond league! lol
