Could be team mmr badge elsewise you just get less mmr for win/loss
It was party mmr, I think each team were both a group of 2 and a group of 3.

I don't mind the loose of mmr itself, I'm long past caring about my own mmr. It's just that I expect the matchmaking to try put two equal team against each other, even if it does not automatically mean the match itself will be balanced, at least it increase the probability it will be. Same reason I don't like when the game somehow put a team of two premade against a premade of 5 ( rare, but it happen ).

I usually don't look too much into both team rank, but this time the disparity was so obviously onesided it just felt like the matchmaking didn't care at all.

I think the days of fair matches are over.
Now it's all just boosters and mascochists left playing

Mars in March, it rhymes... but interesting to see what she will bring and possible other balance changes. I don't know if anyone has made any observations on the pick / ban rates since the last patch or what we will see in the major.

I hope she has great synergy with Legion Commander.
I want to see double jungler in a pro game again

At least we got Topson clinkz out of it which seemed to work... wonder if they do well if they will take him as permanent new core.
Well ana is still the permanent core if he hasn't retired.

I'm assuming ILTW will play in Bucharest on Wednesday and Chongqing if they win

Thats quite a big IF tbh... I think he was on the verge of quitting before last TI as well. Though I'd gladly be wrong.

Can't wait for the dang minor and major!

I wish I'd played more Frostivus and sooner. The furthest we got was the round before Rubick and my stack was finally getting good at the mode. 😕

Yeah they extended Frosthaven by 4 days, but nobody really wants to play around Xmas
They really should have launched it before Dec 19th.

Almost every other game had their holiday mode in early Dec

Yeah. I got to 10%~30% on Rubick repeatedly but people panic out near then cos there's so much going on.

Gutted I didn't clear it :(

Ooooff.. that ending sucked, probably gonna keep you up for a couple of nights since they lost the series.

The casting wasn't obviously that great but damn if I couldn't listen to Admiralbulldog and Synderen flaming each other for weeks.
