Do point rewards still factor in *gulp* match length? Cuz I keep beating scrubs in 5 minutes or they wait just before the 10 minute mark to click forfeit.

To an extent, but not as much as before now. A 5 minute game will not equal a 10 minute game, but players who try to grief you by forfeiting just before "cut-off times" won't accomplish anything; the system scales much more smoothly due to increased point scales and more tolerant math.

 

We have considered instituting penalties against players who forfeit excessively and early, but I'm not convinced it's a great idea atm.

I'm getting on average like 30-35 points per win. Would you say that's good or bad? Think my max was 50 points. I feel like winning too fast is still punishing me, but I literally can't play slower matches with the team I'm using currently. 

 

I played like 60 games with a >85% Winrate and I'm only 1/10 of what I need for the Tentacool hat. Having to do what I did 9 more times feels kinda ass.

Hats seems bad anyways becsuse they aren't tradeable. In the initial system you'd get 2 points on average, so you definitely gain points faster now. The comps are pretty obtainable without excessive grinding, unless youre trying to get them for all 4 tiers I guess. So I'm liking the progression rate right now. Feels fair and its not too bad of a grind.

It's scummy, but if you run your timer to make sure you spend at least 10 seconds every move and then run it all the way out towards the end you can easily hit the 10 minute mark on a game that was supposed to last 4min. Key is to run it out when you feel you're in a spot to 100% win (though if it's too obvious sometimes the opp will ff first). Average gain was around 40-50 and max gain I got was 65 from a 15 or 20 min game vs a top ladder. 

^^ I've stated this isn't healthy competition in the past, but if my opponent is going to bring 5-6 walls to exploit time scaling, I'll take my time breaking them down

 

Doing this with a 70-75% wr gets about 200 points an hour, so +/- 50 total hours needed per 3 months

New rate definitely feels better than the old one.

It's a lot less time consuming compared to the old system (about 125 hours needed with the winrate above^). The compensation for the second upscale in requirements was amazing and much appreciated (rip the first upscale compensation though). Overall, it definitely feels a lot more reasonable and sustainable going forward, so ty devs

Unless my opponents are really really bad, I usually get 50-60 pts for 7-8 mins duels.
