RE: Less Rumble, More Tumble?

It's 1% of your current ECR when you start the battle. So if you are playing at 90% ECR, you use 0.9% of your ECR and so forth. I think this allows you to play around 40+ games per day without fear of it getting below 50% ECR.
Thanks. So the good news is I don’t need to play as many games. The bad news is this is a nerf!
By about 5 games if I were to run from 100% to 75%. (30 games total)
75% to 50% gets you about 40 games.
Assume we play once every 2 days, we are losing 20 free games.
But from rewards perspective, we are no longer penalized because of ECR right? So kind of a wash?
Not as good if you are after ratings and not rewards.
This change looks like it's targeting players/bots that just run down their ECR in search of rating. Does look like a nerf disguised as a QoL upgrade.....
Rewards wise, I think only time will tell because the SPS rewards are from a pool, so if everyone is getting 100% all the time, the pool should deplete faster as well. Whether that is offset by the reduction in games played, that will take a few seasons to pan out. Also, less games played is not a good thing if that means taking longer to match-make.
Everything SPL does has a butterfly effect.....good or bad, we will never know till the next change.
Cheers mate :)
