The issue is that for most players, the incentive to arena is to get bonus, and maybe tokens- not to win. Pair that with a slow queue and most players will just try to get matches over as quickly as possible, to the detriment of their teammates.

The teams that were throwing last season did this by queueing naked to quickly die. I don't suggest people will do this in Solo Queue 3v3, but someone who is capable of healing or tanking might go DPS instead to get the fight over faster, one way or the other.

You'll have people who are in it for the wins and people who are in it for the bonus, and they are on the same team with conflicting interests.

The solution to this would be to award more bonus for a win in order to encourage more people to try.


Also, this is not an argument:

A single person who queues a ton and loses a ton is not proof that your system works. It's exactly as I said. Someone like Philog who is just in it for the bonus will queue without caring about winning, to the detriment of his teammates (36% win rate).

Of the 281 players registered in arena, only 23 have done over 100 matches this season. Most people simply aren't getting many matches.

For slow effects, use the slow % but as a negative.

Just repeat for multiple effects.

DO NOT multiply by 1+slow% to get your new delay. 1*1.4 is not the same as 1/0.6 and your answer will be wrong.
