Team qualifier points

Hi

I noticed something strange today with team qualifier. I checked the website for team qualifier just to make sure, and it says that you lose 3% points when you lose. Well, I started out with 4k points. Won 8 in a row and I was up to 4500 points. Then I lose 6 in a row and I'm down to 2400 points.

Basically it went down like 4500 -> 4000 -> 3600 -> 3200 -> 2900 -> 2600 -> 2400. With my math skills, that is not -3% points for a loss. That's like 10% loss. Absolutely ridiculous in my opinion... Hope it'll be fixed.

What I think happens is that when I play vs 4 enemy player team, I lose 3% to each enemy in team, hence I lose 12% of my points. However I don't gain 3% from each of them when I win...

It's normal. No bugs there.

Well, it's either the worst design in the world for an arena points system, or then it's a bug. Having a hard time believing that this is, indeed, intended behaviour.

Yeah, thats a real weird settings. I am not sure how it works. But your win is fixed no matter how many team members there are but the loss is equal of 5 members and are shared to all team members. So if you are alone in team you loose points for all 4 free spots aswell. We could think that TQ did it to encourage people teaming up and helping poor people to get in good teams. But i doubt that TQ care. So its most likely their mistake that they will never admit.

I've had it confirmed that the numbers are correct, and there is no mistake in the calculation of points.
