I wonder if any of you have come across this problems with 2vs2 ranked stats.
The stats for 2vs2 ranked usually record fine if:
a) the game ends with annihilation (no one from the losing team members quits)
b) the game ends with victory points running down to zero (no one quits as above)
c) the losing players quit one after the other (almost together) – usually when one team mate quits then the other quits instantly, as he knows that he has no chances
However, there is a problem with point c) and this is very often abused in 2vs2 ranked games making these ranked statistics not representative at all. Many times I have wasted an hour struggling in a 2vs2 battle only to find at the end that the “smart” losing team abused the quitting and NO STATS WERE RECORDED. This is a fact and I have several replays as proof for this. The best proof is a replay of a match 2vs2 where I play as Brits and win and I have no record in my stats at all as I never played as Brits 2vs2 before. I usually play Wehrmacht or Americans and I have been playing CoH right from the beginning of vCOH back in 2006, so I know what I am talking about.
The issue with abusing the 2vs2 ranked game stats is that when one team knows that they will lose the game then one team member quits early but the other plays on for a considerable amount of time but not till the end (annihilation or zero VP) but also quits before the actual end. I have tested this several times and THE STATS ARE NOT RECORDED in such case. The player who quits first gets no message of a loss. Well how can he get it if the game still plays on. Its best then to start another game, while the one where you just quit still plays on. And I assure you the stats will not change later. I have waited more than two days for the change and nothing happens so it is not a question of a later update of the stats. THEY SIMPLY DO NOT RECORD.
This means that when you win you can get the win in your stats if your opponents are honest and stay till the end of the game but when you lose then you can just make the quitting trick together with your mate and no stats are recorded. Perfect way for building up stats in 2vs2. This is why I consider 2vs2 ranks not to be representative of anything. Only 1vs1 ranks give you true information about a players abilities.
To make one thing clear I hate abusing the stats system and if nothing changes I will delete my profile with the 2vs2 games and play only 1vs1 ranked.
