Treyarch Addresses Unfair SR Rewards in Warzone Ranked Play Resurgence

The Issue with 'Taps'

One of the main concerns raised by the community is the practice of 'taps' in Warzone Ranked Play Resurgence. 'Taps' refer to when a player downs an enemy, but their teammate finishes off the downed enemy to earn SR for an assist. This strategy has been criticized for unfairly awarding teams SR for unearned points and disrupting the flow of matches.

Changes to the SR System

Treyarch's upcoming update will address the issue of 'taps' by adjusting how Kill & Assist SR is awarded when engaging with downed enemies. Players will now only receive kill or assist credit if they down an eliminated player or damage an eliminated player shortly before they get downed. If a player did not do damage shortly before the enemy was downed, they will earn squadmate kill SR instead of assist SR. Additionally, users will earn squadmate kill SR regardless of whether they are alive or not.

Streamlining Gameplay

These changes aim to streamline gameplay by removing any benefit from tapping. This will put an end to the 'stop-and-start' gameplay loop caused by squadmates waiting for someone else to finish a downed player. The update does not have a specific timeframe, but players can expect these changes to be implemented in a future update.

In conclusion, Treyarch is taking action to address the issue of unfair SR rewards in Warzone Ranked Play Resurgence. By removing the practice of 'taps' and adjusting the SR system, they aim to increase the competitive integrity of the game and provide a more balanced playing experience for all players.
