dropping tier rank

I didn’t think that you could drop a whole tier but I dropped down from platinum to gold. Is this a mess up? Or has the ranking system been updated?

A couple of months back or so it was updated so you could drop down tiers.

buuuuuuuun

Yeah it was discovered a couple months back. At first it was believed to be a glitch, but since it hasn’t been fixed I’m going to assume its intentional. Personally I’m against it as it promotes smurfing.

Given that nothing stops anyone from smurfing in the first place, I kinda doubt being able to drop tiers is providing that much more incentive to do it.

But now you can rank low, gradually climb by winning against players who are not actually the same rank as you, and then purposefully de-rank back down once you climb too high. I think this actually may make it harder for players in the lower ranks to rank up since onyx players can go up against silvers if they want to.
