So after 10 games this season, I’ve come away with a rank of Gold 6. This is lower than my initial rank of Plat 1 from my first 10 games of last season when I first picked up the game. I’ve vastly improved since then. In fact I think I’ve won a higher percentage of games. SO why Gold 6?

I checked some players in opposite teams who were Plat and above, most had:

  • Worst K/D spread than me - Worst Win percentage So how can I only be ranked Gold 6. I’m annoyed because I feel the lower rank you start with, the harder it is to rank up due to team mates running in and getting killed, going 3-15 etc. I’ve gone 23-11 & 21-8 in game 8-9 ffs. 12-7, 15-7, 18-7 in games 2,3,4. Are the other players just useless?

Game 9 had a former Diamond 2 player in who I’ve destroyed.

Here are the links for my last 10 games ( admittedly the last game I played horrendous, but its late and I’m tired). Do you think I should be higher than Gold 6? Or should I stop complaining? and get on with it Haha

I think the ranking system gives ranks based on your previous rank and based off the opponents you won/lost against in your first 10 games. And you are not alone as it seems this is something that happens to others. Almost every season there is always complaints about this. Thankfully for you, Gold 6 is only 1 rank from Plat 1.

Have a read through the Matchmaking Feedback topics that are pinned at the top of these forums. They give in-depth explanations of the ranking system, if you still have any questions feel free to make a post in the latest pinned thread. Link those recent games as well if you have queries about what happened in specific matches
