Ranking System?

Can someome please explain how the ranking system works in this game because at the moment I’m just getting demoralised.

Last night I had 11 wins in a row and moved up from Diamon 4 to the end of Diamon 5, I then lost 1 game and wen’t to half of Diamond 4 :confused: Is this how it’s supposed to work? It’s just really demoralising me right now.

The ranking system is really messed up and I honestly stopped playin it just because of that.

The system puts an incredible amount of weight into the strength of competition. If you win 11 games against opponents that you are ‘supposed to beat’ (ranked lower), you will barely inch up. Lose a game you were supposed to win against people ranked well below you = big drop.

It can be a tough system, mentally (I don’t really play ranked, but in what little I have dabbled I’ve noticed the same thing).

Maybe I’m just naive but surely using just csr would be better?

I’ve put together a pretty good breakdown of the system HERE.

There’s an FAQ pinned in the MM forums that should help explain a few things
