Ok so trying to make sense of the way rank is calculated, and I already asked briefly in another topic and it was explained roughly how it works but Im really looking for a more detailed answer as it’s not making sense to me right now.
Ill give an example from 2 matches I just had (Im gold 1 currently)
1 st match, I come 3rd behind 2 gms and actually lost rank
the 2nd match I came 3rd behind a gm and a gold that was below me and no rank change
So apparently I lose more rank for being beaten by gms than those below me? Its also happened where Ive maybe come 2nd to a silver and gained a few ranks somehow, or been slaughtered in a room full of gms and still somehow gained a bit of rank.
The only thing I can think of to explain it is if coming 1st in a round plays a part in it? If coming 1st in a number of the rounds gets you some rank regardless of the level of players then maybe thats why its fluctuating As sometimes you win a few rounds but points get taken right at the end. Although saying that I had a match earlier where I won most rounds but had points taken at the last minute and ended up 2nd to a gold and lost rank
Please help me with some facts and figures on how exactly the game calculates what you receive.
Thanks so much for your help much appreciated
