Id appreciate some help with rank please, I’m gold 4.
First question does diamond go from 8 upto 1 like gold does?
The reason I ask is because I beat someone who was gm96 and he went all the way back to diamond 8. Thats a heck of a lot of points to lose especially if 8 is only just above gold 1?
But then literally 10 minutes later I saw him back at gm98, so he must have gotten hundreds of points in what could have only been 1 or 2 matches.
I seem to be stuck at the top of gold, lingering around gold 4 to gold 2, getting at most 6 or 11 rank points even if I beat a gm. Sure I lose games too, I get how it works with the points.
So my other question is, how on earth did one drop back so far, and pull forward so quick? My only assumption is that once in diamond you start getting hundreds of points for a win instead of 6-11?
Please help me understand the scale of diamond to gm, in comparison to the grind between gold 8 and gold 1, thanks
