I used to hit Diamond in the last few seasons, but this month I played weird decks, tilted and misplayed quite a lot, so I ended up hitting only Rank 6. I was surprised to realise today that my rank was reset to 18, while it used to be reset to 11 when I ended the season in the Diamond division.
I think this is weird: one rank difference implies 7 ranks difference at the beginning of the season. This is not a complaint, I don’t care too much about climbing to the top of the ladder, but I’m surprised to see this huge gap in the Silver divison upon season reset.
Why is that? I believe that a more uniform distribution of players on the Silver division would be beneficial to everyone. This way, new players won’t be crushed by expert players hitting Rank 6 and good Diamond players won’t be matched up against top S-Rank players.
