There is no way. I dominated in most of my games as Doomfist in Master.

Are you telling me that almost everyone that played in Master last season was in the wrong rank?


I also decayed 2-3 ranks in each role. They clearly state they removed decay in the patch notes starting with the beginning of this season so what gives? they need take the game offline for several hours and make this right.

Same master 1 to dia 1

Just leaving some evidence here why it’s unexpected

Diamond 2 to Plat 2 here, similar story for the last few seasons aside from when i went from plat 1 to silver 5

I wanted to update this bc I am very frustrated now. I played my 5 games to rank and now I’m back up to GM 5. I only got a masters title. So stupid. I don’t see how my mmr was so low that it brought me from masters 4 to GM 5. Fix your stuff blizzard.


clearly decisions are made factoring only the negative side of things:

PATCH NOTES: “Matches left in Competitive Play will also have a more negative effect on a player’s Skill Tier and Division after a 5-win Competitive Update.”

my response: invalid and incompetence. since many use to return and win following an involuntary disconnect. now, zero point in returning. devs create their own problems.

PATCH NOTE: The start of a new Competitive season also no longer fully resets the severity of these suspensions and bans. This should hopefully prevent players from leaving Competitive games at the end of a season without facing meaningful consequences at the start of the next.

my response: invalid and incompetence. because some users select wrong role. so they leave match. no one is affected. thereby proving suspension invalid.

PATCH NOTE: “Seasonal Rank Decay Removed
Starting with Season Four, a player’s Competitive Play rank will no longer be reduced at the beginning of a season. Furthermore, the effects of this reduction of rank from previous seasons will also be removed. Depending on how many games they played during the previous season, most players will see their skill tier and division increase. A player’s skill tier and division at the beginning of Season 4 will now closely match the matchmaker’s estimate of your current skill.”

my response: utter bullsh!t. that’s not what occurred for thousands of players.

Developer Comments: The previous seasonal rank decay was causing considerable confusion for players, who would see players in their Competitive games who did not appear to be of a similar rank. Often these players were actually of similar skill, but they had not played enough games during the season to compensate for the initial decay.

WTF does this even mean?

i’m so confused on how that’s even a thing when a dev straight up said that in s3 they were being too harsh on people.

Blizzard already knows about this issue.

“We are investigating an issue where Season Three end-of-season final ranks were modified causing lower tier rewards issued for some players.”

valid. however don’t expect a response. this only proves that whatever devs say, the opposite is true.

You are not alone in experiencing this bug. Here’s a link to my post in case you’d like to read more about this issue: Here’s a link to my post in case you’d like to read more about this issue: Comprehensive Thread Of All Top 500/Competitive Bugs. I put your thread under: Incorrect Rank Adjustment. Please help in spreading the word about this megathread and other related threads, we must demand the Developers to give us the rewards we rightfully earned.

opposite happened to me, plat 1 to diamond one! I’d say i’m not complaining but i am, i keep getting crushed.

Oh, this is somewhat good news. I didn’t realize i got like a lower rank reward too lol

Stop posting this shlt. You and that other guy are just spamming this nonsense over and over again without providing a link to where the devs have said this. And you are the only 2 people who seem to have heard it.

I agree and tried to find more counterarguments, but why bother.

It was updated

We are investigating an issue where Season Three end-of-season final ranks were modified causing lower tier rewards issued for some players, and for current rankings to have wrongly decayed. Players who reach their next Competitive Update should receive their expected ranks.


I wasn’t deranked either. I went up from GM 4 to GM1 on support. My other roles stayed GM1.

What are your 10 per 10 stats?
