Okay, so let me break this down in a more understandable way, because evidently my wording made me sound like an absolute Smooth Brain;
I was Silver 5. I had just come off of a Rank Up, from Bronze 1 to Silver 5. I played 7 Games in a Row, and smashed out 7 Wins, 0 Losses.
My Rank Update Screen showed me as Bronze 5 on the update screen, and Ranked me up to Bronze 1. So, considering the fact that I went 7-0, combined with the fact that they’d just implemented the system that was supposed to give you additional gains to get you back to where you were before launch (I was consistently on the Cusp of Gold through all of OW1.), it’s safe to assume that what it should have done, with that 7-0 record, is rank me up from Silver 5 to Silver 1 (as it did when I came out of the Bronze 5 Bug, and was immediately bumped to Bronze 1 from Bronze 5.)
So yes; I got screwed on the four ranks I was supposed to go up, and instead got reduced by one, so on that, you’re technically right; It wasn’t four; It was five whole ranks I got screwed on. Four that I should have gotten, one that I was reduced by.
As for anyone showing proof; I’ve seen several (no less than five, but definitely no more than ten) Twitch Clips, and segments of people’s VODs where it happened to them. Do I have them on hand? No, but the source definitely isn’t “Trust me, Bro”. They’re out there, you just have to find them.
I have no misconceptions about this. I’ve looked for every possible avenue on this, hoping that I’m somehow wrong. There’s no margin of error; This is a legitimate bug. This has been happening pretty consistently to people for the last four months. Just because you haven’t seen it personally, doesn’t mean it’s not real.
