Arena Leagues

Post by coolpapa » 06 January 2021, 05:34

The Arena league promotions and demotion are still quite nonsensical. I ended Season 3 at Elite, started season 4 at Silver 1, and just promoted straight from Gold back to Elite. What in the world is going on, and is it ever going to be fixed? I know the coding on this site is mostly volunteer work, but I'm not convinced that anyone is paying attention to these kinds of issues at all - the questions have been floating around the forums and bug reports for months now, and it still makes no sense to me....

1. You started at silver because everyone gets demoted each time a new season starts, like 2 ranks or so.
2. Some games, have fewer leagues than other games, for example Kingdom Builder has a bronze-silver-gold-elite league, while other games have diamond and platinum leagues.

the problem is it used to have more levels and now some players are stuck on the levels that have disappeared. They weren't relegated and are now in a non-existent level and the point exchanges for gains/losses to get off are nonsensical making it impossible in some cases to advance off that level.

Mr. Jack has the same issue, I imagine there are many more games out there as well.

Yes, I was in a game with someone who ended last season at Diamond 0, I think? And started Season 4 at the exact same spot. Also, I didn't demote at all in St. Petersburg. I'm still at Gold 3 there despite not having played any games in the new season yet. So there's definitely some inconsistency in the season-to-season transition.

But that would kind of make sense if at some point last season, Plat and Diamond went away in the database somewhere, but people stuck in those leagues just got stuck there....
