March Ranked Play Update

  • We’d like to take a moment to apologize for a lack of communication and to shed some light on a recent change to the ranking experience in Legend.

    When we implemented the 30-game requirement to earn Competitive Points for March 2018, we also increased how much your rank rating shifted after each match in order to make matches played feel more meaningful. Together, these changes accomplished what they set out to do—Legend players who were previously being completely inactive to preserve their rank were actively competing on the ladder again and their ranks were adjusting accordingly.

    We reverted the increase to how much your rank rating shifted (back to the normal rate) a few days ago to ensure that competition for end-of-season rankings wasn’t as volatile, which would have created a frustrating experience for players who were aiming for certain ranks.

    Please accept our sincerest apologies for not filling you in on these changes as we were making them. We’re committed to doing a better job of communicating these kinds of changes in the future. The integrity of Ranked Play, and your faith in the system, is of the utmost importance to us.

    Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you in the Tavern.
