16.6.1 Server Hotfix for Legend Rank Adjustment

Patch 16.6.1

Since the latest Patch, you could see a lot of Tweets by players that didn’t get any Ranks when they won.

To prepare for the overhaul coming to Ranked Mode, they swapped the old Ranked system over to the new, more precise, rating update formula used in Battlegrounds. 

With this server-side update, the system got changed to one that feels similar to the old one.

Hey everyone,

We are currently rolling out a 16.6.1 Server Hotfix so that Legend players see a little more swing in their rank post-game. To prepare for the overhaul coming to Ranked Mode, we did some work behind the scenes with the 16.6 patch that swapped the old Ranked system over to the new, more precise, rating update formula used in Battlegrounds. This formula comes with a lower rating movement that happens post-game, which is why Legend players are seeing their ranks fluctuate less after a win or loss currently. This change should restore Legend rank changes to their previous state, while keeping the more accurate rating update formula in place.

We will continue to monitor these adjustments and make changes as needed.
