Giving money to lower brackets monetarily incentivizes people to intentionally lose if they’re right above said bracket.
the money incentive to the love brackets can be revested and only have monetary values to Grandmaster & Master ?
What would happen in-between seasons? Would people be able to simply sit on high rankings and cash out multiple seasons in a row? Will there be a proportional shift of all ratings towards the bottom of their brackets? Or a complete reset of each player's league entirely?
Already at the start of each season you already play 10 placement matches which will ruffly give you a ruff placement in the league and then over the time of the event you would still have to work to ensure that your secured your spot ?
I’d also say part of the problem is that nobody has any reason to care about their league placement because rating is still used everywhere. If you want people to care about their league then start replacing ratings with it.
I know in the last game patch the division icons are now apart of the game file but have not yet been added to replace the current rating and will look into what is holding this from becoming a thing
