Is there any plan to reduce starting ELO below the Silver threshold.

I feel at this point all you have to do is not lose most of your placement games and you'll be silver.

With the top rating status now, all this seems to do is remove the (little) pride in acheiving Silver because most will do it, and to point out people who are Bronze as being "bad."


IMO either make Silver something above the starting ELO to make you earn it, or reduce the starting ELO.

Opinions?

Pity bump >.>

I should have thrown in random capitalization in the title apparently

They are 'placement matches'. If youre good enough to start in silver elo, then so be it.
Ever take a placement test in school? Or college? Or for a job?
Ever watch golf? No? there are 3 places to 'start from' given the skill of the golfer.
I dont watch it but I know that basis.
AnYWay there you go
