Race to the Challenger tier!

Hey all,

We're going to be tinkering with the League System tuning values shortly in order to give people a chance to make it to the Challenger tier in the next couple days. Once the changes are in you'll start gaining vastly more LP from a win than you'll lose from a loss, and you'll note that you're sometimes able to skip a division when you get promoted (as long as your hidden MMR is high enough).

We've also set the max number of players/teams in Challenger tier to five and removed the grace period for being immune to demotion, so once you make it in, you'll have to battle to keep your spot.

These values, as you might guess, will not be reflective of what you'll experience on the live server.

Good luck and have fun!

It will be possible for this to happen on the live servers as well (to help players who've demonstrated that they're a lot better than their current league placement) but we've now tuned it to be much more frequent on the PBE.

20 minute or so queue times at plat.. hardest part of getting challenger tier is probably going to be the wait

dw ghost, soon enough there'll be plenty of people in the platinum range, then queue times will drop a bit.
