was this Lima Beans the original poster??


No, he responded to someone who had questions about it. Lima Beans is the Core

Engineer for the game (he's a red ).

For anyone that wants to know, this is how ELO decay works.

It also happens from elo decay. If you are inactive more than 2 weeks in a queue, you lose 25 pts per week down to a minimum rating of 1400.


Thanks to DopeHimself for finding the thread this came from.
