How do you get in Platinum/Diamond now?

Wonder how Blizzard changed the new ranking system, I just went 4-1 and got placed in gold.

I think you have to work to get into Platinum now instead of just winning a handful of placement matches to end up in the top division.

I did my placement matches.... went 2-3, got put in silver, which is the lowest I've been since beta started. Sucks playing multiple diamond players in placement :(

I got 4-1 2v2 and placed silver.

I'm glad of this though.

Probly they are going more by game scores. Compare the scores of a silver 2v2 or 1v1 or whatever, to the scores of some diamond players in 2v2 or 1v1 or whatever.

Big difference, more accurate.

I went 5-0 and placed into Plat. I thought that was strange.

Thats ok I went 3-2 and got placed in Bronze...Then I constantly play and beat gold players but don't rank up. 2v2s though. I guess bnet is crazy or something.

5-0 in 2vs2 and got placed in platinum, but really low ranking. So I guess, you can never be automatically placed in diamond. You have to work your way up there.

Well I've noticed for me, and I'm sure a lot of people, it always seems to show that we're facing favoured or slightly favoured opponents.

If that's the case, the diamond players should just be those who play a lot, since losing 3 matches and winning 1 still gives a net increase in score. So even if a platinum player is bad (obviously not 'bad', but not diamond material) he can eventually get into diamond just by winning once every few matches. Meanwhile, there are people on these forums who have gone 8-0 and can't even get into diamond yet.

You shouldn't be able to go 8-0 and get into Diamond. It's the highest league you can get into; you shouldn't be able to do it in an afternoon.
