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. --- "Driving leads to hunger... hunger leads to cookies... cookies lead to destruction."-The Karma Monster
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. --- Any tree can drop an apple. I'll drop the freaking moon. Sho Minamimoto
