Do you lose points for not playing

#1Viewtiful_JonPosted 2/2/2013 1:47:46 AM
I played 3 games yesterday and was lucky enough to win all 3 and got myself 62 points.

I log on this morning, to see if any one sent any messages, had a look at my league whilst I was there to see my position and now I have 60 points!

Has this happened to anyone else?

thats some fast decay its around 1 every four hours.

Also on the side it says get 100 points then win 3 out of 5 games, but someone I spotted who is up for promotion seems to have to win 2 out of 3 games to go up.

Well I cant play til monday so will have lost another 12+ by then, I should of just waited to start.

I don't think that's decay. In my experience, these weird things happen because the UI is bugged. Sometimes it doesn't show your actual LP.

Well hopefull its bugged, someone else will be able to confirm it later today im sure if its true. But does seem over the top if so. I would figure decay would be a few points a week.

You have to win 2/3 to move up between divisions. You have to win 3/5 when you are moving up a tier (ie when you are Silver I, you have to win 3/5 to move onto Gold, but moving from Silver II to Silver I requires 2/3).

before it would decay to 1200 if you're above 1200 and you dont play for a while.

3/5 is only for a tier advancement series, 2/3 is when you go up a division

Edit: Oops, looks like AppleFramer beat me to it

I still don't get how you can lose points acquired by winning a game and using "skill" (Read: getting carried <3). I mean really? Sure you could get rusty, but that should just mean you go against slightly lesser elo players, not lose elo altogether...
