What is a new season like?

It is just like diamond players beating on silver and bronzies for a month straight until everything is normalized?? Are people excited about the fact they get to play with silvers and bronzies again?

Things don't get reset like that.


And if they did, most plat and diamond players wouldn't be sitting down there for a month.

I know, but most of them wouldn't play right away. Also explain to me how it works if I am wrong because I really have no clue how it resets.

The way the reset works is it tries to normalize the curve around 1100-1400 elo, (last time don't remember the exact range) so while the plat/diamond people will fight a few silver/gold, their MMR allows them to climb the ladder faster they should not play vs bronze though.

so in about 10 or so games they will probably go back to where they were.

The one who start it later cause minor upsets if people are doing their placement matches as well, but that mainly luck and about as common as smurfs, so yea.

Why did you bother to read this?

IIRC last time the delta between your elo and 1200 was halved. So 1600s became 1400. 1500 became 1350. 800 became 1000. Etc.
