The popular vehicular soccer game that took the world by storm last year has received some tweaks to its competitive ranking system.
As discussed on the official website, the changes involve lowering the skill thresholds so that more players are included in the Star and Champion tiers. After the skill reset implemented at the start of Season 3, Psyonix felt the need to provide more balance for players.
Skill Tier Thresholds will also be configured differently based on the mode being played:
Skill Tier Thresholds are now configured differently based on which mode you’re playing. The skill curve for 1v1 looks a little different than 3v3, for instance. This means Doubles now has different criteria for reaching Grand Champion than Solo Standard does. Each playlist should see similar percentages of players reach Champion tier and above. Because there are more total players playing Doubles, you’ll see more Doubles Grand Champions overall.
