    Cool so any idea on what the Win / loss has to be for rank 5? I have a ratio of 2.07 or something like that with rank 4.

    It isn't just on ratio, someone with a 3.0 ratio can be a level 4 who only won games he was expected to win which someone with a 1.5 can win games he was expected not to win. It is like a point system, think of it like that. If you win a game where you are expected to win you get 1 point, if you win a game you are expected to lose you get 2. Points 1-5 are a rank 1, 5 - 15 are a rank 2, and etc...This is just an example and in no way true compared to the point to rank ratio.

    Well, it's like .. if you're a rank one and you beat a team of rank fives, you get a lot more points than beating someone your rank.

    I think they will release more ranks when everyone reaches the last few.

    Because it takes more wins to go from a 4 to a 5 then from a 2 to a 3, or a 3 to a 4. If you read it says it may take "hundreds" of matches to achieve the highest rank and that is assuming all "hundreds" you were expected to lose, if you were expected to win some then it will take a lot more. If you lost that will also affect it.

    I am guessing that it will take a long time to get to rank 5, since it is the highest and there is only 5 ranks...

    You can get to rank 5 in 5 matches. I know a few people who have done it. You just have to go up against all rank 5s I guess.

    And how does the game adjust if people quit? Like if you get in and people lag out before the game starts, does that mean you get even less points, and what if the entire other team leaves.
