Random loss of 7000 points?!

So just came online, KOTH was at around 12500 ranked points, played a match and lost a few hundred. All of a sudden I’m put on 5400 points! What’s going on? Where does 7000 points disappear to?!

Nobody really knows how the ranking system works. There was supposed to be a one-time adjustment to people’s ranking last week, but we’re still getting regular reports of oddities in the way points are changing.

I’m fine with a minor adjustment here and there regards the points, But down to 5000? I’ve never been that low! This can’t be legitimate?

This IS the adjustment.
