I recently played about 9 matches of TDM and won about 2/3rds of games. At one point I won 4 in a row. What I was shocked by was the fact that I was suddenly rapidly gaining rank, I went from Silver 2 all the way to Onyx 1 in the past two days! I even gain rank when I lose as long as my K/D is positive.
I spent most of Gears 4 as an onyx 1-2 player. I was very irritated by the ranking system in Gears 5 seemingly restricting to me to Silver. I once won 4/5 placement matches and go places in silver ! Previously, when I rose in to gold 2 I would be punished heavily for any losses by the ranking system until I fell back down to silver. Has anyone else recently rapidly gained rank?
