    If you still can't, here's how to do:
    1 Choose weakest player on a low skill server.
    2 Check his match history and search for even lower skilled players
    3 if you find one - load his profile
    4 repeat 2-3

    This way it's possible to find many players with T1 bar lightened, as well as players that are completely new to the game and played only a few matches so far.

    I won't give you names, would you like to be marked as 'low skill tier 1 player' in forums? The player may improve, next year may be in Tier 3.

    Remember all new players start in T3. It is a fact if they are T1 so nobody can complain. It is open to anybody to view. You are not saying the player is a liar, cheater, wife beater, ahole nothing more or nothing less than their current Tier. Again their is no T1, if you are in T1 please speak up so we can view your stats.

    Just played a T1 CA guy - mehn. He had joined a T4 server though -- I thought that wasn't possible!?!?

    U thought? Since when? Uptiering has always been possible/ an issue o.O
    German RA3 since 2001 [p]lague, rdm team-radium, n!faculty, pRophecy
    European CTF since 2009

    Competitive? I beat friggin battletoads, get lost...

    Censorship AND Infractions for inappropriate language? I think that's a bit redundant, try-hards

    I thought you couldn't go from 1 to 4, though. It's bad enough allowing +2 (2 to 4), but +3 should really not be allowed.

    Pro tip: you can log out of your account and into another one.

    I use the alt for coaching mainly, so I downgraded it during evaluation period on purpose; it's currently stuck in T2 in both CA and CTF and I usually find it almost impossible to join a green server. Using Frankfurt by default (the most popular location by far), but often checking Paris, Amsterdam etc. too.

    I don't know why we're talking about Tier 1 anyway. It's supposed to be pretty empty. My intervention was in regards to the affirmation that 95% of the players were in Tier 3+4, which is wrong. There should be about 50% of the playerbase in T3 and 25% in T2 and T4. T1 is pretty much negligible.

    To suggest there is no Tier 1 is simply not accurate. Tier 1 makes up about 10-15% of our active player base. They do exist, and there are usually a handful of servers running. The gameplay of players at that level is very radically different from how higher skilled matches are played, it is quite distinguishable. The most popular maps in CA are either Hearth or Hell's Gate Redux; there's rarely more than 1 or 2 servers running Campgrounds.

    Thank you. To my amazement he is T1 and I am now T1. So maybe groups of people can be down Tiered as skills ebb and flow. Thank you Sponge for providing input to the conversation. My real concern was I thought if I was not T1 then there wasn't a T1. At the time I was showing T2 with ungodly stats. Gentlemen thank you all of the input.
