I keep hearing people say there are 5 tiers now, or some people say there are 6. The tier rating bit on the page here still says there are 4. Where does each tier begin and end? It used to go up to 100, but I checked my rating on a CTF server and it was 111. I'm tier 4 on CTF according to the stats page, but the bar is all gold with no red. Is THAT tier 5? I notice on FFA I'm tier 4, but the bottom portion of the bar is still red. I checked my rating on a CA server and it was only 39. How can that be the case? I was tier 4 on CA, though recently dropped to 3.
I hear people saying the ratings aren't accurate, but I guess it depends on the player. I never tier-slum or winjoin, or dodge a shuffle that puts me in a nooby team, and I only play on unrestricted servers during the Xmas holiday. (Oh, and that annoying one on Halloween where everyone just camped on the damn roof)
Anyway...what's the TRUTH about the tiers now? How many are there, and what skill rating does each tier encompass?
