Just wondering if many other people are affected by the tier 3/tier 4 no man's land. I can sometimes compete at tier 4, but I only get 30% accuracy on a good day, compared to many players who hit 40 and above... I accept I am not meant to beat these guys and do not mind losing - it's impressive .
However the problem i have is the kicking of the bottom players in tier 4 for not being good enough, and the kicking of the top players in tier 3 for being too good. There is obviously a middle tier missing here somewhere.
Also the speed of tier change is quite rapid, today i started at tier 4, went to tier 3 and lo and behold i'm back to tier 4...huzzah! (CA i am referring to here)
This post is not complaining about the game, do not read it as such. It is merely trying to suss out if many others suffer this conundrum.
Anyway Lots of love and happy fragging,
There are dozens of threads about this around. Mostly for CA, some for FFA.
I was there once for CA. In the end, you just have to work at improving your game. Get relentless in Tier 3 so you're ready for T4. Spec the T4 guys when you spend so much time dead in those early games.
You can also try using Handicap to keep yourself in T3 longer if that's where you're comfortable. But when you start finishing mid-pack with HC set, you're going to get called out on it.
The main challenge is that the player base isn't large enough to support 5 tiers. Even if it were, you'd end up stuck between 4/5 eventually.
that and tier 4 is mostly filled with the scum of the galaxy. mostly.
i see no problem with 5 tiers for CA
