    Not my tier even though it's my tier

    Dunno if this was reported already (didn't find it), but it happened to me for the first time today.

    I had a friend in a Duel on a server that said Skill matched when i clicked to preview. But when i tried to join, i got an error message saying user skill tier is not permitted by the server.

    Or is this not a bug, but just some extra conditions i'm not aware of? If that's the case, it should somehow be noted in the preview that i'm not allowed to join for whatever reason. The error message was kind of ambiguous as well because i'm not sure if my skill is too low or too high.
    Why are there no videos of John Carmack playing Quake?

    Don't worry about tiers and duel because they aren't usually accurate. If you cant get into the server and you want to duel a friend, spawning an unrestricted one is probably the best option.

    They are aware that it's screwed up though.

    Simply put :
    Duel servers have a tier but are not displayed as gray/green/yellow/red according to it. I believe what's used is the difference between your skillrating and the skillrating of the best player in that server. So yes, you can find servers that are of a tier too low for you still appearing green.
