    believe it or not, thats why some people never get out of tier 4 and ruin games saying they shouldn't be in tier4, because precisely looking at majkifajki's last match where he quit he would've been dragged back down to t3.

    logic and brains are something i wish more people on these forums had.

    also, if it wouldnt be as i said, and a quit (which also adds a loss) does affect your rating, i could just go and quit 10 games now and be tier3 ... think about what you believe before you comment thoughtlessly.

    Ontopic though: If you want to stay tier3, you can put a handicap that will keep you in there.

    back in beta i remember with 5 tiers.. played drunk with mates on a server, and when i woke up i was 2 tiers lower x)

    however, drunk styles can also be in your favor, no joke! makes you unpredictable to a new level.

    I will, one day. Where are you? It seems that you decided not to be friends anymore.
    (cries)
    Anyway, what Swampy says is 100% true. You should play stoned and you will drop to Tier -1 where it takes 15 minutes for the launched rocket to hit the target, and the Quad actually ADDS HP to your target.

    You are thinking about this from the other side as that I'm thinking.
    You're thinking about people 'stuck' in tier 4 because of quitting.
    I am thinking about pros staying in tier 3 by abusing this quitting.

    I disagree with the "balance itself with time" part of your post Flash; I actually gave up on CA since I kept bouncing back from T3 to T4 - I'm either T3 or I'm T4. The fact the game couldn't figure out where I belong between June and August got me fed up and I just stopped playing altogether for a few months lol.

    The tier system in general seems to be a failure to me; as far as I can tell there are 3 levels of play in a gametype:

    1) arena gods - you know these players within moments of a game starting; they're swarming around single-handedly picking apart your team in some cases

    2) arena veterans - players who have played a while, know the ropes, but never truly ascended to greatness (but enough of a threat to torment a beginner level player)

    3) hey, I'm new here - straight forward enough I suppose.

    All I'm trying to say is with the current setup; if you're stuck as a "tweener" who is good enough to get bumped up constantly to a higher tier but not quite strong enough to stay there the game can become highly frustrating. :~)

    I'd be curious to see how things would play out if the tiers were temporarily taken offline and see what sort of feedback comes to the message board. There would be obvious pros and cons expected. Still, curious..

    I was recently promoted to T4 in FFA, and suffer the same beatings, but as said above, I think things will level out over time; you'll either become a true T4 player or drop back down. As a side note, is there anything wrong with starting a new profile to start over? I only recently got back into Quake, and all my online play has been restricted to one or two games a week on public wi-fi since I'm currently at work on a cruise ship. I feel a bit handicapped, but then again, I guess things will work themselves out once I get home and increase the sample size for ranking. For example, I'm only rated T2 for CA, but when my connection is decent I can waste T2 players.

    -Cheers

    Oh, and if you could go ahead and never use the term "Tweener" on this forum again...that would be greeeaaattt.
