Team League Portraits
2018 Season 2 Changes
– Your MMR does not fluctuate significantly during placements anymore, this means you division drop or gain compared to last season will be less significant.
– The maximum number of divisions you can gain or lose during placements compared to last season is now 5 divisions. A player who ended the previous season at Gold 1 cannot fall lower than Silver 1, or rise higher than Platinum 1, during their 10 placement games this season, regardless of how uncertain the system is about their MMR.
– First time ranked players cannot be seeded higher than Platinum 3 when they start placement matches. This is an older rule, but when combined with the changes mentioned above, the highest those players can exit placements will now be Diamond 3.
Example: A player with a Master level MMR in Quick Match, who decides to step into Hero League for the first time, will be initially seeded into placements at Platinum 3. If that player proceeds to win all of their placement games, they can be placed at a maximum of Diamond 3.
