    I agree. Just recently I was paired against a rank 1 Diamond player who has won every single one his matches with 2 gate. I checked his game history, most games were won within 4 minutes, but some were 6 minutes long. People like that dont deserve to be classified as "the best" because they are in a diamond league. I feel that we should all start at bronze league, and only a select few should move up at a time, while the rest of us stay in bronze.

    Actually I barely laddered even when I was in plat. It's not like there's no competition after you get into diamond. Work yourself up to rank 1 diamond, then work yourself up in the global ranking.

    I was even gonna add another question to the thread but didnt pay attention to it - how much Ladder Points. When someone says 'Points' I was only thinking of 'Achievement points' that has no relation to skill. But league/ladder points is something that matters and I didn't pay attention until yesterday when at TL this became clear for me. Ladder points and Win:Loss ratio means more than just league to distinguish among players in the same league.
