We are very excited about the participation and outcome of the first run of our new Skill Rating based system, and hope that you all have enjoyed it as much as we have. In order to maintain health and balance of this new system, each Season will begin with a "Skill Squish" of sorts. This will ensure that the range of Skill Rating numbers won’t massively expand over time, and keeps the ladders competitive.
In general, this will not have any impact on your Grand Arena experience. This will not change what Division or League are in. It will not impact your ability to reach the next Division (IE if you could win your next round and move up to the division you will still do so). It will not affect your daily rewards payouts.
There’s really not much it will change, but when you see your Skill Rating slightly change next week, now you know why.
