Okay, here we go: Normally, when you're trying to rank up, you can tell the average number of games you need to win to increase your rank. For example, when I was on my TS 49, I needed roughly 8 wins to go up. I KNOW that it's actually based on the ranks of players and this average isn't terribly accurate; I'm just trying to keep things simple here. However, when you reach a 50, you obviously can't progress any further. So what happens to the wins you gain on the 50? I can say for certain that if you have 10 wins on a 50, you're probably not going to go down to a 49 from 1 loss. So basically, view it this way: Each rank has a "ceiling" that you'll hit after a certain number of wins. When you hit the ceiling, you rank up. Each rank also has a floor that makes you go down. But with a 50, where exactly is the "ceiling"? Does it just go on forever? For example: Let's say I get 100 wins on a TS 50 in a row (not that I could do that, it's just an example). Do I have to lose 100 times in a row to go back down? Or is there an invisible ceiling on a 50? Even if I got 100 wins, only 25 would matter, and I'd go down after 25 losses? I know this question isn't really relevant anyway; it's purely for discussion value and interest. I'm just curious if anyone actually has an answer to this or not. My guess is that wins are just tallied on the 50 forever, making the system more and more certain that you belong there, but I have no idea for sure.
