In Saturday's post we noted that the visual threat levels were off given the current curve. We also discovered another critical issue with low-level matchmaking that will be fixed with this current patch as well (fewer wild 1 v 4 matches).
One of the temporary side effects of the change though is that new players will appear to be Silver 2 during their first match before moving around properly. In fact, what SHOULD happen is that for the first few matches the player has "NO" rating, until we have some idea of what direction he/she is moving.
We probably are likely to perform yet another update later this week as we continue tweaking the system.
Today we are patching the game at 2:30pm PST / 5:30pm EST / 22:30 GMT and 23:30 CEST, and this would take about 1 hour.

The servers went live again 4:15pm PST after a slight security patch delay. Enjoy the game!
