Rating Shield

Postby freightrain12 » 09 Feb 2015, 08:38

Please direct me to the forum topic if this is a duplicate.

In essence what does a rating shield do? Does it protect you of going down in rating or does it protect your rating from moving at all? What is the point of the rating shield? Im just very confused with it..Thank you for dealing with a new kid on the block!

Protects it from going down. It can still go up.

It only works on surrendered positions - when you join a game in progress. Every time you play a ranked game from the beginning, it charges. You can then join a surrendered position and use that shield for the game. Once you join a surrendered spot, your shield will be drained. If you quit that game, you CAN and will lose points. If you play until you win or are eliminated, your points can go up, but cannot go down.
