    Weird Problem with ladder ranking going from 5 to 6

    Hi,

    I had a weird one recently - as I approached 99% on echelon 5, I must have beat a really high placed player as I jumped up around 150 global places.

    However, since then, my %age is at zero and I'm still showing as a 5 and I haven't had a single ladder jump since (been about 2 weeks) despite beating level 6's and 7's and coming first multiple times.

    Oddly, I can still jump places by completing new tracks on the solo campaign (currently on 98).

    I know it gets harder to get places as you move up - but to not jump one place in 2 weeks doesn't seem right.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    If you restart your game within tonight or tomorrow at the latest, you should see your ranking as it should be.
    Please tell us if it's fixed tomorrow.

    Hi - no change.

    I've read that this is normal and it just needs more people to reach Level 6 - is that right? There are already level 6's out there so not sure how that works - does anyone know?

    Do I have to wait for a level 6 to drop down (by not playing?)?

    I've never really understood the exact workings of the ladder system - I get that you go up by beating people above you, but what happens if you get really high up then dont play? No-one can beat you. Does that mean that the people in the top 500 or so just move between themselves and those below have to wait for an invite to the party?

    Any detail around this (even if its speculation!) would be appreciated

    Thanks

    This is ridiculous now - I still haven't moved onto Echelon 6. I haven't gained a ladder place in over a month. I've invested a lot of time and effort into this game and not being able to progress is really putting me off playing - especially as I'm now moving DOWN the ladder

    Can anyone shed light on WHY this has happened and how to fix it?

    How many people at 100% of 5 are needed to trigger a new batch of Level 6's?

    I take it its not linked to the Solo Campaign? I've got gold on 103 tracks - that shouldn't make any difference should it?

    Hi

    To increase your ranking, there are two things to do: playing online and having medals in the solo campaign.
    On which plateform are you playing?

    Hi AlinoA

    I'm playing on PS4 - I've been going up ladder points in the Solo campaign (onto 105 Golds now).

    However, its online that's not moving - when it switched over from 99% on echelon 5 to 6, it went back to 5 and 0% and, despite many wins and beating people on level 6, 7 and (occasionally) 8 or 9 over the last 4 and a half weeks, I've not got a single ladder place and I'm still stuck on 0% on echelon 5 - I reckon I've played hundred+ rounds since this happened and played pretty well (most of the time!) so I'd expect to have gained at least one ladder point by now.

    Thanks

    Hi The_Siman,

    You have well 60 000 LP and now for keeping on winning Ladder Points, you have to play on servers whose the echelon is 6 at least. If you play on servers echelon 5, you won't win Ladder Points.

    HI,

    Do you play on servers whose the echelon is at least 6 if you have the same issue?
