Inexplicable Rank Loss

For some unorthodox reason I log on to find that all three of  my ranks have strangely decreased by x points despite me not having played a match:

This is my current match history, notice how the red boxes indicate that my ranks should be FFA: 1733, 1v1: 1525 , and Team: 1787. 

However, today I logged on to find:

As you can clearly see:

FFA: 1733 -> 1729 = -4

1v1: 1525 -> 1517 = -8

Team: 1787 -> 1782 = -5

I doubt this issue is to do with inactivity because I'm very active: I play daily and nobody has access to my account except me. 

This is the third time this has now occurred. At first, I abstained from complaining because it seemed trivial, but now the total rank loss has accumulated to approximately 15-20 points on all three game types, and it doesn't look to discontinue. 

I'm not too bothered about receiving compensation, I just want this fixed. Thank you.

There is special decrease for the top 50 ffa/team/1v1 but idk how exactly it works so I can't tell if it's that or actually a bug.

Theres rank decrease every sunday morning which explain ur decrease in 1v1 and teams. I can't explain why you dropped in FFA. I also dropped rank in FFA and 1v1 because I'm top 50.

To explain it in detail:

1vs1 and teamranking belongs to the "top-50-rule". The places 1-50 of each ranking lose 5% of the difference to the 51. place. This weekly reduce this there to keep the top places active = no easy ranksave possible with noobgames.

The FFA rank is reducing for everyone by the same amount of rank. I've written about this here already: http://forum.curvefever.com/content/ranklose-without-reason

Seems that Destin. is correct with the reason for the FFA decrease.

So everything can be explained!

It happened twice in the last 3 days for me (-1 and -8), so it's not weekly :S

It is weekly! Every Sunday at 5:30 Amsterdam time(see my signature) there are reduces. At no other time(except for cheaters) there will be a rankdecrease.

With your "-1" you probably mean something like 1515+2=1516, but this can also be correct. Curvefever just shows integers, but behind the shown rank, there is the true rank. So if you see your rounded rank with 1515, it can also be 1514,6 or 1515,4. It's the same with the rankwin/-lose. If you get 1514,6+1,6=1516,2 it shows 1515+2=1516 cause only the rounded numbers are used. Ofcourse other way around is also possible 1515,4+2,4=1517,8->1515+2=1518

Hello Eriky,

NOWODNY2 has answered correctly. There is no bug, just a weekly inflation caused by a current significant inactivity. You didn't lose -1, it's just a common rounding of ranks displayed in your rank page because you can't see see the number after the coma.

Best regards

It has been answered, no panic, it's just rank inflation
