Hello, friends- The ranking system was updated with a few new features.
This is the new base points table for online events:
|Event & Tier||League||Invitation||Qualification||Groups||Playoffs - UB||Playoffs - LB||Final|
|Online - Tier 1||160||64||192||128||256||192||512|
|Online - Tier 2||80||32||96||64||128||96||256|
|Online - Tier 3||60||24||72||48||96||72||192|

|Online - Tier 6||20||8||24||16||32||24||64|

|Online - Tier 8||10||4||12||8||16||12||32|
|Online - Tier 9||5||2||6||4||8||6||16|

The original points system didn't distinguish between single-map matches (BO1) and multi-map matches (BO3 / BO5). There is now a 2x multiplier for multi-map matches.
The original points system used linear points degradation over 360 days. The system now emphasises recent results by having points degrade in three stages:
During Stage 1, a team loses max. 6% (1/17th) of the points it gained from an event. During Stage 2, a team loses max. an additional 23% (4/17th) of the points from an event. Finally, during Stage 3, a team loses the remaining 71% (12/17th) of the points from an event.
A simpler way to look at it is on a per-day basis. Each day during Stage 2, the points from an event lose value 2x as fast as during Stage 1. Each day during Stage 3, the points from an event lose value 2x as fast as during Stage 2 (or 4x as fast compared to Stage 1).
These features (including examples) are also updated in the article explaining the ranking system.
