By the way we are just seeing gold 1 players now. There is also platinum and then diamond above this so I think this going to continue. I think they have designed it so that we all have to crawl up unless you get lucky in the ranking stage. And doing it this way means each rank is appropriately filled.
I mean, the way this type of ranking system works in general requires someone to crawl up to begin with. Basically, it needs a LARGE
amount of people to saturate all the ranks. Until it gets that amount, it spreads slowly. Hence, why we're in gold and not diamond yet.
