    lmfao if you want a gold badge just play 4s. It's just that easy...

    Do you realize that the teams that would potentially move down from plat would be the same teams you would play in low platinum? Are you that afraid of playing maybe 2 games all season that you might not be able to compete in?

    Why is this even a discussion?

    How do I press snooze until the season starts?

    3rd Order of the EZIC Star - Folded

    S20 - Last season of Gold
    1st Slammin JAMMERS
    2nd Dedoris
    3rd AyyLmao

    All 3 of those teams played platinum next season after Gold was removed, though I clearly remember Alto threatening to fold if his team (Dedoris) got moved up.

    Gold hasn't exactly had a good track record of being a stepping stone into platinum (at least for teams) with only 6 of the 32 top 3 teams from pre S20 Gold playing more than 1 season in Platinum (after playing gold technically Bonus! and RANCH played multiple seasons of Platinum before Gold even existed) 13/32 teams played Platinum at some point after gold not counting S20 (3 of which folded early in the only season of platinum they were in). It would be a lot more accurate if specific players were being tracked but I'd rather not go through that much trouble.

    S15/16/17/18/19 Saw 4 teams go from Gold to Platinum 2 of which died after 3 or 4 matches. (I'm being generous with counting Silver Savages here)

    S9/10/11/12/13/14 Saw 10 teams go from Gold to Platinum 1 of which died after 4 matches. (This does have 1 extra season but still the move up rate was much better for early gold)

    Gold died cause teams/players didn't want to move up anymore. Same will happen to Silver if teams still pussy out.
