League Play Strange Placement


I have a question regarding league play, has anyone ever been randomly moved to a lower division?


I have been platinum for pretty much all of black ops 2, last season I was moved to master (finally). This season I placed platinum again.


After 1 game (which I won - top scored in game), I was moved to iron.... I have since been moved to 2 other iron divisions... lol


Does anyone know of this ever happening to them or anyone else? Not here to moan, just wondering if it is a bug or a common occurence?


Activision support were kind enough just to say play better and you will move up the ranks, ive done that...

    I've never had this problem, but I'm not good enough to get out of Iron. The main problem I have with League Play is the "Fair matchmaking" which matches Iron 218 (Me) with Master 37 (Random dude). How is THAT fair matchmaking?

    Yeah, a friend of me got the same problem, he got placed platinum and after 1 match he got 'promoted' to iron. Strange things happening with bo2. I lost 1220 point today while I won the game:S

    I have had the same deal..where I won 4/5 placement matches having either top score and/or second along with playing the objective. After my last match it told me awaiting placement so i won about 5 matches after that still no division so I got off and came back the next day and I'm in iron division.... Yet it puts me up against platinum and masters and end up beating them, no promotion;however, I get offline for a few hours and come back been promoted to bronze. It waits until I get offline to promote me instead of promoting me while Im playing. I think it is just the PS3 version of BO2 that it glitched out and still have bugs..


    I play under my lady name on 360 playing League Play and I'm in master's and I get promoted while I'm playing;however, you have to deal with so many booters that is isn't even funny.Now it's just sad and pathetic!!!!!!


    So it's not just you, it's other people as well.. I know for a fact that normally when you win 4/5 placement you get either high gold placement or platinum placement, but on placement you get iron division

    I play on a PS3 too. I won 5/5 of my placement games with a 3.0 K/D ratio or higher, while playing the objective and getting top player each time... I then had to wait 3 days of "Awaiting placement" only to be put into bronze league, yet I still enter lobbies with an entire enemy team of masters while my team ends up being bronze or iron league.
