OK, I'm fail. When I click on each game nothing happens. What exactly do you click on?
well, when i click on the game, it takes me to the score summary, then i click on the opponents name, which opens a dropdown list of links, one of which is their profile

You have to do it from in-game. You can't do it from the website.

Will try tonight. I know I've tried this before, but I've never gotten it to work. I'm sure I'm missing something.
the system definitely needs some work for promoting people who don't play 25 games a day. I play maybe 3, 2v2 (with a friend, not random) games per day, and don't get promoted. We strangely placed into bronze, and only play gold/platinum players, winning probably 2/3 of the games. But still we are in bronze.
wow are you bugged or something? lol 41-18 and still not gold
The system should be putting you up so you can get closer to a 50/50 w/l ratio
If you do not get to platinum/ diamond soon, you should rage at blizzard :D
Hey Nick,

I had the same problem for awhile, the system is currently checking what league to place you in and it wants to make sure before you make the jump to diamond. I was in bronze league by accident when I first started and I was beating Diamond players as well. You do have a couple gold losses thworn in there so the system could be figuring out if you should be in Diamond or Platinum atm. Keep playing and your promo will come. Most likely in the form of hifh plat or low diamond. I ranked up my bronze points to 1000 before i got my promo get only 25 points from diamond players D= so i know how you feel.

You can sort of get an idea as to what is happening. After placement I was getting paired against Diamond players immediately. I played against some Platinum players, but they were all Platinum players who had very few games played and a high win ratio, which suggests their MMR was well within Diamond range.
the same thing happened to me, no worries here! what happened with ranks is, because of resource use and units loss / gain, also time is a factor to it as well... i was a VERY HIGH level gold and now i'm diamond, i went from gold to diamond because every game i played was against a med / low level diamond, so no worries here, keep winning and you'll be promoted to diamond
I've been #1 platinum in my division for 3 days, just under 700 points and still no promotion. I've looked at some of the diamond leagues and my w/l and points are obscenely higher than a few of them.

I'm pretty sure that the promotion system is slightly buggy.
Shocking you are #6 in a diamond league.

The system does not promote you until it finds your ceiling. Once it finds your ceiling it puts you there. You can go 200 games before being promoted but go from bronze to diamond because you don't lose enough for the game to figure out how good you are.

These threads are so lame and tiresome
Same problem I am in Gold League and I am ahead by 100 points in my league division. I have beaten platinum's diamond's but still in Gold.
So what happens if you are terrible when you start playing and you almost always losing 5+ more games than winning but you suddenly figured lots of stuff out and turned the corner.

Im imagining a situation where your mmr and sigma have tightened up but you start hitting a big win streak. Then what?
looks like your in diamond now, so no worries. Just have to be patient sometimes, you must of lost some matches that really threw your mmr, probably just took awhile to correct.
