Climbing the Ladder: How to Earn a League Promotion

Each new ladder season, we see many players on the community forums asking, “What do I need to do to earn a League promotion?” This post should provide you with enough information to answer that question.

One way to almost guarantee a promotion by next season is to earn the number of division ladder points given in the corresponding table entry below by December 13, in anticipation of a December 20 season roll.*

Q: Is this the only way to be promoted?
A: No, this is just one fairly reliable way. Some players may be promoted before reaching this number, and a rare few may remain in their current league after reaching the value. This rare few can expect a mid-season promotion if they maintain their skill level during the next season.

Q: How do I get my ladder points that high?
A: The only way to gain these points is to win more than you lose for a sustained period. For example, if you look at your match history and have won at least 12 of your last 20 games, you’re on the right track. Keep it up!

*Note:This assumes season 4 ends the week of December 19. This date is subject to change.
