Each new ladder season, we see a large amount of questions on the community forums asking, “What do I need to do to earn a League promotion?” Therefore, to better answer that question and bring about some additional transparency, we’ve put together some information to shed a little light on it.
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 February 7, in anticipation of a February 14 Season roll. (*Date subject to change.)
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 within-season promotion if they maintain their skill level during the next season.
Q: How do I get my points that high?
A: The only way to get this high is to win more than you lose for a sustained period of time. 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 5 ends the week of February 14. This date is subject to change.
