What happens if teams split a match? Say that my team is a Silver team with a ranking of 1650 and we split two sets with a Bronze team with a ranking of 1450.
Each set affects the ranking separately. So, the set that you win would increase your ranking by 8 points, but the set you lose would decrease your ranking by 24 points. So, your new ranking would go down by 16 points to 1634. The Bronze team’s rating would go up to 1466. If teams split, then the lower rated team’s rating goes up and the higher rated team’s rating will go down. This means that splitting a match can be very good for lower-rated teams.
