There will be a new, persistent rating system that should keep top-rated players facing other top-rated players, regardless of the bracket in which their current team sits. We'll have more information to come on this soon.
We don't have a lot of information on how this new rating system will work, but hopefully it will allow you to play with friends and team hop a bit more. We will keep you updated as more news on this system is released.
