^ These rating systems are easily manipulated when one roflstomps. Keep the ratings close such that people don't just flip back and forth because of an upset in a single game. Case in point, SBI/JQ have been beating on each other for a while, yet both are still in #1/#2 seeds... because the ratings are close. Back in the HoD days, JQ and SBI both would go from that #2 to #4 then back again. Everyone's sort of catching on to the system and sort of seeing that it's not really worth it to +695 anymore, all you do is give yourself a future headache when you bump up a tier but aren't ready for it, then get bumped back down to see the same faces again.
so, who on JQ will support you and MMAC intentionally losing matches on behalf of JQQ once JQ falls down to Tier 2 (which is a real possibility if SoS comes in second next week, given that by the end of the week your rating will probably not have changed much, certainly less than the 32 points predicted)? Or is it all just a bunch of BS and the jade emporer is only pretending they control an entire server's outcome?
